Superman and Supergirl team up in the first clip from the season premiere
If you weren’t already excited for the premiere of Supergirl Season 2, you probably will be now. A new promo video has hit the internet, featuring two full minutes of footage from the premiere.
Episode 2×01 is titled ‘The Adventures of Supergirl,’ and as you likely know by now, it features a guest appearance from Tyler Hoechlin as the Man of Steel. Judging from this two-minute clip, though, you’d be forgiven for thinking the episode was called ‘The Adventures of Superman.’
The Man of Steel is definitely the focus here, as he has been for most of the promotional footage. We first see him as Clark Kent at a newsstand in Metropolis. After a comical phone conversation with Daily Planet editor Perry White (“Great Caesar’s ghost!”), Clark quickly sheds his clothes and takes to the sky.
Some sort of space shuttle or plane is in trouble and the news media is praying for the Man of Steel to show up. As James Olsen points out, though, there is more than one superhero on Earth now. Kara then takes flight herself.
Supergirl arrives at the plane first and uses her strength to try and lift the nose of the craft. Soon after, Superman arrives (“Hey, cuz!”) and the two of them join forces. Superman extinguishes the flames coming from the engine and pushes on the plane’s rear to help Kara counterbalance the falling craft.
It’s definitely an exciting two minutes of television and could very well be the first two minutes of the episode. It certainly feels like an introduction of sorts.
We’ll find out when Supergirl returns on Monday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
