Yay or Nay? First Look at Tyler Hoechlin's Newest Superman in The CW

The CW officially revealed Tyler Hoechlin's Superman and his shiny new suit for the upcoming "Superman & Lois" series.

In the show's official Twitter account, the 33-year-old actor was seen donning an updated costume featuring textured near-mesh but staying true to the superhero's costume.

Aside from this, it also featured Superman's red cape, which is connected at the base of his suit's nape part. In comparison , Henry Cavill's costume was fastened right above the emblem.

"Carrying on the symbol. #SupermanAndLois premieres Tuesday, February 23! Stream next day free only on The CW," the post read alongside a photo of Hoechlin wearing his Kryptonian outfit.

Fans React

Although Hoechlin's suit is far different from Cavill's "Man of Steel," fans can't help but express their excitement on the comment section.

"Excited for it! I hope they show off his powers more and not make him look so weak," one wrote.

second user complimented The CW's take on the latest "Superman" series: "It's super similar to his rebirth costume. I'm here for it. I have to say; I like it better than the man of steel suit."

Unfortunately, not all were thrilled with the superhero's shiny suit after one fan mentioned that it looks less realistic: "This looks like a fan made attempt to make the man of steel costume more "comic book."
