Superman & Lois Gives The Man Of Steel A Brand-New Look
Check out what Tyler Hoechlin will look like as Superman on the new CW show.
Earlier this year--like what feels centuries ago before COVID earlier--The CW to follow the adventures of The Man of Steel and the Daily Planet's star reporter. Earlier in 2020, the series synopsis indicated the show will star Tyler Coechlin as Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, both reprising their roles from Supergirl, as "they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society."
A lot of time has passed since the above news, and thankfully, the show has still been moving along in spite of the tumultuous year 2020 has proven to be. In a recent statement provided by The CW, Hoechlin and costume designer Laura Jean Shannon share some new details about Superman's suit--in other words, the show is very much still a reality.
Shannon says the suit focuses "on a new neckline and cape to maximize the billowing and movement we all love to see in the books and films that have defined this character for generations. A streamlined muscle structure and updated paint job combined with some dynamic design lines and a sculpted armored belt all took his established custom fabric into a new direction."
"It's always interesting when I'm asked how I feel about 'my new suits,' because I've always felt that the suit doesn’t belong to me," said Hoechlin. "It belongs to everyone that finds some kind of meaning in that suit, in the symbol on the chest. I just happen to be the one wearing it."
According to TV Guide, Superman and Lois will run for 13 episodes starting Feb. 28 at 9 PM ET, immediately following the Season 7 premiere of The Flash.
