“Teen Wolf” alum Tyler Hoechlin will make his return as Superman on the Season 2 finale of “Supergirl,” according to E! Online.
Superman joined his cousin Kara Danvers when she made her debut on The CW after moving networks from CBS. At the time, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg commented, “We’re thrilled with working Tyler, which has been an amazing experience. We just selfishly hope we get to do it again because it really added to the show in a way.”
There was an effort to not oversaturate “Supergirl” with Superman’s presence and allow the Girl of Steel to find her own footing on a new network. “We very cognizant of not wanting him to come in and steal her thunder, so this Superman that we designed was something that you really haven’t seen too much of,” Kreisberg said. “Usually when you see Superman, even when it’s in the Christopher Reeve movie or ‘Man of Steel’ or ‘Lois & Clark,’ he’s just starting out and we wanted to show Superman who’s been doing this for a decade and has gotten really, really good at it.”
It is unclear what will bring Superman back to National City.
Starring Melissa Benoist as the Girl of Steel, “Supergirl” airs Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter and Chris Wood as Mon-El.
