IGN reports that Crisis On Infinite Earths has cast actor Stephen Lobo to play Jim Corrigan AKA The Spectre in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event.
The CW wouldn’t confirm to IGN if Stephen Lobo’s Jim Corrigan would appear as The Spectre, but it is speculated that it is a possibility given that the character has a role in the Crisis On Infinite Earths comic book storyline.
Crisis On Infinite Earths Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim teased Stephen Lobo’s role as Jim Corrigan to IGN, giving fans a hint in regards to what we could expect with his role in the highly-anticipated crossover:
“Fans of the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic know the Spectre plays a pivotal role. We’re thrilled Stephen is our Jim Corrigan.”
Jim Corrigan was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Bernard Baily. In the comics, Jim Corrigan is a human who becomes the host to The Spectre. The character is one of the heroes that joins in the fight against Anti-Monitor in Crisis On Infinite Earths.
Some of Stephen Lobo’s credits include The X-Files, The Good Doctor, Supernatural and the upcoming Snowpiercer television series.
