Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch reprise their roles as Supes and Lois, picking up following the epic Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. We follow our couple in well-known fictional Kansas town Smallville this time around, as Clarke and Lois attempt to raise teenage boys, struggle with their working lives (are their jobs at The Daily Planet over?), deal with their past (Clarke’s high school sweetheart, Lana Lang – played Emmanuelle Chriqui – pops up here), and, you know, the whole Superman of it all.
Some potentially very exciting stuff on the way for Arrowverse fans, many of whom have had fingers crossed for a Superman series since Arrow kicked off back in 2012. It’s only a 60-second promo, but it should prove a doozy for fans of Hoechlin and Tulloch’s renditions. Visually, there’s even a bit of a Man of Steel vibe with some of the show’s Smallville moments, particularly with that cinematography and colour palette.
Take a look at the trailer below and scroll down to check out the show’s extended synopsis. Superman & Lois will be premiering with a 90-minute first episode on The CW on February 23 and Foxtel Plus in Australia on February 25th.
“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.
Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.”
