Having been confirmed to play Kal-El himself in Supergirl Season 2, we’ve been waiting eagerly for our first glimpse of Tyler Hoechlin in costume. Now, we have our first look, with the new Superman standing tall alongside Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl.
Our first impressions? Not bad. He’s a very CW Superman (chiselled jawline, designer stubble), and the outfit is pretty Man Of Steel-esue, but otherwise, we’re satisfied. It’s not quite the classical look we were expecting – bit then again, we’re not even sure that would work anymore.
The real proof of the pudding will be in the eating, of course. Looking the part is one thing; acting it another. Then again, on this basis the initial signs are good.
Supergirl Season 2 will air on The CW in the US from 10 October 2016, and in the UK on Sky1 later on in the year – read our full interview in issue 122 of SciFiNow.
