After debuting on CBS last year, Supergirl will be making the leap to The CW in the Autumn, the network responsible for airing shows like Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow.
Whether or not that means the Girl of Steel will join their world remains to be seen (there’s been speculation that the events of Flashpoint will make that the case), but we do know that Superman is going to be making his presence felt with Tyler Hoechlin playing the hero.
How did he land the iconic role in Supergirl season two? It was easier than you might think!
“Honestly, it was the strangest thing — there wasn’t an audition,” the actor revealed in a recent interview with EW. “I had a great meeting with [executive producers] Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg [in June]. I had been told that the meeting would have something to do with Supergirl, but nothing really specific. Halfway through, they brought up the idea of introducing Superman to the show and asked if I’d be interested. I said, ‘Yeah, absolutely. I’m obviously a fan.’ I believe that was on a Monday. On Friday, we got a call with the offer, so it was very quick. It was very flattering, and I wish every job came about that way.”
