One of the most exciting things that are coming to Supergirl Season 2 in the fall is the arrival of her super-cousin, Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman, who will be played by Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin which was announced last month as he will be in the first two episodes of the season. With Season 2 getting ready to start production in Vancouver, Canada, we are getting closer to finding out more about the show’s take on the Man of Steel as well as hopefully seeing Hoechlin in the super suit.
In a recent interview with Movie Fone, Hoechlin talked about getting into the role of Superman, preparations and more. When asked about being just as excited to play the Clark Kent side of the Last Son of Krypton, he said the following.
“Oh, absolutely! Absolutely. I think it’s a part that you can’t really … it’s not complete without him. So I’m definitely excited to see both sides of him.”
He also spoke about the honor it is to be playing such an iconic and legendary role like Superman.
“It’s definitely incredibly humbling and flattering to even be given the chance to do it. And I think, I’m just going to do as much as I can to see how to bring the true spirit of the character to the show. I know they have instructed me not to talk about it too much before I actually get there and actually do it. I’m excited to just kind of look at it from doing it with a clean slate and not trying to replicate or duplicate anything that’s been done, but just being honest to the story and how they’re writing him.”
In addition, he was asked if his workout regime has changed now that he is playing Superman on Supergirl.
“I have definitely been in the gym more than I have been in the last two years, yes! That’s definitely been happening.”
We should be learning more about Season 2 of Supergirl next week at San Diego Comic-Con when the cast and crew of the show hosts their panel on Saturday, July 23.
Supergirl Season 2 is set to premiere on Monday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
