That’s it for everyone who thought Supergirl wouldn’t introduce us to his iconic cousin Clark Kent. According to TVLine, the show is oficially looking for a young actor with “future leading man looks” to play Superman. The superhero – that made a blurry appearance in the 3rd episode this season – will finally show his face!

With so many escalations in the cast of "Supergirl", it seems that the team is looking for a child actor willing to face one of the biggest roles in the series. Quoted on several occasions in history, Kal-El will be seen already this season, but in a younger version! Rocked! Who will be the major chosen?


The original idea is for the actor to appear to be in his early teenage years – around 13 years old – in order to play what can *potentially* be a recurring character later this season. He will make his debut in the 13th episode of season one – set to air on early 2016 –, through flashbacks and this way we’re going to see how his relationship with the Supergirl first started. Knowing Kara is younger than Kent – but we don’t know exactly how much younger – and the plotline, it’s also safe to say they’re goingo to cast a younger Supergirl itself.

So, what did you think of the news? What actor do you think is perfect for playing the young Kal-El? Leave your opinion here in the comments.

Fixed Character on Cast?

However if it’s a recurring role or just an one time appearance, for sure Superman is not taking the entire plot of Kara’s show. "There really isn't anything we've asked for that was not given to us, you know? The show's called Supergirl and it's about Supergirl. It's not like we've been jonesing to have Superman on it”, said exec producer Andrew Kreisberg to, "for us, Superman is more of an idea than it is a personification of the character, so we're more than happy to have him backlit.
