Supergirl Teaser Gives Us First Look at the Super Cousins in Action
So, you all know that I was super excited about this casting news when it first broke, and then the first images from set started popping up on the internet and that just made me even more excited. Now we have our first trailer for season 2 of Supergirl featuring both Kara and her famous cousin in action.
Take a look at the teaser for the season 2 premiere of Supergirl, “The Last Child of Krypton”, which airs October 10th:

Now, some people are concerned with all the hype about Superman’s casting, because they do seem to be heavily promoting it, but I don’t think you guys should worry. He’s only confirmed to be in two episodes right now (with the possibility of more, yes), and as executive producer Sarah Schechter made sure to emphasize at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the focus is still very much on Kara. Not to mention that he isn’t the only new face in National City next season. And it’s a bit unrealistic to expect that he would never show up to help out his cousin. Honestly, I think a lot of the promotion has to do with the change in networks, to really drive the point home that to catch Supergirl, you now have to tune in to the CW.
People have valid reasons to worry that Superman’s presence will overshadow Supergirl on her own show, but I feel that this teaser does a very good job of balancing the two characters. There’s no more emphasis on Superman than there is on Supergirl, and they both feature pretty prominently. (Plus, on a more shallow note, I’m so, so happy that the new promotional photos for the premiere make Tyler look way better than he did in the first promotional image that we got.)
Anyway, this just makes my excitement level go to eleven, because now there is a teaser, which means that the season premiere isn’t that far away, and really, can it just be October already?
