With Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel and Elizabeth Tulloch’s
Lois Lane soon to back on our screens as part of The CW’s huge Crisis on
Infinite Earths crossover event, now comes an update on the proposed spin-off
show for this duo.
Courtesy of Discussing Film, the current plan is for
Superman & Lois to start filming its pilot episode in March of next year.
Like so many of The CW’s content, production will take place in Vancouver,
In addition to being executive produced by the familiar trio
of Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns, Superman & Lois has
also brought in Todd Helbing. A former showrunner on The Flash, Helbing is the
person tasked with penning Superman & Lois for the network.
Since debuting as Superman in Supergirl’s second season,
Tyler Hoechlin has wowed as Kal-El. Delivering a Supes who is a true symbol of
hope, the Teen Wolf star’s Big Blue Boy Scout has proved to be the perfect
tonic for certain recent gloomy Superman incarnations. As for Elizabeth
Tulloch, her Lois Lane first appeared in last year’s Elseworlds crossover event.
From what we know so far about Superman & Lois, the
series will centre on the titular couple as they have to balance the joys of parenthood
with the obvious daily troubles that populate this shared universe of
superheroes and villains.
As mentioned, before Superman & Lois, the five-episode,
five-show Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will be upon us next month – and that
monumental event promises to change the very landscape of all things DC TV.
