“Supergirl’s” Superman has been revealed.

The CW released the first look photo of Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent in his superhero alter-ego garb, standing next to Melissa Benoist’s titular Supergirl.

Hoechlin will make his debut in Central City at the beginning of the show’s second season.

Superman’s appearance has been a hot topic for “Supergirl” since before it began, with producers previously saying his presence will be felt even if he is not physically seen.

No word yet on how “Supergirl” and her famous cousin will fit in at The CW, their new home, which is also where “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” reside. During a crossover episode with “The Flash,” it was revealed that Kara’s “Supergirl” universe is actually not the same one occupied by the rest of the DC superheroes.

“Supergirl” Season 2 premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
