The CW has released a series of poster images promoting the importance of wearing a mask during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The “Real Heroes Wear Masks” promotion sees Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), along with other characters from the DC superhero shows, wearing surgical masks.
Production on these TV shows has been shut down for months due to COVID-19 concerns, with the new “Superman and Lois” TV series reportedly set to begin filming in Vancouver in September. According to the Directors Guild of Canada’s Production List, filming for the entire first season of the show will take place between September 28, 2020 and April 1, 2021. While “Supergirl” will begin filming much later, mostly due to Melissa Benoist’s pregnancy.
Other posters in the “Real Heroes Wear Masks” promotion include The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s White Canary and Beebo, Black Lightning, and Stargirl.
