Tom Welling is best known for playing a young Clark Kent on Smallville, which aired on The CW between 2001 and 2011. The actor portrayed Kal-El before his time as Superman. Now, Tom Welling is reprising his Smallville role for Crisis on Infinite Earths, which will also feature Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh as other versions of Superman.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed that Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Oliver made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
In addition to the regular cast members of each Arrowverse series and Tom Welling, Crisis on Infinite Earths will also feature LaMonica Garrett as the Anti-Monitor, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, Tom Cavanagh as Pariah, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne and Johnathon Schaech as Jonah Hex. Burt Ward is also on board in an undisclosed role.
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
