It’s a daunting task for any actor to play an iconic character, especially if it’s Superman. Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman in The CW’s Supergirl series starring Melissa Benoist, knows what he got himself into, and with the second season premiere out of the way, he opens up about the positive reactions for his performance, via CBR.

“It’s one of those things going into it where I knew that there would always be strong opinions,” said Hoechlin. “He’s a character that been around a long time and everyone has a pre-existing idea of what they want it to be, what it should be to them. So that’s just kind of something you accept. We, again had things that we found interesting and that’s something we committed to and at the end of the day that’s a nice thing as an actor because you know if people enjoy it, then great. They enjoyed your vision of it and what you kind of liked about it as well. If they don’t like it then at least you missed with your own intention. It sucks when you try something that you think maybe isn’t the right thing but maybe someone else will think is right, and then it still misses. Because then you might as well have at least tried it your way.”
