"Crisis On Infinite Earths" changed quite a few things for its currently airing Arrow-verse shows, including something for a show that hasn't even debuted yet. The Superman & Lois series is currently in development, and it has finally cast the possible twin sons that Lois teased she and Clark had at the end of the mega crossover. The project has cast Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin to play Superman's teenage sons Jonathan and Jordan.
Descriptions are out for each character, and Jordan Elsass' Jonathan doesn't sound that far off from his old man. Jonathan is described as "kind-hearted" and "modest," with an old-school attitude that doesn't feel out of style in these modern times. Elsass hasn't had a ton of major roles in Hollywood to this point, but is slated to appear in the Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington-led Hulu miniseries Little Fires Everywhere in March
Then there's Alexander Garfin's Jordan, who Deadline hinted could be more of an outcast than his brother. Jordan suffers from social anxiety, and for that reason, tends to spend more time playing video games than interacting with other people. Though unconfirmed, the two boys are believed to be twins.
Alexander Garfin made a name for himself as a voice actor for Linus in the Peanuts movie, but has done some live-action acting in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, first in 2009 and then again in 2011. Granted, the 2011 appearance was nearly a decade ago, so he'll look a good deal older than this picture when he appears in Superman & Lois.
Prior to "Crisis On Infinte Earths," Lois and Clark only had one child. Their infant son Jon is presumably gone following "Crisis," and has now been replaced by two teenage sons. Changes like this have happened in the Arrow-verse before, and it seems like children are always the first to change in these big events. How will Clark adjust from being a new dad to an infant to one to two teenage sons? Even Superman has to struggle with that change a bit.
Especially if either or both of these sons have superpowers! DC Comics has a history of superpowered children of Supes and Lois, though I'm not sure how the Arrow-verse will treat its newest half-Kryptonian characters. Perhaps Jonathan is more like his father personality-wise because he too has powers, and Jordan is less confident because he lacks them? Maybe the opposite is true with powers, and Jordan is worried about the massive responsibility that comes with leaping tall buildings in a single bound.
That answer will eventually come as The CW has already green-lit Superman & Lois for a series order. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the Man of Steel, his offspring, the new series, and for other things happening in the world of television and movies.
