Tom Cavanagh Set to Appear in ‘Superman & Lois’

Tom Cavanagh Set to Appear in Superman Lois

Despite not being connected to the larger Arrowverse, ‘Superman & Lois’ is easily the best CW superhero show in terms of quality writing. The show did have its ups and downs, especially last year.

After Nexstar acquired CW and the network was bound to be restructured, ‘Superman & Lois’ survived the onslaught during which many shows were canceled. This led to some of the main cast being let go, fewer writers and the episode count was slashed compared to previous seasons. Now after several months of filming the last season of ‘Superman & Lois’ has wrapped filming, ready for the Fall 2024 release date.

Speaking at FAN EXPO Philadelphia Tom Cavanagh revealed he is both directing and acting in the final season of ‘Superman & Lois.’

So what was interesting about the final season of ‘Superman & Lois’ — like, I like to [direct] their finales and their premieres, because you get so much more money, you know? So the finale for ‘Superman & Lois’ was taken up already, and so I said, ‘Well, I’m happy to not do it,’ which is when Todd was like ‘Well, would you play a role?’ And so that’s coming up, for those of you that watch ‘Superman & Lois’ — something that I’m happy to have done.

Cavanagh played multiple roles in the Arrowverse, primarily in ‘The Flash’ as Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash and Harrison Wells across several seasons. He also made appearances in crossover events across other Arrowverse shows like ‘Supergirl,’ ‘Arrow,’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow.’

Although playing Thawne seems like the most obvious choice, that likely won’t happen due to the budget cut. Fans are now betting that Cavanagh will likely appear as Wells, but considering that ‘Superman & Lois’ technically doesn’t take place in the same universe as the rest of the Arrowverse, it can also be a new role.
