Superman’s appearance on CW’s Supergirl has created quite a buzz and has been well received by fans and critics. This has led many to wonder if a standalone Superman show could be possible in the Kreisberg and Berlanti universe of DC universe TV shows. When asked by Comicbook.com about this, Andrew Kreisberg stated:

“I’m not going to sit here and say that there’s never going to be a world in which there is a Superman TV show and that Tyler’s going to star in it, I don’t know what the future holds. But right now, that’s not our focus. Right now, we’re working on Supergirl, which is the flagship, and working on a way for Tyler to reprise the role is really what our focus is on Supergirl right now.”

Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman on Supergirl, also had something to say about the idea.

“The role of Superman, coming into this, for me, from the very beginning, was to support her, which lends itself to being a supporting character, there was never an intention for this to be about him. It’s always about her. It’s called Supergirl, and Melissa has done such a great job. For him, it’s always about building her up and being there to impart wisdom when he can and support her when he can, but in no way try to make her feel like she’s not capable of doing anything that he could do.”

Supergirl airs Monday nights at 8pm on the CW.
