Here's our first look at Tyler Hoechlin in the New Superman Costume for The CW's Up-coming Superman and Lois series.
Although it's just a new suit to most, to a lot of fans it is a very important symbol that reflects Superman and his actions. Actor Tyler Hoechlin, who first hit the limelight in the US series Teen Wolf playing heartthrob Werewolf Derek Hale, will be carrying on his more recent role of Superman in the Arrow-Verse in the up-coming Superman and Lois series.
In a recent interview about the new Superman suit we will see in the series, Hoechlin opened up about how he feels about the suit, it seems he really is a great choice for the role as his response is truly warming:
“I find that the new suit is representative of the show, 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.”
The series as Hoechlin has said above will show Superman at different stage of life to what we have seen on screen before, Fatherhood. As well as Elizabeth Tulloch co-headlining the series as Lois Lane, Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin will also co-star as the duo’s sons, Jonathan and Jordan Kent.
“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. 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.”
This show has a lot to live up to for me as I have very fond memories sat watching the 90's Lois and Clark series starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher with my Father as a child and loved every minute. The up-coming Superman and Lois series is due to air on The CW on February 23rd 2021.
