The Arrowverse’s Elseworlds Crossover Will Feature An Iconic Smallville Location


Despite the next Arrowverse crossover, “Elseworlds,” being just under two months away, excitement is already reaching critical mass due to all of the teasers dropping as of late. Actually, this is to be expected because the monumental event is filming as we speak.

In fact, things have been heating up considerably this week, especially after the first teaser poster showing Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin swapping places as Green Arrow and the Flash hit the web. Thrilling as that was, we’re all left wondering what’s on the horizon for Kara Zor-El.

Well, thanks to a recent Instagram post made by Melissa Benoist herself, we were able to see her character sharing a tender moment with Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane on a farm looking eerily similar to the one made famous by Smallville.

Fortunately, another upload to that very social media platform by Benoist confirmed everyone’s suspicions when Grant Gustin could be seen on the porch of the iconic exterior location. And if you require visual evidence for yourself, know that both photos can be found in the gallery below.

Truth be told, we shouldn’t be too shocked by this homage because, don’t forget, each series making up the Arrowverse shoot in Vancouver, the very same place where Smallville set up shop in its day. Of course, the producers could’ve chosen any farm, but you have to admit no other would’ve been as special.

Seeing Lois and Clark taking up residence in a bucolic environment makes me ponder if this particular iteration of Superman will be influenced by, well, Dan Jurgens’ run on the Superman: Lois and Clark comics published right before the Rebirth era kicked off. In those, the Last Son of Krypton donned a black costume, something that’ll carry over to “Elseworlds,” so you can see why I’m making the connection.

This fall’s Arrowverse crossover begins on Sunday, December 9 with The Flash, continues on Monday, December 10 with Arrow, and wraps up on Tuesday, December 11 with Supergirl.
