Superman & Lois: Elizabeth Tulloch's #SuperFam Looks a Little Too Real

If you're like us, you've been having a hard time keeping your "Arrowverse" scorecard straight. So The CW has Supergirl and Black Lightning ending with their respective upcoming seasons, a new Batwoman in Javicia Leslie's Ryan Wilder, the pilot for Green Arrow and the Canaries still in limbo, and a backdoor pilot set for Black Lightning character Painkiller (Jordan Calloway) set for the show's final run. Another new addition is the Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch-starring Superman & Lois, which continues chugging along with production (even though they've had their fair of controversy lately) and now Tulloch is sharing another look that feeds into this week's Thanksgiving vibe of family and being (safely) together.

Here's a look at Hoechlin, Jordan Elsass (Jonathan Kent), and Alexander Garfin (Jordan Kent) behind the scenes and showing body language of a real family: two members are distracted by what looks like their phones (don't hold us to that), while the third wants to be anywhere but there at the moment:

The CW's Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent aka Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Jordan Elsass as Jonathan Kent, Alexander Garfin as Jordan Kent, Dylan Walsh as Samuel Lane, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang, Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing, Wolé Parks as the Stranger, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy Beppo, and Stacey Farber as Leslie Larr. Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman & Lois is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (The Flash) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns. The series is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Lee Toland Krieger is directing the pilot from a story by  Berlanti and Helbing, with the teleplay by Helbing.

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.
