David Ramsey is on deck to direct another Superman & Lois episode in season 2, after wowing us with season one’s pivotal episode Man of Steel.
And its big reveal that The Stranger is John Henry Irons aka Steel.
Superman & Lois Season 2 starts filming mid-September in Vancouver.
Filming dates: September 14th, 2021 to April 13th, 2022.
And it looks like Ramsey is slated to direct the second episode 2×02.
David Ramsey was the perfect fit to direct Man of Steel last season which showed us why John Henry Irons (Wole Parks) was doing what he was doing and what his world’s Lois Lane (Bitsie Tulloch) and their daughter Natalie (Tayler Buck) meant to him.
Don’t miss the huge reveal on tonight’s #SupermanandLois (Let me know if you saw THIS coming!) #ManofSteel — David Ramsey, May 25th.
Superman didn’t. see it coming.
David Ramsey can continue the Steel saga in season 2 now that a space pod carrying John Henry’s lost daughter Natalie has crash-landed on the Kent Farm in the final moments of Superman & Lois’s season one finale.
After an emotional reunion with her Dad, Natalie aka Nat-Bug looked past him and saw someone who looked exactly like her Mom, alive and well.
Cast: Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Jordan Elsass, Alexander Garfin, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette, Dylan Walsh, Wolé Parks, Sofia Hasmik and Tayler Buck.
David Ramsey, like his Arrow co-star Stephen Amell, was a Superman & Lois superfan from the start.

Later Stephen Amell commented on Ramsey’s Instagram post.
Ramsey talked to TV Line about how cinematic Superman & Lois is.
You’re floating between three anamorphic lenses, to get that aspect ratio – that’s the technical stuff — and it’s just a different pace. Tonally, it’s a different pace. – David Ramsey to TV Line.
And in terms of story.
I don’t think it’s a small secret that it’s a family show that has Superman in it, and you feel that. You feel that in the scope, in the way it’s shot, you feel that in the writing, and obviously in the performances. And that’s not taking away anything from the other shows. It’s just a different type of pace, and a different look. I mean, the pilot was incredibly cinematic, and it set the tone. We were all playing catch-up in the sense that the pilot had months to shoot it, while each episode has 10 days. So, you’re trying to keep that scope, that look and that pace that the pilot had, and I think every episode has done a great job of that. But that show was very different than most of the Arrowverse. — David Ramsey to TV Line
Ramsey told EW how his work as an actor-director was a good fit because Superman & Lois is more performance-oriented than other Arrowverse shows.
I think part of what I brought — particularly with Wolé [Parks] and Bitsie [Tulloch], because they have some pretty heavy lifting in the episode — was [telling the actors], “Whatever your choices are, do it. Try it again. Dig into that, or pull back from that.” I think one of my talents as an actor-director was to allow the technical experts in the visual and special effects departments to be there without interfering with these heavy moments Wolé had in this episode. — David Ramsey to EW.
