Becoming Superman is not quite as easy as it looks on TV, according to new “Supergirl” cast member Tyler Hoechlin. “The character’s always made it look very quick and seamless. It’s a bit of a group effort the first time,” Hoechlin said. “It’s very much like putting on a wet suit. … We got it down to a science.” The “Teen Wolf” alum joins the CW superhero drama in its second season, showing up in National City go help out his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) for the first time on screen.

If you were like me, you were a bit annoyed with all the references Supergirl kept making to “her cousin” throughout the inaugural season of the show. The references were definitely more blatant early on, but that doesn’t mean they were gone at the tail end. Superman showed up in the distance in CG form near the season’s conclusion, but we still never got a good look at him. As annoying as it was that they kept referencing him in a show that was trying to break away from Superman’s identity, it was even more annoying that they wouldn’t show his darn face!
Luckily for us, along with the recent transition from CBS to the CW, Supergirl will also be giving us Superman in the flesh. No, this iteration of the Man of Steel won’t be portrayed by Batman v Superman’s Henry Cavill, but »

It may be officially fall, but that hasn't stopped Bella Thorne and Tyler Posey from soaking up the sun—together. As buzz surrounds their newfound romance, the stars stripped down to their swimsuits for an afternoon by the pool. A day after Thorne's 19th birthday, she spent some quality time with the Teen Wolf actor and a fellow gal pal during a picture-perfect Sunday. The Duff star chronicled the day on Snapchat, where she happily posed for selfies with her beau. Hours earlier, Thorne spent her special day surrounded by her closest female friends and squeezed in time for a septum piercing at Body Electric Tattoo in Hollywood. "Yeah I can take it... #septum »

In typical Teen Wolf fashion, the first 10 minutes of the MTV drama’s final season are as horrifying as they are confusing — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

And speaking of help, Scott and Stiles »

This is going to be one hell of a final season. Teen Wolf just released a trailer for its final season, and we may or may not have watched it four or five times while our skin erupted in goose bumps. The trailer finds Scott (Tyler Posey), Lydia (Holland Roden), and the rest of the Beacon Hills gang struggling to remember their friend Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) after he was taken by some horrible memory-erasing guys in hats. "What if we're all missing the same person?" Scott wonders, after Lydia forgets who she was supposed to be meeting up with. Even Stiles' dad struggles to remember who he is, and we just can't handle all of this. We're especially having »

The show’s final season finds Dylan O’Brien’s character in danger of being wiped from existence, prompting his friends to keep him alive in their memories. And while Scott is surely going to play a major role in saving his best friend’s life, it’s Lydia who takes the lead in this latest trailer. »
American Horror Story: Roanoke is a web of total insanity, but a bright light shined upon us this week, and his name is Rhett Snow. Here's the setup: Cricket needs to go back to his motel to grab some spirit-banishing materials (sage, etc.) so he calls an Uber. The Uber driver is just going along with his life, when this happens: "Tell me, young man, have you ever heard the term 'Gay for Pay'?" *Stomps on Gas When Flora Runs Out in Front of the Car* "It was just a question!" There's some crazy sh*t that happens on American Horror Story, but I truly didn't expect to hear the phrase "Gay for Pay" this season. Cut to the "real" Rhett Snow, who is being interviewed, just like Real Shelby and Real Matt. Why is he even important? Is it because he's fine as hell? The Real Mvp Coincidentally, Rhett »

The beginning of the end for MTV's Teen Wolf is very close. The final season of supernatural high school drama will begin on Tuesday, November 15 at 9/8c. Despite the fact that the season is just about a month away, very little has been shown about the final season since San Diego Comic Con.
Teen Wolf fans knew that the season will be very Stiles-centric even though actor Dylan O'Brien wasn't available to film much as he is the star of the Maze Runner film franchise. In the latest trailer, Teen Wolf shows how the final season will be all about Stiles without having very much Stiles in it. It turns out the answer is focusing heavily on his relationship with Lydia -- and maybe finally providing some closure on their dynamic.
Deadline reports Kristine Froseth has been cast as Eli, in the Let the Right One In TV show pilot at TNT. From Teen Wolf's Jeff Davis, the vampire drama is based on the novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist. Davis is writing and will executive produce with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes of Hammer Films. Euros Lyn is directing the pilot.TNT says Let the Right One In is an eerie drama about a young boy, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic female vampire, Eli, who appears to be near his age. She settles into the boy's small Vermont town with her mysterious caretaker, just as a series of bizarre »

For fans of The CW’s “Arrowverse,” the fact that Supergirl debuted on CBS in fall 2015 must have seemed like an odd choice. After all, The CW already had two hit shows based on DC Comics in Arrow and The Flash, with a third on the way in the form Legends of Tomorrow. Still, fans turned out to check out this more feminist approach to the male-dominated superhero genre, and the reaction was decidedly mixed throughout season 1.
Sure, star Melissa Benoist – who, like The Flash star Grant Gustin, was best known for a role on Fox’s Glee – emerged as a bright new star, but some were uncertain about the long-term prospects of the series. However, once it was announced that Supergirl would be transitioned on to The CW schedule alongside the other superhero shows co-created by Greg Berlanti, everything just clicked. Supergirl was finally home. »

Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin will be diving into the role of Superman when the CW's Supergirl returns for its second season this fall. Both the actors and the showrunners have stated that the network's take on Superman will be a more traditional version of the Man of Steel, taking cues from Superman: The Animated Series, Lois and Clark, and Richard Donner's Superman, among others. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hoechlin emphasized the importance honouring Superman as a symbol of optimism and hope, despite the temptation to explore the dark or conflicted parts of a character as an actor. “It’s a very hopeful and optimistic show. As an actor, you always love these deep, dark, complicated, conflicted characters — there’s a challenge and that’s something to really dig into. This was something that was fun. It’s pure fun and it’s Superman as I think he was intended to be, »
Back in August it was reported that TNT had placed a pilot order for a TV adaptation of the vampire drama Let the Right One In, and now comes word from Deadline that up and coming actress Kristine Froseth (Rebel in the Rye) has secured the female lead.
Froseth is set to play the charismatic and lonely vampire Eli, who moves to an apartment building in Vermont, striking up a friendship with an equally lonely and tormented 16-year-old boy, Henry, who has no idea what kind of creature he is dealing with.
The pilot has been scripted by Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf), and is based on Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s bestselling novel, which has twice been adapted for the big screen – one in 2008 by director Tomas Alfredson, along with Matt Reeves’ 2010 U.S. remake Let Me In.

Teen Wolf star Michael Johnston takes a dive into a very different part of online culture than afforded by his regular gig with a starring role in Clay Liford's Slash.

Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin's turn as Superman on Supergirl is easily one of the most anticipated new casting announcements for the fall TV season. Supergirl has leaned into that anticipation, having most of their promotional material for season 2 focus on the Man of Steel coming to National City. There have been multiple photos released of Hoechlin in both his Clark Kent and Superman gear but now The CW and Supergirl have released two video clips of Hoechlin's portrayal and everything looks very promising.
