Supergirl first look: Tyler Hoechlin suits up as Superman
The Man of Steel has arrived!
Supergirl has released a first look at Tyler Hoechlin in Superman’s iconic red and blue supersuit and cape alongside Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel. The suit was designed by Supergirl costume designer Kiersten Ronning.
As previously reported, the Teen Wolf star will make his way to National City as Clark Kent, a.k.a Superman, in the first two episodes of the new season, visiting his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist). The two will apparently butt heads when it comes to what it means to have superpowers on earth. More on that here.
Hoechlin joins a long list of actors who have suited up as Superman, including George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, and Henry Cavill, among others.
