Superman Teams Up With Supergirl For The First Time

CW's newest addition, Supergirl, was the talk of the town this summer, as they announced that the new season would welcome Superman into the fold.

The addition of Clark Kent to Supergirl season two marks the first time the Man of Steel has appeared on the small-screen since the series finale of Smallville.

The show cast Tyler Hoechlin as Kent, and fans were ecstatic with the news. Over the course of production, Hoechlin further proved that he was perfect for the role.

This new clip is no different.

In preparation for the season premiere, CW released a clip of Superman and Supergirl in action, together, for the first time.

The clip begins as Clark Kent is talking at a news stand. After hearing the news of a plane going down, he decides to spring into action. Running down an empty alley, Clark rips of his shirt to reveal his super-suit.

Once Superman bursts into the sky, we get a climpse of Supergirl, already in costume, going after him.

Supergirl arrives to the plane first, and begins to hold it up by the nose. She's struggling, as the momentum is too much for her to handle. As if on cue, Superman shows up to offer some assistance.


This is a great shot of the two cousins teaming up, and the style is reminiscent of the Superman tales of old. Even the music seems to have come straight from Christopher Reeves' glory days.

Supergirl season two premieres on Monday, October 10 at 8pm ET on CW.
