Superman & Lois Promo Earns Stephen Amell's Arrowverse Approval

Earlier today, Arrowverse fans were treated to a new look at The CW's Superman & Lois ahead of its two-hour series premiere on Tuesday, February 23 (including the special Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope). In "All Right Now," the all-too-real hardships that Tyler Hoechlin's Clark Kent aka Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch's Lois Lane are going through to save the world and raise two kids (Jordan Elsass' Jonathan Kent and  Alexander Garfin's Jordan Kent) were on full display. As happy as we're sure Hoechlin and Tulloch would be to know that the new trailer has us excited for later this month, we won't be insulted if they're more impressed hearing from Arrow and Heels star Stephen Amell. Taking to Twitter earlier today, Amell gave the trailer and what he's seen of the series so far the Arrowverse seal of approval. When someone's fronted a show that served as the foundational basis for a concept like an "Arrowverse," their "thumbs up" carries a lot of weight (and no, we will never refer to it as "The CWverse" so just stop it).

First, here's a look at Tulloch's tweet where she shares a look at the newest trailer in the widescreen format it was filmed in- and it definitely makes a difference when it comes to the epic feel and scope of the series:

And here's a look at Amell's retweet of Tulloch's post along with some serious words of approval:

Here's your look at the newest 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.
