Superman & Lois EP Teases Supergirl/Arrowverse "Answer" This Season

Posted on April 3, 2022 by Ray Flook

Considering that The CW's Tyler Hoechlin & Elizabeth Tulloch-starring Superman & Lois has its backstory roots deeply entrenched in the Arrowverse, a number of fans have been wondering why the show hasn't been embracing its connections to Supergirl (especially considering the family connections with Melissa Benoist's Kara), The Flash, Batwoman, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and others. In the past, the creative team has stressed the importance of giving Superman & Lois a chance to build itself up as its own series first before branching out to other shows. And then the pandemic reportedly scrapped a number of potential crossover plans. But at this weekend's WonderCon 2022, series showrunner & EP Todd Helbing dropped a ten-ton hint at the end of a panel Q&A that also included Hoechlin and Tulloch. When asked jokingly by the host if Lois & Clark could at least get a text from Kara as a way of getting to the bigger issue at hand, Helbing conceded that the two reasons we just went over were big factors. But then the clouds shifted as Helbing teased that some clarity may be on the way… and sooner than viewers think. "I'll just say that at the end of this season [Season 2], you'll get the answer to the questions that you guys have." Hmmm… will this "answer" be specific to Superman & Lois or does it speak to much bigger Arrowverse plans that are in play?

Whatever direction the show went with was fine with me as it wasn't going to affect my enjoyment which is mainly based on how the show treats its titular characters and my interest in those said characters.

COVID did indeed have an influence on S & L being a standalone show and it also affected the chances of a Superman appearance in Supergirl's season finale which would've been nice, even a short phone conversation between Kara and Clark (like Kara and Cat had) would've been cool, it didn't happen though and that was OK as there's plenty of other moments between them to re-watch and enjoy, same applies to crossovers.

I like that there's potential for Supergirl to come onto this show sometime in the future and get a possible fresh take on the character. Not for 2 or 3 more years though as I want Sasha Calle's iteration to be the next one we see.


I like Superman & Lois.Really like it in fact.This one element has annoyed me to no end and the series kept making it a issue by the choices they made and didn't make while leaving the questions hanging in the air but it was addressed in the finale and even though I don't like the answer and how it was handled by TPTB(and does color my views of how I look at the show in a certain way attest for right now),it's addressed.done and I won't bring it up again.

For the record,minus the Sam Lane speech where this was addressed,I thought the finale was good and think parts of it topped last night's Flash finale(which I also liked).

I can thank S&L for one thing. I now understand why people troll the social media of a show they don’t watch for the purpose of saying it sucks. I have not and will never do it but I totally get the compulsion to do so now. I haven’t gone on Hypergate media’s site for S&L, side note thanks again for keeping this site about Supergirl, admins would you share what was said about this there.


Except that's what you use this site for. Every post you make about S and L here is a hate post so any opinion you have about the show doesn't really deserve any respect.

I don't think I made hate posts or even posted about Superman & Lois often nor other shows.Yes,this one element has bothered me and it relates to Supergirl which is when I've posted about it here I mean they brought a Supergirl character over to S & L with the same actress playing her and retcon the character.Why wouldn't that be a topic on a Supergirl forum?It's the same reason I posted about the Earth Prime comics,Armageddon and any potential future guest appearances from Supergirl casts,It's all in relation to this series but I do like S & L and expressed that in past posts.I think the acting is great,the look and effects are wonderful and the storylines have been stellar.I think your wrong about me making hate posts all the time or my opinion doesn't matter.I like the show.I watch every episode.I buy the blu ray set of each season and rewatch episodes.I'm going to watch season 3.There was just one element I didn't like in relation to Supergirl and the larger Arrowverse and had an immediate reaction to how it was finally dealt with.I think you're allowed to have a reaction positive or negative.I'm not the only one who had a rreaction.Like I said abovre,this issue is now addressed and I won't post about it again unless something new comes out in relation to Supergirl casts/characters.

Perhaps comic fan in the future you can post anything about Superman and Lois on Admin's site they've created for that show - https://supermanandloistv.com/.



Again I only posted about S & L here when it has related to Supergirl.This topic related to Supergirl.

I believe the reference was to my comments and I’ll agree that I don’t like S&L one bit. I believe what they did was disrespectful to the cast and crew of Supergirl. Note I said, “I now understand why people troll the social media of a show they don’t watch for the purpose of saying it sucks.” that means I don’t/won’t go on a social media site for S&L but this is not such a site. My comments are my opinions about how I feel S&L is treating the legacy of Supergirl.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this but at a convention last weekend Elizabeth Tulloch revealed that Melissa Benoist still wants to make an appearance on Superman & Lois.If Melissa herself makes a future comment or this were to happen,I would make a new thread.

Supergirl Star Melissa Benoist Wants to Appear on Superman & Lois

BY LEE FREITAG
PUBLISHED 39 MINUTES AGO

Elizabeth Tulloch reveals that Melissa Benoist is reportedly open to returning as Supergirl in the Arrowverse-adjacent Superman and Lois.

https://static1.cbrimages.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Supergirl-Superman-and-Lois-Arrowverse.jpg

Superman and Lois star Elizabeth Tulloch has revealed that Melissa Benoist wants to return as Supergirl in the superhero drama series.

The actor, who currently portrays Lois Lane on The CW series, recently attended Fan Expo Canada 2022 with her co-star Tyler Hoechlin, who portrays the titular Man of Steel. The actors were asked to respond to a rumor that had been circulating that claimed Benoist would be appearing in the upcoming third season of Superman and Lois. "We have not heard that rumor about her coming on the show," Tulloch said. "She has expressed interest to me in doing it, and I know that we would love to work with her again and Grant [Gustin] and everyone else. I just don't know...ever since we started the show, COVID has been a reality which is why we haven't done any of the crossovers or anything like that, so we just can't speak to whether or not that's feasible."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKScHudEDyg



Benoist played Kara Danvers/Supergirl in all six seasons of Supergirl, which aired from 2015 to 2021, as well as in several crossover appearances on The Flash and other Arrowverse series. If Benoist did appear on Superman and Lois there is a chance that she would be playing an entirely new version of the Girl of Steel since the Season 2 finale of Superman and Lois established that the DC series was set in its own world, separate from Earth-Prime which is Benoist's Supergirl, Grant Gustin's The Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow. Showrunner Todd Helbing explained the decision to not set Superman and Lois on Earth-Prime was done to allow the creative team the opportunity to put their "own stamp on the Superman property."

Supergirl Would Be Reinvented for Superman and Lois

Superman and Lois being set on its own Earth will allow the creatives to drastically reinvent the Girl of Steel, which is something that Helbing is excited to tackle should the opportunity present itself. "Yeah, it would not be the Supergirl from the Arrowverse, it would be our version so we would invent a new backstory for her," Helbing explained. "The same way that we did with Lucy [Lane], General Lane, and John Diggle, the same way with John Diggle" He continued, "They may be their doppelganger and they may look exactly the same. But it would be a completely different story."

Helbing, Tulloch, Hoechlin and the rest of the cast and crew are currently in the midst of pre-production of Superman and Lois Season 3, which will begin filming this September. One cast member who will not be returning is Jordan Elsass, who departed the DC series after two seasons in Aug. 2022. Warner Bros. Television stated that the actor had left "due to personal reasons" and that the role of Jonathan Kent would be recast. Elsass later explained that he stepped away from the popular show to focus on his mental health. "I know that I was pumped for Season 3, for sure, but what are you going to do? Anyway, mental health is definitely 100-percent priority. It’s pinnacle. It’s got to take precedence," Elsass said in a video message to a fan.

Superman and Lois Season 3 will premiere on The CW in 2023.

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Wants To Guest On Superman & Lois, Says Star

BY ANDY BEHBAKHT

Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist is still game to make a guest appearance on The CW's Superman & Lois, says Lois Lane star Bitsie Tulloch.

https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Melissa-Benoist-as-Supergirl-With-Superman-And-Lois-Stars.jpg

According to Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Lois Lane on The CW series Superman & Lois, Supergirl star Melissa Benoist is open to making a guest appearance on the show. Before the global pandemic struck the world, The CW's Arrowverse franchise was bigger than ever, with more than five shows running at the time. After the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline happened in 2020, the Arrowverse got a soft reboot while bringing all of the ongoing DC TV shows on the network together in one shared universe, known as Earth-Prime.

While Superman & Lois was initially conceived as a Supergirl spinoff, it was established that both shows took place in the same world as the other Arrowverse dramas. However, once Tyler Hoechlin and Tulloch's offshoot series kicked off, Superman & Lois season 1 didn't refer to any of the other Justice League heroes. Most importantly, it ignored Kara Zor-El herself. Supergirl, being one of Clark Kent's last remaining blood relatives, never made any appearances, and the lack of mentions made fans question what was going on. It wasn't until the season 2 finale that the writers dropped a plot twist by confirming that despite taking place in the Arrowverse franchise, Superman & Lois isn't set on Earth-Prime, but rather an undesignated Earth in its Multiverse.

As Superman & Lois continues with a new continuity, it still begs the question about Supergirl and whether Benoist, who starred as the heroine for 6 seasons, will ever appear on the show. At this year's Fan Expo Canada (via Brief Take), Hoechlin and Tulloch were asked by a fan about Benoist's Supergirl and if there are any plans to have Kara appear in Superman & Lois. While Hoechlin praised his TV cousin, Tulloch revealed something interesting about Benoist:

"We have not heard that rumor about her coming on the show. She has expressed interest to me in doing it, and I know that we would love to work with her again and Grant [Gustin] and everyone else. I just don't know...ever since we started the show, COVID has been a reality which is why we haven't done any of the crossovers or anything like that, so we just can't speak to whether or not that's feasible."

https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Arrowverse-Clark-Kent-Lois-Lane-Kara-Danvers-Supergirl-Superman.jpg

Following the Superman & Lois season 2 finale, showrunner Todd Helbing confirmed in numerous interviews that if Kara were to show up one day, it would be a new take on the Girl of Steel with a different backstory. However, Helbing never specified if that meant another actress would be cast or if they left the door open for Benoist to show up as that world's Supergirl. While David Ramsey's John Diggle appeared in the Superman & Lois season 2 finale, the showrunner clarified that this take on the Arrow veteran doesn't have the exact same history as the Earth-Prime counterpart. So far, there has been no official indication that Superman & Lois season 3 will feature Supergirl in any capacity, as production won't start until next week.

If the Superman & Lois team hopes to have Benoist appear as Kara, it would have to be in the foreseeable future as the Supergirl star is set to headline her own HBO Max series, The Girls on the Bus. It's also worth taking The CW's new owner into account as the Arrowverse brand could very well be finished within the next 2-3 years. The Flash season 9 will be the show's last, and given the network's shake-up after Nexstar bought 75% ownership, there is no indication if Superman & Lois, Stargirl, and the upcoming Gotham Knights series will even get renewed for the 2023-2024 TV season. Hopefully, Superman & Lois is on the air long enough to make it possible for Benoist to guest as Supergirl at least once, even if it's as a new iteration of her Arrowverse character.


I remember Bitsy revealed Melissa wanted to appear back when Superman & Lois was launching.

Thanks for the info. From what I read this looks like nothing more then a rumor which Elizabeth Tulloch didn't even know about. She said that Melissa had some interest appearing on the show which means nothing. In a way I would like to see her as supergirl but not on that show. I would prefer she go on STARGIRL which kicks off their third season tonight. Be there or be square.;)

No just no! I really hope this is just Bitsy’s desire to work with Melissa again and not that she thinks Helbing’s ideas are good. This from Helbing is why.
Superman and Lois being set on its own Earth will allow the creatives to drastically reinvent the Girl of Steel, which is something that Helbing is excited to tackle should the opportunity present itself. "Yeah, it would not be the Supergirl from the Arrowverse, it would be our version so we would invent a new backstory for her," Helbing explained. "The same way that we did with Lucy [Lane], General Lane, and John Diggle, the same way with John Diggle" He continued, "They may be their doppelganger and they may look exactly the same. But it would be a completely different story."
What they did with Lucy Lane wasn’t cool IMO and I wouldn’t want them to have the opportunity to do the same with Kara, note the word “drastically” is used. I don’t trust the S&L showrunners one bit to in anyway honor the shows that made it possible. The petty part of me continues to hope S&L gets canceled after season 3 and Melissa is unavailable due to other comments.

I'm sort of the same mind.While I still like Superman & Lois(but hate cutting the ties to the Arroweverse),I would rather Supergirl appear on Stargirl(will be watching the season 3 premiere in about a hour and half) or in this upcoming final season of The Flash.The Flash would be my top choice right now given her friendship with Barry.

With that said,I wouldn't not watch if Melissa appeared on Superman & Lois but unless it was Earth Prime Supergirl ending up on the S & L Earth(like Barry did in Season 1 of Supergirl),I would rather a recast if S & L did its own version of Kara like with Sam and Morgan Edge.I didn't like what was done with Lucy either.Watching the same actors play a different version of their characters when we were sold S & L was going to be on Earth Prime makes them feel like pod people to me still and that includes Superman & Lois themselves.Recasting makes it easier for me to buy them as different versions of the characters.

Titans showrunner previews Titus Welliver's arrival as Lex Luthor

It turns out the Bosch star is a huge fan of DC Comics, and barely had to be convinced to play the infamous supervillain.

By Christian Holub
September 11, 2022

Casting Titus Welliver in Titans was not a hard sell. Though best-known for playing the hard-nosed titular detective on Bosch, Welliver is actually a big comics fan — as Titans showrunner Greg Walker discovered when he called the actor to pitch him on playing Lex Luthor.

"You usually have to do this whole dog-and-pony show to get an actor to do the show," Walker tells EW over Zoom. "But when I called to kind of lure him in, I could barely get a word in. We were talking on the phone and he was just walking through his library, telling me about all his Wolfman/Perez Titans editions. He's a giant, giant fan. He'd watched every episode of the show, and could tell me about certain stories, certain shots. It was the most unexpected call I've ever had."

https://imagesvc.meredithcorp.io/v3/mm/image?url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.onecms.io%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fsites%2F6%2F2022%2F09%2F06%2FTitans-Season-4-090622.jpg

Welliver's Luthor, who you can see in a first-look photo above, poses an interesting challenge for the Titans. Despite being one of the most infamous supervillains in the DC canon, he's still just human. His threat is intellectual and psychological.

"He has a very sensitive, thoughtful approach to evil and power. You know what he's done, what he's capable of doing, except like many of those people, he's personable. He doesn't have a cat on his lap. Yeah. He's curious, which I think is very interesting about his character. He wants to know about people and what makes them tick, and how they're different from him. He sees the world through the lens both of his own power and his own inadequacy, and tries to compensate for both."

Luthor is particularly threatening for Superboy. Conner (Joshua Orpin) was created from a combination of Superman's DNA with Luthor's. This season, Conner will finally have to reckon with what that means.

"We're really going deeper in all these characters and shaking them up," Walker says. "What shakes Conner up is an identity story. He's explored his Superman self, but he has not really explored his Lex self. What does that mean when you do? What happens when you give that self the keys to the car? Does it start driving the wrong way at rush hour 100 miles an hour?"

Check out the first look photo above. Titans season 4 premieres on HBO Max this November.


Jon Cryer made a fun little tweet about starting the bearded Lex Luthor trend.lol

Personally,I think this is great casting and as a Titans watcher looking forward to this Superboy storyline with Lex in Titans Season 4.
