While it was noticeable that there was no content at SDCC for the upcoming second season of Supergirl, we now have what we were really hoping to see…

Yes, alongside Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl, we now have our first look at Tyler Hoechlin as her famous cousin, Superman.

And he looks the part, for sure.

We think he definitely has an Earth 2 (below) look to his outfit, which fits perfectly with the ever expanding CW DC TV Universe.

The new Superman suit was designed by Kiersten Ronning who also designed Supergirl’s outfit. And we love the fresh look while it still has hints of Henry Cavill’s suit in the new DC Cinematic Universe.

Hoechlin will make his debut in Supergirl’s Season 2 premiere on Monday, October 10th on The CW.

UPDATED: Loads of images from filing are here and the suit is really growing on us…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
