This week it’s been released that Superman/Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) will be returning for the season two finale of Supergirl. While it is still unknown what will draw them back to National City, fans have gotten extremely excited by the news. Hoechlin will appear in the May 22nd finale, while Flockhart will return in the last two episodes of the season.
The last we saw Superman and Cat Grant were in the first two episodes of season two. Cat Grant bid farewell as she wanted to move on from CatCo and gave the company to James Olsen. Due to the network change and scheduling issues, Calista Flockhart had to leave the show, but it was always rumored she would return as a guest star.
In those episodes, Superman helped Kara and Lena with a defunct LexCorp spaceship. Shortly after he had to return to Metropolis, living National City in Kara’s capable hands. The premiere opened on a new network, which meant there were some noticeable changes right away, but Hoechlin’s Superman fit right in. While he was with the DEO, Kara remained a strong lead and was not overshadowed by her more famous cousin. At the same time, I liked how important they made Superman to everyone because well, he is Superman. I just wish we would have heard more of him throughout the season. I understand that there has been a lot going on, with several storylines, but it seems like a whole other season since Superman appeared. I know that it’s Supergirl’s show, but it would have been nice to hear her allude to Clark, like she randomly did in the first season. Tyler Hoechlin had attended San Diego Comic Con with the cast last summer, which made me think he would have a bigger role. I’m surprised Chris Wood did not make an appearance, seeing how he is a series regular and has a major storyline this season.
Can’t wait to hear more information in the coming weeks.
