Smallville alum Tom Welling may have teased his appearance in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover "Crisis on Infinite Earths."
Welling shared a video of himself on set in South Africa to his Instagram. Someone wrote in the comments, "I hope you're in Crisis on Infinite Earth's [sic]." Welling responded, "Duh!!!" While this isn't confirmation, Welling's statement can definitely be taken to mean that he's appearing in the crossover. However, whether he actually will remains to be seen.
"Crisis on Infinite Earths" is based loosely on Marv Wolfman and George Perez's 1985 comic crossover event of the same name. The Arrowverse version will see Kevin Conroy play an older Bruce Wayne, with Brandon Routh playing Kingdom Come Superman. Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, previously said he'd like Welling to appear in the crossover, while Arrowverse architect Marc Guggenheim revealed he was actively pursuing Smallville alum for the event.
Welling played the role of young Clark Kent on The WB's (now The CW) Smallville for ten seasons from 2001 to 2011. The character of Superman didn't appear until the series finale, however, and Welling only appeared as the character in one brief close-up scene. The only full shot of Welling in costume was done through post-production CGI effects.
Scheduled to air this fall on The CW, "Crisis on Infinite Earths" will involve Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Returning Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 pm ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary, Katie Cassidy as Black Siren, Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak, Joseph David-Jones as Connor Hawke and Ben Lewis as William Clayton-Queen.
