A look at Tyler Hoechlin’s updated Superman suit was revealed Wednesday. The suit is modernized with an updated cape attachment, sleeker belt and more emboldened Superman emblem. Tyler also appears to be more mature with the slimmer fitting neckline.

Superman’s super suit has been a staple of the character since the beginning. Tyler Hoechlin’s debut as the last son of krypton was the first time Superman, suit and all, appeared on The CW, even though fans waited an entire decade for Smallville’s Clark Kent to put on the tights. Tyler Hoechlin is best recognized for his work on the fan favored MTV series “Teen Wolf,” where he portrayed werewolf Derek Hale, who appeared as a main character in the first four seasons of the show.

Show runners also revealed that the shows premiere date has been pushed back to Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021. It was originally slated for mid-January. The series introductory episode, and every seasonal chapter after that, will be available to stream for free the following day on The CW app.

Tyler Hoechlin has been playing Superman for nearly half a decade. Hoechlin’s interpretation of the Man of Steel first appeared during the season premiere of “Supergirl’s” season two in 2016. Since then, Hoechlin’s Superman has made numerous guest appearances on his cousin’s show and guest starred on a slew of The CW’s annual crossovers.  

Tyler is best known for his work in “Road to Perdition,” “Everybody Wants Some!!” and “Teen Wolf.” Zack Snyder once considered Hoechlin for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but Hoechlin lost out to Ben Affleck. Interestingly enough, Tyler’s real life prom date was Katie Cassidy, who plays Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary/Black Siren in both “Arrow” and “The Flash,” along with other CW series.

Synopsis: Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.”
