Ever since Superman touched down this season on Supergirl, fans have been hoping that The Man Of Steel, portrayed by Tyler Hoechlin, would be the next DC Comics character to get a spinoff.
While the small screen superhero was praised by fans for being more joyful and less broody than his big screen counterpart, network president Marc Pedowitz reveals that there are currently no plans in place for a Superman series on The CW.
“Tyler did a great job,” he said following his panel at the Television Critics Association’s press tour earlier today. “There’s no plan to do a series. There are no plans at the moment for him to return [to Supergirl]. If they wish to have him return, we’d love to have him.”
However, executive producer Greg Berlanti seemed a little more hopeful.
“Look, we were just really lucky,” he admits. “We asked to have him come on for the first couple episodes and they were great about it. We’d love to have Tyler back, he’s amazing, he was great in the role. In success, I think all those things are possible. I’m always the guy who says ‘yes’ if there seems to be an appetite for it and the people involved are really nice.”
