This came after the website observed the iconic building in Melissa Benoist’s Instagram. Star Tyler Hoechlin along with Benoist and Elizabeth Tulloch had been filming in the “Kent farmhouse”. Hoechlin will reprise the iconic role of Superman from “Supergirl” series while Tulloch will be introduced as Lois Lane.
Even The Flash and Green Arrow will be heading towards Smallville since the image that caught KryptonSite’s attention featured Grant Gustin walking out of the house. When Superman was first slated to debut in “Supergirl”, many fans petitioned for Smallville’s Tom Welling, who reprised the role from 2001 to 2011. However, this did not happen, although the series has made references to Chloe Sullivan, a supporting character for Smallville.
The “Elseworlds” crossover is going to be massive, splitting the heroes across time and space in multiple universes, with The Flash and Green Arrow taking on multiple roles. (Including changing places with one another.)
The crossover event will see The Flash, Supergirl and Green Arrow coming together with a wide array of DC characters. In addition to Lois Lane and Superman, the event will also see the debut of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman along with appearances from Dr John Deegan, played by Jeremy Davies, Nora Fries and The Monitor.
“The crossover is freaking bananas,” Amell explained during a recent Facebook Live. “It’s crazy… I think that this will be the best crossover event that we do. And not just the best but the best by a really, really wide margin. And I think that last year was fantastic.”
“‘Crisis on Earth X’, I think that’s what it was called, that was pretty crazy and getting to play doppelgängers was pretty crazy,” Amell continued. “When Greg Berlanti first talked to me about why he wanted to do crossovers, it was because it’s for the fans. It’s so people can watch characters and scenarios that combine their favorite things on TV or introduce them to new things on TV. But you also get this license to do things that we could never do in the vacuum — especially on Arrow — that we can never do in the vacuum of just our show.”
“It’s awesome,” Hoechlin said of Lois being involved with the crossover earlier this year. “It’s really exciting to have a lot of these new characters popping into this one. The crossover has always been a huge event, but it seems like there’s a lot of new characters coming into it for the first time this time, so it should be a lot of fun.”
The three-night “Elseworlds” crossover will start with Supergirl on December 9 and will carry onto Arrow on December 10 and The Flash on December 11.
