Supergirl: Tyler Hoechlin Is Coming Back as Superman

She'll have her trusted cousin by her side once more

Malcolm Venable

Talk about full circle: Kara's (Melissa Benoist) super famous cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) is coming back to Supergirlfor the Season 2 finale, E! reports.

Following his first appearance in the Season 2 premiere -- when he dropped in to National City to help tinker with a faulty LexCorp spacecraft -- the Man of Steel eventually beat it back to Metropolis, since, you know, the show is called Supergirl after all.

It's unclear as of now what's bringing him back to town, but let's hope that when he does, he and his cousin take a much cooler photo this time -- perhaps one in which he's embraced the hot and grown out his beard.
