    John answers viewers questions about a possible CW Superman series.
    PATREON SUPPORTER Dan Ketchum writes, I know you hated the "jobber" thing they did with Superman in Supergirl (I did too). But I think the actor Tyler Hoechlin is actually pretty good in the role. They are now saying he is going to be in all 3 episodes of the crossover. Could this mean that in addition to (or instead of) the Batwoman series, they are also testing the waters for a Superman series? (hopefully done a bit better)

    I don't think Supes is a jobber. It's not just his show, it's Supergirl... It's time for other characters to step up and introduce themselves...

    Assuming that Superman ever does get another TV show, which I doubt, there is the slight possibility that he could learn some sort of Kryptonian martial art during his time at Argo City while Lois is giving birth to their child, and that new fighting skill would make him a better fighter than Supergirl. I mean, ifwe're gonna imagine a decent Superman series, we might as well figure out some way to make the big guy Number 1 again, right?
    As for Batman ever confronting Green Arrow, the only possible way that hey could ever pull that off effectively would be if they left the question unanswered, sort of like the old, "Who is stronger, Thor or the Hulk?" question from back in the '60's and '70's in the Marvel comics.

    PASS!!!!!!! The dude from teenwolf SUCKS I'm bigger than him I'd like to stand next to him while he's in the suit and destroy the illusion for those who can't all ready tell. (He's no Superman) and batwoman is boring and gross. Lesbians like girls not the Butch aggressive dude you are giving us. If you want to show gay pride why give her a feminine Batgirl costume. Wouldn't a better lesbian statement be her wearing the batMAN cowl? Wouldn't that be a better lesbian batwoman. Seems like if you want to fight social injustice. You could start with the stereotypes lesbians have to deal with (like the agressive Butch) imagine all her scenes played by a man instead of her. Would you still like her? The way she closes the distance when talking to Supergirl and hinting to hidden tattoos? ....Hypocrites

    god, can't believe i got clickbaited so hard lol. shame on me >.<

    edit : but to add to the conversation. if they do a superman tv series. they could go all out. superman has a lot of big baddies. so one season could be about zod, another about doomsday another about darkseid, kinda like they did in smallville, but with less whiny teen drama and more mature themes. there could be a season with like mongol... they can have A) it set before supergirl so lex would not be in jail and instead of having lex as a 1 season villain, they could have him just trying to disrupt clark and stuff through out all the seasons. or B) they could have it after supergirl has been introduced already and just ignore lex lol.

    Personally, give Supes a pass. Here is a chance to have the non Bats/Supes part of the DCU shine. Ten years of Smallville, 3(?) years of Lois + Clark, and Krypton will air separately. The TV DCU works because each show has a supporting cast that actually helps. Lois Lane gets in trouble, drags Jimmy Olsen with her, and they really don't help Supes much. Bats won't have the 1st Robin, and Gotham is still airing.

    CW does not do the characters of DC Comics right. I wish DC comics heads gotsome courage and tell the CW folks to make their characters more like the Comic.Characters so both images are the same. Where does Hollywood get these crazy writers & developers who fight against what the Comic characters are and create some watered down politically correct, distorted characters.

    Grrrr! Superman shouldn't lose to the Flash or to Supergirl, in fact he should never lose to ANYONE!!!! After all, it's not like he get beaten up by General Zod and has to kill him at the end of Man of Steel. It's not as if he gets his butt handed to him by Batman in both The Dark Knight Returns and Batman V. Superman, or gets beaten up by a random truck driver in Superman II. SUPERMAN NEVER LOSES A FIGHT!!!!! DO YOU HEAR ME CW?!?!?!?

    I love the idea of a Tyler Hoechlin Superman series. He played Clark Kent/Superman incredibly well. Not the dark Broodie version from Henry Cavill. Hoechlin gave that vibe of hope and care for the people which is Superman. Just not a huge fan of the Costume

    I dont think so because come on is Superman you dont need to prove nothing to do a new show about him.
    Plus, i think Supergirl is the Superman of the CW if you know what i mean, they did Supergirl to put a lead female character but basically in this Universe they put Supergirl in representation of "Supes family"

  • Ecliptor Calrissian
    Ecliptor Calrissian 9 months ago

    When it comes to the idea of this vs a Man of Steel 2, I'd LOVE a show about Superman but don't trust Zack Snyder to make a movie that's recognizably him after two films of Super-Emo-Man who thinks he's Batman and just broods all the time. And I would really like to see the Superman of Supergirl instead of just another reboot because the show would be a bit different than the normal formula. Instead of starting at the beginning of his career like every other version, we've got one where he and all of his supporting cast have been doing their thing a few years. They've moved up; Cat's become Perry, Jimmy's become Lois... so what are the actual Perry and Lois doing now? Everyone's moved on to bigger and better things and we can *watch them in those things.* Really see how they've grown, and how they grow even further from where they are. On top of that, we've got a Superman who acts like Superman, charming and fun and still NOT to be screwed with.
    Let the DCEU go. It's just another MCU imitation to fail, every new film is supposed to be The One That Fixes It, and is always considered to have fallen short of that. Meanwhile, in the Arrowverse we ALREADY have a beloved live-action DC Comics shared universe, and when Tyler Hoechlin's Superman guest-appeared in three episodes of someone else's show he was instantly being spoken of in the same sentence as Christopher Reeve. The search for the new Superman, the quest to get him right... it's complete! It's right here! No need to try to reinvent the wheel with a reboot that'll be the opposite of reinvention and just retell origin stories we already know, or try to beat us over the head with "It's not supposed to be fun, everyone's supposed to wear black and stand around looking sad" until we give up and want that like Snyder would do. We've FOUND this generation's Superman, he just needs a little more screentime to show the world!

    Here's the thing about Superman on other CWDC tv shows -
    If Superman can do everything and beat everyone, then why have these other characters? Which is why he's used so sparingly and why, as long as CW wants a Supergirl show, there will not be a Superman show.

  • Megumi Inoue

    Or maybe they are paving the way to make a justice league tv series not a super man tv show. They already had a super girl show why would they made another super show much more super man when they already did had smallvill. I don't understand why you people call the man hinter and Superman a jobber at super girls' season two, but maybe you forgot that the show is super girl? Not super man nor the martian man hunter. So it's natural that they will be used as side character in a show that they aren't the main character. Both Superman and Batman even much more the whole justice league in the young justice was treated as side characters, but how come no one complain about that? And now that super girl is doing it, now they complain about it, lol. The netizens are so complicated.
    The show haven't release yet you already downgrade Superman just you basing on what happened on super girl season 2. Are you sure that Superman would lose this time? For someone who is a fan of Superman, you put too little faith about him. If you really love Superman, any show he would be exposed or be seen, even if he is just side character, an extra, or a just a cameo of him, you should support his character in every way you can. Me I don't care whom the actor(s) that would portray him, as long as he got the essence and the characteristics of Superman, I will support that person. How small or big his part maybe.
    Oh one thing it's not the flash and arrow crossover it's arrow, the flash crossing over supergirl, I believe that batwoman is in supergirls earth. That's why they need Superman to show up in the show. I'm excited that Superman will be back, this time including Luis lane.
    As for man of still 2. That's up to the actor if he ever want reprise his character or not. It's not the Warner brothers fault. If the actor doesn't want to he has the rights. One thing I heard that Henry Cavill will be acting the main character at the Netflix show The Witcher, I don't know what would happen to man of steel 2 or any future franchise of Superman now that Cavill is going to be busy.

    I agree, that if they do a tv show they are taking him from movies..Superman and Batman have been pretty much off limits to TV because they do not want to over use their flagship characters for the big screen......maybe (as smallville) a red kryptonite or something that makes him evil and the other characters are trying to stop him but just cant quite do it, in comes Batwoman with gadgets and tech like Batman to save the day and get her

    Technically he CAN'T BEAT Supergirl so him losing is nothing new? Supergirl has been known to be stronger than Clark even in the comments! What are you people talking about him losing all the time in the Arrowverse? Are we watching the same shows? He can't beat Flash in a race unless he is flying basically! Now if they aren't doing a crossover with Legends then I'm fine with that...I HATE THAT SHOW! So if they bring Superman and Batwoman on the scene then then kick that show off the air please. And I don't agree with you in that they won't make a man of steel 2 because he's on the CW. Just saying...

    There is a Supergirl movie in development that is not connected to the CW series which is rumored to take Man of Steel 2's place. Also The Flash (Flashpoint) Worlds of DC movie is also in development and no sign of The Flash TV series being cancelled. Just saying if Man of Steel 2 gets cancelled it will probably have nothing to do with a new Superman TV series.

    They're experimenting with yet another Superman and Batwoman adaptation whereas Wonder Woman is yet again sidelined. I hope they bring Themyscira to Legends of Tomorrow. We already have Krypton. We need more Wonder Woman Spin-Offs. A younger Diana wouldn't be that bad.
    Besides remember Smallville and Superman Returns? WB isn't that worried about it.
    I wouldn't mind antagonistic Superman since Supergirl is being inspired by Injustice 2.

  • David Pitts
    David Pitts 9 months ago

    I mean it makes sense that he would lose the race and Supergirl should always be stronger than Superman for legit reasons.
    So she should usually win a fight between the two.
    Superman gets his powers from the sun and all that because he was born on krypton. Supergirl lived on krypton for over a decade into her teens so her body spent way way way more time on krypton, well adjusted to the environment there. Therefore she should be stronger.
    But when you look at it technically like that then it brings up possible plot holes elsewhere with other kryptonians Superman has fought and whooped ass and not been underdog.
    Interesting topic though

    The CW since its Inception has has so many problems they gone through so many shows that they tried to use to beef up Dish Network I think that most of your die-hard DC fans that have seen all the Superman movies they know about the original Flash TV series from 1990 they seem Supergirl the movie they washed all the animated stuff they collected all the comics and then you look at what the production is doing
    It's this young teenybopper crowd that they're trying to Target as a demographic and you look at the cast it is all young and you look at the crossover from the movies with the characters don't even using any of the TV series cast of these movies so it's inconsistent it's kind of boring and they're ripping off the story lines and some of the movies and then carried over into the TV series what can they do that's consistent not a whole lot
    They brought back Beauty and the Beast which started in 1987 and was on for three seasons that was a really good show they brought back Charmed after all of the issues with the production and involving Aaron Spelling as executive producer so what are you going to bring back now what are you going to try and recreate it just gets boring after awhile it doesn't matter what they do with the character they're going to mess it up Superman is something that Christopher Reeve there's no topping his performance everybody knows that hands-down end of story
    Personally I think that they should keep Superman in the movie form because they tried it was Smallville there tried it with other things he didn't work was overdramatized over fictionalized unintelligent garbage both TV series that they had were stupid

    I liked Tyler Hoechlin (pronounced heck-lin) in Teen Wolf. Haven't seen but a couple of minutes of him in Supergirl, because that series is such an anti-male preachfest. I'm afraid you may be right about how they use him though. With Bendis and Wilson going to DC, it looks like they're out to destroy their own brand. Really, it's sad. Would love to see them decide to do a Supersons series with Peter Tomasi writing it.

      @Dave Fowler So what I were essentially saying is that SR came out the same time SV was on air which means 2 Superman properties existed at the same time on the big screen and small screen, so his theory about MOS 2 wouldn't come out if a Superman tv series aired doesn't really hold water does it? Also Henry Cavill's Superman is still in circulation yet Tyler Hoechlin still portrays Superman on small screen while this is happening, so again this guy's theory doesn't make much sense.
