From The Walking Dead to Superman & Lois Season 3, check out the newly bald Michael Cudlitz as Lex Luthor.
The image is revealed ahead of tonight’s big Season 3 premiere on The CW.
“Ok. Let’s do this thing …… #lexluthor,” the actor posted on Instagram.
Michael Cudlitz’s Lex Luthor is misunderstood
“This whole experience so far has been amazing,” Cudlitz tells EW. “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.”
The character description for Lex Luthor in Superman & Lois reveals Cudlitz’s Lex Luthor is 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.
The description continues: 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 (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch).
Superman & Lois Season 3 premiers tonight at 8pm EST followed by the premiere of Gotham Knights.
What is Superman & Lois Season 3 about?
Season 3 kicks off following the end of the Season 2 finale weeks after Superman’s defeat of Ally Allston.
Clark and Lois are now working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small-town life, but the Kents’ romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating “the secret” can be, as Chrissy struggles to balance a new love interest and her friendship with Lois. However, Lois’ own work-life balance is put to the test when an undercover assignment reveals a deadly foe that promises to change the Kent family forever.
Superman would move heaven and earth for his family, but with a villain this merciless, even that might not be enough. Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan discovers what a superhero-identity really means and Jonathan searches for purpose beyond the football field.
Amid all this upheaval, John Henry is haunted by his doppelgänger’s past, leading to dangerous consequences for him and Natalie. Lana Lang and Kyle redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah explores what the future holds for her and Jordan now that she knows the truth about his powers.
Having learned the hard way that no one else can be trusted to work with Superman, General Samuel Lane reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.
