“The Walking Dead” favorite Michael Cudlitz is heading to yet another pretty major comic book project. The CW’s surprise hit series “Superman & Lois” returns for a third season, and in it, Cudlitz will debut as Lex Luthor.
If you’re scratching your head, you’re not alone. Yes, Jon Cryer has been playing the notable DC Comics villain in the Arrowverse but- things are getting a little Infinite Earth up in here. Cudlitz will reportedly be playing a different universe’s Lex.
This version of Lex is described as being “known to the world as the visionary billionaire behind LexCorp, but secretly, the criminal underworld knows who Lex truly is: a brutal psychopath who terrorizes anyone he crosses paths with. When Lex debuts this season, it’s been years since he dropped out of the public eye and he’s re-emerging hellbent on correcting a personal injustice by enacting revenge on the two people he feels have wronged him — Superman and Lois Lane.”
“Teen Wolf” star Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, and Bitsie Tulloch as Lois Lane.
Season 3 of “Superman & Lois” premieres March 14th, 2023 on The CW.
