Supergirl creators announce Superman for Season 2! But who will be cast?

It’s been a few days now since executive producer Andrew Kreisberg dropped the news that Superman will indeed be making an appearance in Season 2 of the CW’s new pick up Supergirl, and as it does the internet has gone nuts with fans clamouring to tell the world who they think would be the ideal pick for the Man of Steel .

There has already been an incredible amount of support (including from us here at Comic Confidential) for previous “Superman” Tom Welling to be cast; with fans saying it’s a much deserved chance for Welling to don the red and blue outfit of the son of Krypton which he was all but denied on the CW’s previous hit Smallville. Welling himself seems to be free enough with CBS cancelling his upcoming project “Section 13” while still at the pilot stage.

Other actors popping up as fan favourites such as Matt Bomer (White Collar), Alan Ritchson (Blue Mountain State) and Brett Dalton (Agents of Shield)  all have the look and acting chops necessary, but just who gets to fill the red boots of Supes on the small screen only time can tell. The smart money would be on Tom Welling, and given that Greg Berlanti seems to enjoy casting choices that nod to the fans of the genre (think John Wesley-Shipp as Jay Garrick), hopefully it won’t be long before we see Welling suited up and taking to the skies of National City with his cousin Kara…
