Tyler Hoechlin as Superman Leads Today’s Star Sightings
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Tyler Hoechlin in super tight spandex!
The actor was seen flaunting his bulging muscles in Superman’s iconic costume while on the set of Supergirl in Vancouver, Canada on Friday (July 29, 2016). Hoechlin, 28, first wore a black poncho over this crime-fighting suit before unveiling it for the cameras.
As previously reported, Hoechlin will appear on the upcoming season of The CW series alongside Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl, making him the first man to take on the role of Clark Kent’s superhero persona on TV since Tom Welling’s portrayal of the Man of Steel on Smallville.
“I think that Clark has a very different experience of what it means to have superpowers on Earth,” executive producer Sarah Schechter said at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month. “He was raised with them, he has certain values so there’s some real head-butting and philosophical approaches that are different and we’ll get into all that.”
