Smallville stars Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum say they haven't been approached about appearing in The CW's upcoming "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover.
"Whatever this Crisis thing you guys are talking about, it's not happening," Welling said at FAN EXPO Canada. "Sorry to disappoint you guys. Michael's doing it, but I'm not. [laughs]."
However, Rosenbaum quickly replied, "Hang on, hang on, hang on. No, he's messing around. First of all, the question about the Infinite Crisis thing, no one has even talked to us... So online when I go, 'I don't know what the hell they're talking about,' I don't know what the hell they're talking about! So we don't know anything about this stuff."
"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, while Rosenbaum played Lex Luthor.
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.
