Are These Helen Slater & Dean Cain's Roles In SUPERGIRL?

Let's file this as a rumor for now, but we may have just learned the identities of the mystery Supergirl roles Helen Slater & Dean Cain landed late last month.


Late last month, we learned that CBS' Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist as the titular heroine, had cast Helen Slater (Supergirl) and Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman) in mystery roles. Well, thanks to KryptonSite's keen eye, we may have learned who the duo may be playing.

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has the pair listed as playing Fred & Sylvia Danvers, Kara's foster parents.

It'd probably be wise to take this bit of news with a grain of salt for now as IMDb is not always the most reliable source, but it wouldn't be surprising for the show to take this route especially after CW's The Flash, another Greg Berlanti-run show, cast former Flash, John Wesley Shipp, as Barry Allen's father Henry. We likely won't get official word for a while, but if proven true, it's likely we'll see the pair in a recurring capacity, similar to Shipp on The Flash.

Both actors previously guest-starred on CW's long-running Smallville, which starred Tom Welling as Clark Kent/Superman and Erica Durance as his lady love Lois Lane. Slater played Lara-El, Clark's birth mother, and Cain played the villainous Dr. Curtis Knox.

What do you guys think? Like their casting? Would you like to see other Superman alums return? How sweet would it be if we saw Tom Welling cameo as Kara's famous cousin? Sound off with your thoughts below!

 

 

The hourlong drama centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl

Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El
