Earlier this week, there were reports of a Superman TV series starring Tyler Hoechlin being developed for The CW. A FandomWire report claimed that the upcoming Elseworlds crossover would serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential Superman series. But, now, it’s confirmed that there’s no such TV series in the pipeline.
Heroic Hollywood’s Editor-in-chief Umberto Gonzalez has learned that rumors of a Superman TV series in the making are inaccurate. However, it is confirmed that The CW’s Elseworlds crossover will serve as a launching pad for Ruby Rose’s new Batwoman show.
“No, Superman is not getting his own TV show on the CW. That fandomwire report is inaccurate. He will appear on Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover & that’s it. Not a backdoor pilot attempt either,” Gonzalez’s tweet read.
Notably, The CW’s various DC Comics television series team up for a crossover event every year. Well, this year, the highly anticipated DC’s crossover Elseworlds will see the coming together of Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), along with guest cameos by Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane, and Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman.
Interestingly, fans will get to see their favorite DC superhero Superman wearing a black and silver suit and not the traditional red and blue costume at some point in Elseworlds. As per the comicbook storyline, the Man of Steel donned the darker look after he died at the hands of Doomsday in the Death of Superman and then came back to life.
Arrow star Stephen Amell recently shared a picture of Tyler Hoechlin wearing the black costume along with a black cape on Twitter. The picture shows Amell standing alongside Hoechlin and The Flash actor Grant Gustin. You can check out the picture below.
The Elseworlds crossover event will begin with The Flash on Sunday, Dec. 9, and then continue with Arrow on Monday, Dec. 10, and conclude with Supergirl on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
No, SUPERMAN is not getting his own TV show on the CW. That fandomwire report is inaccurate. He will appear on Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover & that's it. Not a backdoor pilot attempt either.
