Superman & Lois Will Be Super-Emo, Based On New CW Trailer
The CW series is due to premiere February 23.
The CW has released a more in-depth trailer for the up-and-coming series Superman & Lois, which debuts on February 23. And if the new video is any indication, it will be super-emotional.
Although the newly released season trailer for The CW's Superman & Lois series is barely more than a minute long, chances are pretty good within its minute and 10-second runtime you'll instantly be able to tell if the show is for you. For example, in a voiceover, Lois Lane talks about millennials losing jobs and "teens with severe anxiety" and a young, moody Clark Kent (or Jon Kent?) at a garden party groans to himself that he "really wishes he could get drunk sometimes." Who knows if the series will be this tongue-in-cheek but this trailer definitely has a mood it's going for.
This overall vibe was not present in a , but that clip was meant to showcase the look of Superman's suit. (New stills were .) But ever since the show was , it's been made clear that the show was intended to be and bring something different to the canon--an emphasis on family and the sacrifices being a superhero would really require. The family dynamic is likely to be fairly complicated, as the show will feature an expanded role for Jon Kent--Clark and Lois' son Jon, who was introduced in the comics several years ago and eventually took over the Superboy mantle. Jon was introduced in live-action as a baby during the Crisis On Infinite Earths event.
Developed by Todd Helbing (The Flash) and Greg Berlanti (Dawson's Creek), Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin (The Flash), Elizabeth Tulloch (The Flash), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), and Wolé Parks (The Vampire Diaries).
