The CW has released a brand new trailer for Superman & Lois. As premiered by Entertainment Weekly, the footage gives us our best look yet at the new ArrowVerse series. It centers on Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane, who have returned to Smallville to raise their children. Quiet as that may sound, some superhero happenings are afoot. Have a look.
This show will be picking up after the events of the massive Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. Hoechlin has been playing Superman for several years, getting his start on Supergirl. With Supergirl set to end with its upcoming season, The CW has given Hoechlin the chance to headline a show. Tulloch has also been in the ArrowVerse for some time. The series is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (The Flash) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns.
Here is the synopsis for Superman & Lois.
“In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.”
“The story of Superman has taken place in Metropolis for very long, obviously there was a Smallville series,” said Helbing duringDC FanDome last year. “But I came from a small town in the midwest. And the town that I grew up in had a business leave that sort of affected everybody in the town, and the town started to slowly dry up. It felt very current with recent years after 2008. So we wanted to tell a story where you have the parents after this tragic event happens move back to Smallville and find that it’s easier to raise kids maybe in a place where life isn’t so hectic as it is in Metropolis.”
Superman & Lois premieres February 23 on The CW.
