So, why is Superman swooping into National City in the Supergirl season two premiere, “The Adventures Of Supergirl”? Maybe the newly-released synopsis from the CW will shed a little light on the matter.
THE CW HAS A NEW HERO AND SHE’S BRINGING SUPERMAN WITH HER — When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out.
Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.
Glen Winter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Jessica Queller.
Odd… we assumed that Supes was coming to town because of the crashed Kryptonite pod, but this would seem to suggest the two are unrelated. Unless it’s just marketing smoke and mirrors. Or really vaguely worded.
Supergirl season two premieres in the UK on Sky1 on 24 October.
