Well its happened!
After a muddled first season, Supergirl is moving on to the CW for her next and in the two part opener it was announced that her cousin Superman will be coming to meet her,
With many hoping that Tom Welling would be reprising his role from Smallville, the role instead has gone to Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin who will don the red underpants, and with it, bring a huge new fanbase to the show.
“Greg Berlanti and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has said. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”
This casting and announcement has brought hope to legions of fans everywhere that DC are relenting when it comes to their TV Shows. Having been restricted on shows like Arrow and The Flash to mention certain characters like Batman and most notably Harley Quinn who was due a big role in Arrow season 2, maybe this change of tack and bringing Superman back to the small screen, may mean a certain Bruce Wayne will turn up in Star City.
If DC and Warner Bros want to maximum the potential of these shows, there is no reason why not, especially now as we have a perfectly brilliant Flash on the small screen, but a different actor set for the big screen.
Here is hoping! As for Hoechlin, the whole comic book fans will be waiting to see on his take on Superman, where the pressure is going to be huge.
