The CW’s Arrowverse has been one of comic book’s most successful live action run to date on the small screen. Bringing so many of DC’s Finest to the screen, shows like The Flash and Arrow have given fans a modern take on Silver Age characters. During their crossover events across their multitude of shows, the original superhero came into play and is now getting his own series in Superman & Lois. By the looks of the trailer, however, family life for the Man of Steel isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…
Superman & Lois is the latest series to join the Arrowverse and will showcase the Big Blue Boy Scout trying to maintain family life with Lois Lane and their two sons. But, with the first trailer finally hitting the internet, it looks like one of Supes’ sons may not fall in line with his morals. The trailer doesn’t give us much, but it does hint that one of Clark Kent‘s two sons may lean more towards the ways of evil.
The synopsis for the show reads:
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.
Superman & Lois is set to premiere in 2021.
