A new teaser has been released for the CW’s superhero TV series Superman & Lois. The trailer hints at the soon-to-be return of the DC Comics show, giving fans an insight into the challenges the Kent family is expected to face in the next half of the first season.
The trailer tells a brief moment between Clark Kent and his son Jordan as he talks about his nascent superpowers. Kent alludes to the responsibility of having power, but seems to be met with the stubbornness of his son. Lois Lane is also seen admitting to Lana Cush that something menacing has appeared on Smallville. Probably one of the biggest developments to come out of the trailer is that viewers saw Captain Luthor discover a complete X-Kryptonite cave and have repeatedly proved to be Superman’s weakness.
X-Kryptonite is a variety of Kryptonite that grants people Krypton-like powers, but accidental exposure can be quite unstable. In the first half of the season, Morgan Edge was chosen to set up mining operations in Smallville and test X-Kryptonite on its citizens. It seems that Captain Luthor wants to use the material to give him some advantage when he meets the Man of Steel face-to-face.
Superman & Lois has been suspended from production briefly due to the epidemic, but is expected to return to The CW on May 18.
