Superman And Lois Chad L. Coleman Explains What Makes Bruno Mannheim Such A Compelling Antagonist, And How He Differs From Arrow’s Tobias Church

If The Walking Dead actor Chad L. Coleman playing a villain in a DC TV show from The CW sounds familiar to you, that’s because he played crime lord Tobias Church back in Arrow Season 5, who met an unfortunate death at the hands of Prometheus. This time, Coleman is involved Superman and Lois Season 3 as Bruno Mannheim, a longtime nemesis of the Man of Steel from the comics. Ahead of this new season’s premiere, I spoke with Coleman about what makes his version of Mannheim such a compelling antagonist, as well as how this character differs from what Church brought to the table in Arrow.

According to the official character description from The CW, Superman and LoisBruno Mannheim is known to the people of Metropolis as “a local hero” and “a philanthropist who has revitalized the struggling neighborhoods of the city.” But like his comic book counterpart, Chad L. Coleman’s Mannheim actually heads the criminal organization Intergang, albeit in secret, and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane has been trying for years to uncover evidence of his illegal activities. During my conversation with Coleman, I asked him what makes him such a worthy antagonist to throw into Superman and Lois mix, and he answered:

I think more than anything, it’s the socio-political layers that speak to situations and circumstances going on in the world that ground it even more. It really grounds it in something that people can identify with and makes you rethink certain characters and how you perceive them. This man makes a very compelling case for a different perspective on Superman and Lois. That’s what they kept saying, he’s the kind of guy that you’re going, ‘Yeah, he’s very sensible. It makes sense. It’s true, it’s true. And that aspect of it… there’s a lot of power behind it, it gives it a different relevance. It’s still escapism, but it’s more of a hybrid.
