Heading to Sydney, Australia this weekend to participate in the Supanova convention taking place on June 17-18, Tyler Hoechlin sat down for an interview with ImpulseGamer.com to talk about returning for Season 4 of “Superman & Lois,” what it’s like playing the Man of Steel, and the pros and cons of wearing the Superman costume.
Let’s talk Superman! You’ve also become the definitive Superman for a generation… what’s it like playing the Man of Steel?
I don’t know if I’d say that, but kind of you to say. I’ve just really enjoyed playing a character that means so much to so many people from all walks of life all around the world. And one who stands for hope and optimism in the face of great adversity. I recently watched Everything Everywhere All At Once and I absolutely loved what that movie had to say about the different ways we can interpret the world around us, approach the journey of life, and how we can choose to “fight.” Fighting with hope, love, and joy I believe is the greatest way, and that’s what I appreciate about Clark Kent, how he fights.
What was the best part to wearing the Superman costume and also the most challenging?
The best part is seeing the reactions of kids who spot us when we’re filming. Or really anyone who gets such a kick out of it. It could be someone in their 50’s or 60’s that’s been a fan since they were five years old. And the most challenging is really just the long days in the suit that require a lot of physical work like stunts and our big fight sequences . But those are also some of my favorite days on set.
