The CW recently made the unprecedented move of ordering Superman & Lois to series before a pilot has even been shot, and work is clearly well underway on the show based on this leaked piece of concept art. As you can see below, it shows a new costume for Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel which appears to have been inspired, to some extent, by the “Rebirth” era of comic books.
It’s now a lot brighter and not quite so similar in nature to the suit worn by Supergirl.
Look closely and you’ll notice that Keith Lau appears to be responsible for this new design, and the concept artist has also come up with the costumes for characters like Green Arrow, Black Canary, Spartan, and the Anti-Monitor. Unfortunately, the hero’s underwear hasn’t found its way outside of his costume!
Many fans were hoping that would be the case in this spinoff, but a bigger talking point after Crisis on Infinite Earths is the fact that Clark now has TWO sons as a result of Earth-Prime being created. There’s speculation that one of them will be Damian Wayne, but we’ll obviously have to wait and see.
What are your thoughts on this version of Superman’s suit?
Looks kinda like Rebirth but honestly just use Routh’s suit pic.twitter.com/hCwqnEc427
