‘Supergirl’ Finally Reveals Superman … As a Fever Dream Child Actor
After a season’s worth of Supergirl awkwardly cutting around any actual Superman appearances on the small screen, Kal-El will finally come forth in this coming Monday’s Alan Moore-inspired “For the Girl Who Has Everything.” Well, we’ll meet him as a child. On Krypton. In a dream. Anyway, here’s some photos!
CBS released its first photos of Daniel DiMaggio in the role of a young Kal-El, as envisioned by Kara under the influence of a “Black Mercy” plant that grabbed her at home in the closing moments of Monday’s “Bizarro.” Initial casting reports for a young Kal-El caused some confusion, given that the future Superman was still a baby at the time of his and Kara’s evacuation of Krypton, and an adult by her arrival on Earth.
Additionally, the first full photo set:
So reads the official synopsis of “For the Girl Who Has Everything”:
A PARASITIC ALIEN TRAPS KARA IN A DREAM WORLD WHERE HER HOME PLANET WAS NEVER DESTROYED, ON “SUPERGIRL,” MONDAY, FEB. 8
Kara’s friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed. Also, Alex, Hank and the DEO must fend off a Kryptonian attack while Kara is out of commission.
In the meantime, check out the latest teasers below, and prepare to meet Super … Kal. Or probably just Kal. Also, the hallucination thing.
