Earlier this week, Arrowverse fans learned that Superman & Lois would be kicking off its series run with a two-hour premiere event on Tuesday, February 23 (shifting the seventh-season premiere of The Flash to March 2): a 90-minute first episode beginning at 8 pm ET/PT, followed by the half-hour special, Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope, featuring sneak previews and interviews with the cast as well as special guests discussing The Man of Steel's legacy. But you don't have to wait that long to get a look at the series- not when The CW released the first official trailer for the series. In the clip below, we get a better sense of the all-too-real hardships that Tyler Hoechlin's Clark Kent aka Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch's Lois Lane have to go through to save the world and raise two kids in it without screwing them up: Jordan Elsass' Jonathan Kent and Alexander Garfin's Jordan Kent- who are about to learn something new about their Dad. We also get a look at Dylan Walsh's General Samuel Lane offering Clark some sobering advice and Emmanuelle Chriqui's Lana Lang- and at a Clark who wouldn't mind a drink or thirty.
Now here's your look at Superman & Lois, set to leap tall buildings in a single bound on February 23 with a two-hour premiere event:
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.
