Tyler Hoechlin’s ‘Superman’ Inspired By Christopher Reeve & Lois & Clark

Don't expect to see the dark brooding angst ridden 'Man Of Steel' when we meet 'Superman' in the forthcoming second season of 'Supergirl'.

Don’t expect to see the dark brooding angst ridden ‘Man Of Steel’ when we meet ‘Superman’ in the forthcoming second season of ‘Supergirl’. That simply will not happen. Apparently Tyler Hoechin’s version of the character will owe more to the Christopher Reeve movies and ‘Lois & Clark’ than it will to Henry Cavill.

In a recent interview for Collider Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg talked about some of the classic influences that informed the writers on how ‘Superman’ will be in the new series of ‘Supergirl’.

“I think our take on him is probably something a little bit more traditional,” Kreisberg said.

“There’s certainly a little bit of the ‘Aw shucks’ about him, but he’s been Superman for awhile, so there’s [also] a savviness about him as Superman and as Clark.

He continued: “There’s a little bit of the Christopher Reeve Superman in there, a healthy dose of the Superman animated series, which we’re huge fans of, a little bit of Lois & Clark, a little George Reeves, and a little Super Friends.”

Tyler Hoechlin recently talked about trying to find Clark Kents sense of humour and urged fans not to compare him to a certain other onscreen ‘Superman’.
