Supergirl is closing down, Superman is coming back. Superman and Lois on the CW is on the way. The network have released the first images of the new suit that Clark Kent / Superman will wear in the form of Tyler Hoechlin.

According to the blurb, this has a “streamlined muscle structure” whatever that is! Hoechlin released a statement to coincide with the big reveal of the new suit:

“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.”

The publicity material says the suit was designed by Laura Jean Shannon and built by her LA based Supersuits team in partnership with Creative Character Engineering. It is a vast improvement on the cosplay suit witjh shoulder clasps for the cape that was used in Supergirl and the CW crossovers. The shows Twitter feed gave full length shots.

Elizabeth Tulloch will star as Lois Lane and the show will be set in the Arrowverse of Greg Berlanti.
