My Adventures With Superman sees Jack Quaid take up the mantle of the Man of Steel. His co-star Alice Lee, who plays Lois Lane in the series, reflects on his refreshing take on the character.
My Adventures With Superman serves as a reinvention of the franchise, breaking characters down to their base components and making something new. Not only does the series give fans the romance between Lois Lane (Alice Lee) and Clark Kent (Jack Quaid) that they’ve been waiting for, but it also dashes down the “Evil Superman” trope with pure optimism. Lee reflected on this in a recent interview, calling Quaid’s take on the character “refreshing.
“Yeah, I feel like animation’s so cool, because when you watch the animation, I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t know that it’s Jack [Quaid].’ He just sounds so good,” Lee told The Movie Podcast. “I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s totally Clark. That’s totally Superman.’ And yeah I think, he’s just good at the humility part, again, Clark being down to Earth, so sweet, and genuine. And yeah I think it’s so refreshing to see this kind of Clark Kent/Superman, because I think all the iterations that I’m used to are very serious and very dark… Like, he’s younger, more youthful, a little more playful, fun, kinda nerdy, but just so sweet. Like the way he fumbles… And I think Jack just nailed it.”
Recent years have seen a rise in cynical adaptations of Superman, from Invincible to Brightburn to even Jack Quaid’s own The Boys. My Adventures With Superman giving us an unabashedly positive take on the hero was as refreshing to fans as it was to Alice Lee. The only issue with the series is that the second season isn’t out right now!
Superman’s DC Universe Future
Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
