Tyler Hoechlin, 28, has to make a big impression as Superman, but he’s ready for the challenge. The former Teen Wolf star has nabbed the role of Superman on Supergirl, and it doesn’t bother him whatsoever that Henry Cavill, 33, is also playing the Man of Steel on the big screen. Tyler revealed he’s not going to “compare and contrast” his Superman to the ones that came before him.
“I never try to compare and contrast performances because it’s such an iconic character already,” he told.
“Superman is Superman so I’m just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part.”
While Henry is battling Lex Luthor and working on his bromance with Batman in the DC movie universe, Tyler’s looking forward to putting his own spin on Clark Kent, Superman’s alter ego.
