Late last month The CW’s first trailer for Superman and Lois finally appeared…but it barely had Superman OR Lois. What it did have was a lot of foggy clouds surrounding the “S” symbol and a few stoic audio quotes. Forget all that now, because they finally put out a REAL trailer.
As we’ve said plenty of times before, Superman and Lois is about the super-couple at a later time in their lives when they’re married with offspring. Those kids were babies the last time we saw them, but the Crisis event in 2019 spread Kryptonian Soap Opera Gamma Rays on them so they’re now teenagers. Jonathan and Jordan are played by Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin respectively, and they’ll be developing powers of their own, though we still don’t know if they’ll be exactly like Superman’s or different. Lana Lang is also part of the cast…played this time by Emmanuelle Chriqui, she works as a loan officer in Smallville and she married a fireman named Kyle (Erik Valdez).
But here’s a twist you didn’t expect…the kids have no idea Clark Kent is Superman! Looks like they find out in the pilot, but….how did he manage to keep it a secret all this time? The trailer also reveals Clark and Lois no longer work at the Daily Planet…so where DO they work? Hopefully not by growing crops on the farm; if you put Superman in a show people expect superheroics, and the reporter jobs were this couple’s main source of getting into trouble.
It’s a little over a month away now: Supeman And Lois will begin its first season February 23 on The CW.
