The third season of Superman & Lois, which airs on The CW and is connected to the Arrowverse, has finally begun production, which is sure to delight the show’s loyal audience. The departure of one of the show’s main actors has already brought about a significant transformation behind the scenes of the production (with their role recently recast). Now, the program has recruited an actor to portray a brand-new character that will appear for the entirety of the season. The role of S&L’s antagonist for Season 3 has been officially filled, and an alum from Arrow has been chosen for the role.
According to TVLine, Chad L. Coleman will be appearing in Superman & Lois as the nefarious Bruno Manheim. This announcement was made official by the publication. Fans of superheroes may remember the actor best for his part as Arrow’s Tobias Church, which he performed for four episodes during the fifth season of the series. The role lasted for the entirety of the fifth season of the series. Coleman has recently been immersed in a more interstellar environment due to the fact that he is now playing the part of Klyden on the television show The Orville (which is streamable with a Hulu subscription). The Walking Dead, All American, The Expanse, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia are just some of the other shows that he has worked on.
The actor is a fascinating choice to play Bruno Manheim, a character who was mentioned fleetingly by John Diggle in the climactic moments of S&L’s second season finale. According to what has been said about Manheim, this version of the famous Superman foe will very much be like how he is shown in the comics. This conclusion can be drawn from Manheim’s description. In the city of Metropolis, the villain is hailed as “a local hero” and credited with “reviving the downtrodden areas of the city.” In spite of this, it would appear that Lois Lane has been working for years to demonstrate that he is the head of the criminal organization known as Intergang.
It is reassuring to finally have confirmation that Manheim will, in fact, play a part in the continuation of the critically acclaimed series at this point. However, one can’t help but question whether he will be the only major antagonist that the program has to offer throughout the third season. One can’t help but wonder if he will be the only major antagonist. Ally Alston and Bizzaro were the two main antagonists of Season 2, with Bizzaro ultimately turning out to be more of an antihero by the time of his stunning death. Since Superman & Lois has a history of pulling a villain switcheroo or two, I’m intrigued to see how the story will develop this time around, given that they’ve done it before.
As was mentioned before, one of the other significant events that occurred during Season 3 was the departure of Jordan Elsass, who had previously portrayed the character of Jonathan Kent. The celebrity revealed the reason for his decision to leave the program, which was to concentrate on improving his mental health. Around the same time the previous week, it was claimed that Michael Bishop, an actor from Australia, would succeed Elsass in the role.
Changes such as cast additions and departures might engender concern, but the creators of Superman & Lois have given viewers very little grounds to question their work. In light of the fact that Chad L. Coleman has been cast in the character of Bruno Manheim, I can’t wait to see his performance in the role. The former cast member of Arrow has demonstrated that he is a great actor who is more than capable of holding his own with the show’s other outstanding actors.
