Supergirl understandably wanted to keep the emphasis on its title hero throughout Season 1, rather than risk any potential Superman overshadowing, though the series’ bizarre habit of featuring the character just offscreen had many wondering if TV-movie boundaries came into play. The arrival of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman in Season 2 certainly changes that, though producers say they were actually surprised by Warner Bros. decision to let them use the Man of Steel.

We’ve seen enough Supermen and DC heroes in recent weeks, that it’s easy to forget Syfy intends to move forward with its bizarre Super-prequel Krypton. Now, Georgina Campbell has landed the leading role of someone likely to be Zod’s ancestor.
Perhaps keeping coy in her CW move, Supergirl has notably trailed behind Arrow, Flash or Legends of Tomorrow in releasing any official previews of the new season. That said, the first official photo brings Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman down to stand alongside his cousin (and maybe even throw a little shade Zack Snyder’s way).
Supergirl has an understandable habit of introducing characters once or twice removed from the core Superman cast, but the arrival of the big guy himself will bring another notable DC name. Season 2 confirms that Metallo will square off against Supergirl and her cousin, as played by Frederick Schmidt.
FOX pre-Batman drama Gotham owes at least some debt to The CW’s pre-Superman series Smallville, but could the two ever actually meet? Superman appears to have been freed up for DC’s TV series, and Gotham’s own Bruce Wayne wants to see a young Clark Kent crossing over as soon as possible.
Look, in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a Goodyear tire! No, it’s the new Superman costume from Justice League. Seemingly confirming rumors that the Man of Steel will be wearing a black suit in Zack Snyder’s next superhero epic, Henry Cavill shared a new close-up shot of the Superman costume from the set of the upcoming film — and although you can’t see the entire thing, it is most certainly black.
The moment “Luthor Corp” signs started popping up around the Supergirl Season 2 set, it looks like at least someone tied to Superman’s nemesis was inbound. And so it is, that Katie McGrath has landed the role of Lex Luthor’s sister Lena, but what surprising twist does Lena’s emergence mean for Lex?
Fans are more anxious than ever for a look at Supergirl Season 2, its first on The CW, and with a bonafide Superman, and the Vancouver set brings all kinds of DC goodies. Looks like we’ll see Kara’s version of Metropolis and Luthor Corp in the latest set photos, plus … Stephen Amell?
As tends to be the case with live-action superhero costumes, Supergirl got ahead of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman suit debut with a glossy first look at the new Man of Steel posed with his cousin. Now, sneak a much more detailed peek with new Supergirl Season 2 set photos, as Superman goes up, up and away!
Supergirl surprised us all with the news that Season 2 would bring an actual Superman alongside its move to The CW, and we’ve got your first look at the new Man of Steel. See Tyler Hoechlin suited up as Superman in the first official photo from Supergirl Season 2!
