SUPERMAN & LOIS Casts Michael Bishop as New Jonathan Kent After OG Jordan Elsass’s Exit
Look at the matching curls on the rebooted Kent twins. Superman & Lois found its new Jonathan Kent in Australian Michael Bishop, as filming of season 3 got underway this week in metro Vancouver.
And the new guy has game.
Filming dates: September 06 2022 – April 05 2023.
Season 3 Premiere Director: Tom Cavanagh.
Michael Bishop’s casting follows the news out of Dragon Con that Chad Coleman who played Tobias Church on Arrow will play the Big Bad in Superman & Lois season 3 — Bruno Manheim, the head of Intergang.
In DC lore, Lois Lane has her run-ins with Bruno Manheim and Intergang, while covering the Metropolis underworld for the Daily Planet. Their introduction to Superman & Lois in season 3 could shift some filming back to downtown Vancouver as urban Metropolis.
In the season 2 finale, John Diggle (David Ramsey) told John Henry Irons (Wolé Parks) in the Smallville Diner that Bruno Manheim and the Intergang killed this Earth’s John Henry Irons.
What we always try to do is set up a villain so that he or she feels like they’re going after one specific person on our show, but then it spreads and you see how it affects everybody. So, yeah. There’s going to be a history with everybody, with this guy. It’s not just with John Henry Irons. – showrunner Todd Helbing to the Krypton Site.
