Tyler Hoechlin has been cast to portray Superman in season 2 of the CW’s Supergirl.

Hoechlin, is well known for previously playing fan favourite Derek Hale on MTV’s Teen Wolf. Hoechlin’s other acting credits also include roles in films such as Hall Pass, Solstice and Everybody Wants Some.

Supergirl teased the appearance of present day Clark Kent throughout the show’s first season.

The show’s executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly that:

“Tyler is Superman,”

Once Supergirl returns to our TV screens we will see Hoechlin as Clark Kent in National City during the first two episodes of season two while he visits his cousin Kara.

It is unknown yet whether or not Hoechlin’s Superman will appear in more than the first two episodes of the second season.

Most fans seem to be happy about Supergirl’s casting news however not all are happy with the 28-year-old being cast.

After news broke of Hoechlin’s casting he tweeted:


Hoechlin has also received support from fellow ‘superhero’ Grant Gustin, who is currently The Flash on CW’s show of the same name.

Supergirl is expected to return later this year and with a cross over between The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl confirmed by CW President Mark Pedowitz to air in December, you can probably expect Supergirl’s return to be not too far away.
