Whilst Dylan O'Brien continues to recover following his awful The Maze Runner: The Death Curse injury, another member of the Teen Wolf cast has turned their attention elsewhere - with Tyler Hoechlin landing  a big role in Supergirl. Oooh.

Yep, he'll officially be taking on the big honcho Superman himself in the new series, which airs on The CW this autumn, and it'll see him visit his cousin Kara aka Supergirl in the National City where they begin to fight crime together.

EXCITING.

Speaking about the casting, Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement: "Greg and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman. We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character."

It's thought producers are still planning on keeping the character of Superman as a reoccurring presence rather than full-time role, but still - any Tyler air time? We're keen.
