David Harewood, who plays Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onzz on the “Supergirl” TV series, posted the following photo on Instagram this morning, showing himself in a group shot with Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Chyler Leigh (Alex) and Tyler Hoechlin (Superman), along with somebody called “Dean” photobombing in the background.
Is this an old photo or could this mean that Tyler is coming back for another appearance as Superman for an upcoming episode of “Supergirl”?
With Tyler in the Superman costume, it could be assumed that the other actors are also in costume. If that’s the case, I looked back at footage from the two episodes that Tyler appeared as Superman from the beginning of this season of “Supergirl”, and in none of the scenes from those episodes is Winn wearing the shirt we see him in in this photo.
You’ll recall that The CW President Mark Pedowitz told EW.com at the Television Critics Association’s press tour back in January that, “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.”
I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
Update: David Harewood has confirmed via Twitter that this is an old photo. So no Tyler Hoechlin in upcoming episodes.
