UPDATE: Daniel DiMaggio Will Play A Young 'Superman' On SUPERGIRL
Well, young Kal-El is more accurate, as this lad is many, many years away from caping up as the Man of Steel. We've known for a while that a younger version of Supes was going to be introduced on Supergirl, and it's now been revealed that A Tiger's Tale actor Daniel DiMaggio will be playing him...
The February 8 episode of the CBS Supergirl TV series is titled “For The Girl Who Has Everything”, and Kryptonsite has confirmed that this is when we'll first meet the adolescent Kal-El, who will of course one day become Superman.
He'll be played by Daniel DiMaggio, who has previously appeared in Tales of Halloween (2015), A Tiger's Tail (2014) and Divide & Conquer (2014). Unfortunately there aren't many pictures of the youngster online, but that's him on the left of the pic above.
We still don't know exactly how this take on the iconic character will debut on Supergirl, but some more details should be available over the next couple of weeks. All we have to go on for now is that Lil’ Supes will be introduced via a string of flashbacks that will "establish the cherished bond between him and Kara".
UPDATE: The official synopsis for the ep gives us a lot more to go on.
