With so many movie and TV projects up in the air right now due to the pandemic that’s causing such chaos and uncertainty across the globe, one offering that is currently still scheduled to start production later this year is The CW’s Superman and Lois series. And now, that show has added a new name to its ranks.
Via Deadline, Nip/Tuck’s Dylan Walsh has signed on to play General Sam Lane in this new Arrowverse series. In case you hadn’t guessed it, the General is the father of Lois Lane.
For the eagle-eyed out there, you’ll be aware that the Sam Lane character has already appeared in this shared universe of shows, with Glenn Morshower playing Sam in Supergirl. Now though, Walsh will be portraying the character going forward.
Following the events of the epic Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, we now know that Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel and Bitsie Tulloch’s Lois Lane will have two sons when their own show debuts. On that front, Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin have been cast as Jonathan and Jordan Kent, respectively.
The original plan was for production on Superman and Lois to start up imminently, with the series to premiere towards the end of the year. Like so many other shows, it remains to be seen whether it’s possible to adhere to those plans due to the ever-changing situation the world finds itself in right now.
As ever, expect more on Superman and Lois as it continues to develop.
