"Supergirl" is definitely soaring to greater heights as The CW takes the reins for its Season 2. Melissa Benoist's Supergirl is definitely getting a warm welcome from her fellow DC Comics superheroes on the network, as she's also being joined by her cousin Superman - to be portrayed by Tyler Hoechlin - in her sophomore run.
Here's all the exciting things to look forward to in "Supergirl" Season 2.
Superman is joining the show
In some ways, Clark Kent was a constant presence in Kara's life in "Supergirl" Season 1; however, he was never physically there and only communicated with his cousin through messages. All that is about to change in "Supergirl" Season 2.
"Teen Wolf" star Tyler Hoechlin is suiting up as the Man of Steel in "Supergirl" Season 2. The actor, who grew up watching Dean Cain's portrayal of the superhero in "Lois and Clark," said that he's going to give his own take on the iconic Superman mantle while aiming to "honor the tradition of the character."
"This was something that was fun. It's pure fun and it's Superman as I think he was intended to be, which is just an incredible symbol of hope to kids that they can do anything, and that they can be good people, and that good people can triumph over evil," Hoechlin said about the series' adaptation of Superman, as reported by EW.
There's a Gotham City reference in the season premiere
The DC Comics universe in The CW is expanding every year. While the network has acquired "Supergirl," there's still one more DC-inspired show that's still not on The CW: "Gotham."
"We have this beautiful history with DC, and I like that we get to borrow from this amazing, wonderful canon that we have," executive producer Ali Adler told TVLine about the reference to Batman's city.
The Ben McKenzie-starrer is making waves over at FOX, and it doesn't seem likely that any of its characters will be showing up on The CW soon. Although it's an exciting concept, Adler said the number of crossovers this year will be more than enough to satisfy fans.
"Supergirl" Season 2 premieres on Oct. 10 on The CW.
