Superman and Lois star Tyler Hoechlin explained the reasoning behind his new super suit.
Tyler Hoechlin made his debut as The CW’s Superman back on Supergirl, but now the star is getting his own series that will premiere in a few weeks. Many DC fans now have high hopes for Superman and Lois after the first trailer debuted and revealed a more cinematic look. Part of that cinematic look has to do with the new Superman suit Hoechlin will be sporting in The CW series.
While promoting Superman and Lois ahead of its February 23 debut at a Television Critics Association panel, Tyler Hoechlin talked a bit about the new suit he will be wearing and explained why the change was made:
“Originally I was supposed to do this for two episodes. That’s really what the first meeting was, you know, we’re going to do this as a cool fun thing for the fans and so that suit was meant for that. And then it turned into more and more. And obviously now it is a new, like I said, it’s, we’re telling a new story, it’s a different time in his life, so it would only make sense the suit would change to reflect that. And it’s just something meant to withstand a longer run. For me and how I play the character, it’s really been really informed by what Todd and the writing team have been doing and Greg Berlanti and the producing team down in LA and then also everybody here. It’s, you know, for me, I find a lot of times, as like with the character, it’s much help, more helpful to figure out what the people around you are making you do, as opposed to just what you are kind of creating on your own.”
