The upcoming Superman television series has just cast an old flame of Clark Kent.
Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui will be a series regular on Superman and Lois in the role of Lana Lang, a figure from the hero’s younger days growing up in Smallville.
When her friends moved away, she settled in the quaint town and got a job as a loan officer at the local bank, but becomes reacquainted with Kent at a particularly difficult point in her life.
Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) will be reprising his role as the iconic superhero, which he has played on various television shows since 2016 – most recently taking part in the ambitious crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Elizabeth Tulloch (Grimm) will play Lois Lane, a journalist for the Daily Planet newspaper and Clark Kent’s wife, with whom she has two sons: Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin).
The series will see the original comic book power couple coping with being working parents – particularly difficult when there are super villains on the loose.
Lana Lang has previously been portrayed in live-action by Kristin Kreuk (Beauty & The Beast), who played the character in eight seasons of Smallville.
