Supergirl: Tyler Hoechlin To Bring Humour Back To Superman

"I never try to compare and contrast performances, because it's such an iconic character already," he said.

Last week Tyler Hoechlin was cast as Superman for the next series of ‘Supergirl’, which will air on CW. In a recent interview for The Daily Mail. The ‘Teenwolf’ actor said that he’ll be looking to bring some much needed fun back to ‘Superman’.

“I never try to compare and contrast performances, because it’s such an iconic character already,” he said.

“Superman is Superman, so I’m just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part.

“I think the fun is going to be finding where Clark Kent is in this world. I’m just excited to find out Clark’s sense of humour.”

Many fans of criticised Henry Cavill’s portrayal of ‘Superman’ as lacking humour. So from this point of view it will be good to see what Hoechlin can bring for the small screen incarnation.

Hoechlin will debut as Clark Kent in the first two episodes of season two.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg previously said: “Greg [Berlanti] and I 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.”

Previously, Superman’s presence on Supergirl has been limited to being shot from behind or shown only in flashbacks as a child.

‘Supergirl’ will return on The CW this fall.
