Here we take a look at the Superman & Lois Reviews to see how this new series has been received.
This is how the CW introduced us to Superman & Lois:-
They have had years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis. Plus they had the alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race! In the series they come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever of being working parents in today’s society!!
Not really a great way to win over the typical superman fan, perhaps?
The two main characters are certainly played by noteworthy actors. We have the world’s most famous superhero, known as The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent here played by Tyler Hoechlin, of Teen Wolf fame. Plus the comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane played by Elizabeth Tulloch of Grimm fame.
So what did the reviewers make of it?
SF Chronicle Superman & Lois Review by Zaki Hasan
- The show is off to a promising start at balancing the Kents’ family drama with the various elements of derring-do one expects
- At once spin-off, sequel and reinvention, Superman & Lois offers a loving synthesis of elements from the Superman mythos
- This is the CW’s most confident DC debut and a new, exciting chapter for the “world’s greatest hero”
Variety‘s Superman & Lois Review by Caroline Framke
- For all the logical storylines and character journeys that Superman and Lois includes, it nonetheless lacks the spark to make any of it very interesting
- It’s also notable, and unfortunate, that the equal footing Superman and Lois are granted in the title isn’t reflected in the show itself
- A strangely grim take on one of comics’ brightest heroes
Entertainment Weekly’s Superman & Lois Review by Darren Franich
- [The show] takes a bold creative risk, transforming the hero into the most embarrassingly uncool creature in the multiverse: A dad
- Suffice it to say that the first half of this premiere is heavy on emotion and openhearted sincerity
- So I hope Superman & Lois lives up to its ambitions, even though I worry it’s taking on a lot
Digital Spy’s Superman & Lois review by David Opie
- Based just off the first episode, Superman & Lois doesn’t seem to know if it’s part of the Arrowverse or if it’s just the cheaper cousin of Zack Snyder’s movie fare. Either way, the show as a whole suffers for it
- the lighter aspects of this story are smothered by clunky scripting and a distinct lack of charm
- Let’s just hope Superman has the strength to pull these fibres back together in future episodes and forge something new
TV Line‘s Superman & Lois Review by Matt Roush
- This terribly earnest drama, opening with a 90-minute premiere, skips past the romance and honeymoon period to more domestic concerns
- [It’s] often moving slower than a spent bullet when Superman isn’t flying off to some calamity
- I just wish they could rekindle that thrill of first love
