SUPERMAN & LOIS Finale Teed Up Its Season 3 Big Bad(s) Bruno Manheim & Intergang
Bruno Manheim and his criminal organization Intergang will be among the Big Bad(s) of Superman & Lois season 3.
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.
How do these Big Bad(s) connect with Superman & Lois.?John Diggle (David Ramsey) tells John Henry Irons (Wolé Parks) in the season 2 finale 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.
P.S. This is not Arrow’s John Diggle talking to John Henry Irons since it turns out that the Superman of Superman & Lois is on his own Earth not the Earth Prime of Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl and her cousin Superman, the Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning.
Or as Sam Lane tells his grandsons in the season 2 finale: “I’ve seen things you would not believe — glimpses of other worlds, and the leagues of superheroes they have on them. And even though we only have your father on this planet, Thank God that we do, because he’s the finest of any Earth.”
DC and Superman & Lois showrunner Todd Helbing came to a decision to keep Superman & Lois separate from the Arrowverse, but it wasn’t a clean break. How do you explain John Diggle’s earlier visit when he spoke of Oliver Queen and the Green Lantern ring?
Not that it matters much now that Arrow, Black Lightning, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman have all ended their runs, leaving The Flash as the last Arrowverse show standing.
DC Stargirl is on her own Earth, too.
