Superman & Lois Preview: A Father-in-Law Moment Worse Than Kryptonite

With The CW's Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch-starring Superman & Lois taking flight in only a matter of hours, the network is offering a sneak preview of Hoechlin's Superman in consultation with Dylan Walsh's General Samuel Lane. Some instances of sabotage on a very deadly level are showing up, causing concern for both The Man of Steel and General Lane. But as you can tell by the last name, Clark Kent's super alter-ego and the military man share another thing in common: Tulloch's Lois Lane. So for a look at a painfully awkward exchange between son-in-law and father-in-law, check out the clip below- where you can cut the tension and uneasiness with heat vision set on medium.

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.
