Superman Flies In To Lend A Hand In First Clip From Supergirl Season 2
The CW has released the first clip from Supergirl season 2, and it features Clark Kent heading into action as Superman to lend his cousin a hand as she attempts to save some sort of experimental aircraft from crashing to Earth. While the character has been teased in the show before, this marks the first time the duo have actually interacted.
Despite the fact that Supergirl has moved from CBS to The CW (which involved some budget cuts), it’s also worth noting that the special effects here are actually pretty flawless and look quite good. For more on what to expect from the season 2 premiere, titled “The Adventures of Supergirl,” here’s the official synopsis:
When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.
As of right now, Superman is only expected to appear in the first two episodes of Supergirl, but there’s no way that’s all we’ll see of the Man of Steel this year. Him showing up in the planned four night crossover with The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow seems like an inevitability, and assuming this version of the character is well received, he may become a recurring presence in Supergirl.
Who knows, with two versions of the Fastest Man Alive out there now thanks to Ezra Miller being part of the DC Films Universe, Superman could even get his own show somewhere down the line. For now though, he’ll be making his presence felt in Supergirl, which returns to The CW early next month.
