Nice Touch for Supergirl Season 2
When the first promo image was released for Supergirl’s iteration of Superman, people winced. The photo was awful, washed-out, overly dark in parts, and just looked weird. Something about it was just…wrong. Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman on the CW’s newest superhero series, Supergirl, was already in for a drubbing before anyone saw whether he could act. Today, the CW finally released a new promo that shows us just what we’re getting, and it looks pretty promising indeed.
There’s a lot to like in what they’re showcasing here. First is a classic Clark Kent: nerdy and a little awkward as he tries to balance being Superman and Clark. A darn close second is the iconic imagery here: Clark tearing open his shirt to reveal that classic “S” (though you’d think he’d get velcro shirts by this point. He must spend a fortune in buttons), the bound into the sky. It’s great stuff. Not least on my list of “good stuff” is the bright, vivid colors in the suit and his always-endearing optimism. Superman came to help save the day, not sulk and whine in his fake-ass eggs.
While it’s still too soon to go gaga, things are looking promising for the Man and Girl of Steel!
