Cain & Hatcher Would Like To See “Lois & Clark” Revived
Some of you reading our site may remember the 1933-97 ABC TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” which focused on the relationship and romance between Lois and Clark as much as the adventures of Clark’s alter-ego, Superman
Former series leads Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher appeared at this years New York Comic-Con this past weekend, where both stars revealed they’d interested in a Lois & Clark revival:
“I think it needs more than an episode. I would love to see what Lois and Clark are up to [now]. The possibilities are endless”, Cain commented. “I could see the baby having been a Kryptonian child and they had to go back. I could see them having a couple of Krypto-Earth kids. … I think Lois Lane is probably mayor of Metropolis, running stuff. Clark is still pushing paper and pencil, chasing stories.”
Hatcher added: “I thought maybe as the kid was getting older, he’s struggling with trying to figure out what to do with his powers, and [Clark] would have to get his powers back. And then, I was mostly thinking about a marriage where you stay together [despite the struggles]. When [Clark] didn’t have powers and Lois was working, it was emasculating and struggling … but once the kid is out of the picture, Lois and Clark have to figure out do we stay married?”
The two stars revealed that there had even been talks with people at Warner Brothers about reviving the series. “It’s a complicated sell because they have their own plan for the superheroes [and where Superman fits in],” said Hatcher.
This may be just wishful thinking on behalf of both Cain and Hatcher, but who knows. With the recent revival of such series as “Will and Grace” and “Murphy Brown”, this could be a distinct possibility.
