While fans have known for sometime that CBS was planning to bring a “younger” version of Kal-El/Superman in an upcoming episode of Supergirl, However I don’t think anyone was expecting to see him appear this young.
The upcoming February 8 episode of the CBS Supergirl TV series, titled “For The Girl Who Has Everything”, will debut this new adolescent Kal-El in likely what will be an alternative timeline episode for the series.
In this upcoming episode, Kal-El will be played by the young Daniel DiMaggio, who has previously appeared in Tales of Halloween (2015), A Tiger’s Tail (2014) and Divide & Conquer (2014), while the actor doesn’t have much under his belt, its likely that this show will play on the relationship that Kara has vocally wanted with Superman so far this season.
The episodes official synopsis:
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, Monday, Feb. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.
Supergirl’s “For The Girl Who Has Everything” is set to premier on CBS on Febuary 8th.
