According to a recent casting call from the network, it looks like Superman will make an appearance on the show starring his Kryptonian cousin, Supergirl.
Well at least in the pilot. Kryptonsite has come across the Project Casting website, which mentions that Supergirl is actually looking for a "photo double that is five-foot-eleven or taller" who needs to be "Square Jawed." and he also has to have "a ripped physique."
The casting call also specifies that they want a body double. Which including the info above, makes it sound a lot like Superman.
You can read the entire call below:
"We are looking for BODY DOUBLE for a DC Comic Superhero –
You must be available for an interview this Thursday and if selected will work several day during March. This is for a CBS pilot. You can be SAG or Non-Union. You should be 5’11 or taller and be Square Jawed and have a ripped physique. You must send a bodyshot, shirtless, sizes, current contact info and your first five to [email deleted] – in the subject line write SUPERMAN."
The casting call doesn't reveal how big the Superman role will be, but it seems, that he will just be in the pilot according to reports. And according to the fact that it says that the actor would work for only “several days,”.
Supergirl is set to begin filming this March, with a proposed launch on CBS this fall.
