Superman & Lois: Arrowverse Series Introduces Hopeful Jonathan Kent

With The CW's Tyler Hoechlin (Superman aka Clark Kent) and Elizabeth Tulloch (Lois Lane)-starring Superman & Lois set to leap tall buildings in a single bound starting with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, February 23 (including the special Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope), the network is continuing its character key art profile posters series. Following up on a look at Superman aka Clark Kent (Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Tulloch), this time we get a look at one of the two Kent kids- Jordan Elsass's Jonathan Kent, described as clean-cut, modest, and kind-hearted, with an "aw-shucks" attitude that somehow doesn't seem as dated as one would think.

Now here's your look at the most recent preview for The CW's Superman & Lois, "All Right Now":

In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world's most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, "Teen Wolf") and comic books' most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, "Grimm"), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today's society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, "Little Fires Everywhere") and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, "The Peanuts Movie") could inherit their father's Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.

Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, "Entourage"), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark's first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, "Graceland"). The adults aren't the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle's rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, "Wander Darkly"). Of course, there's never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois' father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, "Nip/Tuck") looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment's notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois' return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, "All American") enters their lives.
