Warner Bros. and The CW are staging a (super) family reunion.
Ahead of Supergirl‘s return on October 10 – when the Melissa Benoist-fronted series will complete the jump from CBS to The CW, joining DC brethren Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash – we now have our first look at Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) suited and booted as the Man of Steel.
Writing his name in the history books, Hoechlin now joins a very select roster of actors that have donned the famous cape, including George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh and, of course, Henry Cavill, who returns next year with Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

In terms of Supergirl, it’s understood that Hoechlin and Benoist will lock horns regarding their superhuman abilities – what’s a family union without some good ol’ squabbling? – though it remains to be seen how many episodes Supes will feature in.
With Hoechlin’s Last Son of Krypton in tow, Supergirl season 2 is penciled in for a premiere on Monday, October 10. If you’ve yet to check in with Benoist and the rest of National City, you’re in luck: The CW is re-running the entire first season so you can catch up.
