Is Superman set to appear briefly in the Supergirl TV series?

Looks likely…

Project Casting Call has just put out the following post: “Central Casting is looking for photo doubles and twins to work on an upcoming Supergirl TV pilot filming in March. Producers are looking for a photo double that is 5’11 or taller and has a ripped physique. In addition, producers are looking for twins to work on an upcoming scene filming on the Supergirl TV pilot.”

The fact that it’s for a photo double would imply Superman will only appear fleetingly in the show, which has been rumoured for a while now.

Based on the DC Comics character, the Supergirl tells the story of Kara Zor-El, who was born on the planet Krypton, but escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin Superman. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

No word on when the series will air yet though…

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….
