Do we have our first look at Lois Lane in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event? It certainly appears that way at present.
The photo below comes via Melissa Benoist’s official Instagram page, and it features herself alongside both Tyler Hoechlin (Clark Kent / Superman) and also Elizabeth Tulloch, who will be playing the famed reporter over the course of Elseworlds. Tulloch is best known for her work over on Grimm, and there hasn’t really been all that much said about Lois’ role in the crossover just yet.
What we’ve been able to figure out, at least so far, is that this event is certainly going to be all sorts of weird. For starters, you’re going to be seeing Stephen Amell as The Flash and Grant Gustin as the Green Arrow, something that was teased recently in another photo. You’re also going to have Superman in the iconic black suit from the comics and then also Batwoman (Ruby Rose) to go along with all of this. LaMonica Garrett is also going to be appearing as The Monitor. We imagine that in due time, a lot of this may make a little bit more sense, but at the moment, we’re certainly not at the point where it does. It feels a little bit more right now like a series of cool, but disconnected reveals.
The crossover event is set to happen in December, and we feel like come next month, we may start to get a few more different teases surrounding what’s coming. The CW knows that crossovers can tend to bring back big ratings, hence why they plan such ambitious castings and reveals for them. It’s basically akin to a movie that they’ve spread out over the course of three different nights. It could have even been longer, had they decided to include Legends of Tomorrow this time around. They did not, so the Legends are going to be doing their own thing instead.
Excited about seeing Tulloch as Lois Lane, or anything else in particular with the crossover? Share right now in the comments! (Photo: The CW.)
