Tom Ellis Says Lucifer Isn’t In Crisis On Infinite Earths

With all we’ve been hearing lately regarding “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” we can’t say we’re all that surprised when it comes to any guest role being announced. After all, this unprecedented crossover event spans far beyond the Arrowverse itself, as the producers have already acquired the services of Smallville‘s Tom Welling and Erica Durance, Birds of Prey‘s Ashley Scott and even Batman ’66’s Burt Ward.

That said, you couldn’t fault anyone living on Planet Earth for thinking Tom Ellis showed up to film a cameo as Lucifer Morningstar when he was spotted in the area of where “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is currently shooting. I know he technically plays a Vertigo character, sure, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to see such a beloved series represented.

As it so happens, Entertainment Tonight directly asked Ellis about this situation, and here’s how

5 DC Characters That Smallville Nailed (& 5 That The Arrowverse Did Better)

The Arrowverse may have overtaken The CW in recent years, but there was a time when Smallville was the only way DC fans could get their TV fix. That series is largely responsible for paving the way for Arrow and its myriad of spinoffs. In fact, the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will be paying homage to Smallville's legacy. Airing on The WB beginning in 2001, the Superman prequel series continued long past its creators' initial vision, lasting for a decade. It was one of very few shows to continue on when The WB merged with Upn to form The CW.

Smallville and the Arrowverse may both be TV adaptations of DC properties, but that is where the similarities end. There are certain characters that Smallville got completely right and others who didn’t really get their due until the Arrowverse came along.

Smallville is officially participating in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover with all of the Arrowverse shows.

Filming is currently underway in Vancouver, Canada as Welling and Durance have reunited on set.

The Titans Will Appear In Crisis On Infinite Earths

“Crisis on Infinite Earths” just keeps on getting bigger and bigger. Coming at the end of a weekend that’s already brought us news that a star of 1989’s Batman, Smallville‘s Justin Hartley and Lucifer‘s Tom Ellis would also be involved, new intel is now pointing to some of the cast of DC Universe’s Titans taking part in the Arrowverse crossover, too.

This news comes our way via YouTuber Pagey, who runs an account dedicated to covering DC TV content and has provided reliable info about the Arrowverse in the past. His latest scoop is that a few of the Titans cast – it’s currently unknown exactly which ones – will have a small cameo in “Crisis” via a short scene that will take place in Titans Tower.

The fact that this Titans cameo is set in the superhero team’s HQ adds to the credibility, as the

Justin Hartley’s Reportedly Signed On For Crisis On Infinite Earths

Just when we thought the cast list for “Crisis on Infinite Earths” couldn’t get any better, it’s been reported that Justin Hartley and Robert Wuhl are joining the Arrowverse event. Hartley will be reprising his role as Oliver Queen and the Green Arrow from Smallville, while, even more intriguingly, Wuhl will be returning as Alexander Knox from Tim Burton’s Batman. While we’re still waiting for official confirmation on this from The CW, our sources did previously let us know that Hartley was in talks to appear and now, it seems that our scoop has been confirmed.

For those not in the know, Hartley played the Green Arrow from season 6 of Smallville, teaming up with Tom Welling’s Clark Kent for a proto-Justice League. He was a regular on the show from seasons 8 to 10 as well, playing a key role in Clark’s journey towards becoming Superman.

Arrow Season 8 Review

This review is based off the season premiere.

At this point, what else can I say about Arrow?

When it first debuted back in 2012, DC fans everywhere wondered if it would measure up to Smallville, especially since this new guy named Stephen Amell had been placed under the hood instead of Justin Hartley. But what followed were years of incredible adventures that changed superhero television forever – and for the better.

I mean, not only did this new take on Oliver Queen amaze us all with a more rough-and-tumble style, but the series gave birth to what’s now known as the “Arrowverse,” which is also populated by The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Batwoman and Black Lightning. This unique vision has brought the DC Comics universe to life like no TV show – or movies, for that matter – have done before. It’s had a profound impact on people the world over,

New Synopsis For The Flash Confirms A Halloween Episode Is On The Way

Although there’s not always a guarantee of it, TV shows will tie into major holidays from time to time. When Smallville was around, the producers confirmed that the network sometimes mandated that Valentine’s Day or Halloween must be observed during a certain season, and I’m instantly reminded of the classic Supernatural episode, “A Very Supernatural Christmas.”

Speaking of Christmas, it seems like the Arrowverse is virtually guaranteed to check off that box each year. Then again, the December holiday often coincides with its midseason finales, so it’s probably often incorporated so that we get the sense of the show unfolding in somewhat real time.

When it comes to The Flash specifically, it’s now looking like Halloween won’t go unnoticed in a few weeks, as the official synopsis for “There Will Be Blood” indicates:

Michael Keaton’s Batman May Appear In Crisis On Infinite Earths

The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover is shaping up to be a veritable smörgåsbord of superhero action. Not only does it bring the many heroes of The CW’s Arrowverse together once again to face the Anti-Monitor, but it’s going to feature characters and actors from DC’s long history on the silver and small screens.

We’re getting Burt Ward from Batman ’66, Tom Welling from Smallville and possibly Lynda Carter from Wonder Woman. Brandon Routh is getting back into the cape, too, as Kingdom Come Superman, and longtime voice of Batman Kevin Conroy will finally be playing Bruce Wayne in live-action. But the surprises don’t stop there, as Michael Keaton’s Dark Knight may also appear.

Now, hold your horses for a moment. Currently, we have no confirmation that Keaton is physically going to show up in the crossover, but we’ve just seen a

Titans Season 2 Episode 6: Conner

This Titans review contains spoilers.

Titans Season 2 Episode 6

With nary a mention of him since his tease at the end of season one, Conner Kent swoops into Titans with a great episode that’s charming, sweet, and exciting for what it sets up for the series. Oh, and Krypto!

Picking up after the stinger scene from last season’s finale, “Conner” has a bare-assed Lex Luthor/Superman clone busting himself, and Krypto the Super-Dog out of Luthor’s Cadmus Labs. What follows is a road-trip of self-discovery as the young naïve boy learns his powers, taps into his anger, and hopefully develop into a good person.

I really commend Joshua Orpin on his performance as Conner. Playing a full-grown adult newborn is a minefield because it tiptoes along the lines of some very well-tread tropes.

Crisis On Infinite Earths Set Pic Offers New Look At Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent

As filming on “Crisis on Infinite Earths” continues, more set pics from the Arrowverse crossover are coming our way. So far, we’ve been well-fed when it comes to glimpses of the many Supermen that’ll be a part of the event. To date, there’s three Men of Steel involved – Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh, Smallville‘s Tom Welling and, of course, Supergirl‘s Tyler Hoechlin.

Our latest glimpse behind the scenes offers another look at Hoechlin in costume as Clark Kent, alongside Elizabeth Tulloch, his Lois Lane, who debuted in last year’s crossover “Elseworlds.” The actress shared the image on her Instagram account, clarifying in her caption that it comes from the first day of shooting on the crossover.

“#Tbt to our first day of filming as Lois and Clark on #CrisisonInfiniteEarths last week,” Tulloch wrote. “This crossover schedule has been bananas but the final product is going to be epic.

Lois Lane Meets Lois Lane In New Crisis On Infinite Earths Set Pic

A lot of our sneak peeks from the set of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” have focused on the many versions of Superman who’ll be showing up for the Arrowverse crossover. But this latest one puts the spotlight on the two Lois Lanes who’ll also be playing key roles in the DC TV spectacular.

Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch shared a snap on her Instagram account earlier today which sees her posing with Smallville‘s Erica Durance. Both actresses, of course, play Clark Kent’s So and, more importantly, the finest reporter at The Daily Planet. Tulloch joined the Arrowverse in last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover, while Durance – who’s previously appeared on Supergirl as Kara’s mother Alura – is reprising her role for “Crisis.”

Tulloch even gave the photo the perfect caption: “The New Adventures of Lois and Lois,” she wrote. Which reminds us: any chance of getting Lois & Clark

Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Birth of Blackbird

  • TVfanatic
What happened to you, Freeland?! You're not the same idealistic town anymore.

The town who once had to deal with Tobias's reign has now become a warzone for the impending Markovian War. And based on the situation on Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 1, the government is taking the fight seriously. They're building an army and fast!

The Pierces should be afraid of this Agent Odell world.

"The Book of Occupation: Chapter One: Birth of Blackbird" provided a time jump after the moment Agent Odell discovered the Pierces' secret identities on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 16.

Since that conversation, the government and the Asa seized control of the town, placed metahumans into confinement, and dealt with attacks from the Markovians.

Crisis On Infinite Earths Will Regard Smallville Season 11 Comics As Canon

If you read Superman comics during the days of the New 52, then you may agree with me in saying they didn’t always meet expectations. Action Comics and Superman may have stepped up their game when Rebirth came along, sure, but I often found myself having to get my Big Blue fix during that time period by way of team-up books like Justice League and Superman/Wonder Woman, or the out-of-continuity Smallville Season Eleven.

For those unfamiliar, Smallville Season Eleven did exactly what you’d expect from the title: it continued the story established by the TV show, thereby showing us the Superman that Tom Welling’s iteration of Clark Kent blossomed into. Along the way, he met other heroes The CW didn’t have permission to incorporate, namely Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. It was an incredible series, and I highly recommend that you go out and pick

New Superboy Photo Debuts Ahead Of Next Week’s Titans

While the cliffhanger to this week’s episode of Titans, “Deathstroke,” took our breath away and will force us all to spend the next several days wondering whether or not Jason Todd survived the fall, we can at least look forward to something positive coming from the next outing.

Believe it or not, we’ll finally get to meet Conner Kent Aka Superboy in the appropriately titled “Conner.” If you’ll recall, his bare ass was teased in the post-credits scene following the first season finale. But now, we’ll get to see actor Joshua Orpin suiting up as the iconic Kon-El.

In addition to this new image taken from the episode in question, so too can a synopsis be found below:

Raising Dion review – seven-year-old superhero is a cereal thriller

A boy with amazing powers, brilliant special effects and a sprinkling of Michael B Jordan make Netflix’s new superhero show perfect fodder for families ... and the child inside us all

Raising Dion began as a short film born of comic writer Dennis Liu’s desire for a more representative array of superheroes than has been gifted us by America’s homogenous “golden age”. It went viral and now the story of a black, widowed mother bringing up a seven-year-old boy with increasingly astonishing powers has been transmuted into a nine-part series on Netflix.

It has the charm and heart of Smallville, which filled the family-friendly slot for the last generation that Raising Dion is designed for. Newcomer Ja’Siah Young is another of those amazing child actors the Us seems to produce so effortlessly. And, as recently bereaved and unemployed mother Nicole, Alisha Wainwright manages to cover bewilderment, grief

Brandon Routh Teases Clark Kent Role In Crisis On Infinite Earths

One of the more exciting stories in the run-up to the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event this fall has been the on-set photos of different Supermen. Just this week we’ve seen Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh suit up, as well as Hoechlin with Tom Welling’s version of the character. Now, Brandon Routh has revealed that he’ll be appearing as Clark Kent in the Arrowverse event, and that the reporter has had a major promotion at the Daily Planet.

Routh shared a photo, available below, on Instagram of himself as Kent, standing in front of a sign reading “Clark Kent: Editor-in-Chief.” The actor also followed this up with the caption: “Look who I found during a recent visit to the #DailyPlanet.” Although Routh’s appearance as Clark may only be a cameo, given that he’ll presumably be in Superman mode for most of the special, it

Wentworth Miller In Talks To Return As Captain Cold For Crisis On Infinite Earths

Crossovers are a time for bringing back old fan favorities, and that’s definitely true of “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” The Arrowverse’s latest event is the biggest one ever, as can be seen from the presence of multiversal stars like Smallville‘s Tom Welling on the cast list. And here’s another another popular face from The CW-verse’s past who could be returning for the superhero extravaganza: Wentworth Miller Aka Captain Cold.

We Got This Covered has been told by our sources that the former Legends of Tomorrow star is in talks to show up in “Crisis.” This info comes from the same sources who previously let us know about Welling and Kat McNamara taking part before their involvement was made official, so there’s no reason to doubt it. We should stress, however, that Miller’s just in talks at the moment and it’s not 100% that he’ll drop by.
