CW will display Superman and Lewis To the masses on February 23, with the series’ 90-minute premiere. During the TCA Panel for the New Independent Series, model Todd Helbing talks about how the new indie series brings a new perspective to the comic book and newspaper superhero to the Arrowverse – which may surprise many.
Join Helbing Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch, who played the honorary characters with cast members Inde Navarette, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Adam Rayner, Wolé Parks, Erik Valdez and Sofia Hasmik in the virtual board. From the very beginning of the beta, viewers might notice the tone, feel, and general feel Superman and Lewis Very different from the other series in Arrowverse – but it’s still a long way off.

Helbing said he spoke with fellow executive producer Greg Berlanti about how they wanted to make Superman overall different. “We talked a lot about programs like Everwood And the Friday night lights, He said. He added that they want a family drama with Superman.
“When you do any of these shows, you want to make them a little different,” Helbing said. “We approached this as much as we would like for an advantage – from aspect ratio to cinematography to appearance to home and farm design. We compete with programs on cable and live broadcast … We wanted to be able to do that and offer the audience something of quality Equal. “
Tullock stated that when they first discussed about the show, she and Huichlin were sold out when Hellbing referred to Friday night lights. “It was really real,” she said of the show. “Part of what I hope the audience will respond to in our show is that these two – despite being a dynamic journalist and despite being Superman – can be incredibly relatable and deal with the same issues that regular people do.”
Speaking of it, Hoechlin wears the iconic suit with the letter “S” on his chest, but we also see him more as a Clark. Playing Superman comes with all the superpowers we’re used to seeing, but he’s talked about putting his stamp on Clark’s character. We see him raising two teens with his wife and trying to sail, Tollusch points out, on real-life issues that many people face on a daily basis.
Hoechlin does not have any children himself, but he said he exploited his experiences with his nieces and nephews, as well as his father who was a doctor in the emergency room. He smiled, “I hope Clark is half of my father.”
Speaking of a new spin in Superman’s lore, we see his twins coming by themselves. Jonathan (Elsass) and Jordan (Garfin) add to the ground as the series will show their relationship with the development of sibling and how Clark and Lewis deal with raising teenage boys.
The panel included a lot of talk about details in the pilot including the iconic suit, villain, and Superman’s law questions – which we can’t reveal yet. However, we can say there is a new Parks villain who goes by the name “The Weird”. It will definitely cause a stir. We also learn more about reverse mortgages thanks to Chriqui’s Lana Lang – who also has a history with Clark. We’ll learn more about this in future episodes.
The official logo for Superman and Lewis Is: “Complicating the already daunting task of raising two sons, Clark and Lewis must also care whether their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsace) and Jordan (Alexander Garvin) can inherit their father’s supernatural kryptonian powers as they get older. Back to Smallville to deal with it. Some family business in Kent, Clark and Lewis are re-introduced with Lana Lange (Emmanuel my partner), a local loan employee who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her husband, Fire Chief Kyle Cushing (Eric Valdez). The adults aren’t the only ones who have rediscovered old friendships. In Smallville where the children of Kent get to know Sarah (Andy Navaret) the rebellious daughter of Lana and Kyle. Of course, there is never a dull moment in the life of the superhero, especially with Lewis’ father, General Samuel Lynn (Dylan Walsh) who searches for Superman to defeat the villain or “Save the day at any moment.
