Eight years after the end ofSmallville, Tom Welling will play Superman once again.

The Smallville star is set to reprise his role duringthe Arrowverse franchisesCrisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. This will see DC Comics characters from other universes appear in the world ofArrow, Supergirl, The Flash,Legends of Tomorrow, and the newBatwomanshow. Its the most ambitious comic-book-style crossover to date,following storylines like the Flash/Arrow/Supergirl crossover Elsewords, which introduced Ruby Rose as Batwoman last year.

Tom Welling isnt the only Superman onboard. Hes joining Tyler Hoechlin (the version we see in Supergirl) and Brandon Routh, who previously starred in the movie Superman Returns. Presumably, theyll drop in a joke about his startling resemblance toLegends of Tomorrows Ray Palmer, who is also played by Brandon Routh.

Routh will wear a costume inspired by Alex Rosss art in the comic Kingdom Come, potentially hinting that this is the future of the character he played on the big screen. According toEntertainment Weekly, Welling will indeed be playing the Clark Kent we knew on Smallville.

The crossover will also feature voice actor Kevin Conroy as Batman, his first live-action performance in a role the 63-year-old actor has voiced since the 1990s.

Inspired by the popular 1980s DC crossover comic, Crisis on Infinite Earths will take place over five episodes of the five Arrowverse TV shows, starting withSupergirl on Dec. 8. We wont be surprised if theres some more fan-favorite stunt casting on the way.
