We had Tom Welling and Brandon Routh at the same time, and that sort of worked out.
Now another Man of Steel may be joining Henry Cavill.
According to a casting call for the CBS Supergirl TV series, the show is looking for someone who is described as: "5-foot-11 or taller," "square-jawed" and has "a ripped physique."
It's noted the part is for a " DC Comic Superhero" and those interested must write "SUPERMAN" in the subject line (via Project Casting).
The Supergirl synopsis also made mention of Superman:
Based on the DC Comics character, the drama tells the story of Kara Zor-El, who was born on the planet Krypton, but escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin Superman. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
The Supergirl series is set to star Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.
