Superman and Lois Lan in Arrowverse Crossover!

HALLELUJAH!!!!! This is going to be off the hook!!!! is reporting that Superman and his companion Lois Lane will also be joining the Three Night Crossover event in December! The Man of Steel will be played by fan favorite Tyler Hoechlin again and his partner, Lois Lane, has yet to be cast! Executive Producers Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller of Supergirl had this to say about introducing the iconic reporter to the Arrowverse:

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.

Just when we thought that introducing Batwoman would take this off the hook, you now get to introduce Arrow and The Flash to Superman!!!! This crossover is lining up to be the best yet!

#25 Why only two out of three?Stealcat1000 2018-09-01 20:57
I just read that Lois is only in two out of three parts of the crossover. I can't help but wonder why and what the reasoning is going to be for that. Other than that concern I am really looking forward to this. After all for me Supergirl is my new Smallville but in some ways I actually like Supergirl more.

I have thought of an actress to play Lois Lane - I think Adrienne Wilkinson would be a good one I liked her in Xena (where she played - Livia/Eve).

I think Lois Lane should be played by Shelley Hennig!

this is just my opinion. just because Lois Lane as depicted as being white in comic's and previous live version's of the character. doesn't mean this live version of the character has to be white. iT should not matter wether actress is white, African American, Asian American, Japanese American, or native American.

It should go to who ever is right choice for the role.

this would be my choice's

1. Kate sachoff-Battle star Galactic
2. Zoe Suldana Guardian of Galaxy
3. Adrianne Palick The Orville
4. Joanne Kelly ware house 13
5. Genelle Williams ware house 13

I'm very excited about Lois Lane and the return of Superman! I just read an article on Tvline and they made several suggestions on who they would like for the role. Here are the ones I found interesting whether or not these actresses are available.

1) Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill)
2) Rachel Boston (Witches of East End)
3) Kristin Kreuk (Smallville, Beauty and the Beast) (I just love this actress, so I'm probably not thinking straight... )

And 2 suggestions of mine : Joanne Kelly (Warehouse 13) and Michaela McManus (Seal team)

I'm pretty sure I will be happy about the actress they choose. The producers have made great choices so far.

Kind of torn on this one. I like Tyler and wouldn't mind seeing Superman and Lois guest star a couple of times on Supergirl but, I'm not sure how well his appearance in the crossover will take off. It already seems like they have to really nerf Kara during the crossovers in order for her to not just overpower the villains right away or completely outshine the other superheroes. I can't imagine what kind of story they will have to set up with both Supergirl and Superman in it, in which one or both aren't relegated to being unconscious or incapacitated for most of the story in some way.

The worry that he will steal the focus should be an outdated one. It had been established he is a supporting character, but a very welcome one.
While this should be the case, it won't be while there are still constant complaints asking why he doesn't show up whenever there is any big threat, or when Supergirl gets injured, or when she leaves the Earth or when someone from his past arrives, etc., etc.

@Maryscountry - I agree that the actress needs to be in her early 30s (Tyler is only 30 but there isn't any rule that says she can't be a bit older) to go with the story told so far. But, I really don't have any ideas on who that should be :lol:

Looking forward to the crossover glad tyler is coming back as superman, would love to see him guest star in 2 or 3 episodes a season. Also I would love some guest stars from the FIRST Season to come in, Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli), General Lane (Glenn Moreshower). I wouldn't be fussed if Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan Tatum) didn't return I was never struck with her character (even though I accept she is a decent actress).

Don't know who I would like for Lois Lane i'll have to wait and see on that one.

My vote for Lois Lane would be Sarah Shahi. She was awesome in person of interest. She is good at playing strong women. I think she also looks like she could be related to Jenna Dewan so I think she could pass as Lucy Lane's sister.

Quoting Marysocontrary1:
All of your choices would have a hard time convincing me that they are Lucy Lane's older sister, when Jenna Dewan is 37. if Lucy hadn't already been established, then maybe but she was in the first season so anyone younger than 35 just doesn't make sense.

Also, they have Kara say at the beginning of every episode of Supergirl, that he was Superman by the time that she arrives, so Lois should already be a well established reporter. Also Cat talked about having worked with Lois, so yeah, no actress in her 20s for the role.

Quoting Zendar:
If they want to retain any hint of continuity with season 1, Lois should be played by someone over 40 who looks like she could be Jenna Dewan's older sister. This being The CW, they'll undoubtedly get someone too young.

Jenna looked like she was in her late 20s, just like the character she was playing, so as long as they find an actress who looks like she could be in her mid-30s, regardless of her actual age, they should be fine.
