    So, Tyler Hocechlin will be returning as Superman for Crisis on Infinite Earths. But he isn't the only Superman Returning- Brandon Routh will ALSO suit up as Superman and Clark Kent for the crossover!


    In other news, Jeremy Jordan will be coming back for three episodes after the crossover, presumably to wrap up his character. And Mechad Brooks will be leaving the show to focus on his movie career, something that ALWAYS works out well for the actor who does it.


    Honestly ambivalent about that. It feels like they never really knew what to do with his character after they decided not to have him be the love interest for Kara. Even Guardian felt like a bone they were throwing him. But if he's leaving, does that mean he can take his sister, too? Please?

    With Jimmy gone and Calista not wanting to work in Canada, I wonder if they'll put Kara in charge of Catco. Or if Lena will hire someone antagonistic towards Kara to take over instead.

    Did Jimmy even have any scenes with Kara/Supergirl this season? When he was in the hospital there always seemed to be some in-story reason why Kara couldn't be there.

    The season 1 angle wasn't a misstep in my opinion, they just got cold feet following it through and then didn't know what to do with Jimmy afterwards. The Lena relationship was nice but ultimately became secondary to everything else going on.

    ...can't really say what I want to say, so I'll just say I wish him the best and I'll always be in his corner rooting for him.

    I wish Brooks the best.

    He's a good actor who got stuck in a role he didn't really fit in, which the writers always seemed to struggle with figuring out what to do with post-season 1, and sometimes had to fight to get any screentime at all. But he still delivered as much as he was able to in that kind of situation.

    (I still maintain to this day that he should've been John Henry Irons).

    There were a few. Such as when Kara told him it was Eve that shot him, not Manchester Black. After she got free from the monument she and James talked about Manchester black. And when Kara took down the President
    after exposing he was Lex Luthor's stooge. Little scenes like that where Kara was chatting with James in his office.

    It did seem like the only purpose of James was to be Kara's love interest but after that fell through he served no real purpose. But I guess he had a contract to be a series regular and they had to find something for him to do.
    Being head of Catco wasn't doing it because he was no Cat Grant. Being Guardian just amounted to too many heroes, what with Mon-El also there, and just took away screen time from Supergirl. Being Lena's lover just felt
    forced, could see no chemistry between the two, just actors reciting their lines. Basically James was around for 3 seasons too long. They should have found a way to let him gracefully exit after Kara dumped him. Moved him
    over to Legends of Tomorrow or something if they were contractually obligated to keep him employed.

    Yeah, the sudden shift in season 2 really felt off for the character going forward. Wouldn't have minded if he joined the LoT, as they don't have anyone from Supergirl there (yet, anyway).

    I really thought they did him better in Season 4, so its sad to see him go now.

    Just saw the comic con trailer. I’ll try to keep it vague, since I don’t know how to do spoiler tags. The Kara/Lena stuff looks like it’ll Be good. That being said, the overall arc for the season sounds like the producers are preaching to me again. That’s a big reason why I have a hard time getting into this show.

    I agree, but it will depend on how the preaching plays into the overall plot. If it's Leviathan using Lena's tech, it could be interesting.

    They really did Brooks dirty this season with him not being able to use his super powers to the childhood trauma horror. I guess getting Nick Furied at the end was the final humiliation. Don't blame him for leaving wish him the best.

    Wonder how far they'll take the whole Lena thing.

    That trailer is ridiculous.

    It's halfway to being one of those tonally inconsistent ones people make as a joke.

    Not that interesting. If Kara can't dodge a human speed haymaker, she needs some boxing lessons. Of course, you could argue it was superspeed but slowed for the show. Looks like she gets her butt kicked all the time following past precedent.
