Tyler Hoechlin had a similar kind of story like every other successful DC star. Just like Ben Affleck, Heath Ledger, Gal Gadot, Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller he too wasn’t a fan favorite. Most likely due to his immature facial expressions and a poorly made costume. With a virtuoso already playing Superman in movies, Tyler’s superman didn’t stand a chance in front of Henry Cavill’s.
But the things changed. Like other DC stories, when Tyler first appeared on TV’s Supergirl season 2 episode 1. He became a fan favourite. Internet was now flooded with memes praising him. There’s a section of fans even demanding for a supergirl spin-off on Superman starring Tyler Hoechlin. Things changes for him quite easily.
His charming face, eyes filled with humour and sarcasm brought an all new Superman, rarely seen before. This tyro was now getting recognition. But is his personal success as Superman enough to get him his own spin-off? The answer most probably is NO. Here are few reasons why this isn’t happening any time soon.
Tyler’s Superman is complete opposite of Henry Cavill’s Superman
Which we all though was going to be his positive point could turn out to be a dismissive factor. With DC already being preservative about it’s character and not letting them be in both cinematic and TV universe, it is unlikely that Superman will get a cut for long. With opposite charactered supermans out there people will tend to desire more from the other one. It won’t be a good idea to make Henry’s Superman light and funny.
2. Krypton is on it’s way!
Yes, with per Batman Gotham doing well on TV, DC bosses are all set to bring Pre Superman era in a TV series names “Krypton”. Which will be based on life and politics of Krypton, starring Cameron Cuffe as Superman’s Grand father Ser-El. The shows pilot has already been shot and Syfy network is most likely to telecast the series. Again, with Krypton running and Supergirl doing fine, Superman is less likely to get a TV slot.
3. DC should focus more on making the existing shows better.
Rather than adding one more TV series in our “TO WATCH LIST”, DC should focus on making the existing shows better. With Arrow failing to make an impact in past 2 season, The Flash also losing it’s viewership, SUpergirl from being almost cancelled to DC’s Legends of tomorrow being an under achiever. WB, DC and CW have a lot on their plate already. They should focus more on regaining it’s viewers trust and providing the fans what they really want to watch.
