Deadline reports a Superman & Lois TV series starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch is in the works at The CW. Hoechlin and Tulloch will be reprising their roles as Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane, respectively, which they have previously done on other series from The CW’s DC Universe, such as Supergirl, and The Flash. Tulloch made her debut as Lane on the 2018 Arrowverse crossover event "Elseworlds." 

When Tulloch spoke with TVLine prior to "Elseworlds," she suspected that a standalone pilot could "potentially" happen, but it depended on the response to their first appearance together. "I think it’ll depend on how [the crossover] is reviewed and a bunch of other external factors that nobody has really that much control over," she said. "I know Tyler and I would love to come back and work more together. We fortunately had great chemistry, which is not always a given." 

Deadline describes Superman & Lois as being developed as a standalone pilot, but "will not be introduced as a planted spinoff." 


@tylerhoechlin and I are so happy that we can finally talk about this project!!! I am so excited (thank you @warnerbrostv, @dccomics, @thecw, @gberlanti et al). Our incredible showrunner Todd Helbing is writing SUCH a riveting, unique, and poignant story for us. And I couldn’t ask for a better or more fun partner than Tyler 🎉 Also, in the interest of reiterating how much I LOVE playing #LoisLane, I’m reposting part of the blurb I wrote when I was first cast a year ago: Excuse me while I fangirl for a moment: When I started acting, one of my teachers asked me to watch the screen tests for the role of Lois Lane for 1978’s Superman. All of the actresses were terrific, but it was always clear to me why Margot Kidder won the role: she seemed lit from within, full of joie de vivre. Now, at a time when the noble profession of journalism feels under siege, it’s a privilege to join the club of actresses who have played the dogged reporter. As far back as 1938 when she first appeared in Action Comics #1, Lois Lane has defied and subverted society’s expectations of how women should behave. She was portrayed as opinionated, inquisitive, and an unapologetically badass career woman at a time when many representations of women leaned more towards meek and demure. One of the reasons the character has remained so compelling for the last 80 years is that she has all these formidable, strong-willed qualities, but she’s also vulnerable, romantic, and feminine. A truly modern woman. ❤️
