Is there any chance at Supergirl developing a romance with The Flash? Spoilers for Supergirl Season 2 are silent on this issue and actress Melissa Benoist is even more ambivalent about the possibility.
During the CW Upfront red carpet event, Benoist played coy when was asked about any romance for Kara and Barry Allen. “I don’t know that they’d ever get together; I think they’re too similar. I think they’d like pig out on,” she said per Latin Times. “I think they’re pals, pigging out on ice cream.”
What about James Olsen? The first few episodes do hint about an attraction there, especially on the part of Kara. However, Benoist said that she really has no idea if the producers will ever decide about bringing Kara and James together. Nevertheless, she said that it’s going to be “funny and awkward and great,” just for the fact that Supergirl really has no idea about love and romance.
Meanwhile, showrunner Andrew Kreisberg teased Supergirl Season 2 spoilers to TVLine as he said that Superman might make an appearance although they haven’t decided who will don the cape just yet. “Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape,” the showrunner said.
Smallville actor Tom Welling has already dismissed to Buzzfeed the rumors that he’s going to play Superman in Supergirl Season 2.
While he said that he’s heard about all the reports dragging his name into the new series, nobody from the show has approached him about the casting. As for the appearance of the Man of Steel, Welling said, “I don’t know who he is at that point. He would obviously be Superman.”
Supergirl season 2 has moved over from CBS to CW although the schedule will likely remain on Monday night in the fall. However, there’s no release date yet for the show. There should be plenty of spoilers before then.
