Since Jonathan was still alive and Clark had already left home and was attending college, I'd say "No".

In the movies, Jonathan died while Clark was in high school.

They even intended the Superboy series to end on a cliffhanger and lead into a theatrical movie where the actor would begin playing SuperMAN and the movie series would be rebooted.

Things didn't work out that way, but even with the events seen on the show (including the fact Clark was publicly known as Superboy long before Superman appeared), it's plain this was a different universe from the Chris Reeve films.


To be honest, though, they tried their damndest to tie into the Reeve films (if in a revisionist way), like when Superboy meets his parents in Season 2.

The way they did the clothes, the hair, to the way they speak... they were definitely wanting you to think of the S:TM version of Krypton/Jor-El & Lara.
