Superman is in the house!!
Melisssa Benoist, David Harewood, Chyler Leigh, Mechad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan and executive Sarah Schechter were already on stage when Tyler Hoechlin made his entrance, sending the crowd into a frenzy at San Diego Comic Con.
To be fair, Tyler Hoechlin has been a draw no matter the show he's been on (we're looking at you, Teen Wolf), and it's been a while since he's been on a panel.
However, he revealed production hasn't even begun on Season 2, so he hasn't even tried on the suit.
Adding, "That'll be a moment, for sure.
Don't expect things to be all hunky dory between the cousins at first. They'll have their issues.
“Clark has a very different experience of what it means to have superpowers on Earth,” the EP explained. “There’s some real head-butting and philosophical approaches that are different. We’ll get into all that.”
“Big things are happening,” Schechter teased about what will bring Lynda Carter as President into the mix. “Big things have to happen to get Superman and Supergirl together.”
If that helps any of our comic book reading friends in the audience deduce exactly who Wood will be playing, please drop hints in the comments.
The panel talked a bit about the move from CBS to The CW and how easy it is to fit in. They all understand exactly what you're talking about when you say "metahuman."
Benoist took some time to appreciate the past year and what it's meant to her being Supergirl.
“I honestly look back, and I don’t know how I did a lot of the things we did,” she said. “I feel like I’ve grown so much, kind of simultaneously along with Kara.”
Brooks appeased the shippers in the audience with a little repartee about the romantic leanings of Kara and James.
Not only did he say it was a workplace relationship, but it's new and has it's ups and downs and "tumultuous things."
“It’s weird, because I read [Episode] 201, and it starts with our wedding,” he joked. “I thought that was really fast.”
And what do you think of Winn becoming a DEO staff member? Because it's on the table.
“I think he’s looking for a straight-up job. I think it would make the DEO a little more fun,” Jordan said. “It’s a little serious right now.”
