To say that The CW’s Supergirl is one of our favorite shows around these parts is kind of an understatement. The show has given us some of the best onscreen versions of some characters, and not just our headlining heroine. One of those is Calista Flockhart’s version of Cat Grant, who left the series as a regular after its move to The CW from CBS (pretty much because budget cuts meant they couldn’t afford to pay her), and another is Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman — who guest starred earlier this season.
Well guess what, they’re both coming back for the finale.
Its been confirmed that Tyler Hoechlin will suit up again as Superman in the show’s two part second season finale. It’s also being reported that Calista Flockhart will return as Cat Grant as well. This is exciting, as we’re always happy to see more of Hoechlin’s Superman, and Cat Grant has been sorely missed on the show lately.
The first part of the Supergirl season two finale will air May 15th, with part two following on May 22nd.
On this episode we mourn the loss of Leonard Nimoy, check out that Walking Dead town that’s for sale, discuss the Power Rangers fan film of the moment, ponder Wonder Woman’s production schedule, and discuss the latest news about CBS’s Supergirl.
Nick also went to PlattCon, and had a good time.
We’re sorry for the audio quality this episode (with the clickings and poppings). There was a software glitch which we didn’t have time to fix.
We know a lot about the cast for forthcoming CBS Supergirl TV series. We’ve known who is playing Supergirl, we’ve known who’s playing Jimmy Olsen — but we still didn’t know who was playing Cat Grant.
Well, now we do. THR is reporting that Calista Flockhart has been cast in the role. Flockhart is, of course, best known as the star of the 90s phenomenon Ally McBeal. Cat Grant, in her Supergirl incarnation, will be a “media magnate” and our heroine will be working as her assistant.
I presume trying to have it all.
Jokes aside, this is pretty solid casting all around, so I’m optimistic about the show. Here’s hoping CBS doesn’t muck it up.
