Superman

The CW has announced today that it has cast Teen Wolf star, Tyler Hoechlin, as its next on-screen Clark Kent/Superman. Tyler will appear in two episodes of Supergirl starting next season and will be joining returning cast members Melissa Benoist (Kara/Supergirl), Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen), and Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers). There are still talks between The CW and Calista Flockhart on returning to the series as Cat Grant.

In making the announcement today Supergirl’s executive producer had this to say “Greg 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.”

Tyler will be the first on-screen Superman since Tom Welling played the role during Smallville’s run. Currently Henry Cavill is the leading man in the DC Films universe. There are no further details regarding the role and whether or not the role will go beyond the initial two appearances.

How do you feel about the casting decision? Outside of Teen Wolf, the actors list of roles are few but he did star alongside Tom Hanks in Road to Perdition at age nine. I for one, really wanted Welling to reprise the role but I would like to see how Tyler handles such an iconic character. He joins the list with the likes of Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Brandon Routh, and Henry Cavill.

We will have more details as they are given and as always stay tuned to MFST for all your latest DC/Marvel news.
