While he was glimpsed in the first series, mostly in silhouette, it looks like Superman is to be a real character in Season 2 of Supergirl, now that it has made the jump from CBS to The CW, DC Comics’ home on TV.

Announcing the news, Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said:

“Greg [Berlanti], Ali [Adler] and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl. Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!

“Any Supergirl viewer well-remembers the awkward lengths to which CBS went to avoid featuring a full appearance from the character, only showing him at a distance, at different ages, or chatting with Kara over instant messages. Understandably, Supergirl wanted to keep the focus on Kara, though it appeared Warner Bros. had trepidation with two live-action versions of the Man of Steel.”

Casting will most likely be announced at some point over the summer, but we really have to say there’s only one choice for us… Smallville’s Tom Welling.

We doubt at this stage it will go that way, but who would you like to see playing the small screen Man of Steel? Let us know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
