Superman has officially landed in National City and the first crop of images from Supergirl season 2 showcase the Man of Steel reporting for duty.
Tyler Hoechlin is the latest actor to don the crimson cape as Superman and we couldn’t be more excited to see him make his debut when Supergirl moves to the CW for season 2. Now, thanks to a slew of new images from the superhero series’ premiere episodes, we’re able to get a closer look at Hoechlin as Superman and as the hero’s alter ego, Clark Kent.
There’s a few photos among the group that showcase Hoechlin donning Clark’s signature thick framed black glasses as Kara (Melissa Benoist) shows him around the office. We also get a few shots of the pair suited up and ready to save the city from whatever evil force is threatening to take it down.
In a recent interview wth IGN series producer revealed that that everyone on board felt as though it was the right time to introduce Supergirl’s very famous cousin into her world.
“We felt like we had an interesting, unique take on Superman because the show is viewed through the prism of Supergirl,” explained Kresiberg.
The fact that we’ll be experiencing Superman through Kara’s eyes is something that’s interesting because more often than not, we’re treated to Superman’s story through Superman’s perspective. We’re looking forward to seeing what Kara makes of her estranged cousin when they finally meet, and even more excited to see them team up to battle the forces of evil together after checking out all these great stills!
Supergirl premieres on The CW on Monday, Oct. 10.
