Fans of the former CBS, now CW, show Supergirl have been waiting patiently to discover who would be playing the Man of Steel. Some wondered if we were ever going to see Supergirl’s cousin appear on the show, apart from brief cameos featuring half of his body or a text message.
We finally have a CW Clark Kent. He will be played by former Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin. This was a surprise casting for the CW. Hoechlin previously played the brooding Derek Hale on the MTV supernatural series, so it will be interesting to see how he plays the symbol of hope, Superman. Tyler Hoechlin was previously rumored to have been a runner up for Batman in the DCEU, but with Tyler sticking to television for his superhero role we may get to see more of him than we would have otherwise.
Hoeclhlin is a very talented actor so we are excited to see him put on the cape and tights as CW’s Superman this fall on Supergirl. The Series will air Monday nights this fall at 8 p.m. ET/PT
