Emmanuelle Chriqui Cast as Lana Lang
Emmanuelle Chriqui, famous for The Passage, Wrong Turn, and several other appearances, will be joining the CW lineup. The latest DC series to hit the channel will be Superman & Lois, and they now have their Lana Lang.
Superman & Lois
Perhaps one of the most iconic couples to come out of DC Comics, these two have gotten more than one series at this point. So it’s really no surprise to hear that CW is going to be launching a series once again.
Superman & Lois is getting the executive treatment as well. What does that mean for eager fans? It means we’ll be getting the show faster, for one thing. The show is going straight-to-series, meaning they’re skipping the whole process of filming a pilot and instead just going to head straight towards filming the first season.
Tyler Hoechlin has, unsurprisingly, been cast in one of the leading spots, alongside Elizabeth Tulloch (Lois Lane). And they are now joined by Emmanuelle Chriqui. Also joining the crew will be Jordan Elsass, who will be playing Jonathan Kent.
As for behind the scenes, we have an impressive team to look forward to. Berlanti Productions will be the big name behind the scenes, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Todd Helbing, Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schechter.
Who Is Lana Lang?
Fans of certain productions (including Smallville) likely won’t be asking that question, but let’s address it anyway. She’s a decently well-known supporting character, making appearances in Superman’s series, as well as Supergirl and others.
Though perhaps she’s most famous for being a teenage love interest for our leading hero (Clark Kent, in case it wasn’t obvious). She’s a classic “girl next door” character, and as such has frequently been portrayed as a younger character.
Her most famous appearance was during the run of Smallville, where Kristin Kreuk brought the character to life. Now it’s time to see what direction Emmanuelle Chriqui will take.
