Jeremy Davies joins The CW’s Arrow-verse crossover event
Following the recent casting of Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, TVLine reports that Lost alum Jeremy Davies has been cast in a villain role for The CW’s highly-anticipated annual Arrow-verse superhero crossover event. Davies is set to play the role of Dr. John Deegan, a doctor at Arkham Asylum in Gotham City. In addition to Davies, Cassandra Jean Amell has also signed on to appear in the crossover as Nora Fries, the wife of the classic DC comics villain Mr. Freeze.
The CW recently set the dates for the annual Arrowverse crossover, with this year’s storyline heading to Gotham City, a place previously off-limits to The CW. The crossover will start with The Flash on Sunday, December 9. Arrow will continue the story on Monday, December 10, before it all comes to an end in Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is sitting out of this year’s event, and Black Lightning has yet to establish any firm links with the Arrowverse.
The crossover event stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash along with guest stars Ruby Rose as Kate Kane/Batwoman, Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane.
This story will mark Ruby Rose’s debut as Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman. While Kate is Bruce Wayne’s cousin in the DC Universe, the Batman isn’t expected to appear in this story or anywhere else in the Arrowverse any time soon. That said, Batman does exist in this world, and Oliver Queen called him out by name last season on Arrow.
