Will Superman Appear Passed Supergirl Pilot?


Supergirl executive producer Ali Adler spoke with Entertainment Weekly about how often we can expect to see Superman outside of the pilot episode of the television series.

“Our prototype is the way the president is seen on Veep,” executive producer Ali Adler tells EW, referring to the HBO drama’s clever way of mentioning, but never showing POTUS. “It’s certainly [inspired by] so much of what Julia-Louis Dreyfus’ character goes through. Ultimately, this is a show about Supergirl and we really want to see it through her lens.”

So if you were hoping to see Superman than you may find yourself disappointed. Don’t worry though as anything can happen, as it was said before Arrow came to The CW they would keep it real world, but eventually they decided to introduce super powers into the mix, the same can happen here too.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

  • I’m actually cool with this. Superman need not show up on the show, much in the same way that he rarely shows up in SG’s comic.
