Bitsie Tulloch Talks The Introduction Of Arrowverse’s Lois Lane In “Elseworlds”

We’ve all been talking about the insanity that is “Elseworlds”, but we’re really excited to see Lois Lane make her debut in the Arrowverse.

Lane will be played by Grimm actor Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch. From the behind-the-scenes photos, it looks like she and Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) are pretty happy together.

What can we expect from everyone’s fave reporter in the crossover?

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Tulloch shared a little bit about her Lois. Her reaction is pretty much all of ours if we didn’t have to live with the general weirdness that is Barry (Grant Gustin) and Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) lives.

“It was mostly just kind of funny because Lois doesn’t know them. She’s just kind of confused. She’s like, ‘Wait, you’re saying you’re this person, and you’re saying you’re that person? You’re saying you don’t normally look like this?’ So her reaction is different from Clark and Kara’s.”

It sounds like the SuperFam may be having a little fun watching Barry and Oliver flounder, if only for their actors amusement.

“There’s definitely a funny moment that the three of us — Clark, Kara, and Lois — are watching with the two boys sort of having an altercation, of course, because what they’re going through is weird for them. It was really fun. One thing I’ve been emphasizing in all my interviews is just how much fun I had filming, how much fun we all seemed to be having working together. The crossovers are awesome. It was just a really enjoyable experience.”

As for her chemistry with Hoechlin, it was pretty easy.

“Literally, no. That’s the other thing that was so crazy: The thing that probably worried me the most going into this was my chemistry with Tyler, because not only are the two characters iconic in and of themselves, but the relationship is so iconic. I was thinking, “Dear God, I hope I have great chemistry with this guy,” because I had never worked with him before. We really had great chemistry from the beginning. We loved working together, both kind of as friends and as romantic characters. I think we both were really, really vibing the relationship. ”

Look, we need our Lois and Clark relationship to have some serious chemistry. Otherwise, it’s just super awkward. It’s good to read that they did not have to work hard for it.

So how does Lois fit into the crossover as a whole?

“I’m not in Arrow, so I can’t speak to that, but she’s there a lot of the time with Clark or with Superman, but she is involved, especially in Supergirl. There’s a huge fight sequence, by the way, that’s awesome to the point where, you know, a lot of the time if you’re not in a scene or they’re not using you, you go sit down or go back to your trailer, and I stayed on set [to watch] them film it. It looks so cool! She’s an important part, actually, of that fight. In any episode of TV, there’s a problem, what’s the solution, and typically your main characters are trying to solve it, and she’s adding that to that, “All right, let’s figure this out.””

Lois kicking major butt? We’re here for it. Does it have anything to do with that big-ass hammer she had in the latest poster? We’ll have to wait and see.

“Elseworlds” will air December 9th, 10th, and 11th at 8/7c on the CW.
