The CW's Supergirl has never shied away from insane DC deep cuts, with no signs of slowing down soon, and that's something that we love about the show. In fact, two of the most exciting Supergirl developments have been the inclusion of former Superman Dean Cain as Jeremiah Danvers, as well as the recent announcement that his former Lois & Clark co-star Teri Hatcher joined the cast as a new villain. With that in mind, could TV's Superman and Lois Lane from the 1990s reunite on this series? According to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, it is entirely possible. Kreisberg explained:
Andrew Kreisberg's comments seem to indicate that we will likely see the iconic Lois Lane and Clark Kent of the 1990s share the screen with one another very soon. Nothing is confirmed just yet, but if it can be done, it will be done. Considering the sheer amount of fan service that Supergirl has managed to pack into its first two seasons on the air, we think a direct reference to Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman seems like a safe bet at this point. After all, this is the sort of thing that the Arrow-verse does better than anybody else.
It is not terribly surprising to learn that the folks behind Supergirl have an interest in getting Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher back together on the small screen, which was revealed at a recent press event (via CBR). Pretty much all of The CW's Arrow-verse shows have genuinely embraced a certain degree of self-aware campiness, and that has resulted in plenty of fantastically meta moments over the course of the last few years that fans have really responded well to. If John Wesley Shipp and Mark Hamill can reunite on The Flash, then there's no reason why we cannot see a Lois & Clark reunion take place on Supergirl. Anything for the fans, right?
In all honesty, the inclusion of Teri Hatcher on Supergirl feels like something that was telegraphed as far back as the pilot episode of the series. Dean Cain has remained involved in the project and made sporadic appearances as Jeremiah Danvers since the very beginning of the show's existence, so it was really only a matter of time until The CW tapped Ms. Hatcher to do the same. Needless to say, we're beyond excited to see what this former Lois Lane can do in this new role, which we'd love to get some new information on at some point.
