Michael Cudlitz cast as Lex Luthor for Season 3

When Superman & Lois returns for its third season, we'll be seeing a new but familiar foe. With the establishment that the show doesn't really belong to the Arrowverse, there's a carte blanche to whether actors are reused or recasted for roles, and for Lex Luthor, we'll be having a new face, that of Michael Cudlitz. Best known for his role in The Walking Dead, Cudlitz will be portraying one of Superman's most well-known foes. Here's his character description:

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. 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 and Lois Lane.

Sounds ominous, and we're intrigued to see what Cudlitz will bring to the role. What do you think of this casting? Let us know your thoughts below and in our forum! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter for breaking news!
