An official trailer for Superman & Lois has been released! A few weeks ago, The CW put out a teaser trailer that acted as more of a retrospective with little footage, but now we have an idea of the dynamic of the show.
The show will follow the Kent family as they navigate the struggles of parenting their two teenage sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alex Garfin), who they have relocated to Smallville from Metropolis — all of which is happening while they tackle being famous world savers! Although the trailer is only 60 seconds, it packs a lot of punch in that time frame.
Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) can be heard in a voiceover talking about how when they dreamed of having a family, things were much different. “Lost jobs, teens with severe anxiety, parents gone too soon.” Along with footage of the Kent farm, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) finally tells his kids that he’s Superman, and there is also a sneak peek at General Sam Lane (Dylan Walsh). There are also some quick scenes of Superman in action fighting a mysterious figure. Lana Lang also makes an appearance, telling Clark “You’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulders,” to which Clark responds, he wishes he was able to get drunk.
With the more muted and darker tones that inhabit the trailer, it most definitely seems the adaption is going to take on a different life than some of its predecessors (it has serious Man of Steel vibes). Adam Rayner (Morgan Edge), Sofia Hasmik (Chrissy Beppo), Stacey Farber (Leslie Larr), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Lana Lang), and Inde Navarrette (Sarah Cushing) also star.
Check out the trailer below.
Superman & Lois soars onto television screens February 23 at 8 p.m. with a 90-minute series premiere, followed by the Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope special on The CW.
