'Superman' Is Finally Being Cast For SUPERGIRL - But With One Twist!

'Superman' Is Finally Being Cast For SUPERGIRL - But With One Twist!

Though Kara's slightly more famous cousin has had a presence on Supergirl already, the CBS show is now casting an actor to play the Man of Steel for a 2016 debut.


Superman has been depicted on Supergirl already, but only via a few blurry, shot- from-behind glimpses. Now, TV Line reports that an actual actor will be cast to portray the Man of Steel on the show... a 13-year-old actor, that is.

Yes, our first proper introduction to Kal El on Supergirl will be through flashback, as a bond is established between a teenage Supes and his cousin, Kara (Melissa Benoist). Apparently they're looking for a 13-year-old actor with “future leading man looks” to play the potentially recurring role. The character will be introduced in episode 13 of the show.

What do you guys think about this? A smart way to go about it, or should they have just gone with the older version? Sound off below.
