The CW unveiled a new image of Lois Lane and Clark Kent from its upcoming series, “Superman & Lois,” set to air on Feb. 23. Elizabeth Tulloch said of her character Lois, “From the very beginning, going back to when she was introduced in 1938, Lois Lane as a character defied society’s expectations of how women should behave. Women at that point were more typically portrayed as demure, but Lois was always opinionated and unapologetic and uncompromising and a career-woman. Part of why she has remained so compelling for so many years is that she’s also vulnerable and fallible, romantic and goofy and a clutz — I just find her really appealing.” Tyler Hoechlin plays the role of Superman. The series is part of the Arrowverse, which includes shows including “The Flash” and “Supergirl.” Check out the new image below.
