Lana Lang Is Coming To ‘Superman & Lois’

There might not be any filming going on in the Arrowverse right now, but that hasn't stopped a bit of casting news from coming out.  A very familiar name has been added as a series regular for the upcoming Superman & Lois series.  Deadline reports that Emmanuelle Chriqui has been cast as Lana Lang.

The report says that, in this series, Lana Lang is described as "the loan officer at Smallville Bank who stayed in Smallville when others left for something bigger and brighter. Lana re-establishes her friendship with her old friend, Clark Kent, during one of the most difficult periods in her life." She will also go by the name Lana Lang-Cushing. Could that have something to do with this difficult period in her life?

Smallville fans will remember that Lang was played by Kristin Kreuk for several episodes.  If you recognize Emmanuelle Chriqui, she recently appeared in a show I talked about a lot on the podcast, Fox's now defunct The Passage.  My guess is, she won't be dodging vampires this time around.
