Even Superman has a difficult time raising children.
In a minute-long trailer for The CW’s upcoming series, “Superman & Lois,” the man of steel (played by Tyler Hoechlin) returns as a stressed-out parent raising two sons Jonathan Kent (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan Kent (Alexander Garfin) with his longtime love interest and now wife Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch).
“We all begin as one version of ourself, but as we grow, life changes us,” Hoechlin says in the trailer. “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.”
The series, a spinoff of the network’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event from December 2019, will see Clark Kent and his family in the hero’s hometown of Smallville. It will follow Superman and Lois as they face new challenges of being working parents in today’s society.
Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette, Dylan Walsh and Wolé Parks also star in the series. It is produced by Greg Berlanti, who introduced Hoechlin’s Superman in The CW series “Supergirl.”
On Dec. 9, The CW unveiled a first look image of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman suit, designed by Laura Jean Shannon and brought to life by her team in conjunction with Creative Character Engineering. According to Shannon, the outfit was designed to have muscle structure that is more streamlined, an armored belt and various design lines throughout.
“Superman & Lois” is set to premiere on The CW on Feb. 23. Watch the trailer below.
