In a new interview with DCComics.com, Tyler Hoechlin talks about where things are at for Clark in Season 2 of “Superman & Lois,” and whether he has any regrets so far as a father of two twin boys.
In the past year, Superman has gone through a lot as a father. What do you think is his biggest regret as a parent?
I think we hit on that pretty early in the show—the amount of time that he wasn’t spending with them. It’s a thing that we wanted to touch on from day one with the show. There’s a lot of demand. It’s not easy being a parent. I was really blessed to have great parents. They were around a lot. As I’ve gotten older, it’s been a realization that that’s not a given. That’s not something that you’re entitled to. I was really lucky to have that.
I think with Clark, there’s a lot on his plate. It’s something that he feels is his calling and his purpose, and so he has to do it, but finding that balance is something that I think he realized was out of balance. And I think that there needs to be a more concentrated effort to be there for his kids during these years that are really forming who they’re going to become when he’s no longer around and they’re making their place in the world.
