Hoechlin will play the legendary superhero in season two of the CW series.
When asked how his Superman will be different, Hoechlin said he just hopes to make the character his own:
Definitely not actively or purposefully trying to do anything the same or different. Just looking at the character for what it is on the page and in this story and this representation of the character. There’s been multiple, multiple versions of Superman, so the producers and I had a great meeting about what we find fascinating and interesting about the character, what I personally find interesting about him. So, you know, just trying to stay true to those ideas and those thoughts, definitely not trying to include or dis-clude anything that’s been done previously or going on right now. So, just really trying to make it my own and I think that’s always the best way to go about it when you do something like this.”
Season two of Supergirl is set to premiere on October 10th.
