‘Supergirl’ Casts Tyler Hoechlin as Superman for Season 2

Supergirl” has found its Man of Steel; “Teen Wolf” alum Tyler Hoechlin has been cast as Superman/Clark Kent in Season 2 of the Greg Berlanti-produced drama, which is making the jump from CBS to The CW for its sophomore outing.

“Greg and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg in a statement. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”

Hoechlin recently starred in Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some!!” alongside Blake Jenner — the husband of “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist — who has also appeared on the superhero drama. Hoechlin will next be seen in “Stratton” alongside Dominic Cooper and Tom Felton. Previous credits include “Road To Perdition,” “Hall Pass” and “Solstice.”

When news of Superman’s casting was first announced, Kreisberg released a statement on behalf of the show’s producing team, which includes Berlanti and Ali Adler. “Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of ‘Supergirl,'” he said. “Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season.”

Hoechlin is repped by UTA, Management 360, and attorney Todd Rubinstein.

“Supergirl” Season 2 will air Mondays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
