The latest entry into the Arrowverse ‘Superman & Lois’ is currently filming, but there is news that a new character from the pages of the comics is being added to the series.
According to Deadline, actor Adam Rayner will be joining the cast of the upcoming series as Morgan Edge. The series describes the character as “an intelligent, eloquent and impassioned self-made mogul who’s innate ability to motivate is the means to his success and others’ demise.”
Morgan Edge was created by comic book legend Jack Kirby in Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen in 1970. He was the head of the WGBS multimedia conglomerate that, at one point, owned The Daily Planet. He has also been connected to frequent Superman villain group Intergang. From the character description, it looks like the more villainous persona will be used.
Adam Rayner is known for his roles in series like Hawthorne, Mistresses and Tyrant.
