October 10, 2016: “Supergirl” Season 2 Premieres Tonight!

The Season 2 premiere of “Supergirl” will air at 8.00pm tonight on The CW.

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.”

Would love to see interactions between Superman and Supergirl on the big screen. Which young actress would make a good complement to Henry Cavill?

That was FANTASTIC! Don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll keep it general. As a portrayal of Superman, Tyler and the writers absolutely nailed it. Not whiney, not pensive, not conflicted about why he helps people. His Clark portrayal was also great. The show pulled back on the overbearing “girl power” stuff (which was distracting last season), and instead went for a general “empowerment” message, which I feel is absolutely the right call. Hope shouldn’t be gender-specific. Superman didn’t step on toes and was what I would expect and hoped for: there to help, but not overshadow. Supergirl was calling… Read more »
