USA Today is reporting that Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin will wear the big red “S” in season 2 of Supergirl this fall. Though many fans wanted to see Tom Welling back in the role of Clark Kent, this will continue to distance the new DC TV universe from the Smallville world.
Showrunners are happy to have him and the character on the show saying:
In a statement, Andrew Kreisberg said that he and fellow executive producer Greg Berlanti “have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”
Casting is happening fast for all the shows, but this was the one all the fans were waiting for. We should have more updates as we get closer to SDCC, and perhaps a look at him in costume during the Con.
