Though this marks the first on-screen reunion for Welling and Durance since Smallville‘s series finale, the latter previously dipped her toe into the Arrowverse with a run as Supergirl’s dearly departed (…but not) mother, Alura Zor-El.
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” kicks off Sunday, Dec. 8 with an episode of Supergirl, then continues with a Monday episode of Batwoman and that Tuesday’s The Flash. After a month-long holiday break, it concludes with the Jan. 14 episode of Arrow followed by a special installment of Legends of Tomorrow (which premieres at midseason).
Previously announced casting includes Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as Supergirl‘s own Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane, while Legends of Tomorrow‘s Brandon Routh will pull double duty as the Kingdom Come version of Superman. (Kate Bosworth… is on The I-Land.)
Preceding her stint as Supergirl‘s Alura, Durance’s post-Smallville credits included five seasons of Saving Hope (on which she starred and served as a producer) plus guest spots on Charlie’s Angels and Harry’s Law (as “Wonder Woman”).
