Crossovers are like catnip to hardcore fans. There’s no denying the thrill of seeing fan favorite characters team up to save mankind, or the sheer scope and scale of it all. The DC Television Universe is no stranger to crossovers, and this year’s, which will introduce Ruby Rose as Batwoman, will also be introducing a pair of supporting characters familiar to DC fans.
Bitsie Tulloch, best known for her role in Grimm, has been cast as intrepid reporter Lois Lane; meanwhile Cassandra Jean Amell, known for her role in One Tree Hill, has been cast as Nora Fries. For those who do not know, Fries is the terminally ill wife of Batman villain Mister Freeze.
What role Lois and Nora will play in the crossover have yet to be determined.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow ‘Winn’ Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jess Rath as Brainiac 5, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz, Sam Witwer as Agent Liberty, Rhona Mitra as Mercy Graves, and Brent Spiner as Vice President Baker.
In the third season, Kara struggles with the loss of Mon-El after he is forced to leave Earth. When Mon-El returns, he reveals that he has time-traveled to the 31st century and founded the Legion, alongside marrying Imra Ardeen. J’onn discovers his father M’yrnn J’onzz is alive and Alex deals with her heartbreak after breaking up with Maggie. Kara and Alex’s new friend, Samantha Arias, is unknowingly another Kryptonian survivor, and begins a transformation from a loving single mother into the world-killing weapon known as Reign, who serves a coven headed by her biological mother Selena.
