People were excited when it was announced that Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman would appear yet again in the Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover (in his black suit!). Then, it was revealed that Lois Lane, played by Grimm’s Elizabeth Tulloch, would also make an appearance, meaning we’d finally see the supercouple back on the small screen.
The first photo of them together was revealed on Friday, and it looks like a throwback to the Richard Donner era. Hoechlin’s Superman looks terrific in the image, harkening closely to the iconic New 52 costume fans know and love.
Additionally, the location of the photo, at what looks like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, recalls Donner’s classic Superman movies. Even the gown worn by Tulloch’s Lois Lane conjures memories of Margot Kidder’s rendition of the character.
According to Hoechlin, Clark’s relationship with Lois will be “very strong” by the time we see them together.
“It’s deeper into the relationship, so there’s that comfortability factor and they know each other so well. They really kind of have a life together,” Hoechlin told TV Insider.
We’ll see the two characters in action when the Elseworlds crossover event begins on Sunday, December 9.
