"Everybody Wants Some" - 2016 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive FestivalIt's a bird! It's a plane! It's ... a werewolf? According to Entertainment Weekly, "Supergirl" has cast "Teen Wolf" star Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, aka cousin to Kara/Supergirl. He'll appear in the first two episodes of "Supergirl" Season 2, which will premiere Mondays this fall on The CW, in a move from CBS.

"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 told EW. "We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character."

Hoechlin 28, played Derek Hale on the first four seasons of "Teen Wolf," and he'll soon be seen as Boyce Fox in "Fifty Shades Darker." He got his big break opposite Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Daniel Craig, and Jude Law in 2002's "Road to Perdition," and had a main role on "7th Heaven."

What do you think about Tyler Hoechlin as the new Man of Steel? Some Tom Welling fans are disappointed, since they were hoping for a "Smallville" crossover. Should Henry Cavill be worried about this Super new competition?
