It's not a great photo. Saw another photo of the actor where I can see him playing Superman more than in that promo photo, but maybe still not some great match for the role.

I like the costume. Some on the streets snaps show it a little better. He looks great!I don't watch the show, though.

YES, he looks abit small.
BUT supermans power is from the sun, not his huge build
AND this guy would be a lot more convincing as Clark Kent, not being so jacked up and all.

See it before I judge.

I had a discussion about this on FB before he was cast. I started watching Supergirl because my daughter wanted to. But i grew to like it. A few really good episodes. Melissa Benoist is committed to the role and plays it sincerely. It's kinda Dawson's creek sometimes though. I thought that if they cast a Superman better than her it would overshadow her but they need someone good to possibly have his own show maybe. Well this doesn't look like he'll overshadow or get his own show. I could be wrong but i don't think i am.

Haven't watched the show. He looks as much like Superman as any other actor I've seen in the part.

I think it's funny that nearly every screen Superman has had big wide eyes, a trim v-tapered build, and a definite youthful appearance, while Schuster's original design was squinty, barrel-chested, and looked about 40. Also, early Superman was kind of a jerk who clearly enjoyed terrifying criminals and duping his co-workers; that aspect of the character has been dropped for boy-scoutish earnestness and soul-searching mopery. Lame.

He also couldn't fly, and there was no Jimmy or Perry. Or Kryptonite.

Things change.

The show can be corny, but it's my favorite of the superhero shows being produced right now. Much more of a classic superhero thing than any of the other shows.

I absolutely love Melissa Benoist. She captures the character perfectly. The plot and show can be silly but she is so committed to the role I always enjoy it.

The ad is fake but the Superman image is taken from an actual set photo.

I don't know. For some reason, that is what popped into my head when I saw him. I guess, it would be more appropriate to call him the Calvin Klein Superman, as he looks like he fell off a CK billboard.

You mean to tell me that Superman's true identity is someone with the initial CK???
