Superman is returning to National City! I repeat, Superman is returning to National City.

After winning critics and fans alike for his portrayal of Clark Kent/the Man of Steel in the opening two episodes of Season 2 (he totally killed it in the role), Tyler Hoechlin will be putting on the red cape again for Supergirl. According to E!Online, Hoechlin has been confirmed to return for the Season 2 finale, slated to air on May 22.

Although plot details are currently being kept under wraps, wanna bet the Last Son of Krypton will be called upon to help his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO against Queen Rhea (Teri Hatcher) and Lilian Luthor (Brenda Strong) and Project Cadmus? There have been rumors floating around of an alliance between the two villains, but whether that turns out to be true remains to be seen.

Supergirl is currently on hiatus, with the next episode titled “Ace Reporter” set to air on April 24. The episode will guest-star iZombie’s Rahul Kohli as Jack Spheer, who's also known as DC villain Biomax. Here’s the synopsis:

Lena’s (guest star Katie McGarth) ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer (guest star Rahul Kohli), comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper (guest Star Ian Gomez) in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger.

Are you excited about Tyler Hoechlin suiting up again for the Season 2 finale? Supergirl airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on The CW.
