‘Crisis on Infinite Earths': Erica Durance to Return as ‘Smallville’ Lois Lane for The CW’s Mega-Crossover
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” is now a “Smallville” reunion. A day after Tom Welling boarded the mega-crossover to bring back his version of Clark Kent, The CW announced that Erica Durance would return as Lois Lane.

For those keeping score: That now makes three different versions of Superman and two separate Lois Lanes for the five-part event, which kicks off in December. The crossover will pick up the “Smallville” characters some 10 years after the show went off the air.

Smallville,” which featured a pre-Superman version of Kent growing up in Kansas, aired for 10 seasons from 2001-2011. The first aired on The WB before it merged with Upn to create The CW.

Crisis On Infinite Earths: Smallville's Tom Welling & Erica Durance to Appear

Kayti Burt Sep 20, 2019

The Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event will check in with Tom Welling's Clark Kent almost 10 years after the end of Smallville.

The CW superhero verse has always had excellent, meta casting, but they are going to the next level with this year's big crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths. The network just made the announcement (via TVLine) that Tom Welling, aka Smallville's Superman, will be appearing in the five-part event, which is set to air in December. Welling will reprise his role as Clark Kent, and the crossover will "reveal what happened to Clark Kent almost ten years" after the Smallville finale.

“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville,” Arrow-verse executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a statement, recognizing just how much the noughts WB show has meant to superhero TV and the Arrow-verse in particular.

Tom Welling To Reprise ‘Smallville’ Clark Kent Role In Arrowverse Crossover On the CW

Tom Welling To Reprise ‘Smallville’ Clark Kent Role In Arrowverse Crossover On the CW
And then there were three. Tom Welling is set to reprise his Smallville role as Clark Kent in the CW’s upcoming DC Arrowverse crossover, joining two other actors who have played the Man of Steel, Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh that are already set to portray the character in the crossover.

Talk started over the summer that the Arrowverse producers were looking to feature multiple versions of Superman in different time periods during the Infinite Earths event, with Welling, Hoechlin and Routh all on the wish list.

While Hoechlin and Routh already are members of the Arrowverse — Hoechlin recurs as Superman on Supergirl, while Routh plays Ray Palmer/The Atom on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow — making their recruitment easier, getting Welling to reprise his signature role was not an easy proposition as he had been reluctant to revisit the character.

J.J. Abrams Reportedly Being Offered His Pick Of Dceu Movies

J.J. Abrams officially signed an exclusive new deal with Warner Bros. this week, which We Got This Covered has heard means WB hopes to put him to work on the Dceu before long. The director has previously successfully relaunched the Star Trek franchise for Paramount and the Star Wars saga for Disney and now they want some of that magic brought to the DC universe. And to make it happen, we’re told the studio is offering him his choice of projects.

Sources say that Warner Bros. is leaving it up to Abrams to pick whatever appeals to him, though they’re currently hoping he’ll choose one of the three following movies: a Justice League reboot, another Superman film or Green Lantern Corps. We’ve been informed that it’s unlikely Abrams will go for all three, but it’s definitely possible that he’ll end up helming one of them.

The DC Universe Is Going to Hell

Jim Dandy Sep 12, 2019

Year of the Villain culminates in a war between Luthor and the Batman who Laughs in Hell Arisen.

Over his seven years as a comic book writer, James Tynion IV has gone from cowriting Batman backups with Scott Snyder, to launching some genuinely terrifying creator-owned horror books, to helming Justice League Dark, and partnering again with Snyder on the core Justice League title. And while he’s collaborated on event comics before, he’s never had one of his own. That ends in the winter, as he joins new DC arrival Steve Epting (Captain America) to bring us Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen. The book matches Apex Lex Luthor, a powered up and hyperpredatory version of the classic Superman villain, against the Batman Who Laughs, a Jokerized version of Bruce Wayne from the Dark Multiverse.

Only the Batman Who Laughs has brought some friends. As seen

Should Tyler Hoechlin Get a Chance at a Superman Movie?

Seeing as how so many people still revere what the late Christopher Reeve did, and can’t make up their minds as to whether Henry Cavill is loved or hated, it makes sense that another name should be added to the list for consideration when playing the part of Superman. As Filiz Mehmedova from Digital Spy has announced Tyler Hoechlin, who’s played Superman in the Arrowverse, hasn’t even bothered to watch any of the Superman material that’s out there since he didn’t want his own performance to be marred or influenced in any way by what had come before. But because

Here’s How Bruce Wayne Factors Into Titans’ Season 2 Premiere

Similar to how The CW’s Supergirl had to introduce its own version of Superman at some point, Titans had to do likewise with Batman. After all, there’s really no way you can produce a series including the likes of Dick Grayson and Jason Todd without acknowledging their mentor.

As you should recall, Titans‘ first season finale did include the Dark Knight, albeit in a fantasy world created by Trigon. While there, Dick had to deal with his worst nightmare, that being a Batman gone berserk. As such, the Caped Crusader who’d lost his moral compass wound up being played by stuntmen draped in shadow.

Now that season 2 has officially kicked off, the show has introduced its iteration of Bruce Wayne who’s played by Iain Glen. Maybe the producers had to wait until Gotham was off the air to get their hands on the unmasked half of the equation,

Shazam!’s Zachary Levi Wants To Take On Superman In The Sequel

After the well-publicized behind-the-scenes turmoil that seemed to follow Justice League every step of the way, the DC Extended Universe has undergone something of an overhaul in recent years, and now seems more focused on telling standalone stories than forcibly tying everything into the same overarching narrative. This creative rethink brings the likes of The Batman, Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad, but there are still huge question marks surrounding the future of one of the studio’s marquee characters.

The big screen future of Superman has been under debate for a while now, with conflicting reports surrounding Henry Cavill’s tenure as the Kryptonian superhero. It was rumored that the actor was done playing the character after the in-development Man of Steel 2 was seemingly quietly abandoned, but Cavill has continually expressed his interest in staying on as the Big Blue Boy Scout.

Rob Liefeld Says Superman Is Boring And Current DC Comics Should Be Vaporized

By now, I’m pretty sure you’re well aware of how opinionated Rob Liefeld can be. In his defense, he has every right to express his views online and has been in the comic book industry for decades. Given the latter point, people are bound to listen whenever Deadpool’s co-creator speaks up – it’s just that he sometimes rubs folks the wrong way.

To be fair, I do like Rob, even if I disagree with some of the comments we’re here to discuss today. It seemed like this all stemmed from concern involving the corporate shuffling over at Warner Bros. and AT&T, but then it snowballed from there.

Before long, Liefeld let the Twitterverse know about his current thoughts regarding DC Comics and Superman as a whole, first saying the following about the publisher itself:

“Time for new Crisis at DC….just vaporize it and begin again.

Iron Man Statue in Italy Pays Tribute to Tony Stark's Endgame Death

Iron Man Statue in Italy Pays Tribute to Tony Stark's Endgame Death
Avengers: Endgame came out almost six months ago, but its ramifications are still being felt across the pop culture landscape. And now Americans can't be the only ones to blame for taking this all a little too seriously. An Iron Man statue has been erected in Italy that pays tribute to Tony Stark's ultimate sacrifice at the end of this blockbuster sequel. And it's truly something to behold and geek out over.

This statue honoring the memory of Iron Man went up in the town of &#160Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany, Italy. It is titled 'Man of Steel', which is usually a moniker reserved for DC Comics' Superman. But Tony Stark deserves that distinction as well. The Statue was sculpted by Daniele Basso for the 'Oltre Verso' art exhibit that debuted on August 9. There is a plaque that accompanies this jaw-dropping work. It reads as follows.

Michael Rosenbaum Credits Smallville For Arrowverse’s Success

Over the last few years, we’ve got used to having a glut of superhero TV shows on the airwaves, but back in the 2000s, practically the only one around was Smallville. First debuting in 2001, at a time when the comic book cinema craze was just about to kick off, the Superman prequel series lasted for 10 years on The CW. Nowadays, the network is obviously home to the ever-growing Arrowverse, which is also based off DC comics.

For Sv’s Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor, the Arrowverse’s success can be credited to Smallville as it was the first of its kind. During a panel at Fan Expo Canada, which he attended with co-stars Tom Welling and Laura Vandervoort, Rosenbaum spoke about the “cinematic” nature of their show, saying:

“A lot of fans loved Lois & Clark, but this was cinematic. This was the first time a TV show that

Does Batman: Arkham Knight Becoming A Free Ps Plus Game Hint At Sequel Announcement?

Sony has announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers in September. The addition of the final entry in Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy has been warmly received, with the 2015 title a still-impressive graphical powerhouse that plays beautifully. But could Arkham Knight getting some attention be a hint that Rocksteady are finally ready to announce their follow-up?

It’s been more than four years since their last full game (leaving aside the brief Arkham Vr), and over that time we’ve been busy speculating what’s up their sleeve. By far the most common theory is that Rocksteady are hoping to do for Superman what they did for Batman. Prior to the release of Arkham Asylum a decade ago, no developer had ever truly captured the essence of the Caped Crusader in a video game, and to date there’ve been no genuinely great Superman titles.

Superman Races Oliver Queen In New Elseworlds Deleted Scene

This December, the Arrowverse reaches its biggest crossover yet in the form of “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” As well as bringing together the casts of all five CW DC shows – six, actually, including Black Lightning – numerous guest stars from across the DC multiverse will drop by. While we await this must-see event, then, let’s relive a deleted scene from 2018’s Arrowverse crossover, “Elseworlds.”

If you recall, “Elseworlds” saw Oliver Queen and Barry Allen have their superpowers swapped due to crackpot Arkham Asylum doctor John Deegan’s messing around with reality with the Book of Destiny. The pair traveled to Supergirl’s Earth-38 and got some help from the Girl of Steel as well as her more famous cousin, Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman. And in this newly-released deleted scene, Supes helps Ollie get to grips with his newfound superspeed.

Though not terribly substantial, this is a nice little character beat,

Class of 1989: Celebrating the Gateway Horror, Makeup Effects, and Family-Friendly Frights of Little Monsters

  • DailyDead
[We're celebrating some of the most memorable horror and sci-fi movies of 1989 this month in Daily Dead's Class of 89 retrospective series! Check back on Daily Dead throughout the rest of August for more special features celebrating the 30th anniversaries of a wide range of horror and sci-fi films!]

Since I started contributing to Daily Dead right around the time the “Class of…” series hit the late ’80s, I tend to focus on movies that made an impact on me when I was a wee lad. Last year I focused on the light-hearted fantasy epic (with a bit of a horror streak) Willow, and the year before I took a look at the extreme S&m, incestual splatterpunk masterpiece (with a bit of a horror streak) Hellraiser. With these serving as the cinematic touchstones of my formative years, you can see why my personality tends to be a little all over the place.

For my Class of ’89 entry, I somehow found a movie from that year that A) represents a beloved movie from when I was a kid, B) has the whimsical, fantastical appeal of a movie like Willow, and C) subverts the notions of what it means to be

Brandon Routh And Courtney Ford Exit Legends Of Tomorrow As Series Regulars

DC and Marvel fans have been getting quite the shakedown this week. First, we had the news that Spider-Man will no longer be in the McU and now, we’re learning that Legends of Tomorrow will be losing two of its stars next season, as Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford will step down as series regulars at some point during the upcoming run.

The real-life husband and wife acting duo star as Ray Palmer/the Atom and Nora Darhk in The CW series, and the EPs of the show, Phil Klemmer, Grianne Godfree and Keto Shimizu, sent this exclusive statement to Deadline about the pair’s departure:

“Brandon and Courtney have been invaluable members of the Legends family. They have always brought a level passion and collaboration to their characters and to the show — both on and off the screen – that we deeply admire and for which we are eternally grateful.
