I'd be shocked if they didn't pull that in. Mxy they could reuse and recast as well given his nature in the show. And the version of Parasite they used was an alien so they could always go a more traditional route. Intergang or Cadums could come back into play. They used Henshaw already, but they could rework that as well into a more traditional take if they were to do Reign at some point.
    I could honestly see Mxy changing his look for Clark since he probably has completely different intentions with him then he did with Kara.

Agree about the animated movies but those have a much smaller scope than live action counterparts
    I think DC is getting there. Krypton for a Cable show looked pretty great and spinoffs for that are rumored for HBOMax.

    I was already excited when i heard Clark and Lois were getting a show (even though I havent actually seen a single CW show) but now that I'm hearing it may be based on Rebirth Superman, I am fucking OVERJOYED

    Episodes 1 and 2 of Supergirl season 2 and the last cross-over, Elseworlds, will probably suffice in setting you up to know this Superman. Episode 22 of Supergirl season 2 just pisses a lot of people off and really doesn't add that much
    to the character so you could probably skip that one. Those are the only Superman appearances I can think of, excluding the shadow figure and boots on a table in season 1 of Supergirl.

    If Cryer's Lex carries over, it will totally be worth it. I think they killed off their universe's version of Zod. IDK about the others. I'd love to see him take on Parasite.
    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!

    Really feels like some people are just trying to go full doom and gloom, I mean the Flash got a show and he's still showed up in the movies, Batman is showing up in Titans there's that Pennyworth spinoff and Batwoman, but a Batman movie is still happening, point is the show is not a death kneel for the idea of Superman showing up in films.

    Wake me when Marvel does an animated duology on par with Death/Reign.
    That has pretty nothing to do with what he said but ok.

    Securing Cryer will definitely work in the show's favour. He won't even need to feature heavily, but having him reprise his Lex for this Superman should be cool.

    Okay. I'll keep that in mind.

    Hmmm... define "better". You're probably right, though.

As part of a long-term initiative. I consider that a threat to the real deal. Now you know, maybe it works out entirely different than what's in my head, and it'll turn out I overreacted. And if it does, all I can say is won't be the first time. I'll have a laugh about it and say I was wrong just as I have so many other times. But until I know for sure, I'm hella nervous and consider it a big problem with Jon at the forefront of the current problems.
    There's no way 5G sticks. It might just end up being a fancy version of the "Beyond" universe eventually (the only way I see it sticking at all), but if we got the trunks back, we're not losing Clark. And even if we do, it won't be for long. I would use Superman's absence from his books during "New Krypton" as exhibit A for that one.

    THIS. This is why I'm actually excited. Because with Clark finally being a lead character and not a support character, jobbing him to Kara will have consequences and they won't want to do that. So he'll finally get treated like he should. And if the show is successful, then he'll really take the lead - which would be amazing to see. Just imagine Superman being the new font-and-center head of the CW-verse. Depending on what they do, exactly, this could be the best thing to happen to the character: a nice long-form way to grow support for Superman and his world. And if we're just "crazy" lucky, we might see other Supermen from other universes pop in from time to time.

    Just had a thought... while I'd much prefer Brandon be Superman.... him a Jor-El would be interesting, for a short-term plotline.

    From what I remember Clark and Lois went to Argo or whatever to have the baby, and get some leave. Basically code for "he's likely coming back as a 10 or 12 year old." Hell they may even just use the merging of the Earths as a way to explain it comics style.

    That child actor is likely gonna be like Stranger Things age. Lucky for shows like this, the turn over rate for filming seems to be fairly short, so they could get in a few seasons before puberty hits.

    But seriously, I knew this would happen. It's like the biggest no-brainer in the world. Mix Smalliville and Lois & Clark.

    I was thinking they might merge the characters also.

    That's my thought. They merge the universes, but bump the timeline around a little bit with the merger to fit everything in together. The Post-Crisis Arrowverse timeline likely will need some massaging for everything to fit together. Arrow is 8 years, Superman's been active for 12 or maybe even 15 or so at this point.

    He may have already been cast. Amell posted a photo with the cast and a blacked out spot about Superboy sized.

    Looks like WB gave up on Superman.

    This is worst case scenario, tbh.

    I wonder if they'll do Arrow style flashbacks to see Clark's origin, how he and Lois fell in love. Lex could be like Slade, see them start as friends but become archenemies. And finally end with Clark finding Kara's escape ship.
