Robert Gant Zor-ElThis is huge news. We had some audition dialogue that showed that Zor-El probably would be in the show. Everyone that knows Supegirl lore, having Zor-El on the show could lead to some big things! Zor-El in the new 52 ended up being the cyborg Superman! The only other cyborg Superman there’s been was Hank Henshaw! So BOOM looks like there is a good chance we’ll see a cyberborg-Superman in the future. Well at least the characters are there to make it happen! Also, unless Zor-El is going to be a hologram or some kind of Kryptonian technology, we can assume there will be a scene on Krypton!
