tylerThe Hollywood Reporter has posted the news that will finally get to see Kara’s cousin, Kal-El (aka Superman) in Season 2! He is scheduled to appear in the first two episodes of Season 2 (wonder if it has anything to do with whoever was in the pod….hmmm)

Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said:

“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. Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season, and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!”

We “saw” Superman in shadows during Season 1 and he would message Kara but that was about the extent of it. I’m sure James is going to be excited to see his buddy in National City. So are we!

E! Online reported that the role of TV Superman is going to be Tyler Hoechlin. Andrew said about working with Tyler:

“Greg and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.
