RUMOR: The CW Developing ‘Superman’ TV Series with Tyler Hoechlin
With the constant updates that Henry Cavill will not be returning to the DC Cinematic Universe as Superman, it looks as if WB is shifting the character to the small screen. According to FandomWire, they are hearing that The CW is looking into developing a Superman TV Series. Obviously, the network originally had Smallville which followed Clark Kent (Played by Tom Welling) as he grew into Superman in the final episode.
However, due to the massive praise, Supergirl star Tyler Hoechlin has received for his cameo appearances he may get a show himself. The only thing that seems to be off about the report is if the network has a Superman series what will happen to Supergirl? Would make Supergirl almost useless due to their shared villains, storylines, etc. So we will leave this as rumor until more information presents itself…
Superman TV Series has no set release date
