Superman & Lois trailer is out and it feels a lot like Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel

The promo video also gives fans a sneak peek at the titular superhero’s first foe

Superman & Lois

The CW has released the first official trailer for Superman & Lois, and while the new series is an extension of the network’s ever-growing Arrowverse, its teaser suggests that it’s going to be a lot different from its sibling shows tone-wise.

Seemingly picking up after the events of the Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, Superman & Lois follows husband and wife Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) as they move from Metropolis to Smallville with their teenage sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin). As revealed in the minute-long trailer, both Clark and Lois lost their jobs at the Daily Planet, but it seems like it isn’t the only reason why they relocated back to Smallville.

“Why did you move the family here? “General Sam Lane (Dylan Walsh) asks Clark in the promo video. “Still looking for a simple life? Because those days were gone, Clark. Long gone.”

Later in the trailer, an anxious Clark is approached by his high school sweetheart Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) at a cookout and she tells him that he looks like he’s “got the weight of the world” on his shoulders.

It’s not clear what bothers Clark but it may have something to do with the mysterious foe in black armor who is seen attacking his sons at the end of the trailer.

Fans are generally thrilled with the Superman & Lois trailer, with many of them commenting that it looks like a trailer for a movie.

When someone tweeted that Superman & Lois appears like it has a bigger budget compared to other Arrowverse series, a fan claimed that the show has funding from HBO Max, adding that the series will be available on the streaming service after it aired on The CW.

Some Twitter users, meanwhile, shared that the trailer’s muted color palette and grounded tone are reminiscent of Zack Snyder’s 2013 movie Man of Steel.

While trailer looks promising overall, a number of fans are still not keeping their hopes high as TV pilots usually look more cinematic than regular TV episodes.

Superman & Lois is set to premiere with a two-hour premiere event on Tuesday, February 23rd at 8 p.m. ET on The CW, which will be followed by a Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope special.
