This isn’t the first time an ex-Superman has appeared on "Smallville." The late Christopher Reeve guested on the show during its second and third seasons, playing Dr. Virgil Swan
Also former Supergirl star Helen Slater has signed on to appear . Slater will play the aunt of the show’s recently cast Supergirl (Laura Vandervoort).
Slater will appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming season, two weeks after ex-Superman Dean Cain is scheduled to appear.
