Tyler Hoechlin returns as Superman for The CW’s Arrowverse crossover this year! Yes!

August 23rd, 2018 by Marc Comments

It looks like The CW’s superhero Arrowverse Crossover event this year (check out when it’ll air here).

DC Comics (below) have revealed that Joining Supergirl, Flash, Arrow (plus all their companions, sidekicks etc) along with Ruby Rose’s debut as Batwoman in the event, will be Tyler Hoechlin as the returning Superman!

On top of this, we’ll meet a so far upcast Lois Lane… the mythology building is second-to-none!

This is awesome news. Hoechlin played the Man of Steel early last season in Supergirl and really nailed the role, so it should be awesome to see him interact with the rest of the Arrowverse… but surely Superman, Batwoman and Gotham all appearing DC will allow Batman to be in it. Even just a nod. A glimpse! Something.

Although Network president Mark Pedowitz has previously said: “Batman already exists in the Arrowverse because last season Oliver Queen mentioned his name at one point, And Batwoman, if the series goes forward, lives in Gotham. There’s no plan at this time to have Batman appear.”

But we can hope.

We’re just never satisfied, are we?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
