(KBCW) – Casting has begun for a new Superman. No worries, Henry Cavill still has his part in the DC Cinematic Universe, however, since there is a separation between the big screen storyline and the television world, The CW is looking for their Man of Steel for Supergirl.
Superman is set to make his appearance on the first two episodes of season two of Supergirl on The CW. In season one, he’s been spoken of as the not-so-present, third person and seen from afar in the CBS finale. This time around, he will appear very much in person.READ MORE: Serinda Swan On Her Character Dr. Jenny Cooper In The CW's 'Coroner': 'The Humanity Seen In Jenny Is Really Resonating With People'
For season two, producers Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are thrilled to bring the iconic superhero back onto television.
“We cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape.” Kreisberg said. “Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl, according to Deadline.com.READ MORE: Amy Smart On 'DC's Stargirl': 'It's Pure Entertainment'
This opens the possibility of the guy with big “S” on his chest to show up on other DC shows like The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. It would be interesting to see him interact with the previous “Supermen” Dean Cain, who now plays Jeremiah Danvers on Supergirl and Brandon Routh who plays The Atom on “Legends”.
Fan favorite, Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent on “Smallville” recently told Cinemablend.com that he was not approached about the role on the new CW Supergirl series. Welling’s Superman was not fully seen in the red & blue suit for the Smallville show’s finale.
