Melissa Benoist‘s Supergirl is getting an exciting new addition for season two…Superman!
The character of Superman will make an appearance at the beginning of the second season.
“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,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement to announce the news (via THR). “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!”
The role is currently being cast.
Melissa Beniost calls Supergirl‘s move over to the CW ‘logical’.
The 27-year-old actress spoke to ET earlier this week about moving her hit series from CBS to the CW.
“I think it’s really fitting. It’s the logical fit for us. It’s a really great group to be involved with,” she shared. “What I’m most excited about is we get to kind of linger a little more on certain storylines from the comic books that maybe we didn’t get to do last season. Spread out storylines, which I’m really excited about.”
She added about that big crossover with The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow happening later this year, “We’re all in the same place now!”
Melissa Benoist is all smiles as she hits the red carpet at the premiere of her latest film Lowriders held during opening night of the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival at ArcLight Cinemas’ Cinerama Dome on Wednesday (June 1) in Hollywood, Calif.

Blake Jenner holds hands with his wife Melissa Benoist as they arrive at LAX airport on Thursday (April 14) in Los Angeles.
The couple just returned from New York City, where Blake, 23, was promoting his new film, Everybody Wants Some.
“The funnest days were when we were all together in the house (where the team lives), or doing the disco scene or whatever,” Blake dished to press about the feel of the set. “Throughout everything, man. We were a team on set trying to portray these guys and off the set, in dance rehearsal or shooting the dances, shooting the baseball stuff.”
He added, “I remember when I was doing the pitching stuff on the mound, (co-star) Wyatt Russell was there behind the camera signaling to me, reach your arm back a little more. It was just a constant brotherhood and support system.”
