Superman And Lois is still a few weeks away, but man are we excited! I actually recently had the opportunity to check out the pilot for myself and loved it! The show is a whole lot of fun and perfectly captures the essence of Superman. Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch really bring Clarke and Lois to life and now we have some new casting news to share. We’ll be getting an appearance from Kal-El’s Kryptonian father Jor-El. Comicbook.com was the first to report this and I want to thank them for delivering the good news! They have shared with us that Angus Macfayden is Jor-El in Superman And Lois!
This is pretty exciting news, guys! It’s not the most surprising of news, it’s common for Superman to be able to communicate with his dead father in the Fortress Of Solitude. The CW has given a character description that you can read below.
“Jor-El is Clark Kent’s Kryptonian father. Though he died along with Krypton, his brilliant essence still exists within the arctic Fortress of Solitude to provide guidance when his son seeks help.”
The character will be making his debut in the second episode of the series which will be premiering on March 2.
In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures, and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.
Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”).
Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when both a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) and impassioned self-made mogul Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner, “Tyrant”) enter their lives.
Superman And Lois will debut with its special 2-hour series premiere on February 23!
