... Tyler Hoechlin!
Not long after producers confirmed that Supergirl Season 2 would feature a multiple-episode visit from Superman, the CW (formerly CBS) drama has announced that Hoechlin has landed this iconic role.
He will guest star on the first two installments of the series this fall as The Man of Steel.
“[Executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” Supergirl showrunner Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement.
“We are so thrilled and humbled to add another amazing actor to the legacy of this iconic character.”
On Superman Season 1, viewers were treated to the very occasional glimpses of Superman, but we never saw his face. »

With his singularly gruesome horror features (and an episode of CSI: Miami to boot), by now you are either a fan of Rob Zombie‘s directorial style or not. The musician-director-writer-producer is now back this year with his latest genre feature, 31. Premiering at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the first trailer has now landed ahead of a fall release.
The plot finds a group of carnival workers who get held hostage on the night before Halloween and must take part in a deadly game, all while crazy clowns and more attack. Starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and Meg Foster, check out the trailer and poster below.
From the visionary mind of the man who brought us House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and Halloween comes the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game or life or death called 31. For the next 12 hours they must fight for their lives against an endless parade of homicidal maniacs.
31 opens on September 16th.

The project, which is based on Joe Sharkey’s non-fiction book of the same name and is scripted by Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning), tells the true story “of a newly married FBI poster-boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. There he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it’s a ticket to disaster for both of them.

It's officially the end of an era at CBS, with the network canceling its latest -- and last remaining -- "CSI" property, "CSI: Cyber," bringing the once-revered franchise to an end.
"CSI: Cyber" ran for two abbreviated season on CBS, though it was never able to achieve the heights of its parent series, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," which exploded onto the scene in 2000 and was once the most-watched program on television, peaking at more than 26 million viewers in its heyday.
