THE CW: The ‘Superman & Lois’ pilot should begin filming soon, so some character breakdowns have dropped online that look pretty valid, Though nothing official has been released. So take all the below info with a grain of salt.  (Where did that old saying come from?)  Anyway, the breakdowns paint a picture that could be pretty interesting, if true…

“As the series opens, LOIS LANE is still working at the Daily Planet, but CLARK KENT has just been fired following a massive layoff plan at the journal. His father JONATHAN KENT is no longer with them, while his mother MARTHA KENT is living alone on the farm where he grew up in Smallville. They have twins, JONATHAN and JORDAN KENT, who are thirteen and very different — both physically and otherwise. Jonathan is the popular one, an all-star athlete who’s about to enter the Varsity team, while Jordan is more introverted, anxiety prone, and very much into computers and video games. They don’t know who their father really is… yet. And they may or may not have inherited his powers.

Lois’s father GENERAL SAMUEL LANE is in the picture and knows about Clark. LANA LANG is also a big part of the show. She’s a banker, still living in Smallville, with her husband KYLE CUSHING, a firefighter, and their daughters, SARAH, who’s fourteen, and younger SOPHIE who’s eight.

And yes, Superman has an enemy in this version of the story, who appears as THE STRANGER in the pilot. His true identity is revealed a the end of the episode…”

So what do you think? I think it sounds promising… I think they have twins now, to give us that whole ‘Super Sons’ vibe from the popular DC Comic Book series.  It focused on Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne, the sons of Superman and Batman. But since they can’t use Batman, because of the movies, they can’t use Damian.   It’ll be interesting to see if one son ends up with powers while one doesn’t. That’ll add some CW-style angst in the Kent household. BREAKING NEWS: Jordan Elsass & Alexander Garfin cast as the Kent boys…

Also, Lois is the award-winning reporter, so it makes sense that she’s the one who keeps her job, in an era where actual print news is dying like the dinosaurs. But I hope they don’t keep the kids in the dark, regarding Dad’s alter-ego.  Even though that’s how things were for a while in the comics.  I say, build the family-unit on truth, not deception.  But I’m excited about the series.  And can’t wait to see what they come up with…
