We are just a few hours away from the premiere of the newest show in the CWVerse, Superman and Lois. The series will focus on the lives of Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent/Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane. The superpowered couple now live in Smallville, where they returned after the events in Crisis on Infinite Earths. Actually, the crossover changed their history, and now they are the parents of two boys, Jonathan and Jordan Kent. The series will kick off with a 90-minute premiere episode.
And now, the CW has debuted a short clip from the upcoming pilot. The video features Clark’s first encounter with Lois at the Daily Planet. You can watch it in the player below.

Lee Toland Krieger directed the episode from a story by Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing and a teleplay by Todd Helbing. The official description for the Superman and Lois pilot reads:
“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.”
