And we have our new Superman.

THR reports that Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin will play Superman and Clark Kent in the second season of Supergirl.

Details include Superman will appear in the first two episodes next season visiting his cousin in National City.

“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. “We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”

A couple of years ago, we were exclusively told Tyler Hoechlin was up to play Batman prior to Ben Affleck landing the role, and now we see he’s landed the Man of Steel gig.

Supergirl returns with Season 2 in the Fall airing Mondays at 8pm ET on The CW.
