Tyler Hoechlin Talks Playing Superman

Having just been cast in the role of Superman in The CW’s “Supergirl” series, “Teen Wolf” and “Road to Perdition” actor Tyler Hoechlin has spoken about his take on the Man of Steel and the pressure to compete with Henry Cavill’s version from the films.

Mail Online spoke with Hoechlin at the Sydney Film Festival premiere of “Everybody Wants Some” last weekend where he said: “I never try to compare and contrast performances because it’s such an iconic character already… Superman is Superman so I’m just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part.”

Hoechlin also seemingly confirmed that we’ll see both Superman AND Clark Kent n the series: “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.” There’s no word on how large Superman’s role will be in both the show and The CW’s DC universe moving forward.
