The hit DC show, ‘Superman & Lois’ has cast it’s lead villain for season 3. The series has been hugely popular among Superman fans and so far the casting decisions have been on point.
During a panel titled ‘Arrow Guests: Saving Star City’ at DragonCon, David Ramsey who plays John Diggle and has directed several episodes for The DCTV confirmed that actor Chad L. Coleman had been cast as the main villain of the upcoming season. The role itself is not yet confirmed, however there may have been a hint in the finale of season two where Diggle approached John Henry Irons with some intel on a character named Bruno Mannheim.
In the comics, Bruno ‘ugly’ Mannheim is the leader of Intergang whose place of operations is in Metropolis. Intergang is a crime syndicate first introduced in 1970 in the pages of Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #133. They are connected to Darkseid and Apokolips, with Bruno Mannheim being the one to take orders directly from Darkseid. Mannheim in a very worthy villain and could potentially lead Superman & Lois towards the introduction of Darkseid, which would make for a huge storyline.
Superman & Lois Season 3 will premiere in 2023 on The CW and I cannot wait for them to confirm who Chad L. Coleman will be playing. If it is Bruno Mannheim from Intergang, it could be interesting for sure!
