Things are moving forward in a totally amazing direction for this year’s Arrowverse crossover. While the Legends of Tomorrow are out, some DC heavy hitters are in.

After a season out on Supergirl, Tyler Hoechlin is set to return as Clark Kent to the Arrowverse in the upcoming three show crossover. He will also be in all three episodes of the crossover. Hoechlin’s performance as the Man of Steel has been praised by fans and critics alike. So bringing him into the crossover? It’s definitely exciting.

Long time Superman fanboy and Flash star Grant Gustin had this to say to Entertainment Weekly. “To see Flash and Superman together and to be one of the guys in the suits is something I’m definitely pretty excited about.”

He also added that he’s glad that the team-up is happening on television as well as in the movies. “It did feel like something they would always save for the features, to be honest. But I feel like the Arrowverse has kind of been changing that stigma with the whole TV is the lesser medium. I think it kind of doesn’t matter these days with the streaming and content’s kind of everywhere. So, it is cool to see us kind of rise to even another level and bring all of us together for these crossovers. It’s pretty epic.”

That’s not the most exciting thing, the most exciting thing is that Lois Lane will make her Arrowverse debut.

On bringing Lois to the Arrowverse, Supergirl showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said, “We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse. This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and amazing addition to our universe of DC characters.”

Casting for the role will soon begin.

We here at 4YE are hoping that older actresses will be looked at for the role. Given context clues in Supergirl plus the apparent age of Lucy Lane in the first season of the show, we’re looking at actresses who should be around Calista Flockhart’s age.

Just. Saying.

The three-way Arrowverse crossover will air on December 9th, 10th, and 11th at 8/7c on the CW.
