A new trailer for the CW series “Superman & Lois” has arrived with a teaser about the Man of Steel facing a new reality as a superhero and a father…
The Man of Steel will be facing a whole new kind of challenge when “Superman & Lois” debuts on the CW on Feb. 23.
The new series from uber-producer Greg Berlanti will showcase Superman in a much different light than any previous show as Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and his wife Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) leave Metropolis to return to Smallville in order to raise their family.
Not only is Superman a family man now but he’s actually raising two teenage sons — Jonathan Kent (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan Kent (Alexander Garfin).
“Superman & Lois” was born from the characters who first appeared on other CW series such as “Supergirl” and “The Flash,” with this particular series spinning off after the events of “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” which was the major crossover event in 2019.
In the new trailer, Superman — like always — speaks of hope in the face of adversity as he seeks to balance his duties as the world’s greatest hero while also trying to become the best husband and father on the planet as well.
“We all begin as one version of ourself, but as we grow, life changes us. Every moment shaping our character, shifting our priorities, stretching every fiber of our being until we think we’ve lost ourselves to the stress of it all. But that’s not true because under the torn fibers is a strong person, forged like steel, with the courage to fight for those we love.”
“Superman & Lois” comes along at a time of transition for the CW as the network prepares to move on from a couple of high profile series. “Arrow” came to an end in 2019 and two more shows — “Supergirl” and “Black Lightning” — will finish up with final seasons in 2021. While established series such as “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” are still going strong, the CW is beginning to develop more and more series set in the DC Universe with lesser known characters.
That won’t be the case for “Superman & Lois” obviously as the network turns to an old favorite after “Smallville” was a popular series for 10 total seasons running from 2001 to 2011.
Check out the new trailer and get ready for “Superman & Lois” to debut on Feb. 23 on the CW.
