I would not be surprised if they move it to Metropolis in a few years once Supergirl runs its course.
    Not to mention it echoes Rebirth Superman where the emphasis was on the farmlife instead of Metropolis, which is what Action was for.

    Edge is probably going to be the b-side villain like he was on Supergirl.

    Supergirl seems to be hogging Lex.

    Metallo and Parasite are dead but they could Post-Crisis that away.

    Toyman is a no-go but you can get around that with Prankster.

    They haven't done Mongul or Brainiac. I think we'll probably see Zod at some point.

We still get that classic brains vs brawn Superman vs. Lex set up without using Lex. And who better to face Superman in his first season of a full blown Superman TV show than his actual first supervillain?
    I wonder how they'd do Humanite. Just have him body swap for a while until he ends up in an albino Gorilla that's basically the Solovar CG model from Flash with a big brain sticking out of it?

    Once Superman's show is up and running they'll likely shift Lex there.

    Plus there are only so many ways you can make Vancouver look like a different city for each show.

    I wonder if they recast Morgan Edge. The odd thing about him on Supergirl is he was never any sort of threat to Supergirl. He was mostly a Lena Luthor adversary. Which seems odd that a supporting character
    would have a villain exclusive to them.

    The John Corben version of Metallo seems to be dead, but with Lena Luthor as a Metallo in an alternate reality there have been 5 other versions of Metallos in the Arrowverse so a 7th Metallo is still possible.
    And while the Rudy Jones died, there was also a second Parasite on Supergirl in season 4, so having a 3rd Parasite would too be possible.
    Basically just because a villain showed up on Supergirl doesn't mean an alternate version can't show up on Superman. And with Crisis some of them might not be dead after all.

    I don't think they used him as well as they could have on Supergirl.

    The rumor is they're bringing Adrian Pasdar back (I believe he's still in Vancouver).

    Having Superman face off against the guy who flies and was the voice of Iron Man is kind of amusing.

    I'm crossing my fingers and toes Adrian returns as Morgan Edge.

    Can’t tell if Cryer’s response is teasing him being in this or not. Leaning towards probably-hopefully?? *fingers crossed*

    If Jon Cryer is also in this, it'd make me more excited to give it a chance.

    Will Hoechlin finally get to exchange a single line of dialogue with his Luthor ?

    I guess there's no way to know if it's the same one that's been posted online.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Too bad Warner Bros. screwed themselves out of using Jimmy Olson. Can't really see James Olson returning to the Daily Planet. 1. The actor doesn't want to play the character anymore. 2. The character owns his own newspaper.

    Not to mention 3. The character wasn't really a good take on Jimmy Olsen.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a little Post-Crisis retconning there to make James another character, thereby allowing a goofier Jimmy Olsen to appear.

    Hilariously this 100% confirms the validity of that leaked script from a few weeks back.
