Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – “Supergirl” Season 2 will be featuring Superman, the cousin of Kara, the lead character on The CW series, and fans are asking to see Tom Welling to take on the role.
Superman has been expected to be introduced sooner or later as he has been referenced to multiple times in Season 1. Glimpses of Superman were also shown in “Supergirl” Season 1 but the Man of Steel was never really featured as a real character on the show.
According to reports, he will be seen in Season 2 in the first two episodes of the show. It is unclear, however, if he will remain to be seen somewhere in the latter episodes of Season 2 or in the upcoming episodes of the show.
One of the executive producers of the show, Andrew Kreisberg , made the announcement earlier this week. He said that he and his co-executive producers, Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are beyond thrilled over Clark Kent joining the world of “Supergirl.” They also did not reveal who will be the actor taking on the role but said that they are excited to see who will be the next man donning the red cape.
The more famous cousin of Supergirl , Superman, was intentionally not shown in the first season of the series as they did not want people to focus on him since Kara is a new character.
As for Welling, he played the role of Superman on the hit TV series “Smallville.” Superman was also recently played by Henry Cavill on the big screen on “Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice.”
Many fans took to twitter to say the following: “Superman coming to # Supergirl Season 2. Time for some Justice…get Tom Welling suited up.” Another fan wrote, “Someone free Tom Welling’s schedule and get him on the show. NOW.”
Welling talked about the possibility of having a crossover with “Supergirl” and “Smallville” but he said that it might not make sense. They have their own Supergirl on their show so he suggested that “Supergirl” should have their own Clark Kent. Also he said that “Supergirl” seems to be a bit more modern as opposed to “Smallville.”
