The CW just released the above image of Tyler Hoechlin as Superman as he\’ll appear in the second season of Supergirl this fall.
It\’s definitely a modern Superman costume with some inspiration coming from the 2011 New 52 redesign in the form of the belt and the lack of red briefs. The golden clasps holding the cape definitely are strange, but it looks good for a television Superman costume.
Supergirl becomes part of The CW DC universe this October when the second season premieres on the network. The CW will also be running the entire first season so people can catch up before Superman arrives on the show.
