After one season on CBS, the Supergirl series is moving to the CW for Season 2 with Superman said to appear in the first episode. Now if you know me, I am THE biggest Superman fan you will ever meet so I was very interested to see who they’ll get to play the Metropolis Marvel because with Henry Cavill rocking it on the big screen, it’s going to be tough to get someone nearly as good. Well it was announced today that Tyler Hoechlin is going to be putting on the red cape.
Now since I am a Superman fan, I do want to be optimistic about this so I just spent a good five minutes looking at this actor (don’t read to much into that) and my opinion so far is that I don’t see it, he looks more like a Bruce Wayne than a Clark Kent to me. Though I did find a picture of the actor clean shaven and he does look a lot better for the role then but there’s more to the role than looking good. How is his acting? Well I’ve never seen anything with this actor so I can’t tell. HOWEVER when the first image of Henry Cavill first came up, I wasn’t all that impressed because I had never seen the actor before in my life so I will hold judgement on this casting until I see a few images and a teaser showing him in action. A picture is worth a thousand words but a trailer is worth a thousand pictures.
What are your thoughts on Tyler Hoechlin’s casting as Superman AKA Clark Kent AKA Kal-El? Hate it or love it? Let me know in the comments below!
