Wrapping up our SUPER SUNDAY of Summer Con Announcements. Please welcome our fourth Superman, Tyler Hoechlin, to Puyallup for an incredible opportunity on Sunday at the Washington State Summer Con. Tyler is the current Superman on the CW television series Superman & Lois. Can you say Group Superman Photo Ops? Wow!
At the age of 13, Hoechlin was selected from 2,000 auditionees to play Michael Sullivan Jr. in Road to Perdition alongside Tom Hanks. That performance led to him getting the role of Martin Brewer in the television show 7th Heaven. Hoechlin played werewolf Derek Hale in the television series Teen Wolf and was a regular on the show for the first four seasons, and returned as a guest star for the sixth and final season in 2017.
Hoechlin was cast as Superman on the CW show Supergirl in 2016. He was producer Greg Berlanti’s first choice for the role and did not have to audition. In 2018, Hoechlin returned to Supergirl as part of the annual Arrowverse crossover episodes, titled “Elseworlds”. He also appeared in the corresponding crossover episodes of both Arrow and The Flash, which all aired in December 2018. Hoechlin returned to the Arrowverse for the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” episodes.
In October 2019, it was confirmed that Superman & Lois, a spin-off series starring Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, was in development at the CW who picked it up straight-to-series in January 2020. The series premiered in 2021 and was renewed for a third season in March 2022.
His other film roles include Undrafted, Bigger, Fifty Shades Freed, and Teen Wolf: The Movie. Tyler voiced Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII games since 2020.
