“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”

Longtime fans of Smallville were hoping that Tom Welling might reprise his role as Clark Kent. Of course that wouldn’t have made much sense from a continuity standpoint. Let’s just home Hoechlin is a more optimistic Superman than Henry Cavill.
