Arrowverse: Tom Welling To Reprise Smallville Role For Crisis On Infinite Earths


Deadline is reporting that Tom Welling will be reprising the role of Clark Kent from Smallville in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis On Infinite Earths.

 

Crisis On Infinite Earths is the followup event to last years crossover Elseworlds, where Arkham Asylum doctor John Deegan rewriting reality, which results in Oliver and Barry swapping lives. In this new reality, the two heroes are the only ones that know that they are in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers.

 

Tom Welling starred as Clark Kent in ten seasons of Smallville between 2001 to 2011. He’ll be the third version to appear in the upcoming crossover.

 

Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim released a statement on the casting, saying:

For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville. Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it. So when we first started talking about Crisis on Infinite Earths, our first, second and third priorities were getting Tom to reprise his iconic role as Clark Kent. To say that we’re thrilled would be a Superman-sized understatement.

 

Aswell as the main cast members across Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon Routh will be appearing as the Kingdom Come version of Superman, Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Burt Ward (the original live-action Robin) will have an undisclosed role, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, characters from Black LightningKevin Conroy as an old Bruce Wayne, Johnathon Schaech will appear as Jonah Hex, John Wesley Shipp will also appear, Tom Kavanagh will appear as Pariah (a character from the Crisis On Infinite Earths comic) and LaMonica Garrett pulling double duty as The Monitor (introduced in last years Elseworlds) and The Anti-Monitor (big bad for Crisis On Infinite Earths).

 

Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover will begin with Supergirl (8th December 2019), then Batwoman (9th December 2019) and The Flash (10th December), then return in the new year to conclude on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (14th January 2020).
