This is the new Superman

The Man of Steel is joining Supergirl season two


Clark Kent and his rather famous alter ego have been hidden away in Supergirl so far, keeping well out of the spotlight with just a few faceless glimpses.


But now The Man of Steel is joining the second series of the CBS show – and he’ll be played by Tyler Hoechlin, an actor who got his big break in 2002 movie Road to Perdition and has since starred in US series Teen Wolf.

We can see why he’s been cast – sure, he’s probably a good actor but more to the point, those glasses alone scream CLARK KENT don’t they?


As Supergirl’s (Melissa Benoist) cousin, he’ll be donning his red cape to help her combat the forces of evil. Aw, family.
