The first trailer for the upcoming superhero television series Superman & Lois has been released. Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch as the Man of Steel love interest Lois Lane. It will be the fifth live-action series to center around Superman and the second show to feature Lois Lane in the lead role alongside the iconic superhero, with the first being Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Hoechlin’s version of the character first appeared in the second season of Supergirl while Tulloch’s Lois Lane first appeared in the fifth annual Arrowverse crossover Elseworlds. Superman & Lois will focus on the couple and their relationship with their two kids while they go up against a mysterious supervillain called ”The Stranger” (Wolé Parks).

The trailer opens with footage of different events in Clark and Lois’ lives such as their wedding and jobs at the Daily Planet. While the footage is shown, Lois explains that their dream of having a family clearly does not look like what they had originally envisioned as they have lost their jobs, Clark’s father has died and they now have two teenagers (Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin) with severe anxiety issues. Lois’ father Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh) asks Clark why he moved back to Smallville, pointing out that they days of a simple life are long gone. The trailer then cuts to a masked villain opening a chest of kryptonite. The music picks up as Clark is seen in the Superman costume flying through space. His sons are then revealed to be finding out his true identity when they are shown to be in disbelief when they discover their father is Superman. The trailer ends with Clark asking Lois if he is a bad father, to which Lois replies that he will be alright, stating that every life is bound to have problems regardless of what they originally envision, even the extraordinary ones.

Superman & Lois will premiere on February 23 on The CW with a pilot episode that is slated to be two-hours long.
