The upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earth’s crossover just got even bigger, as another iconic Superman actor will return to play the Man of Steel. Smallville star Tom Welling will reprise his role as Clark Kent, with the crossover exploring the fate of the character ten years after the events of Smallville’s series finale.
The CW confirmed the news along with a statement from executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville. Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it,” said Guggenheim. “So when we first started talking about Crisis on Infinite Earths, our first, second and third priorities were getting Tom to reprise his iconic role as Clark Kent. To say that we’re thrilled would be a Superman-sized understatement.”
