It’s official, Tom Welling’s Clark Kent is to be reunited with his Lois Lane as Erica Durance has been confirmed to appear in DC TV’s upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
Durance starred as the Daily Planet reporter and the Man of Steel’s true love Lois Lane from 2004 to 2011 on Smallville after the character eventually appeared originally as a recurring role in Season 4 before becoming a main character from Season 5 to the series finale in Season 10.
This news comes hot on the heels of the confirmation of Smallville star Tom Welling being announced to reprise his role of Superman, adding to the numerous collection of Supermen set to appear in the five-episode crossover with Tyler Hoechlin as the Arrowverse’s main Superman appearing recurrently on Supergirl and Brendon Routh once again donning the cape and tights after thirteen years since Superman Returns along with his main Arrowverse role of Ray Palmer aka Atom.
Durance is also no stranger to the Arrowverse as she appeared in Supergirl Season 2 in the recurring role of Supergirl’s mother Alura. However, despite the character still being alive at the end of the season, Durance is only credited for the upcoming crossover as Lois Lane.
The set-up for the former Smallville stars returns is for fans of the former WB/CW series to see what the couple have been up to after the finale left them about to attempt to get married again and Superman flying off to save the day.
Other actors set to appear in Crisis on Infinite Earths, aside from the mainstay actors, are Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as Supergirl’s Clark Kent and Lois Lane, Jon Cryer returning as Supergirl’s Lex Luthor, 60s Batman series star Burt Ward in an undisclosed role, veteran Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy as a future version of the Dark Knight, Cress Williams as Black Lightning from his own CW series, and LaMonica Garrett, who appeared as Mar-Novu aka The Monitor in last year’s crossover event as well as minor appearances in all four shows, appearing as the Anti-Monitor who will be the main villain in the upcoming event.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will consist of five episodes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman and run from December 2019 to January 2020
