Dean Cain and Helen Slater to play Supergirl’s parents in new show


Some news has come out about CBS’ upcoming Supergirl, the series with a lot of hype surrounding Superman’s cousin. A lot of fans expect big things from the show, seeing that it is being run by Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti.

Casting news last month revealed that Dean Cain and Helen Slater would be part of the show. Dean played Superman in the ’90s series Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman and Helen played Supergirl in the 1984 Supergirl movie. News has just come out that claims that the two former super heroes will actually play Supergirl’s parents in the show.

The two actors are now listed on the official IMDB page for the roles of Fred and Sylvia Danvers, Supergirl’s adoptive human parents. This does fall inline with Greg’s previous casting choices. John Wesley Shipp, who played The Flash in the short run TV series now plays the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen. Seems like there is a good chance that this rumor is authentic.

The Supergirl pilot is currently shooting for a hopeful spot on the CBS Fall schedule. Stay tuned.
