Erica Durance joins Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover as Smallville Lois Lane

Erica Durance - Smallville - 01

It’s time to update your Crisis on Infinite Earths flow charts. Erica Durance will be joining as the version of Lois Lane she played on Smallville.

This may be slightly confusing if Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) runs into her as she has been portraying Kara’s mother, Alura Zor-El, on a recurring basis. But, of course, that could make for some fun explaining the deeper intricacies of the multiverse.

Durance will be joining her Superman counterpart, Tom Welling, as he has now been announced to be joining the crossover.

This crossover is beginning to reach the bursting point with how many characters will be appearing. All five series – Arrow, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and The Flash – will be involved. It will also be split over the winter break. Supergirl will kick things off on Dec. 8, Batwoman will follow on Dec 9, and The Flash will air on Dec. 10.

Things will then pick back up on Jan. 14 with Arrow, and will wrap up with Legends of Tomorrow on the same night.

The story is going to need every minute of all five of those hours to fit in all of these characters.
