It was only a few short weeks ago when we shared the first official trailer for the new DC Comics action adventure show that was coming to The CW Network with “Superman & Lois”. If you missed that trailer post just click HERE so you are up to speed with us about it. The show premieres tonight on the network and it will be a two-hour series premiere. Check your DVR space or make sure you have enough VHS Tape for your VCR. As I type that I realize my younger readers have given the site quizzical looks and mumbled “V? C? R?” Let’s take a look at the official poster, premise and casting down below.
A lot has happened since we last saw Superman on The CW Network. Not only is there a brand-new Batwoman, but both Supergirl and Black Lightning will be saying farewell to their respective shows with their most recent seasons. “Superman & Lois” brings the famous DC power couple back to the small screen as married parents and the first trailer is below for you to enjoy. I’ve also included some premise, casting and promotional art. Let’s go.

From these segments I have opted to share my thoughts on the first issues for your reading pleasure.
