We have seen many incredible actors take up the mantle of the Man of Steel over the decades, on film and TV, and now the cape passes to Tyler Hoechlin. Tyler who first donned the Superman suit in 2016 as a guest star on Supergirl and in the Arrowverse crossovers is the latest Clark Kent to put on those nerdy glasses, and he's a great one at that. Fans had been hoping for years that he would get his own spinoff, and well, it finally happened.
Superman and Lois brings us Tyler Hoechlin's Superman at his best, the show will be diving deep into both sides of Clark Kent. We see him as the all powerful man of steel, but at home we get to see Clark Kent as the very human father of two teenagers. Trying to juggle everyday challenges, which also include the fallout of his sons learning his secret identity as well as battling a new villain who has just showed his face.
“With Superman, he stands for something, he is so symbolic and there’s things that you come to know that he’s unwavering in. And so you kind of feel a responsibility to carry on those things as well, but with Clark, there is more leeway with that. You can kind of find those little subtleties, those things that, you know, are a little bit more human about him. And it’s a little bit more flexible to kind of have some fun with it because in a way he’s putting on a show when he’s Clark. Hopefully Clark can be half the dad my dad was.” - Tyler Hoechlin
We are used to seeing Superman battling bad guys, aliens, criminals and more, now it's time to see how Clark is gonna deal with real-life issues.
