The season 2 premiere of Supergirl hasn’t even aired yet, but The CW has already released the synopsis for the second episode. While he’s not mentioned by name, it definitely points to Metallo making his presence felt in National City, something which was rumoured to be the case back when shooting was taking place.
This won’t mark the villain’s first small screen appearance, as he made a memorable appearance in Smallville too, but it will be interesting to see how Supergirl ends up handling him, especially with both her and Superman seemingly set to square off against the Kryptonite powered bad guy. For more on what to expect, here’s the full synopsis for “The Last Children Of Krypton.”
IAN GOMEZ STARS AS SNAPPER CARR — CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez). Glen Winter directed the episode written by Robert Rovner & Caitlin Parrish.
If you’re wondering why Snapper Carr is coming to Supergirl, it’s because Calista Flockhart will only be making sporadic appearances during season 2 due to budget cuts and the show’s move from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Of course, far more exciting than his debut is the fact that the Man of Steel will be butting heads with Martian Manhunter.
Whether or not we’ll get chance to see them fight remains to be seen, especially as it’s thought that Superman is only sticking around for the first two episodes of Supergirl. He’ll no doubt return somewhere down the line, but him and his cousin will first have to get through Metallo.
