Missing the spit curl and not too crazy about them boots. No more worse than the DCEU version.

At least I know THIS version of Supes will fucking SMILE and hopefully have a sense of JOY about him. Unlike the horrible one that Cavill has been asked to portray in the movies.

Not too sure about having Werewolf-man as Supes.

That guy looks way too weird for Superman. His head is a weird shape and I presume he is a Latino with a name like Gomez and he looks Hispanic. Just totally the wrong actor for the role. Cavil gets a lot of shit and I never understand it. He looks perfect for the part, is a decent actor, the only problem is the way he character has been written in the movies he has so far appeared.

I hope the new Superman doesn't look for anything or anyone behind the Winkies

I think it's a bad photo/Photoshop combo that makes it look really weird. Nothing about that picture looks good. They should fire whoever thought it was a good idea to touch it up so much digitally.

I'm glad JJ Abrams can get work as a photographer.

Forgive my ignorance about about how photoshopping works, but how can you all tell that Tyler Hoechlin was photoshopped in that photo? Other than the photo looking super stylized.

Supergirl has probably already started production by now, I would assume they would have been able to shoot a legitimate publicity photo by now with him actually posing in the outfit?

His name is Tyler Hoechlin, which is as far from Latino as you can get.

Yeah, where did you get Gomez from? He looks less "ethnic" I guess then Dean Cain.

Agreed, it's a terrible picture. Makes him look like a toy action figure or something.

I'll never get used to the unitard with boots and a belt aesthetic. Looks cheesy as hell.
He does look like an action figure. A Mexican bootleg knockoff action figure.

I also assumed it was photoshopped since Tyler said last weekend at the SDCC he hadn't even seen the costume other than some design suggestions, and the general nature of the shot screams "Photoshop".

Lol. The report I read called him Taylor Gomez. Great reporting from whatever site that was...can't recall which it actually was.

Well whatever nationality the guy is a lemon headed freak. And I guess they decided muscles for Superman are just not where he needs to be at.

I thought it was Photoshopped as well. Melissa doesn't look the same either.

Better picture?

I too think for all the talk of how Tyler looks off, Melissa looks worse. Just a really bad PS job.

The photo has definitely been doctored in photoshop, likely from two different pictures.

I'll say this for Berlanti and his superhero show costumes, they love releasing terrible still shots. I think it's to lower expectations in the audience for when they see it in action on the air. Pretty much all of their costume publicity shots have been poor to mediocre.

I'll hold judgment until I see this Superman on the air. The darker Superman colors work better on Kara's costume than it does on Superman's actual costume.

My Theory:

Spoiler:
He's really Superboy-Prime and he's getting ready to fuck up all of the CW DC shows' realities.

Spoiler TV obtained some actual production stills of Hoechlin in costume during filming.

You're going to have to actually click on the link to see them. Spoiler TV doesn't allow hot linking of their images.
