Shortly after learning that Supergirl’s cousin Kal-El and his superhero alter ego would join the show, the producers have revealed our new Superman….and thank sweet baby Jesus….it’s NOT Tom Welling! ““Teen Wolf” alum Tyler Hoechlin has been cast as Superman/Clark Kent in Season 2 of the Greg Berlanti-produced drama, which is making the jump from CBS to The CW for its sophomore outing.” In addition to Teen Wolf, he’s been in Road to Perdition, and Hall Pass. More recently, the 28 year old starred in the film Everybody Wants Some. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg had these comments about the casting; “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.” I’ve never seen “Teen Wolf” or any of Tyler Hoechlin’s work. He’s got a great look and resemblance to the character. The bottom line is that I trust the casting agents and producers, as they have cast Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and of course, Supergirl. They haven’t let me down yet, and I don’t suspect they will with this choice. I’m excited. The next big reveal will be seeing the TV series’ iteration, of the costume and seeing the actor as Clark Kent and Superman!
