October 12, 2016: Behind-the-Scenes “Supergirl” Season 2 Reveals

160829-Season2Executive producer Ali Adler sat down with Empire Online to talk about Season 2 of “Supergirl” and the thinking behind what will be taking place.

Why Superman is appearing in the first two episodes

“It’s sort of weird if we don’t tell the story of her famous cousin. It’s like if your brother was a rock star, we’d have to tell that story if we were doing the story of your life. So it’s important to tell that story and it seemed like a natural time to tell it. At its core, Supergirl’s not only a show about girl power, but about a powerful girl. She really is the essence and the core of the show, but we’re thrilled that Tyler Hoechlin came and we’re so honored that we were granted amazing access to this tremendous, iconic character in Superman.”

Superman villain Metallo makes his presence known

“Metallo is such an iconic character in the DC Universe, and we’re so impressed with how it’s been handled, even in terms of the costume itself. Kiersten Ronning, who is the costume designer, is just so tremendous with her designs. All these phases that we’re seeing in our villains at the top of the season are just people and villains from the gallery of rogues. These are people that we’ve really looked forward to meeting since our childhoods, and now we get to humanize them. Someone like Metallo definitely fits into that category.”
