FANTASTIC news E! News is reporting that Tyler is coming back to Supergirl for the season finale (Episode 22). Let’s go back to when Tyler was announced that he will be joining the show as Superman. I was not impressed at all – I was sure Superman was going to overshadow Kara/Supergirl. 2x01 was a MASTERPIECE and Tyler was incredible. I loved everything about him and the way he interacted with Kara – EVERYTHING. Tyler impressed me so much I want to see a Superman tv show.
Andrew said as much to reporters about Tyler and how he blended into the show:
“We’re thrilled with working Tyler, which has been an amazing experience,” he told reporters at the time. “We just selfishly hope we get to do it again because it really added to the show in a way,” he said. Kreisberg also credited the success of Supergirl’s Superman to the fact that Hoechlin was playing a Superman we hadn’t seen much of before.“We very cognizant of not wanting him to come in and steal her thunder, so this Superman that we designed was something that you really haven’t seen too much of,” Kreisberg said. “Usually when you see Superman, even when it’s in the Christopher Reeve movie or Man of Steel or Lois & Clark, he’s just starting out and we wanted to show Superman who’s been doing this for a decade and has gotten really, really good at it.” “He was really coming in as a supporting character for Kara, to be a friend and a cousin and a mentor,” he continued. “We simultaneously wanted to have a Superman who was relatable and fun and sort of everything that you remember about Superman from your childhood that was great, while also, at the same time, de-mystifying him a little bit.”
Now fast forward to today when we get the news that Tyler is heading back to National City for 2x22 (the season finale). Well that can only mean one thing…TROUBLE. Could the trouble be one very angry (and murderous) mother in Queen Rhea who will bring along her friends the Dominators? Hmm
We recently saw some behind the scenes photos of Floriana fending off Daxamite soldiers for 2x21…
and then there is the little problem of President Marsden and the big reveal about what alien race she was. Turns out she’s a Durlan – How does that impact on what Queen Rhea is doing? Marsden did warn Hank NOT to antagonize Queen Rhea…yeah that didn’t go to plan.
