We'd better see him in the costume.
Smallville‘s Tom Welling (Clark Kent, Superman) and Erica Durance (Lois Lane) will appear in the DC’s Arrowverse thanks to a new five-part multiverse crossover event later this year.
Yet another “Crisis on Infinite Earths” event — and hey, we’re not criticising ’cause they’re really fun — will feature Welling and Durance portraying their beloved characters ten years after the events of Smallville itself.
“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville,” Arrow Co-creator and Executive Producer, Marc Guggenheim, told Deadline. “Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it.”
The crossover will feature additional incarnations of Clark Kent/Superman, played by actors Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns). This will be Durance’s second Arrowverse character; she’s previously played Alura Zor-El in Supergirl.
This Infinite Earths crossover will take place across all of the CW’s Arrowverse shows — Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman — across December 2019 and January 2020. Spanning eight seasons, this will be Arrow‘s final season.
