The Peanuts Movie actor Alexander Garfin and Little Fires Everywhere‘s Jordan Elsass have been cast as the sons of Clark Kent and Lois Lane for CW’s Superman and Lois according to Deadline.
Elsass will play Jonathan Kent, described by the trade as “clean-cut, modest and kind-hearted, with an aw-shucks attitude that somehow doesn’t seem dated.”
Garfin’s Jordan Kent is described as “wildly intelligent, but his mercurial temperament and social anxiety limits his interactions with people, and consequently, spends most of his free time alone, playing video games.”
Deadline mentions speculation that Jordan – a second son added in the wake of contnuity changes stemming from the CW’s “Crisis On Infinite Earths” – could be a version of the comic book Jonathan Kent’s best friend Damian Wayne, perhaps entrusted to Clark and Lois’ care while his father Bruce Wayne/Batman is missing, as in current Arrowverse continuity. In comics, the pair are known as the Super-Sons – and Jonathan is an only child.
Alternately, Deadline also speculates the pair could be fraternal twins.
Superman and Lois was picked up straight to series, and is currently in production for an unspecified premiere date.
