Superman joins the team in first trailer for Season 2 of The CW's Supergirl

The first trailer for the new season of Supergirl has finally arrived, and we have our first look at Kara’s superpowered cousin in action.

The new trailer focuses on Supergirl as she flies around town trying to avert a few catastrophes, and we also see her joined in the clouds by Tyler Hoechlin’s version of Superman. After keeping Supes on the fringes for most of Season 1, they’ll finally take the plunge and introduce the Man of Steel in the season premiere. Exactly how they’ll pull that off without having him still the Maiden of MIght’s thunder has yet to be seen. But, regardless — we’re getting a version of Superman who isn’t GRIMDARK, so call it a win.

For what it’s worth, Hoechlin certainly looks the apart, and despite the jump from CBS to The CW, the effects work looks on par with what’s come before (at least in the snippets here). Along with Superman, the trailer also features the return of fan favorite Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), who will seemingly have her role reduced as part of the production’s jump from California to Canada. That’ll be another big change, because it may have Supergirl on the title, but this has always been Cat’s show. 

Season 2 of Supergirl premieres Oct. 10.
