Tom Welling and Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kents Meet on Crisis Set
Superman’s future on the big-screen might be murky, but fret not: The CW has enlisted three different Men of Steel to make appearances throughout the network’s five-part Crisis on Infinite Earth crossover. It still isn’t clear if all three iterations of the character (played by Tyler Hoechlin, Tom Welling, and Brandon Routh) will share the screen at once. But now, we now know that Welling and Hoechlin will indeed have a scene together. Thanks to Lois Lane actress Elizabeth Tulloch, we have our first glimpse at this meeting of the Clarks.
Tulloch recently took to Twitter to share a behind-the-scenes look at Crisis’ Kent Farm set. With this, she’s given us a better idea of how Welling will appear when he returns to play Kansas’ favorite son. You can check out Tulloch’s image below.
At first glance, it certainly looks like Welling’s Clark towers over Hoechlin’s. But since Welling is standing closer to the camera, this might just be an issue of perspective. It also seems that the crossover aims to differentiate between the two Supermen by giving them unique wardrobes. Welling is clearly sticking to the plaid-loving farm boy look he popularized on Smallville’s earliest seasons. Meanwhile, Hoechlin is adhering to the dignified and professional appearance of The Daily Planet’s mild-mannered reporter.
Of course, this isn’t the Arrowverse’s first visit to Clark’s rural stomping grounds. Last year’s Elseworlds crossover also featured Kent Farm in a scene that was introduced with Remy Zero’s “Save Me;” which served as Smallville’s iconic theme song for 10 seasons. Returning to this familiar location is definitely going to be nostalgic for old fans the series.
