According to TVLine.com, Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin will play Superman on Supergirl. Supergirl was just moved to The CW from CBS and will air on Mondays.
We previously reported about the fan movement to cast Matt Cohen as Superman, with a few fans also voicing their opinions about getting Smallville actor Tom Welling to reprise his role.
TVLine reports that Andrew Kreisberg had this to say about Tyler:
“[Executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman.”
It will be interesting to see what Tyler does with the role.
