It looks like our reports of Superman being a presence in the Supergirl TV series was on the money as we’re hearing he has now been cast.

But it’s not what you might think… when Supergirl returns next month the first episode will be called “For The Girl Who Has Everything” and in it we’ll see a young Kal-El who, for the three of you who don’t know, will grow to become Superman.

In the role will be Tales of Halloween and Tiger’s Tail star Daniel DiMaggio (above).

How will he fit into the story? Or the show overall? Well, that’s anyone’s guess right now but here’s the episode synopsis… does it make things clearer?

For The Girl Who Has Everything” – 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.

Supergirl returns on Monday, February 8th

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
