“Greg and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg in a statement. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”
I have to say, I never saw Tyler Hoechlin as Superman. I just identify him so much as Derek Hale from Teen Wolf, I guess. It will be interesting to see his take on the iconic character.
I am glad that Supergirl is introducing Superman. I understand why they wanted him off screen last season but it did lead to some awkward moments like in the season finale when everyone but Superman woke up from the effects of Myriad.
