Up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No it’s…Superman! That’s right Arrowverse fans, Tyler Hoechlin is returning to the CW. He is bringing his portrayal of Superman/Clark Kent to the upcoming crossover event, “Elseworlds”. Behind the scenes photos from the event are continuing to crop up, teasing the incredible event.
One big reveal from behind the scenes photos has revealed Superman will don the infamous black suit at one point. Those unfamiliar with the suit should know that this was originally the suit worn by Superman when he was resurrected. This came after his “death” at the hands of the monster known as Doomsday. Fan were left disappointed in the Justice League film when Henry Cavill’s Superman was resurrected without the black suit. Yet what will the black suit mean for the Arrowverse? Is Superman meant to fall at some point and come back in the crossover? Or will the suit be used for some other means, or by another Superman altogether?
The heroes of the Arrowverse seem to be heading to Superman’s roots, as he, Lois Lane (played by the recently cast and amazing actress Bitsie Tulloch), and Supergirl all appearing in set photos that depict the Kent Farm and homestead in Smallville. Star Grant Gustin was also spotted on set in social media posts behind the scenes, indicating the heroes will either take refuge or visit the Kent farm together during the crossover.
Superman Rumored Show
After the upheaval behind the scenes in the DCEU and with the fate of Henry Cavill’s Superman still a mystery, rumors are spreading that due to Hoechlin’s portrayal, the last son of Krypton may get to return to the small screen in his own spin-off series. While Supergirl continues to soar and carry the Kryptonian legacy in her own show, it would be amazing to start incorporating the larger DC Universe into the Arrowverse. This would include villains such as Darkseid, Doomsday and Lex Luthor himself. Everyone can agree we’d love to see Superman become more ingrained into the Arrowverse. Hopefully without taking away from the amazing work of Melissa Benoist and her turn as Supergirl.
The crossover is already promising so much. This news of Superman and his iconic family being integrated into the crossover prove that this Arrowverse knows how to handle the DC legacy. With shows like Gotham coming to an end one can only hope we get more shows like Batman and his entire Bat family in the Arrowverse. With the amazing Ruby Rose already bringing Batwoman into the Arrowverse, it’s only a matter of time before the franchise that began with Arrow turns into a masterpiece.
