With Tyler Hoechlin’s appearance as Superman in the first two episodes of “Supergirl” Season 2, fans have been speculating on whether The CW could launch a spin-off TV series for the Man of Steel. During a recent Q&A session Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg explained how happy they’ve been having been able to bring Superman in to their TV universe, but that’s really the extent of their focus for the immediate future.
“We’re so happy with what we get to do,” Kreisberg said. “I don’t mean for that to sounds as bad as it does, but we asked if we could have Superman in the first episode, and DC and Warner Bros. said ‘you could have him for the first two episodes’ and we were like ‘great!'”
That doesn’t mean a Superman TV series couldn’t happen…
“I’m not going to sit here and say that there’s never going to be a world in which there’s a Superman TV show and that Tyler’s going to star in it – I don’t know what the future holds, but right now that’s not our focus.”
“Right now, we’re working on Supergirl, which is the flagship, and we’re working on a way for Tyler to reprise the role,” Kreisberg added. “That’s really what our focus is: on Supergirl.”
