It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Tyler Hoechlin! The Teen Wolf veteran will play Clark Kent/Superman in the second season of Supergirl when it moves to The CW this fall, E! News has learned.
"Greg and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman," Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. "We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character."
Last season, when Supergirl was on CBS, Superman was not seen, just mentioned and chatted with his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) online. This year he'll recur.
Hoechlin, 28, recently appeared in Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some and will soon appear in Stratton. His other credits include Road to Perdition, Hall Pass and 7th Heaven.
