Superman Returning to SUPERGIRL
Ever since Tyler Hoechlin showed up for a couple of episodes in CW’s Supergirl, fans of the Man of Steel have been hankering for more.
According to E! News there wish has been granted as producers have apparently confirmed that Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) cousin is returning for the finale of season two! Kal originally showed up to help his cousin handle a pesky craft from LexCorp and then stuck around for a bit before going back to Metropolis. But National City has missed him since then, particularly since his departure left a return a real possibility.
Back then, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said that he had really enjoyed working with Tyler and that he thought about bringing him back. He said it was “an amazing experience” and that he “selfishly hop[ed] he got to do it again because it really added to the show in a way.”
Of course, the show’s runners want to make sure not to steal Kara’s thunder or make it seem as if she’s not in charge herself. Kreisberg then explained that Kal-El was “really coming in as a supporting character for Kara, to be a friend and a cousin and a mentor.”
Details about the reappearance are as of yet not available. Supergirl airs Mondays on the C.W. at 8 p.m.
