Jeremy Davies cast as Gotham Asylum Doctor

We are inching closer and closer to the premiere of the 2018-2019 season of the Arrowverse and all shows have been filming since July! That means the mega-crossover event is just on the cusp of filming and in some cases has already begun! With that, more and more details about the crossover are being discovered and today we have another glimpse into what the crossover will be about! Actor Jeremy Davies has been cast as Gotham's Arkham Asylum doctor, John Deegan. The doctor certainly doesn't live up to his profession though. He is described as:

Dr. John Deegan is a doctor at Arkham Asylum For the Criminally Insane in Gotham City, but he might just be crazier than the inmates he treats. His machinations will draw Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl to Gotham City.

This pretty much sets up the location for the crossover as whatever it is Deegan is up to and it draws the attention of the CW's trinity! Which Earth the crossover will take place on remains a hotly contested topic however. The DC crossover kicks off with “The Flash” on Sunday, December 9 at 8pm ET.

Let us know what you think of the news and which Earth you hope the crossover takes place on in the comments below and in the forum! Keep us advertisement free and visit the support page if you can!

Arkham desperately needs a better employee screening process.

I hope you are right, their are plenty of hero's on Earth 1, it would be nice to have a few more on Earth 38.

Also most of the Batman references on Earth 1 have been subtle, passing or off hand, while Earth 38 had made more direct reference to Gotham and Batman.

For example in Supergirl Season 2:

  • 1. When Superman saves a family from John Corben's drone Gotham is blatantly mentioned.
  • 2. Kara mentions that Clark worked with a masked vigilante who had tons of gadgets.
  • 3. When James lost confidence in his Guardian persona, Winn referenced the Bat-Ears with his fingers.



Quoting markhb:

Also, I'm strongly hoping for Earth 38, since I'd love for Batwoman and Kara to be able to play off of each other on an ongoing basis.

@amonson, I don't recall him being the Joker (but you may be right), but I DEFINITELY remember that being the real name of Doctor Destiny, who could attack people via their dreams! VERY interesting possibility given that Dreamer is on Supergirl this season! DREAM FIGHT!!!!!

Also, I'm strongly hoping for Earth 38, since I'd love for Batwoman and Kara to be able to play off of each other on an ongoing basis.
