According to TV Guide's "TV Insider:"

Proving once again that she can pull off the impossible, Supergirl has landed the Guest Star of Steel: Superman! Speaking on behalf of fellow executive producers Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg says in a statement just released by Kara Zor-El's new home planet, The CW, that "Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl. 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!"

Commentary: I am glad to hear there.  I think Supergirl stands well enough on her own, but the whole Superman as Norm's wife, Vera, felt a little awkward at time.  I wonder who they will get for Superman.  The show seems to have affection for casting people like Dean Cain and Helen Slater.  So that makes me hope that we can get Tom Welling.  Or maybe give Brandon Routh another shot. I know he plays Atom in this shared DC Universe, but he deserves a more fair shot at playing Superman.  Superman Returns was awful, but he has shown that he could have done well with the role.

Well, whoever it is, I am very glad that Supergirl is getting a second season!
