Slated to appear in the first two episodes, Superman will first be seen visiting his cousin, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), in National City. Casting is currently underway for the iconic role.
"Greg [Berlanti], Ali [Adler] and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said on Monday, adding that they “cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!"
Superman appeared as a faceless figure in Supergirl’s first episode and has made brief cameos in a handful of episodes. A younger version of Supergirl’s famous cousin also appeared in a season one sequence.
