If you were sad to see Tyle Hoechlin fly up, up, and away from Supergirl earlier this season, then you don't need to be sad for much longer. According to a report by E! Online, it looks like the former Teen Wolf star will be making a return to Supergirl. The site reports that the star is set to make an appearance in the finale of season two.
At this moment, there are no details on how Hoechlin will return to the show, but many fans are simply glad to hear the star is coming back. His entrance onto the show was well-received by fans and critics. The actor was cast to play Superman, the older cousin to Kara Zor-El. Hoechlin's take on the iconic DC Comics hero was met with praise, and many went on to rally behind the hero getting his own solo show.
While flattered by the reception, Hoechlin has made it clear that his take on Superman was never meant to overshadow what Supergirl had to offer.
"The role of [Superman] coming into this, for me, from the very beginning, was to support her, which lends itself to being a supporting character," Hoechlin told press. "There was never an intention for this to be about him. It's always about her. It's called Supergirl, and Melissa has done such a great job. For him, it's always about building her up and being there to impart wisdom when he can and support her when he can, but in no way try to make her feel like she's not capable of doing anything that he could do."
Andrew Kreisberg went on to say The CW had not ruled out giving Superman his own show later on down the road.
"I'm not going to sit here and say that there's never going to be a world in which there is a Superman TV show and that Tyler's going to star in it," Kreisberg said. "I don't know what the future holds. But right now, that's not our focus. Right now, we're working on Supergirl, which is the flagship, and working on a way for Tyler to reprise the role is really what our focus is on Supergirl right now."
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
Based on the DC character, Supergirl AKA Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero who she was always meant to be on The CW series, "Supergirl."
In Season Two, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant's assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO., protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.
