Hot on the heels of the news that Tom Welling will be suiting up as Superman for this December’s huge Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, now comes word that Welling’s Man of Steel will be joined by another familiar face.
Via Deadline, it’s been confirmed that this Smallville iteration of Superman will be joined by Erica Durance reprising her Lois Lane role from that beloved series. Durance’s Lois will appear in all five episodes of this hotly anticipated crossover.
Erica Durance’s Smallville take won’t be the only Lois to feature in Crisis, mind, with Elizabeth Tulloch once again picking up as Lois Lane opposite Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman. And Welling and Hoechlin won’t be the only Supermen in the crossover, for Brandon Routh – who famously played the character in Superman Returns – will be donning the famed blue and red duds once more.
For the eagle-eyed of you out there, you’ll be well aware that Erica Durance has already appeared in the all-encompassing Arrowverse as Alura Zor-El over on Supergirl. In Crisis on Infinite Earths, we’ll find out what Durance’s Lois and Welling’s Clark Kent have been up to since Smallville ended in 2011.
Now all we need is for Michael Rosenbaum to return as the nefarious Lex Luthor…
