It was recently revealed that the newest entry in The CW’s Arrowverse, Superman & Lois, received an early season pickup. With work on the series set to begin soon, character breakdowns for the show have surfaced online.
Superman & Lois will feature Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, reprising their roles from Supergirl. The series will be about the couple dealing with the stress and pressures that come with being working parents. For a look at the character breakdowns for the show check below:
As the series opens, LOIS LANE is still working at the Daily Planet, but CLARK KENT has just been fired following a massive layoff plan at the journal. His father JONATHAN KENT is no longer with them, while his mother MARTHA KENT is living alone on the farm where he grew up in Smallville. They have twins, JONATHAN and JORDAN KENT, who are thirteen and very different — both physically and otherwise. Jonathan is the popular one, an all-star athlete who’s about to enter the Varsity team, while Jordan is more introverted, anxiety prone, and very much into computers and video games. They don’t know who their father really is… yet. And they may or may not have inherited his powers.
Lois’s father GENERAL SAMUEL LANE is in the picture and knows about Clark. LANA LANG is also a big part of the show. She’s a banker, still living in Smallville, with her husband KYLE CUSHING, a firefighter, and their daughters, SARAH, who’s fourteen, and younger SOPHIE who’s eight. They are in a dark place: Kyle is a drunk and Sarah tried to take her own life a year ago.
And yes, Superman has an enemy in this version of the story, who appears as THE STRANGER in the pilot. His true identity is revealed ar the end of the episode…
Based on this information, Superman & Lois will be much darker than many anticipated. Additionally, it’s interesting that Clark and Lois will have twins in the show, especially since Jordan Kent is an entirely original character created for The CW. Fans should expect some casting news to be announced soon as pre-production on the series moves forward.
