Fans of the DC Extended Universe are eagerly waiting to see The CW’s ‘Superman & Lois’ TV show that will feature Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane. The CW has released a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated series that shows what happens when Kent reveals his true identity to his two sons, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin).
In the recently released trailer of ‘Superman & Lois’, we see how Kent finally decides to tell his sons that he is Superman. But when his kids do not believe him, he lifts a car and levitates. To his surprise, his revelation does not sit too well with his children, who blame him for not being there during their childhood. There are also a few glimpses of other significant characters, including Kent’s father-in-law, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh), Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez).
‘Superman & Lois’ synopsis:
As earlier reported, the forthcoming ‘Superman & Lois’ will follow Kent and Lane’s lives as they navigate their days without revealing their true identities to their sons and neighbors.
“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 and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane, 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,” reads the official synopsis.
Who is Superman and Lois’ son?
In DC Comics, Jon Lane Kent is shown as Superman and Lois Lane’s son from an alternate universe New 52: Future End. As per ‘Superboy Vol. 6’ comics, Jon dies shortly before his fourth birthday. However, a time traveler from the 30th century, Harvest, arrives in Kent and Lane’s present time and retrieves Jon’s body. Harvest uses future technology and chronal energy to revive Jon and took him as his own son. Harvest and Jon both later lead a genocidal campaign against metahumans. After waging war against all the metahumans, Jon encounters his clone, Kon-El, and engaged with him in a duel. Kon-El was about to end Jon’s life but was summoned through time by the Oracle. Jon is then recovered and sent to the Titans as Kon-El, who takes him as they continue time traveling.
Similar to Kon-El, Jon possesses tactile telekinesis. His powers allow him to levitate and manipulate items around him. His telekinetic powers enable him to mimic some of his father’s powers. He can absorb information about things in his vicinity and cloak himself from sight by bending light around himself. However, human-alien hybrid physiology is the prominent weakness that causes him constant pain and agony.
It should be noted here that there is no mention of Jordon anywhere in the DC Comics. Still, the writers behind 'Superman & Lois' are free to explore all the verticles. It is also not revealed if Superman's sons will have any powers in the upcoming show or not. ‘Superman & Lois’ will have a 90-minute premiere on The CW on February 23, 2021.
