Watch Superman finally make an appearance in this new Supergirl clip

The alien cousins are assembling for season two of the superhero show


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Tyler Hoechlin. Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, we’ll give you that, but still, he’s just chatting on the phone in the first half of this Supergirl season two clip.


However, the second half. Yup, it’s a goodun: Kara Danvers/Supergirl teams up with Clark Kent/Superman for some good old-fashion-saving-a-plane-falling from the sky action.

You’re going to be seeing a lot more of Hoechlin – the Teen Wolf TV star – in the second season of Supergirl, as the title character (played by Melissa Benoist) is joined by her cousin, Superman.

Haven’t watched the show? Well, you can probably guess that it’s a much lighter take on the superhero than the current Henry Cavill version of Kal-El in the DC films. For more of an idea, check out this trailer for the upcoming season:
