And Tom Welling makes 3! Tom is set to repeat his Smallville job as Clark Kent in the CW’s forthcoming DC Arrowverse crossover. He will be joining two different on-screen characters who have played the Man of Steel, Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh.
Talk began once again the late spring when the Producers were hoping to highlight numerous variants of Superman in various timespans. The “wish list” for Infinite Earth included Welling, Hoechlin and Routh.
“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville. Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it,” he said. “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.” – Arrow co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim
Welling could show up as Superman or he might only appear as the alter ego Clark Kent. Hoechlin will suit up as Superman, putting on the iconic cape.
The MEGA-CROSSOVER event is titled ” Crisis on Infinite Earths” will join the whole Arrowverse establishment – Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman – Starting in December and finishing in January, this will be the most highly anticipated 5 episodes.
