Though brief, Elizabeth Tulloch made her first official appearance as Lois Lane last night during the first portion of the DCCW’s “Elseworlds” crossover when Barry Allen and Oliver Queen, having had their lives and bodies switched, headed to Earth-38 to meet with Kara. The Girl of Steel, having recently left the DEO in lieu of keeping her identity a secret to the world, was working on the Kent farm alongside Tulloch and Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent before Supergirl and Superman headed to Earth-1 to help that universe.
Much of the Supergirl series pays homage to the past when it comes to Superman lore, but it’s no stranger to heavily borrowing from the Richard Donner films specifically. Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane even feels reminiscent of the version played by Margot Kidder in those films. And given how Hoechlin’s Superman has been received by some audience members, the question did arise at one point about the possibility of a Superman series starring Tulloch and Hoechlin.
For one, Earth-38 doesn’t have many superheroes outside of Supergirl, Superman, and Martian Manhunter. Now that Batwoman is confirmed to be on Earth-1, that door is shut. And while there had been talk before of a CW Superman series based around Hoechlin and Tulloch, that rumor was shut down. However, Elizabeth Tulloch recently spoke with TV Line in an interview where, among other things, she was asked about the possible foundation for a Lois and Clark series:
“Potentially, and it was something I sort of talked to one of the producers about. I think it’ll depend on how this is reviewed and a bunch of other external factors that nobody has really that much control over. I know Tyler and I would love to come back and work more together. We fortunately had great chemistry, which is not always a given.”
Like the rumor, Elizabeth Tulloch noted that the possibility of a Superman series would be based around how well the Elseworlds crossover is received by critics and fans alike, though it’s interesting that she mentions “external factors” that nobody has much control over. It is key, though, how Tulloch mentions great chemistry, and if the likes of Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder or Henry Cavill and Amy Adams have shown, chemistry is crucial when it comes to Lois Lane and Clark Kent.
Again, while Tulloch’s appearance in the first part of the Elseworlds crossover was brief, it’s entirely possible that she’ll show up in the Supergirl portion that will air tomorrow night. What did you think of Elizabeth Tulloch’s debut as Lois Lane so far? Would you want to see a Superman series with her and Tyler Hoechlin? Let us know in the comments below.
The “Elseworlds” crossover event continues tonight on Arrow at 8 P.M. and concludes with Supergirl on Tuesday at the same time on the CW.
