In what may be regarded as old news to some (but nonetheless exciting to us here at TG2 Studios), is the announcement as to who will be cast to play Superman in the formerly CBS, now CW series, Supergirl, and that actor is Tyler Hoechlin.
The actor will be making a two-episode appearance at the start of season 2. Hoechlin is no stranger to the sci-fi/fantasy/horror genre having made an impression on the MTV series Teen Wolf. Since then he has appeared in the starring role of Everybody Wants Some!, as well as Road to Perdition, Hall Pass, and Solstice.
Supergirl Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg had this to say:
“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”
While we will finally get a chance to see Supergirl’s cousin, his presence has been strongly felt during the show’s freshman season, either partially obscured or through the occasional text messaging with Kara Danvers.
Does Tyler Hoechlin seem like a good choice to place the Man Of Steel? How often do you feel he should be a part of the show? If you could, whom would you cast to play the part of Superman?
