Cyborg Superman is coming to CW's Supergirl. The character is named in the official description to November 21's episode, "The Darkest Place."
"IT’S SUPERGIRL VS. CYBORG SUPERMAN — While Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) tries to clear his name after being accused of a murder committed by another vigilante, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) heads out on a solo mission to rescue Mon-El (Chris Wood) who has been captured by CADMUS," reads the description. "While fighting to free Mon-El, Supergirl comes face to face with Cyborg Superman. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Robert Rovner & Paula Yoo (#207)."
No actor has been announced to play Cyborg Superman.
Supergirl co-star David Harewood has played Hank Henshaw since the series debut, later revealing however that he is actually J'onn J'onzz masquerading as Henshaw.
In post-Crisis comic book continuity, NASA astronaut Hank Henshaw became Cyborg Superman. However in "New 52" continuity, Supergirl's father Zor-El adopted the moniker.
"The Darkest Place" episode of Supergirl is scheduled to air November 21 on the CW.
