Supergirl is set to return for its second season premiere this year, this time on the CW instead of CBS, and in addition to bringing back the same crew of players from the first (for the most part), the season is also finally going to introduce Kara’s Kryptonian cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (played by Tyler Hoechlin). Right now, the size and impact of his role in the new season is currently unknown, but it looks like he’s already going to be a much different version than Henry Cavill’s DCEU interpretation, much to the delight of some fans I imagine.
Following several photos of both Hoechlin and Melissa Benoist on set yesterday, seemingly in the fictional city of Metropolis as well, a new set video overlooking the second season production has arrived online and it gives us our very first look at this version of Superman in action, seriously fighting what looks like it could very well be the show’s version of Metallo, the iconic Man of Steel villain.
Check out the video below (H/T Comicbook.com):

Even though the video is only about 20 seconds long, the fight between the two characters looks pretty brutal, and considering the fight scenes were always one of Supergirl‘s biggest weaknesses, it’s nice to see a battle not only be as quick and hand-to-hand as this, but also look as cool and intense as it does. Not to mention how surprisingly well the Superman costume seems to be moving around also, unlike a majority of the previous incarnations of the costume.
If this is the kind of high-intensity action that we can expect to see with Superman’s introduction in the new season, then I think Supergirl transitioning over to the CW may not be the only possible improvement that fans can look forward to later this year. As someone who dipped in and out of the first season as well, I’m legitimately surprised by how excited I am to see the show return, though with this video and the recent set photos, it looks like that excitement may not be misplaced.
Supergirl season 2 will premiere on the CW on October 10th.
