'Supernatural's Osric Chau Joins 'Crisis' Crossover - Is This the New Atom?

Yeah, that's an official shot released Friday of Brandon Routh as Kingdom Come Superman (or a version of him) from the upcoming CW crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. Supergirl's episode will air Sunday, December 8, Batwoman's episode will air Monday December 9 and The Flash will help out Tuesday, December 10, while Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will round it out on Tuesday, January 14.

Just because Rosenbaum won't play his Smallville version of Luther in Crisis on Infinite Earths, that doesn't mean the villain won't appear in the crossover event at all. And it's one that fans may not have expected to hear.

Though this marks the first on-screen reunion for Welling and Durance since Smallville's series finale, the latter previously dipped her toe into the Arrowverse with a run as Supergirl's dearly departed (...but not) mother, Alura Zor-El. THE FLASH will follow on Tuesday, December 10th, and then the event will go on a bit of a holiday hiatus. Additionally, Birds of Prey's Ashley Scott as Huntress.

It's also worth noting that Skarsten is now playing Alice on the new Batwoman set to debut on The CW this fall.

So far, Crisis on Infinite Earth includes two versions of Superman and two versions of Lois Lane.

In the comics, Crisis on Infinite Earths was a 12-issue maxiseries from April 1985 to March 1986, written by Marv Wolfman and pencilled by George Pérez. This results in a call to action for numerous major DC superheroes, including Superman, Supergirl, and The Flash - though the latter two characters ended up dying in the battle in two of the most iconic moments in DC Comics history.
