The newest Arrowverse series on The CW, Superman & Lois, is finally returning for its second season in a couple of weeks. While the first season of the show saw Superman and his family emerging victorious in their showdown against Morgan Edge/Tal-Rho, the superhero and his beloved will have new challenges to face in Season 2 — and according to the showrunner on the series Todd Helbing, there will be various villains for Lois Lane and Clark Kent in the series’ second season.
Are you ready for the second season of Superman & Lois?
While appearing in an interview with SFX Magazine (via Gamesradar), Helbing revealed how viewers will quickly know what direction will the second season of the fan-favorite series will go and that there’s a big villain on his way that will be a “big headache” for Clark.
“The fans are going to know the path we are going down really quickly,” Helbing said. “In a really good way, the Superman issue he has is driving the issues he has as a dad. This is a particular villain, the more I talk about the more people are going to figure out who it is. But Superman is dealing with an enemy that is going to be a massive headache for him.”
Superman & Lois Will Have Multiple Villains!
Helbing continued, “There are multiple villains, really. Both villains affect Clark and Lois personally. We start out with one villain that is really more Superman, while setting up the Lois villain. They are not working together, but they hand off in a cool way this season. One of them comes to the forefront and, in a lot of ways, is more powerful than the other one. It will take the whole team, in a different way than last year, to stop this person.”
