Everybody Wants Some's Tyler Hoechlin will be Supergirl's Superman

06.16.2016

If you've been enjoying Supergirl on CBS (soon to be moved to the CW), then you're probably aware that the character of Superman will making his appearance at the start of season 2. Given that DC's television universe is separate from their cinematic variations, that meant a new actor would be taking on the coveted role, and that actor has been found in Tyler Hoechlin, star of Richard Linklater's EVERYBODY WANTS SOME and Derek Hale from Teen Wolf.

While comic book television isn't my particular cup of tea, I thought Hoechlin did a great job in Linklater's latest as a baseball player with a major chip on his shoulder. He certainly carries the look of a Superman, so I'm sure he'll do great in the role. From what I understand, DC has been doing fans right with their television shows, so this should be another welcome addition!

Season 2 of Supergirl will hit the CW this fall.

Meh

They really fucked up by not getting Tom Welling. It would have brought them way bigger ratings, more press, and would have satisfied fanboys.

And if you don't watch superhero shows why are you reporting on them? Assign the article to someone else. Or keep that fact to yourself. This is why I'm considering going to other sites for my news.

I also wanted Tom Welling to reprise his role, but this is still good casting tbh. Just shave that chin fluff off his face and Tyler should make a great Superman :)

Good choice...

I know some folks wanted Tom Welling to come back, but Tom had it in his contract to NEVER wear the suit. If he was that determined to never wear it, what makes people think he would come back to wear the suit? I think this is solid casting. Giving him a chance.

Actually it was showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar who were ridiculously bullish on the whole "no flights / no tights" rule. There are tons of interviews floating around where Welling expresses hope that he'll finally get to put on the costume "next season." And, indeed, he finally did get to wear the costume in the series finale.

Hate to break it to you, Telecine, but I didn't get owned. From Wikipedia and many other places if you do your research:

" Welling was adamant from the beginning that he did not sign on to play Superman, and had no intention of wearing the costume. While filming, Welling was allowed input into how his character responded in certain situations, including moving the scene between rooms, or requesting the director film particular mannerisms to emphasize a specific emotion."

He was the one

He was the one who requested the No flights No Tights to begin with. Own that.

Typical. Someone says something factual. Then someone else makes up total bullshit and tells the better informed person that they've been "pwned".

Maybe with lifts

He has the look but at 6'0" he is a little short for the Man of Steel and from what I read he's only a year older than Melissa Benoist so they will be asking us to accept that. But if thats the biggest problems with this casting I'm looking forward to see what they do.

She was older than Superman to begin with so they could easily be the same age after she spent time in the Phantom Zone.

She was a child when she arrived and he was an adult so on Earth he's like 12 or so years older
