One of the constant questions that CBS’ Supergirl have and will be dealing for a long while, is whether or not we will ever see her Kryptonian cousin on the show, the Man of Steel: Superman.

TV Line is reporting that the new DC drama on CBS is currently casting a 13 year old Clark Kent for the show’s 13th episode which will air at some point in 2016.

Catch new episodes of Supergirl on Monday nights, 8/7c on CBS.
