So which version of the Man of Steel is more your speed? Maybe you still ache for Smallville's Tom Welling to take the role again? Maybe you dig what Henry Cavill has done in the DCU? Or perhaps your favorite is one of the many versions offered by Warner Bros. Animation? Starting next fall there will be one more Superman for you to choose from as Tyler Hoechlin (Everybody Wants Some!!!) joins the cast of Supergirl for its second season, and now we have the first look at him all suited and looking superheroic alongside star, Melissa Benoist.
Superman had a small role in a few episodes of the first season but only in flashback or through online correspondence with his cousin Kara. He'll appear in the season's first two episodes, arriving in National City to confront Supergirl on the proper way to be a hero, as if there's some kind of superhero guidebook.
And you know this is just the beginning. If fans react positively you know Greg Berlanti will be cooking up ideas for a proper Superman series and eventual crossover with The Flash, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. It's only a matter of time. Supergirl returns for its second season on Monday, October 10th, now on The CW. [CBM]
