The CW has revealed the first look at Tyler Hoechlin‘s Superman costume, which is very similar to Supergirl’s while staying true to the iconic character.
In the press room at San Diego Comic Con, Hoechlin had yet to put on the suit but said it would be very surreal when he finally gets to wear it.
One can only imagine what he was thinking when he finally got to wear the costume and really feel like his character.
According to Variety, Heochlin’s costume was designed by Supergirl costume designer Kiersten Ronning.
No one should have any doubts on the former Teen Wolf star portraying Superman now. Mehcad Brooks (James Olsen) joked in the press room that he was not the right fit but seeing him in full Superman gear, you can see he fits the part perfectly.
