The CW Conclave: Who should play Lois Lane in the Arrowverse crossover?

3 of 3

2. Aja Naomi King

It’s not easy to be a stand out on a show that stars Emmy, Golden Globe, and Oscar winner Viola Davis. But like her overachieving How to Get Away with Murder law student, Michaela Pratt, King commands attention.

Michaela is highly intelligent, competitive and, yes, a bit snobbish. She is determined, not unlike Lois, to bring her A-game and seek justice for others. Michaela isn’t easy to get along with, and she doesn’t want to be. It’s actually part of what makes her such a great character.

However, King also ensures that she isn’t one-dimensional. Despite often pretending like she doesn’t about other people, Michaela is a fierce and protective friend. She looks out for others, even when it’s not in her best interest. King would be a great choice to play the similarly hard-working and protective Lois.

King is also a CW alum. From 2012 to 2013, she starred as Dr. Cassandra Kopelson on the short-lived medical drama Emily Owens, M.D.

1. Ally Maki

Maki currently stars as Jess Kato on the TBS comedy Wrecked, which is airing its third season. She is no stranger to superhero television, though. This summer, she had a recurring role on Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger as Mina Hess, an environmental engineer who goes to great lengths in an effort to right the wrongs of the corrupt company she works for.

Mina is also in Tandy Bowen’s (Olivia Holt) corner when she desperately needs a friend. Fans of Cloak & Dagger know that Tandy is volatile and tends to act selfishly and that Mina, by contrast, is quite warm and compassionate.

The odd coupling comes to affect both women in unexpected ways, and Maki shows off her range as Mina’s personality rapidly and radically shifts near the end of the season. Hopefully, Maki can show off that range again (this time for DC) as the complex Lois Lane.
