Stars Reveal Details on “Superman & Lois”

Superman & Lois

TVline.com sat in on a Television Critics Association panel involving many of the actors and creative people involved in The CW’s upcoming new TV series “Superman & Lois”. Here are a few details from the panel…

In regards to the look of the series, showrunner Todd Helbing, knowning they’re competing with big-budget streaming services, says, “We wanted to be able to offer the audience something of equal quality.”

For fans concerned that Clark and Lois having teen sons means we will get a lot of teen angst, Alexander Garfin says that “Superman & Lois” takes a “mature” approach to its younger set, adding, “I was so happy to see intelligence written into the characters. We get into fights, and we can hate each other sometimes, but it’s built on a very deep and wide foundation of love.” This bond will prove particularly important as the boys begin to discover what they may (or may not) have inherited from their father.

The inclusion of Lana Lang has many fans worried about a love triangle between Clark, Lois and Lane. However, Emmanuelle Chriqui explains, “Yes, they dated in high school, but besides that they’ve known each other since kindergarten. Lana certainly treats Clark as one of her closest friends, one of the people who knows her the best. There’s a lot of history there, but in this incarnation of the world, it’s not just based on their romance. It’s a very rich, long history.”

Wolé Parks has been cast in the role known only as “The Stranger,” but explains that it is someone we know from the comic books. “We’ve seen this character a lot before, but the difference between this one and the other ones is his backstory. I’m a comic nerd, but as far as I’m aware, we’ve never covered this kind of stuff on TV before. He’s not just a bad guy for bad guy’s sake. There’s a reason why he’s doing these things. Every bad guy is the hero of his own story.”

Great image of Tyler’s Superman! Definitely one of the best photos of his Superman. 🙂
I have a few theories on who the stranger could be, but I don’t want to say in case I might be right and spoil it for others. I am also staying away from any potential spoilers myself, since I hate to be spoiled when it comes to new shows and movies. It happened to me once when I went to see avengers endgame. Someone in the theater said out loud what happens to one of the main characters 30 minutes before it happened.

The suit looks good, but they went overboard on the fake muscles, lol.
His chest and shoulders look twice as big as they do when he’s wearing a normal shirt.

The suit design is fine, but that muscle suit has eaten up poor Tyler. More interesting to me is that it’s basically the Smallville S11 design with a few minor changes (the belt is red instead of yellow, the neckline is higher and the S smaller), which subconsciously spins this as a soft-sequel to that show for the generation that grew up with that show. It’s kind of clever. As for the “details”, I don’t put any stock in them. It’s easy to say “oh no, don’t be worried, it’s not what you think” when there’s so little information countering… Read more »

I think it’s mostly the neckline and small Super symbol that makes the chest and shoulders look in question. That’s not to say that there isn’t a muscle suit of some kind. But also Tyler has been working out. Compared to how he looked previously on Supergirl and the crossovers, his arms are more muscular and bigger. If he is wearing a muscle suit, it’s probably to fill in the gaps on muscles he couldn’t build on. I would say muscle suits are used a lot for superhero shows and movies. Affleck’s Bat suit clearly had padding in Justice Leage.… Read more »

I forgot to add a source as to why I said Henry wore a muscle suit in JL, so here it is.

It’s around the end of the video. They said it’s a metallic undersuit. And from the look of it in the video, it has fake muscles.

Correction, chrome undersuit. Not metallic undersuit. Though I guess chrome is a kind of metallic.
