EXCLUSIVE: ‘Supergirl’ Melissa Benoist Talks Superman’s ‘Dream’ Debut and How the Danvers Sisters Will Grow Stronger in Season 2!

Tonight, the action-packed drama makes its highly anticipated move from CBS to join Greg Berlanti‘s DC Comics superhero lineup on The CW. We’ve already seen tonight’s high-flying premiere (subtle brag totally intended!) and trust us when we tell you that the sophomore season of Supergirl is off to a sensational start — especially with the addition of Tyler Hoechlin as Superman.

To get you even more pumped for all the alien adventures ahead, ET caught up with the Girl of Steel herself, Melissa Benoist, on Supergirl‘s new Vancouver-based set to get the exclusive scoop on Superman’s debut, the epic four-part superhero crossover and how the Danvers sisters will become closer than ever!

In tonight’s premiere, fans will finally have the pleasure of meeting Kara’s Kryptonian cousin, Kal-El — aka Clark Kent — and Benoist reveals that working alongside Hoechlin was “a dream.”

“He is so fun and he’s so easy to work with. Tyler kind of is Superman. He’s just inherently good inside and out and we have the best time,” she says. “We would have these moments where he would trip over something and I’d stumble my words, and he would look at me and be like, ‘People should just be rolling on us right now because we are so ridiculous!’ Like we are Clark and Kara.”

With the new network change, Benoist adds that there’s an “exciting feeling” in the air now that the opportunity for more crossovers is possible. “It’s kind of like we’ve expanded even more into the comic book world then we were last season,” she shares. “It just feels like everyone has got a shot of energy, like we got this pump of adrenaline into the show.”

Later this year, Supergirl will kick off the unprecedented four-part crossover event with Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. “It’s going to be really exciting and fun, but it’s a little daunting. I don’t know how I am going to feel being in a room with all those other superheroes,” Benoist admits.
