Check out what Tyler Hoechlin could possibly look like as Superman in ‘Supergirl!’
Since this reveal, fans have been dreaming up ideas of what Superman will look like on the show, which, in this past season, has brought a more modern edge to the classic superhero costumes. Artist BossLogic had his own idea of what Hoechlin would look like in the part, revealing his vision on twitter, saying “Back from Supanova got to finally make the @TylerL_Hoechlin #Superman for @supergirlcbs.” And let me say, his creation does not disappoint, check it out below:

I don’t know about you, but if this is anything like what we will see of Superman in the fall, I am very much on board. This design is the perfect combination of the iconic Superman suit, and the show’s more modern twist on costumes.
Tyler Hoechlin is excited to step into the role, though it is the journalist that interests him more than the hero, with him saying, “I think the fun is going to be finding where Clark Kent is in this world. I’m just excited to find out Clark’s sense of humor.”
When asked to compare his portrayal of Superman to Henry Cavill’s, who has played the hero twice now in Man of Steel and Bataman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Hoechlin declined, saying that he prefers not to compare, because of how iconic the character is:
“I never try to compare and contrast performances because it’s such an iconic character already. Superman is Superman so I’m just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part.”
I, for one, am incredibly excited to see what Hoechlin will bring to the role, and how he will interact with Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl. Though I am sure the costumes will be amazing, hopefully surpassing our every wish.
Season two of Supergirl premieres on Monday, October 17th at 8pm on the CW.
