Superman & Lois, the upcoming DCTV series set in the CW's Arrowverse, is set to put an interesting twist on the Man of Steel's traditional story. In this new show, Clark Kent is well into his career as Superman, having been in the superhero game for about 20 years. He's married to Lois Lane and together, they have two teenage sons, Jonathan and Jordan.
The program is expected to take Clark back to his roots of Smallville, Kansas, and give him a brand new super-suit, which serves as an upgrade to the version he's worn in past Arrowverse episodes.
Production of the show has been going strong in Vancouver since late October, as evidenced by several phots captured from the set.
Superman & Lois star and Lois Lane herself, Bitsie Tulloch, shared images taken from the set of the upcoming Arrowverse series on Instagram.
First up, we have Tyler Hoechlin as Clark:
There's also a close-up shot of a copy of The Daily Planet, the newspaper at which Clark and Lois are famously employed. The headline "Superman Saves Family From Burning Building" is clearly visible:
And then there are two additional images from Tulloch's Instagram page showing the actress with Jordan Elass and Alexander Garfin, who play her sons on the series:
WHAT THIS MEANS
With Supergirl ending after six seasons this spring, Clark Kent will soon find himself the only Kryptonian hero headlining their own show on The CW. Superman & Lois has a lot of potential ground they can cover without stepping on the toes of anything that Supergirl has done.
That being said, Kara Zor-El has gone up against a number of her cousin's villains on her own show, but that will just force the writers to get more creative. Besides, if for some reason the producers wanted to bring in an already-used villain, they can come up with a new take on them because of the recent crossover event "Crisis on Infinite Earths," which ended up resetting this universe and starting fresh in a number of ways.
At the end of the day, as long as Clark and Lois hold true to their famous ideals, ethics, and values and Superman continues to act as a beacon of hope (both for the characters in the show and for those watching at home), fans should be in for quite the treat when Superman & Lois premieres on The CW on February 23, 2021.
