Now this is more like it. Three weeks after offering fans a decidedly casual glimpse of newly-minted Lois Lane Elizabeth Tulloch alongside returning Man of Steel Tyler Hoechlin, The CW has released a far more formal portrait of the iconic pair, with the Fortress of Solitude as a backdrop.

Three decades ago, Supergirl made moviegoers believe that a woman could fly. After Superman III premiered to less-than-stellar box-office returns, super-producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind decided to expand the franchise by building the first big-screen blockbuster centered around a female hero.
