I was never a fan of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman suit when he made appearances on Supergirl. The gold shoulder clips holding the cape in place, gaudy and clunky. It just never felt like Supes. Luckily, we have known for some time that the upcoming Superman and Lois will give Clark a new suit.
And it’s here!
While the suit has been spotted from afar and appeared in mostly blurry images, we finally get to see the suit in all its blue, red and yellow glory.
Check out the newly revealed Superman suit below:

The suit is similar to the one worn by Superman in DC Comics’ “New 52” stories as well as Henry Cavill’s in the Zack Snyder films. The logo seems to be a bit bigger and more colorful.
The new suit was designed by Laura Jean Shannon and built by her LA-based Supersuits team in conjunction with Creative Character Engineering, Per the network, it has a classic, timeless vibe that both harkens back to the Superman we all grew up.
“I find that the new suit is representative of the show,” Tyler told The Wrap. “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. I appreciate the opportunity to wear the suit and the responsibility that comes with it. But it’s always interesting when I’m asked how I feel about ‘my new suit,’ because I’ve always felt that the suit doesn’t belong to me; it belongs to everyone that finds some kind of meaning in that suit, in the symbol on the chest. I just happen to be the one wearing it.”
The red undies are still gone and it will probably be sometime before we see them again. Truth be told they never made sense.
Superman and Lois will begin streaming on the CW on February 23.
