Superman and Lois: Elizabeth Tulloch reveals a new look at Lois and Clark

Elizabeth (Bitsie) Tulloch revealed a new look at “Superman and Lois'” Lois and Clark over social media today. Last year, in preparation for the highly anticipated CW series, Tulloch took to Twitter asking fans what Lois Lane style should be represented on the show. This was the result. The photo depicts Lois and Clark’s first meeting at, you guessed it, the Daily Planet!

Starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the tetilur Lois and Clark, the newest installment to The CW’s superhero franchise will be an historic first for Metropolis’ finest as it explores the complexities of parenthood and super heroics.

Lois’ outfit displayed in the shared photo resembles that of Eloisa Lane from DC Comics’ limited “Bombshell” series. In the series, Eloisa Lane, also known as Lois Lane, was a Cuban American newspaper girl from Metropolis.

Elizabeth Tulloch takes her role as Lois Lane very seriously. When “Elseworlds” was filming, Tulloch took to social media and learned that Lois has a pension for purple. In response to this, Tulloch requested that Lois must wear purple at sometime during the crossover — and she did.

Tulloch was cast as the spectacular Lois Lane in Sept. 2018 and has since reprised the role for two annual crossovers, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” and “Elseworlds,” now she’s taking the mantle again as the titular character in her own series. According to IMDb, “Bitsie” is not a contraction of Elizabeth, but a homage to her oddly-nicknamed grandfather, a World War II and Korean War bomber pilot. 

Tulloch was born in San Diego, California, but grew up in Spain, Uruguay, and Argentina. Bitsie attended Harvard University and graduated with a double-major in Literature and Fine Arts. The actress is known for her work on “Grimm,” “The Artist” and more. Tulloch’s first acting credit was as R2-D2’s “girlfriend” in “R2-D2: Beneath the Dome,” a mockumentary produced by George Lucas telling the life story of the fictional robot R2-D2 from the Star Wars film series.

At the end of last year’s crossover event, “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, we first discovered that Lois and Clark actually have “boys” in this brave new universe. The super boys are twins, Jonathan (Jon) and Jordan Kent.

Superman’s super suit has been a staple of the character since the beginning. Tyler Heochlin’s debut as the last son of krypton was the first time Superman, suit and all, appeared on The CW, even though fans waited an entire decade for Smallville’s Clark Kent to put on the tights. Tyler Hoechlin is best recognized for his work on the fan favored MTV series “Teen Wolf,” where he portrayed werewolf Derek Hale, who appeared as a main character in the first four seasons of the show.

Tyler Hoechlin has been playing Superman for nearly half a decade. Hoechlin’s interpretation of the Man of Steel first appeared during the season premiere of “Supergirl’s” season two in 2016. Since then, Hoechlin’s Superman has made numerous guest appearances on his cousin’s show and guest starred on a slew of The CW’s annual crossovers.  

Tyler is best known for his work in “Road to Perdition,” “Everybody Wants Some!!” and “Teen Wolf.” Zack Snyder once considered Hoechlin for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but Hoechlin lost out to Ben Affleck. Interestingly enough, Tyler’s real life prom date was Katie Cassidy, who plays Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary/Black Siren in both “Arrow” and “The Flash,” along with other CW series.


In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.

Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.”
