    I'd love it if they rebooted Jimmy, I've been hoping for it since Crisis happened, and they already wrote out Mehcad Brooks...but I just don't see them doing it.

    I like Jimmy a lot so I hope they reboot the character with a new actor who fits the role. Clark needs a friend like him, plus Jimmy deserves it.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Ron Troupe ends up taking up the Jimmy role for this series.
    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!

    Judging by the casting breakdown, Ron seems pretty old though.

    Rather than filming a pilot and making an assessment first, due to the coronavirus delays Superman and Lois will be heading into full series production right away once things are up and running.

    Well, that's a positive .

    Given how successful Superman has traditionally been on TV, I think forgoing the pilot is probably a safe move. They can course correct on the fly. They've already got a solid Lois & Clark. Everything else is secondary.

    I can't help but wonder if a lack of focus on Metropolis is to not draw comparisons to National City on Supergirl.
    Yeah, its very important that this show stands apart from Supergirl.

    I'm curious what other villains show up since Supergirl seems to be hogging all his.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Superman_enemies. There is plenty to choose from. They just have to choose to be creative and bold, not rely on the same old, same old ones. Morgan Edge is a good start.

    I guess I'm a little confused. Does this mean they won't be shooting the pilot first? Elizabeth Tulloch already posted the pilot script online.

    Shows will film a pilot episode, review it and make decisions about it regarding what direction it's setting the series as a whole out on, and then refilm it once the show goes into full production with any changes they want to make. Smallville for instance filmed a pilot different than what made it to air, with Cynthia Ettinger playing Martha Kent instead of Annette O' Toole. So rather than Superman and Lois going through that process, it'll simply go into full production from jump.

    Got it. That makes a little more sense. Thanks.

    Buffy recast Willow after the first pilot. I think even most recently Stumptown recast Jake Johnson for someone else.

    They either must be really confident in the script and cast they have assembled or they really think they need this show to launch. I suppose here they have the two leads locked in, so they are a known quantity. I think as long as they are ok with the rest of the casting pretty much anything story wise can be adjusted as they go. CW casting has actually been one of its strongest qualities as the shows matured. Outside of a few missteps, I think they've done a really solid job of finding the right people for the roles.

    One advantage I had of Glenn Morshower is I hadn't seen him in much else and he looks more like an army general than does Dylan Walsh. But that's just me. I did like Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor and
    got past him being Alan Harper so I guess I'll have to wait and see if Dylan makes a good Sam Lane.
