Adam Rayner Cast As Morgan Edge In Superman and Lois

There’s a familiar villain coming to Superman and Lois. Deadline is reporting that Adam Rayner has joined the cast as media mogul Morgan Edge.

Within the comics, Edge has at times been Clark Kent’s boss, as well as the leader of Intergang, who had ties to Darkseid. It’s also worth noting that Edge has already appeared in the Arrowverse. Adrian Pasdar played Edge in Supergirl season 3, where he was arrested for various crimes. However, it’s unclear if those events are still in continuity after Crisis on Infinite Earths. Rayner will be a series regular, and Deadline describes his 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.”

Rayner is best known for starring in FX’s Tyrant, as well as The Saint TV movie. He has also had roles in Doctor Who, Notorious, and The Fix.
