Both are suiting up for the big CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover event this December on The CW. Tom Welling from SMALLVILLE is also set to appear as Clark Kent, it has not been confirmed if he also will have the “S” on his chest
One question that has been repeatedly asked concerning the upcoming CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover on The CW. Would Tom Welling from SMALLVILLE reprise his role as Clark Kent and maybe even suit up? Now we have an answer to one part and it is yes.
Welling is set to reprise his SMALLVILLE role as Clark Kent in the CW’s upcoming DC Arrowverse crossover. He will be joining two other actors who have played the Man of Steel, Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh that will both be suiting up as Kryptons last son..
This will be the first time that Welling will return to the role since the ending of SMALLVILLE. It is not known yet if he will done the symbol for HOPE on his chest.
The upcoming DCEU film Shazam! is set to explore the DC Extended Universe’s history and there are rumors around that the Seven Deadly Sins will appear in the movie. Obviously there will need to be someone to play them, hence this new casting announcement.
A new report has come out that claims Smallville alum, John Glover has boarded the BIG CHEESE adaptation in an undisclosed role. The actor is no stranger to playing a bad guy after starring as the diabolical Lionel Luther in the aforementioned The CW series and it’s easy to imagine him lending his voice here.
What are your thoughts about this announcement?
The upcoming Greg Berlanti series, Titans, is adding more cast members to its lineup. Brenton Thwaites (Gods Of Egypt) was recently cast as Dick Grayson, the original Robin, and he’ll be joined by 24: Legacy’s Anna Diop as Starfire and Home And Away’s Teagan Croft as Raven. The latest news from Deadline says Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly have been cast as Hawk and Dove.
Minka Kelly is likely best known from Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. You might remember Ritchson from the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, but he was also Aquaman on Smallville. Hawk and Dove were originally brothers in the comics, but after Dove’s death, he was replaced by Dawn Granger, which sets up what the new series is going for here. The way these characters got their powers have always been a little sketchy, but I’m sure the series or the rumored potential spin-off will give us more information.
