Superman Arrives in New Supergirl Season 2 Photos
There is plenty to look forward to in the next season of Supergirl, not the least of which is the crossover between all four DCTV shows on The CW (plus musical Flash crossovers!). But one of the buzziest aspects of season two is the arrival of Superman, played by Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin.

Hoechlin will only appear in the first two episodes of the season (so far, at least), but he's in seven of the nine promo stills released today. One could argue that it's problematic for Supergirl to be relying so heavily on Superman for its marketing, but we have to admit that it's exciting to see the two heroes together.

Plus, we get our first look at Hoechlin as Clark Kent, and he seems to pull off both personas pretty well so far:

And finally, the stills introduce Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, who may serve as a de facto Cat Grant replacement, now that Calista Flockhart has become a recurring rather than a regular cast member after the move to Vancouver. But don't worry, we'll still be getting our fix of Cat Grant one-liners, if not every week:
