Not even a spark?
Maybe not on Lois' end when it comes too Clark, because I kind of like it when she's just always so focused on whatever story she is working on that she's totally oblivious to any male interest, or doesn't 'have time for it'.
But there should be a spark on his end IMO. It should be obvious he likes her from the get go.
And the whole point of the 'triangle' is that Superman becomes the one guy she literally CAN'T ignore, because he IS the story, and he keeps saving her life.
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
