After unveiling a first look at the Man of Steel’s new supersuit last month as well as a teaser trailer, today The CW released first official Superman & Lois trailer starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the titular characters.
Arrowverse fans will recall the finale episode of the epic “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event teased the sons (plural) of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. The trailer features our first look at Jonathan and Jordan Kent played by Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin. While Jonathan Kent is a character who has appeared in various media since he was first introduced in the mainstream comics back in 2015, the idea of giving the Kents a second son named Jordan Kent is a concept that hasn’t been explored before to the best of my knowledge.
What’s probably the most interesting is that it appears that Jonathan and Jordan are completely unaware of their father’s superhero identity and will only discover it during the first episode. That’s a pretty huge secret to keep from your children. Viewers will have to find out whether or not Jonathan and Jordan will inherit their father’s powers
Superman & Lois is set to debut on The CW on February 23, 2021 with a 2-hour premiere.
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. Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERMAN & LOIS is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (“The Flash”) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns. The series is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
