Levi Miller Supergirl

Supergirl Casts 'Peter Pan' as [Spoiler]

After taking a trip to Neverland this October, Pan star Levi Miller will make a beeline for National City.

The young actor — who plays the title role in this fall’s big-screen Peter Pan origin story — has been cast in CBS’ Supergirl as Carter Grant, the son of Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Miller is set to make his Supergirl debut in Episode 4. Per the official character description, 12-year-old Carter is “sensitive and shy” and “couldn’t be more different from his mom.” As Melissa Benoist’s Kara babysits her boss’s son and gets to know him better, “Carter finally opens up to her — revealing his true feelings for Supergirl.”

The gig reunites Miller with Greg Berlanti (an EP on both Supergirl and Pan). “We loved working with him so much on Pan, we were excited to bring him into Supergirl‘s universe,” said Berlanti and his fellow Supergirl producers in a joint statement to TVLine. “He’s an exceptional young actor and a part of the Berlanti Productions family. It will be fun for audiences, who we know will fall in love with him as Peter in Pan on Oct 9, to see his range with his turn as Calista Flockhart’s American son.”

It should be noted that Miller’s character is independent of Adam Morgan, Cat’s son who appeared in the DC Comics.

Supergirl takes flight Monday, Oct. 26, at 8:30/7:30c, before moving into its regular Mondays-at-8 time slot on Nov. 2.

    Watch out for Toyman, little guy…

  2. DL says:

    This sounds so cloyingly cute, I wanna puke…

  3. Dean says:

    Either he’s a fanboy with a crush or he thinks Supergirl can’t be a hero because she’s a girl 12 year old boy phase and all that.

  4. Um… should be Adam Grant (and yes, yet ANOTHER character from the Superman comics).

  5. JDHetherington says:

    The Toyman story that killed Cat’s son Adam, was really controversial, so it may be there way of assuring viewers that it’s not going to happen. Especially because Winslow Schott is an active part of the show already…

    Plus renaming a character isn’t exactly new…

    Eobard Thawne went by Harrison Wells for most of The Flash Season 1…

    Detective Joseph West isnt in the comics, there have been two versions of Iris’ father. One was Ira West, a university professor, the other is William West, an abusive alcoholic…

    Oliver’s sister; Thea Dearden Queen doesn’t exist in the comics, but Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy / Mia Dearden, does…

    Felicity Smoak in the comics, is Ronnie Raymond’s stepmother…

    Laurel Lance’s full name is Dinah Laurel Lance, both in the comics & the Arrow, but in the comics she goes by Dinah…

    Point is don’t dismiss a show, that hasn’t aired yet mind you, for renaming a character.

    Can’t wait to see how Cat Grant’s son is going to played out.

      That’s too fast. Caitlin haven’t even turned villain yet in the Flash.

      • Dean says:

        well arrow turned Slade into a bad guy in about a season and a half and need I remind you it was over his feelings for a girl.

        • tvjunkie says:

          Actually Slade was a villain the entire time in Arrow, because remember he was only ever not a villain in flashbacks so he was always a villain in the present timeline from day 1.
