David Rapaport, a casting director who cast Arrowverse show and other DC shows, confront that they are looking for young actors for the role of two teenage characters “Matthew” and “Ethan”.
Jon Kent as Matthew, a lot stronger as a character has grown a big following in DC comics. Damian as Ethan raises the question about the involvement of Bruce Wayne. The series is being pitched as the adventures of Man of Steel and the iconic Daily Planet reporter.
The Flash showrunner todd Helming holding the project as writer and executive producer along with Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns. Casting is in process for new characters with Superman and Lois thinking for the next film.
In the place of Damian for the role of “Ethan”, there are more potential candidates like Conner Kent or Chris Kent who easily fit in the role. Kents had adopted the idea of Clark, also having an adoptive son would be the compelling story coming full circle.
Major DC characters Superboy and Robin may be on their way as Superman and Lois spinoff has already cast and based on the Arroeverse audition call.
The CW developing its two new spin-offs. Green Arrow and Canaries will take Arroe-side of the Arrwoverse through the female vigilantes. With the Dark knight’s current absence in the Arrowvers, introducing his son as a big character without Batman’s involvement could be much of a reach.
Superman and Lois would have to clear Bruce’s absence while his son engages with Kent Lane family if Damian is what caused him to leave Gotham.
The Arrowverse is getting ready for Crisis on Infinite Earths and will start the next generation for Greg Berlanti’s DC TV franchise. The other spin-off is center on Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Superman and Lois Lane as they get a larger role in ever-growing shared universe.
