October 10, 2016: Andrew Kreisberg Talks About Superman in Season 2 of “Supergirl”

160829-Season2TVline.com has now published their full interview with “Supergirl” executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Ali Adler, in which they talk about Season 2, the new characters we’ll meet, and how and why Superman will join forces with his cousin Kara to take on Project Cadmus.

TVLINE | What’s going to thrust us into action this season?

KREISBERG | There’s a chain of events that forces Superman and Supergirl to team up, and them getting to spend some time in each other’s lives, which they haven’t previously gotten to do. That’s sort of the engine that starts the season. And Project Cadmus, this evil organization dedicated to eradicating alien life on Earth, their two biggest targets are Superman and Supergirl.

TVLINE | Did you feel like addressing the Superman in the room was something you needed to do in Season 2?

KREISBERG | That is actually part of the story of the first two episodes: “Why are you in one city and I’m in another?” Part of the emotional story is they kind of want to be together, because they both have that sense of longing, missing that that sense of home and family that they both lost. But the world won’t let them be together.

TVLINE | Is Superman brought in to teach Kara a specific lesson?

ADLER | Actually, I think you’ll be surprised to find it’s the opposite. Kara definitely teaches him, as well. This Supergirl – it’s her show, it’s her point of view – and we waited until she literally saved the earth to bring him on. Yes, he has more experience as Superman, but they both have a lot to teach each other.

I think it’d be great if there was a scene where Clark just simply asks Kara “What was Krypton like or what was my family like?” because really the knowledge he has of it is akin to reading about something in a history books or seeing photo albums wheras she has very clear memories and experiences.
