According to Deadline, Parks will portray The Stranger, a mysterious villain dedicated to proving that the world does not need Superman to protect it. He joins previously announced cast members Emmanuelle Chriqui, Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch and Erik Valdez.
Aside from All American, Parks has appeared in Devious Maids, Next Caller, Yellowstone, The Crossing, Superstore, The Vampire Diaries and Lifeline.
Superman & Lois is the seventh series in The CW’s Arrowverse. Arrow, which kicked off the superhero universe, just concluded its eighth and final season. The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning and Batwoman were all renewed for new seasons and will return once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. The CW is currently mulling an order for a potential ninth series, Green Arrow and the Canaries.
Superman & Lois was ordered straight-to-series by The CW back in January, with pre-production still underway for the DCTV series. The CW’s Superman & Lois is developed by Todd Helbing and stars Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch. The new Arrowverse series is expected to debut during the 2020-21 TV season.
