There’s added excitement for Superman fans, as Superman will make his first proper appearance on the show in tonight’s Season 2 premiere.
Superman has always been a part of the show’s DNA, yet he was only glimpsed indirectly during Supergirl‘s first season. He had a name and a presence, but lacked a face. That changes tonight, much to the relief of the show’s star.
“We did reference [Superman] quite a bit, but there wasn’t anything personal really to latch onto,” says Melissa Benoist about now having a Man of Steel. “I had to be a little bit more in my imagination about it. But now, I think of Tyler every time we reference him. He did such a wonderful job of bringing the character to life.
“It’s really nice to have that kind of gauge now – ‘Oh yeah, this IS my cousin.’ It feels closer, like their relationship is a little more solidified. When I play her, I get to feel that now.”
