Superman Actor Cast for Supergirl on The CW

DC Entertainment announced earlier this month that Superman would be making an appearance next season on The CW’s Supergirl. Today we learn who the Superman actor is!

Actor Tyler Hoechlin has been cast in the iconic role. You can look for him to make a two-episode appearance at the very beginning of Season 2. Hoechlin was last seen in Richard Linklater’s ‘80s-set baseball dramedy Everybody Wants Some!, in which he had a lead role. He’s also appeared in Road to Perdition, Hall Pass, Solstice and Teen Wolf.

“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” says Supergirl Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”

Superman has been referred to on Supergirl many times and has engaged with Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel on several occasions via instant messaging. However, so far the only glimpses we’ve seen of him have been from a distance or greatly obscured.
