We have a new Superman! After teasing us with his presence all of season one in Supergirl, we now have a new Man of Steel. Tyler Hoechlin has been cast in the role of Superman/Clark Kent.
It’s a great choice and we actually picked him in our Monday Draft a few months ago as a possible candidate to play Jason Todd/ Red Hood.
Superman will be introduced visiting his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) in National City at the beginning of Season 2, appearing in the first two new episodes.
Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement, “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.”
Season 2 of Supergirl will air Mondays this fall at 8/7c on The CW.
What do you think of this casting?
