The CW has officially unveiled the first trailer of the newcomer in the Arrowverse Superman & Lois. The trailer, with the title, Family Crest, highlights the importance of family. The Arrowverse first started in 2012 with the series Arrow and has grown since then. The latest series of the expanding universe brings Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman, along with Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane. The two characters already played an important role in Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
Before the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, Hoechlin already recurred on Supergirl. The newly released trailer will be Hoechlin’s time for Lois and Clark Kent to have their own TV show.
Superman & Lois will be following the couple after the surprise twist that their infant son has become two teenage boys, as a result of the events from Crisis. After a tragic event that occurs on Metropolis, Clark and Lois decided to move to Smallville. The two characters highlight parenthood, alongside their other responsibilities as a superhero and well-known journalist. The series will depict Clark in a fresh take, as the series shows his struggles of being a parent.
The Superman & Lois trailer gave fans an official peek at the teenage sons of Clark and Lois. The two boys are Jonathan Kent (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan Kent (Alexander Garfin). Jonathan is a kind and well-groomed boy, while Jordan is intelligent but prone to social anxiety.
The trailer emphasizes the importance of family. The series will showcase the Clark Kent that many fans know and love, but they will also see how his family drives him forward.
The first official trailer for the series does not spoil or provide any clarity on the show’s plot but offers a conceptual take. The trailer provides Clark’s voiceover, regarding the themes of change and growth, as it seemingly serves as the central theme of the show. The trailer also showed how Clark and Lois’ new circumstances will shape them.
Superman & Lois is scheduled for release on February 23, 2021, on the CW Network.
