Superman & Lois Reveals Tyler Hoechlin’s New Suit

No Comments

Superman has himself a new suit. As revealed by the official Superman & Lois Twitter account, Tyler Hoechlin will be rocking a new look as the Man of Steel when the show debuts later this year. Safe to say, it is quite the upgrade. Have a look. 

“I find that the new suit is representative of the show,” Hoechlin said. “Just as this suit is unique and set apart from the ones that preceded it, the story we’re telling about Clark/Superman at this point in his life is unique and something we’ve never seen before. I appreciate the opportunity to wear the suit and the responsibility that comes with it.


“But it’s always interesting when I’m asked how I feel about ‘my new suit,’ because I’ve always felt that the suit doesn’t belong to me; it belongs to everyone that finds some kind of meaning in that suit, in the symbol on the chest,” he added. “I just happen to be the one wearing it. I come from the world of baseball and a line of coaches that always preached that the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the one on the back.”


“Because when you wear that jersey, it represents not only you, but your entire team, and everyone that has ever worn that jersey that came before you. So when I wear the suit, that’s what it means to me. It represents everything that Superman stands for and has stood for, for almost a century now. And I look forward to carrying on that tradition,” Hoechlin concluded. 


Hoechlin has been playing Superman on The CW for several years now. Originally just as a guest star on Supergirl. Now, he’s getting a chance to be the co-lead of a new series alongside Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane. 


Laura Jean Shannon built the suit. It was previously revealed during DC FanDome that Hoechlin would be getting a new suit for the show. Shannon was the one tasked with bringing the new look to life. 


“We got Superman into some custom athletic inspired Super-Boots as a ‘jumping-off point’ and focused 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,” Shannon said. “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 to solidify the new look for Superman in Superman & Lois.


Here is the synopsis for Superman & Lois


“In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.” 


Superman & Lois premieres on February 23.
