SUPERGIRL: Daniel DiMaggio To Appear As Superman [CBS]

Daniel DiMaggio

Daniel DiMaggio has been cast in Supergirl. The Tales of Halloween and A Tiger’s Tale star will portray a young version of Superman in the DC-based CBS television series.

DiMaggio is slated to make his debut on Supergirl on February 8th in an episode entitled “For The Girl Who Has Everything”. Given the youth of the character, DiMaggio’s incarnation of the character will be referred to by his Kryptonian birth name of Kal-El rather than his Earth alias of Superman. The Man of Steel’s appearance in the episode will mark the first time the character has made an appearance in Supergirl.

In addition, Superman will reportedly be introduced through a series of flashbacks that the show’s protagonist Kara experiences. It is through these flashbacks that the program will “establish the cherished bond between him and Kara”. This opens the possibility that Superman will eventually join the show as a major or recurring character, although given that he will only be seen in flashbacks it remains unclear how this would be accomplished.

Comic Book Movie provides the following synopsis of the upcoming episode:

For The Girl Who Has Everything” – Kara’s friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed. Also, Alex, Hank and the DEO must fend off a Kryptonian attack while Kara is out of commission, on SUPERGIRL,…

From the sound of it, “For The Girl Who Has Everything” is sure to spark chatter that Superman will be appearing as a lot more than just a figment of Kara’s imagination in Supergirl.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
