Make way, Arrowverse! Lois Lane has officially arrived. The CW has cast Grimm star Elizabeth Tulloch to play the Daily Planet ace reporter in this December's three-show crossover between Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow.
Previously, Tulloch played Juliette Silverton/Eve across all six seasons of Grimm. Her past credits also include Portlandia, The West Wing, The Artist, Parkland, Concussion and more.
Lois will be joined by her paramour Superman, with Tyler Hoechlin reprising his role from Supergirl Season 2. She will make her debut alongside Kate “Batwoman” Kane, as played by CW newcomer Ruby Rose. Rose was cast in the role last month.
“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse," Supergirl producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said in a statement last month. "This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and amazing addition to our universe of DC characters.”
Lois isn’t the first Lane to appear in the Arrowverse. Supergirl Season 1 introduced her father General Sam Lane (Glenn Morshower) and her sister Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan). Though General Lane was positioned as an antagonist who ideologically opposed Supergirl in many ways, Lucy was a frequent ally.
DCTV returns to The CW this fall with The Flash leading the charge on Tuesday, Oct. 9 with its Season 5 premiere at 8 pm ET/PT, followed by Season 2 of Black Lightning at 9 pm. Supergirl will follow the next week on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 8 pm, with Arrow the next day on Monday, Oct. 15 at 8 pm. Finally, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return on Monday, Oct. 22 at 9 PM. The highly-anticipated crossover will air over three nights, starting on Sunday, Dec. 9 through Tuesday, Dec. 11.
