The CW ordered Superman And Lois straight to series.  Now casting is ramping up on the latest Berlanti-verse effort with the news that Nip/Tuck star Dylan Walsh is set to play General Samuel Lane.

Father to Lois and Lucy Lane, he is a committed Army general who often falls out with his daughter over his stance on threats to the planet from both domestic enemies and potential foes from outer space.

Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch will reprise their roles Clark And Lois.   The Flash executive producer Todd Helbing will be showrunner.

It is currently queued up and ready to film when studios re-open following the current lockdown.

The role has previously been played by Michael Ironside on Smallville and Harve Presnell on 1990s effort Lois & Clark.
