No Metropolis in Superman & Lois
It is not yet clear how this will be handled on screen (will Clark and Lois really work at Smallville or will they just live there?), But we already know the reason for such a creative choice. Todd Helbing – creator revealed he found it interesting to ride the aftermath of Crisis on Infinite Earths , last year's giant crossover.
” We wanted to tell a story where you could follow parents who, after the tragic events that took place, decide to come back to Smallville because they realize that it is probably easier to raise children in a place where life is not as intense as it can be in Metropolis “.
A family (and superheroic) series
Also, don't expect to find a classic series within the Arrowverse. Despite a new costume for Tyler Hoechlin who will therefore continue to play the hero, the primary goal of Superman & Lois could above all be to truly follow the daily life of this family like no other.
” The series will see the couple learn to deal with the stress, pressure, and complexity that come when you are two working parents who have to raise two teenagers in a current, post-Crisis society, ” we learned in particular. And strangely, even if we will miss Metropolis, the prospect of seeing a little less “pif paf pouf” on the screen to focus a little more on the personal lives of the characters (which The Flash can't quite do for example despite promising tracks in its debut) promises to be exciting and could bring a breath of fresh air in the Arrowverse.
