Isn’t it typical? For the first time since the first season of Arrow, the CW DC factory creates something that isn’t a super-fey pile of cosplay and it comes at a time when the television-based DC content is likely to be canned to make way for the new DCU. Shame, as Superman & Lois is as good as the Arrowverse gets. Now it is getting Lex Luthor.

The Walking Dead and Southland actor Michael Cudlitz takes on the role, taking over from Jesse Eisenberg in the Zack Snyder films, Jon Cryer in Supergirl, Titus Welliver Titans, and Michael Rosenbaum in Smallville.

Ahead of the third season premiere, the actor had an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he spoke about joining the show:

“This whole experience so far has been amazing. From the collaboration with our showrunners Todd [Helbing] and Brent [Fletcher] to the incredibly warm welcome I received from Tyler [Hoechlin] and Elizabeth [Tulloch] and the entire cast and crew. I cannot wait to share with the fans how much fun we’ve been having. Personally, I’ve always felt Lex was just misunderstood.”

According to the press release, this version of Lex Luthor is known to the world as the visionary billionaire behind LexCorp. But the criminal underworld knows who Lex truly is: a brutal psychopath who terrorizes anyone he crosses paths with. 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.

The third season of Superman & Lois premiered last night on the CW.
