The Time Has Come for the Arrowverse to Cross Over with Smallville

Earlier this week, Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk was asked if she would be up for a reunion project, to which she answered with an earnest, “Yeah, absolutely. I’ve never thought about it, but that sounds like it could be a lot of fun.”

Of course, Kreuk isn’t the first former cast member of the young Superman series to express their interest in such an endeavor. Both Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum, who played Clark Kent and Lex Luthor respectively on the series, have entertained the idea of coming back together to tell more Smallville stories in animated form.

Even Justin Hartley, who played Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on the long-running show, said he’d be up for a guest stint on Arrow if the role was right. On top of all that, Erica Durance, who played Smallville’s Lois Lane, is already guest starring on Supergirl, which means she is obviously willing to continue to be a part of the DC television family.

So far, everyone one of Smallville‘s main actors who have been asked have indicate they’re willing to revisit the roles they famously played. But why stop at an animated series when we could have a full blown crossover with the rest of the Arrowverse?

In many ways, Smallville is the reason the Arrowverse exists in the first place. It’s the Godfather of modern superhero shows, and its success opened the floodgates for all manner of televised superhero fare. The series’ introduction of Hartley’s Green Arrow is what ultimately led to The CW green-lighting Arrow, a series that would, over time, birth an entire television universe of heroes. Now, after seven years of prosperity, four different shows and countless superheroes fighting crime in their costumes, it’s more than time for the Arrowverse to honor its predecessor by giving fans something they would love to see: a crossover/reunion episode.
