Superwoman Actresses Who Have Played The DC Comics Heroine

Superwoman actress

Superman is one of the most recognisable superheroes, with many actors playing the DC Comics hero. He has a female counterpart in not just Supergirl but Superwoman, and more than one actress has played her onscreen.

Like with most DC Comics characters, there is more than one version of Superwoman and therefore, more than one actress has been used, like with the actresses who have played Wonder Woman.

In this post, we’ll review each Superwoman actress by breaking it down by character. Also, we’ll only be touching on the iterations of characters who have become Superwoman on screen in some form. We will not be touching on the comic characters who have NOT made any form appearance on screen, live-action or animated.

Lois Lane

Lois Lane, the primary love interest of Clark Kent Superman, has been known to become Superwoman and the actresses who have played Lois have often been tasked with playing the superhero alter ego.

Actresses who have played the Lois Lane iteration of Superwoman onscreen include:

  • Teri Hatcher (as Lois Lane Ultra Woman) in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
  • Erica Durance in Smallville
  • Christina Hendricks in All-Star Superman

Lana Lang

  • Kristin Kreuk in Smallville
  • Emmanuelle Chriqui in Superman and Lois (alternate version of Lana Lang)

Unknown Versions Of Superwoman

  • A gender-swapped Superman (Superwoman) appears in Justice League Action, and no actress is attached as the appearance is silent.
  • Gina Torres plays the Crime Syndicate version of Superwoman in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths – Torres also plays the same version of the character in the videogame Lego DC Super-Villains
