Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles.

CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series boasts a number of DC figures among its primary cast, and while Kara Zor-El and Jimmy Olsen have already been found, two new figures from DC lore have joined the party.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooks's Olsen will be joining the ranks of other established comic book characters like the Toyman and -- no kidding -- Cyborg Superman in the cast, and will be featured on the increasingly bizarre-sounding show as a photographer at CatCo, a media company in National City founded by Cat Grant, where Supergirl works in her civilian identity, when she's not involved in what has been described as a crime procedural. Also included in the announcement, though, was the idea that Kara will have a crush on him, hinting at a relationship between the two characters.
