First Look At Superman Suit From ‘Superman & Lois’

One of the most anticipated premieres in 2021 has to be Superman & Lois. While we’ll have to wait until February 23rd for that, we are getting a new look at the Man of Steel from the upcoming series. See for yourself in the image above.

Once again Warner Bros. Television turned to the great Laura Jean Shannon and the Supersuits team. The suit definitely has a classic design but more of a modern vibe. Here’s what Shannon said about the suit: “We got Superman into some custom athletic inspired Super-Boots as a ‘jumping off point’ and focused on a new neckline and cape to maximize the billowing and movement we all love to see in the books and films that have defined this character for generations. A streamlined muscle structure and updated paint job combined with some dynamic design lines and a sculpted armored belt all took his established custom fabric into a new direction to solidify the new look for Superman in Superman & Lois.”

Superman actor Tyler Hoechlin clearly understands what wearing this suit means. He said: “I find that the new suit is representative of the show. 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. I come from the world of baseball and a line of coaches that always preached that the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the one on the back. Because when you wear that jersey, it represents not only you, but your entire team, and everyone that has ever worn that jersey that came before you. So when I wear the suit, that’s what it means to me. It represents everything that Superman stands for and has stood for, for almost a century now. And I look forward to carrying on that tradition.”

Keep an eye out for an official look at Lois Lane later in the week. Keep checking back for our continued coverage of the series.
