Please Enjoy These Photos of Tyler Hoechlin Stripping Down as Superman

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Tyler Hoechlin as Superman!

The actor was seen rushing in to save the day as the Man of Steel as he continued to shoot scenes for  Supergirl in Vancouver, Canada on Monday (Aug. 1, 2016). Reenacting one of the caped hero’s most iconic moves, Hoechlin was seen ripping off Clark Kent’s street clothes to reveal Superman’s red-and-blue costume underneath.

Excuse us while we swoon.

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 on TV since Tom Welling’s portrayal of the superhero 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.”

Supergirl is slated to return October 10 on The CW. For now, fans can ogle over Hoechlin’s bulge bulging muscles in the gallery — below.
