The Arrowverse is slowly drawing to a close. Flash is going to end this season, the new series Gotham Knights is being skewered by critics before it’s even had a chance to premiere, and Superman and Lois is starting the first of its two final seasons this week.

While the Arrowverse already has a Lex Luthor in the form of Jon Cryer (Two and Half Men), Superman and Lois is going in a whole new direction this season by rebooting the character with a much different look and attitude. The actor playing the classic DC villain is none other than The Walking Dead’s Michael Cudlitz.

Today we are getting our first look at the character via EW.

Season 3 Synopsis:

“Superman & Lois season 3 begins just weeks after Clark Kent/Superman defeated Ally Allston (Rya Kihlstedt), and 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 (Sofia Hasmik) 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 (Alex Garfin) discovers what a superhero identity really means and Jonathan (now played by Michael Bishop after Jordan Elsass suddenly exited the series after season 2) searches for purpose beyond the football field. Amid all this upheaval, John Henry (Wolé Parks) is haunted by his doppelgänger’s past, leading to dangerous consequences for him and Natalie (Tayler Buck). Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Kyle (Erik Valdez) redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah (Inde Navarrette) 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 (Dylan Walsh) reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.”
