It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Superman! During DC FanDome, details about the upcoming Superman & Lois CW series were finally released.
During the panel for the series, the showrunner Todd Helbing reveals the show will focus on the events after Crisis on Infinite Earths. It will also be set in Smallville. Superman’s alter ego Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) will have to find a way to be working parents and save the world in their spare time. There’s also a love triangle.
Helbing also mentions Tyler Hoechlin getting a Superman suit upgrade. He states “We have a fresh slate. There’s going to be a really badass Superman suit in this show that we’re pretty excited about.”
Not only is Helbing the series creator, but he is serving as executive producer. Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schechter will join him as executive producers for the series. Superman & Lois will debut on The CW in January 2021.
