Superman And Lois Cast: Where You've Seen The Actors Before

The coveted and much-celebrated chance to portray Superman on screen has been passed down for many generations, with the most recent recipient being Tyler Hoechlin (on TV, at least). Years after making his debut as the Man of Steel on the second season of Supergirl, the actor is now leading his own DC Comics-inspired TV shows, along with Elizabeth Tulloch reprising her role a his wife and other exciting talents in the Superman and Lois cast.

The latest series installment of the Arrowverse, premiering on The CW on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, is following in the footsteps of ABC’s hit romantic drama Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, which starred Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher as the titular duo in the 1990s. In addition to focusing on Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s professional lives (a double life for Kryptonian, that is) upon their return to Smallville, Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing’s show will shed light on their more personal struggles. For instance, the couple have two children to look after now named Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alex Garfin).

That actually raises a few questions. For one, who really is the Kents’ new other son, and secondly, why do those young actors look so familiar, too? While we have yet to answer that first puzzle, the second question (and more) will be answered in the following breakdown of what the cast of Superman and Lois have been up to before the highly anticipated series, starting with TV’s latest Last Son of Krypton.

Tyler Hoechlin (Clark Kent/Superman)

Before becoming the Arrowverse’s (main) Superman, Tyler Hoechlin broke out in a much different kind of comic book role as Tom Hanks’ son in Road to Perdition - Sam Mendes’ 2002 adaptation of Max Allan Collins and Richard Piers Rayner’s graphic novel. That was followed by a recurring part on 7th Heaven, playing an alpha lycanthrope on MTV’s darker series reboot of Teen Wolf, and a best-selling author in Fifty Shades Freed in 2018. He also got to live out his baseball background in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!, romanced Alexandra Daddario in Can You Keep a Secret?, and played a deceptively romantic groom in Palm Springs more recently.

Elizabeth Tulloch (Lois Lane)

From her debut in R2-D2: Beneath the Dome - a 2002 mockumentary about the life of the beloved droid outside of Star Wars - to about halfway through her run as a veterinarian turned beastly witch on NBC’s hit adult bedtime story, Grimm, Elizabeth Tulloch was known professionally as Bitsie Tulloch. The actress, who makes up the “better half” of Superman and Lois’ titular romantic duo, was also credited by that nicknamed (passed down from her World War II vet grandfather) in some of her best known film roles, such as in 2008’s Lakeview Terrace, 2012’s silent Best Picture Oscar winner The Artist, and the 2015 biopic Concussion opposite Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu.

Jordan Elsass (Jonathan Kent)

Just like in the comics, Clark and Lois have a son named Jonathan, who may assume his costumed alter ego Superboy at some point on Superman and Lois, on which he is played by Jordan Elsass. The 19-year-old actor first made a name for himself as a writer and star of the web-based sketch comedy series Keepin’ It Weird TV when he was just 13 and went on to star in low budget films and shorts before landing the part of Reese Witherspoon’s son on the Hulu original miniseriesLittle Fires Everywhere. The Austin-born performer is also said to be starring in Amazon Studios’ series adaptation of the YA novel Panic and the upcoming made-for-TV western movie Billy and the Bandit.

Alex Garfin (Jordan Kent)

Unlike the comics, Clark and Lois have a second son (following the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover) named Jordan, whose future could go in all kinds of directions on Superman and Lois, on which he is played by Alex Garfin. The young actor made his feature film debut in the 2010 Angelina Jolie-led action thriller Salt when he was just 5 after playing the first of two different roles he would be cast as on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. His biggest role to date before landing his part on the Arrowverse series would have to be as the voice of Linus in The Peanuts Movie in 2015.

Stacey Farber (Leslie)

While playing Leslie on Superman and Lois is likely her biggest claim to fame among American audiences thus far, Stacey Farber is quite well known in her homeland of Canada. The 33-year-old actress, like many other young aspiring performers from the Great White North, broke out on Degrassi: The Next Generation along with Aubrey Graham, who would grow up to become rapper Drake and cast her and other alumni of teen drama in the video for his 2018 single “I’m Upset.” Farber has also appeared in guest spots on the Emmy-winning sitcom gem Schitt’s Creek and TNT’s series adaptation of Animal Kingdom, to name a few.

Adam Rayner (Morgan Edge)

Taking over the role of corrupt former business CEO Morgan Edge, previously portrayed in the Arrowverse by Adrian Pasdar, is Adam Rayner, who has found success on television both in States and in his homeland of the United Kingdom. The 43-year-old actor is probably best known as the lead of the short-lived FX drama Tyrant, in which he plays a father whose American family gets caught up in his brother’s oppressive political affairs in a fictional Middle Eastern country. Rayner has also appeared in guest spots on series like Doctor Who and had a starring role on TNT’s medical drama Hawthorne led by Jada Pinkett Smith.

Emmanuelle Chriqui (Lana Lang Cushing)

Taking over the role of Lana Lang in the Arrowverse, previously portrayed in a different continuity on Smallville by Kristin Kreuk, is Emmanuelle Chriqui, who has led an eclectic career since the mid-1990s. Even if you do not recognize the 45-year-old actress’ name, you may recognize her face from movies like the 2003 horror flick Wrong Turn or the raunchy 2005 Ryan Reynolds-led comedy Waiting… and TV series like The O.C. or Entourage and its theatrically released sequel in 2015. More recently, Chiriqui poked fun at her origins from Montreal, Quebec, in 2018’s Super Troopers 2 and will also appear in Die in a Gunfight - a modern day crime thriller inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Erik Valdez (Kyle Cushing)

Starring as Lana Lang Cushing’s fire chief husband, Kyle, on Superman and Lois, is Erik Valdez, who spent much of the early days of his career in uncredited nameless TV roles like “Jock” on The O.C., “Frat Boy #2” on CSI: Miami, or two appearances on New Girl as “D. Bag” and “Douchebag #2.” Eventually, by 2012, he would land a starring role on General Hospital, a recurring role on the USA crime drama Graceland, and also appears alongside Giancarlo Esposito in the sixth installment of the popular Far Cry video game franchise.

Inde Navarette (Sarah Cushing)

Starring as Lana Lang Cushing’s teenage daughter, Sarah, on Superman and Lois is Inde Navarette, who first debuted in an 18-minute, Amazon Studios-produced short film Cross Words Together in 2018, a year before before landing a starring role on Denton’s Death Date - a teen comedy series exclusively available on Snapchat. The 23-year-old actress’ truly big break would come when she joined the cast of the hit Netflix original drama 13 Reasons Why in its fourth and final season as Estela, the younger sister of convicted rapist Montgomery “Monty” de la Cruz.

Joselyn Picard (Sophie Cushing)

Starring as Lana Lang Cushing’s younger daughter, Sophie, on Superman and Lois is Joselyn Picard, who is making her first credited role on the CW original series. The young actress, originally born in Barcelona, Spain, had previously appeared in the uncredited role of Adam Irigoyen’s unnamed little sister on Away - the short-lived Netflix original space travel series starring Hilary Swank.

Dylan Walsh (General Sam Lane)

Taking over the role of Lois’ father and devoted army general Sam Lane, previously portrayed on the Arrowverse by Glenn Morshower, on Superman and Lois is Dylan Walsh, who is making his comic book character debut on the CW original series. The 57-year-old actor, originally born in Los Angeles, California, is best known on the big screen for films like 1995’s Michael Crichton novel adaptation Congo or as the titular antagonist of the 2009 remake of The Stepfather and on the small screen from recurring roles on Blue Bloods or Longmire and as plastic surgeon Sean McNamara on Nip/Tuck - a Golden Globe-winning FX drama from creator Ryan Murphy. The year 2021 will also see him play a paranoid author who fears he is being hunted by his own character in the film Alter Ego and you can watch him on the shockingly timely post-apocalyptic web series An Incomplete Education from Radiant Studios’ official website.

I find it interesting how many previously established Arrowverse characters have been recast for Superman and Lois. I suppose they can rely on the Crisis on Infinite Earths to put any further questions about that to rest. Otherwise, based on the talented cast alone, this new series is shaping up to something real super.

Jason has been writing since he was able to pick up a washable marker, with which he wrote his debut illustrated children's story, later transitioning to a short-lived comic book series and (very) amateur filmmaking before finally settling on pursuing a career in writing about movies in lieu of making them. Look for his name in just about any article related to Batman.

Season 2[edit]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

The series was announced in October 2019 and executive produced by Todd Helbing, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter and Geoff Johns with Helbing penning the script for the series.[2] On January 14, 2020, The CW officially ordered Superman & Lois to series.[39] The first season consisted of 15 episodes.[40] The series Everwood and Friday Night Lights served as inspirations for the series, given they were also family dramas. Helbing explained many aspects of Superman & Lois were approached as if it were a feature film, such as the aspect ratio, cinematography, and production design, saying, "We are competing with shows on cable and streamers…we wanted to be able to do that and offer audiences something of equal quality".[1] On March 2, 2021, The CW renewed the series for a second season.[41]

Writing[edit]

In November 2020, series writer Nadria Tucker announced she was fired from the show, claiming it was for "pushing back on racist and sexist storylines." She also claimed she worked on all 15 episodes of the first season, but was only paid for 13 of them.[42][43][44] In a statement, WBTV claimed that "Warner Bros. Television did not exercise its option to extend her [contract] for additional episodes" and that "WBTV was transparent and told her why it was not picking up her option."[45]

Speaking to the lack of greater Arrowverse connections in the first season, Helbing felt there was "this weird set of circumstances where, because of production or timing or COVID, everything in the show that was related to the Arrowverse has gotten pulled out". He added that as development progressed further away from the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover, "it felt like we were opening a can of worms every time we had to explain the connection", though he was hopeful more connections or proper crossovers could occur in the second season.[46]

Casting[edit]

Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch were signed on to reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane from Supergirl.[2] In February 2020, Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin were cast as Clark and Lois' sons Jonathan Kent and Jordan Kent, respectively.[3] In April, Dylan Walsh was cast as Samuel Lane. Walsh replaces Glenn Morshower, who previously recurred in the role on Supergirl.[10]Emmanuelle Chriqui was also cast as Lana Lang,[11] along with Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing.[4] The next month, Wolé Parks was cast as "The Stranger" while Inde Navarrette was cast as Sarah Cushing.[6][5] Additionally, Adam Rayner portrays Morgan Edge, who was previously portrayed by Adrian Pasdar in Supergirl.[8]

In October 2020, Sofia Hasmik and Stacey Farber were cast in the recurring roles of Chrissy Beppo and Leslie Larr, respectively.[13][16] In December 2020, David Ramsey was revealed to be reprising his Arrow role of John Diggle in addition to directing at least one episode in the series.[21] In June 2021, Hasmik was promoted to a series regular for the second season.[12] In August 2021, Taylor Buck, who guest starred in the first season, was promoted to a series regular for the second season.[14] In October 2021, Ian Bohen was cast in a recurring role as Lt. Mitch Anderson for the second season.[47]Jenna Dewan, who previously played Lucy Lane on Supergirl will reprise her role in the second season of Superman & Lois.[48]

Filming[edit]

Production on the pilot was expected to begin on March 23, 2020, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and conclude on May 14.[49] However, on March 13, 2020, plans to shoot a pilot were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to either June or July of that year.[50][51] In late July 2020, Warner Bros. Television planned for the Vancouver-based production to restart in late August.[52] Filming of season 1 began on October 21, 2020 and concluded on July 2, 2021.[53][54][55] The series is filmed on location in Surrey, British Columbia.[56][57] Season 2 began filming on September 15, 2021.[37]

Broadcast[edit]

Superman & Lois premiered on February 23, 2021,[58] with an encore presentation on February 27, on the cable network TNT, followed by the special, Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope, which features behind the scenes footage, interviews with the cast, and special guests discussing the legacy of Superman.[59]CTV Sci-Fi Channel airs the series in Canada.[60] After a delay in production caused by COVID-19, the series went on hiatus after the fifth episode, during which the sixth season of Supergirl took over the series' timeslot.[61] The second season is expected to premiere in early 2022.[38] The entire first season of Superman & Lois became available on HBO Max on September 17, 2021.[62]

Home media[edit]

Season one of Superman & Lois was released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 19, 2021.[62]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 88% based on 42 reviews, with an average rating of 7.8/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Though it may be a bit too grounded for some viewers, Superman & Lois draws strength from unexpected places – without skimping on the action – to carve its own path in a crowded superhero universe."[63] On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 64 out of 100 based on 15 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[64]

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

This article is about the 1990s television series. For other similar titles, see Adventures of Superman. For the 2021 CW television series, see Superman & Lois.

American television series 1993-1997

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman is an American superhero television series based on the DC Comics character Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. It stars Dean Cain as Clark Kent / Superman and Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. The series aired on ABC from September 12, 1993, to June 14, 1997.[1]

Developed for television by Deborah Joy LeVine,[2] the series loosely followed the modern origin of Superman, established by writer John Byrne, in which Clark Kent is the true personality and Superman a disguise. The series focuses on the relationship and romance between Lois and Clark as much as the adventures of Clark's alter-ego, Superman.[3]

Overview[edit]

On May 17, 1966, Jonathan and Martha Kent (Eddie Jones and K. Callan) witness the crash-landing of a small spaceship in Shuster's Field outside of Smallville, Kansas. When they investigate, they discover the baby Kal-El and decide to raise him as their own, naming him Clark Jerome Kent (Dean Cain). Throughout the series, Clark proudly states his mother made his Superman costume for him. Clark often consults his parents either by telephone or in person, after impromptu Superman flights to Smallville, about personal and moral concerns and dilemmas.

The series opens twenty-seven years later, on the day Clark moves to Metropolis after leaving his position as a newspaper editor of Smallville Press and interviews for a job at the Daily Planet under editor Perry White (Lane Smith). Clark becomes acquainted with photographer Jimmy Olsen (Michael Landes in season 1, Justin Whalin thereafter) and gossip columnist Cat Grant (Tracy Scoggins). Soon after being hired, Clark is partnered with star reporter Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher). Clark falls in love with Lois at first sight. When Superman saves Lois from a space shuttle disaster, she instantly becomes infatuated with Clark's alter-ego, and names him Superman.

Superman's first mission interferes with the illegal dealings of Lex Luthor (John Shea), a Metropolis business giant and benefactor. After Luthor's plot was stopped, Superman let Luthor know he is watching him and the two become arch-enemies. However, Clark respects Luthor's life, even surreptitiously using his superpowers to save Lex from bleeding to death. Luthor sees Superman as a worthy opponent; he ultimately discovers his weakness to kryptonite and realizes he has a secret identity, vowing to learn it in hopes of making the hero's life difficult.

Production[edit]

DC Comics president Jenette Kahn had been working for several years to sell the concept of a Superman television series. The series would be different. In 1991 Leslie Moonves and Deborah Joy LeVine helped sell the series to ABC television network with a new title, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.[4]

The series mirrored John Byrne's reboot of Superman, making Clark Kent more assertive and less clumsy. A few episodes directly emphasized that Clark was the unequivocal dominant personality, not Superman. Following this theme, an innovation unique to the series was the depiction of Clark Kent and Superman's traditional hairstyles being reversed—in this series, it is Superman whose hair is slicked back and Clark whose fringe falls more naturally. An additional element that reflected the post-Byrne comics was the portrayal of Lex Luthor (at least initially) as a corrupt corporate tycoon rather than the traditional mad scientist.

Many of the stories in season one involved normal human criminals using advanced and powerful technology or involved in large and dangerous conspiracies—most, if not all, of the Lex Luthor stories of season one. After season one, series creator Deborah Joy LeVine left the show as a producer, and a new production team took over the series. Episode plots gradually shifted from those in which Lois, Clark, and Superman only became involved with criminal elements or dangerous situations through their own initiative to more fantastic plots. The show often centered on comic-style villains who specifically targeted Lois, Superman, or Clark from the beginning, rather than endangering the protagonists reactively when they became threats to other criminal plans. Later plots frequently revolved around villains with special superhuman powers and abilities.

A fifth season of the series was initially announced by ABC. When the network unexpectedly canceled plans for season five, the producers and writers of the show were unprepared. The series ended on a cliffhanger in which Clark and Lois find an infant in their home with a note saying the child belongs to them. This mystery was never solved on the series.

Series history[edit]

Main article: List of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episodes

Season one[edit]

Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain received critical praise for their performances.[5][6]Lane Smith breathed life and humor into the Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White and John Shea received positive reviews for his portrayal of Lex Luthor. Michael Landes portrayed a modern-day Jimmy Olsen and Tracy Scoggins a comedic portrayal of Cat Grant. Lex Luthor's death in the season finale occurred after disagreements between Shea and the producers over the actor's strenuous commute between New York and Los Angeles. No longer a regular cast member, he reappeared once in season two, twice in season three, and once in season four.[7]

Luthor develops an interest in Lois Lane and through most of the first season tries to woo her. Although Lois is receptive to his romantic advances, she remains infatuated with Superman. Lois also develops feelings for Clark, but represses or denies them. Luthor eventually proposes marriage to Lois. Clark, seeing he may lose Lois, attempts to convince her of Luthor's true nature, but fails. In a last-ditch attempt, Clark tells Lois that he is in love with her; she replies that she does not return his feelings but cares for him deeply as a friend. Later, Lois asks Superman if there is any chance of a romance between the two of them. Superman turns her down and Lois accepts Luthor's proposal. Luthor decides to coincide his nuptials with the death of Superman, whom he traps in a kryptonite cage in the wine cellar of Luthor Tower, which also contains the chapel where the wedding will occur. As the wedding approaches, Lois realizes she loves Clark and says no to Lex at the altar.

Clark had been working with Perry and Jimmy to expose Lex and they have enough evidence for the police to interrupt the wedding. Lex eludes the police and jumps from his penthouse office to his apparent death. Superman has escaped the cage and, as Clark, rejoins Lois. However, his powers have been diminished by kryptonite and he cannot stop the villain from falling to the pavement. Newspapers report that Lex's body has been stolen from the morgue and hint he may not be dead. Clark, fearing his unrequited love for Lois may damage their relationship, tells her his profession of love was only out of a desire to protect her from Lex. Lois, who was about to tell Clark that she loves him too, instead keeps it to herself and their relationship remains a friendship.

Season two[edit]

In season two, the character of Cat Grant was dropped, and Michael Landes was replaced with Justin Whalin as Jimmy Olsen. The official reason, according to Landes, was that he looked too similar to Dean Cain.[8] On the show, the explanation is that he has changed with age. Series creator Deborah Joy LeVine and the entire first-season writing team were also dismissed. The new producer, Robert Singer, planned a stronger focus on action;[9] the show also shifted its focus onto the budding romance between Lois and Clark.

Lex Luthor returned in one episode and other villains from the comics, such as The Prankster, Metallo, the Toyman and the criminal group known as Intergang, began to appear. This season also featured the debut of fan-favorite villain Tempus (Lane Davies) and H. G. Wells appeared as a time-traveler. Wells's younger self was played by Terry Kiser, and the older Wells was played by Hamilton Camp.

During the season, Clark and Lois begin to consider dating but are interrupted by Mayson Drake (Farrah Forke), a district attorney who takes a romantic interest in Clark but has a total lack of regard for Superman. Mayson dies as Lois and Clark have their first date. In the next episode, a federal agent named Dan Scardino (Jim Pirri) becomes a rival to Clark for Lois' affections. After initially spurning Dan, Lois decides to date Dan when Clark frequently has to suddenly leave their talks or get-togethers to save other people (as Superman) but offers ridiculous reasons for why he had to suddenly depart. Lois eventually decides she has more feelings for Clark than for Dan, and they begin dating more seriously. In the season finale, Clark comes close to telling Lois his secret but does not, first because of his uncertainty about her reaction, and then interruptions by people plotting to expose his identity to the world. At the end of the final episode, Clark proposes to Lois but Lois' response is left as a cliffhanger for the next season. Season two became a success and garnered higher ratings in its initial airings, ending the season in 58th place.

Season three[edit]

Season three averaged more than 18 million viewers per episode and ranked 44th for the season. In the premiere episode, in responding to Clark's marriage proposal, Lois reveals that she knows Clark's secret identity and expresses concern about how she can trust him when he has kept that secret from her for so long. They spend more time together and after having a few disagreements which then get resolved with them being even closer, she accepts Clark's proposal in the seventh episode, "Ultra Woman." ABC announced that the wedding would occur on Valentine's Day weekend; with ABC sending heart-shaped "wedding invitations" to ABC News staff. A controversy erupted, when ABC presents the viewers with a bogus wedding, with Clark unwittingly married to a clone of Lois.[10] This was the start of a five-part story, in which Lois is kidnapped by Lex Luthor, replaced by a clone, the real Lois suffering from amnesia, and Clark trying to find the real Lois Lane.

In the third-season premiere, Lois has discovered Superman's secret identity. Initially, she resents Clark not telling her. After they separate for a time, Lois dates Patrick Sullivan, an antique dealer who is plotting to kill her in a sacrificial druid ritual, and she and Clark carry out assignments where they either pose as a married couple or are alone together for an entire weekend. Lois finally accepts Clark's engagement ring after acquiring his powers and temporarily becoming a superhero named Ultra Woman. Lois suffers a bout of amnesia and hallucinates their wedding. Once she recovers, Lois and Clark are still engaged when two other Kryptonians come to Earth, one of whom is Clark's wife. They insist Clark go with them to save their world, New Krypton, from domination by an evil tyrant named Lord Nor; Clark leaves Lois, taking her wedding ring to remember her and as a promise to return as quickly as possible. While committed to each other, they both doubt he will ever return.

Season four[edit]

The final season had several two-part episodes. It began with the resolution of a cliffhanger involving a previously unknown colony of Kryptonians. Lois and Clark finally wed in the third episode of the season entitled "Swear To God, This Time We're Not Kidding". The same week, DC Comics released Superman: The Wedding Album, featuring the long-awaited marriage of Lois and Clark. The series ended on a cliffhanger in which Lois and Clark find an infant in Clark's old bassinet, along with a note that claimed the child belonged to them.

During the fourth season, ABC had announced a fifth season of the show; its producers and writers were unprepared when ABC later decided that no new episodes would be produced. The series had weakened in its Sunday 8:00 pm timeslot and had been shifted to 7:00 pm in January, and was moved to Saturdays in the spring.[11] The ratings dropped even further, and the show finished its last season in 104th place, averaging less than 10 million viewers per episode. It was removed from the schedule in May 1997.[11] ABC made up for its commitment to Warner Bros. by ordering thirteen episodes of a Debra Messing drama, Prey.

The fourth season starts with Clark heading toward New Krypton, while the evil tyrant Nor has instead invaded Earth, so Clark returns just as Nor takes over Smallville. He and Lois defeat the tyrant and persuade the New Kryptonians to allow Clark to stay on Earth. After another failed wedding ceremony, Lois and Clark get married. Evil forces continue to assault them, delaying their honeymoon, but eventually, the couple moves into a new home. Throughout the season they strengthen their bond, despite some disagreements and villains trying to destroy them. The newlywed reporters discover that Clark cannot father a child with Lois, but at the end of the last episode, a child mysteriously appears. This mystery was never resolved in the television series; however Brad Buckner, executive producer, and writer for the third and fourth seasons, later revealed the planned story was that the child "was Kryptonian royalty, stashed by his mother to keep him safe from assassins."[12]
