‘Supergirl’ Unveils First Look At Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman Costume

Supergirl” has released the first look at Tyler Hoechlin in costume as Superman ahead of the star’s debut in Season 2.

Hoechlin will appear as Clark Kent/Kal-El in the “Supergirl” Season 2 premiere, where the Man of Steel will visit his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) in National City. This version of the iconic costume was designed by “Supergirl” costume designer Kiersten Ronning, and shares similarities with the big screen iteration of the Superman costume worn by Henry Cavill in the films “Man of Steel” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” once again eschewing the iconic hero’s red shorts for a more streamlined design.

At the recent Comic-Con panel for “Supergirl,” executive producer Sarah Schechter teased some conflict between the Girl of Steel and her superpowered cousin. “I think that Clark has a very different experience of what it means to have superpowers on Earth,” Schechter said. “He was raised with them, he has certain values so there’s some real head butting and philosophical approaches that are different and we’ll get into all that.”
