At the dawn of the broadcast of season 3 of “Superman & Lois” in the United States, a new actor has just been chosen to play the big bad Lex Luthor after Jon Cryer! This actor was also one of the stars of “The Walking Dead”…
Season 3 of Superman & Lois will be one of change! Indeed, a new actor is about to join the ranks of the TF1 series. After the departure of Jon Cryer from the show, the role of Lex Luthor will therefore soon be reassigned to a well-known actor on the small screen since it is Michael Cudlitz!
Michael Cudlitz joins ‘Superman & Lois’
As a reminder, this one has played in recent years in the American fictions Southland or The Walking Dead. Across the Atlantic, it is the EW site which has announced that he will be the future interpreter of the greatest enemy of the Iron Man.
In this round of never-before-seen episodes, viewers will find Lex meaner than ever. The billionaire will have stayed away from public life for years and will reappear to correct what he considers to be a personal injustice…
A new Lex Luthor
He will plot his revenge to hurt the two people he thinks betrayed him: Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch)! For their part, the latter will live their lives peacefully in Smallville, working in the local gazette… until an investigation by Mrs. Kent unearths a dark affair that could change everything for her family.
At the same time, Jordan (Alex Garfin) will understand what it means to be a superhero, while Jonathan will search for the meaning of his life on the football pitch. Finally, General Lane (Dylan Walsh) will claim his job at the Department of Defense. An entire program !
This recast isn’t the first to occur in Superman & Lois this year. On March 14 (date of return to the air of the series in the United States), fans will discover Michael Bishop in the skin of Jonathan (one of the two sons of the star couple) since Jordan Elsass, the former interpreter of the protagonist, will not make a comeback.
