Ehh...

My only big gripe with THE FLASH is that too many people know Barry's secret identity.

This year's Arrowverse crossover will not only introduce Ruby Rose's Batwoman, but it's now been announced that the three-night event will also see the return of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and the debut of Lois Lane.

I'm hoping against hope that Hoechilin will be wearing something much closer to the traditional Superman costume. I expect to be disappointed.

Ehhh....

Not thrilled about the casting, but not bothered by it, either. 

Jenna Dewan would have made a better Lois than Lucy.

(By the way, Jenna is older than Elizabeth by about a month and a half.)

DC announced that the three night Arrowverse crossover beginning December 9th is titled Elseworlds. (?)

Also, LaMonica Garrett (best known for his work on "Designated Survivor") has been cast as The Monitor, who helped the heroes of alternate earths battle the evil Anti-Monitor in the DC Comics crossover event Crisis On Infinite Earths.

Interesting....

-C!

I believe we saw in the Flash that the Crisis is in 2024... unless I'm misremembering.

Of course, it affected ALL times... so sure, it could happen in 2018 too. Maybe we'll even get a few more Legionnaires.

I'll give the show credit. They keep coming up with things that make me want to watch. I don't, but they still almost get me there.

How funny would it be if Cryer played this with a dead-on Hackman impersonation?

Im not sure if a Hackmanesque Luthor fits with the Lex in Lenas backstory, but Id be willing to put money on Cryers Luthor humming or listening to Eine kleine Nachtmusik at some point.

Let's hope he's better in this than he was playing Lex Luthors nephew in Superman IV. His "performance" was probably the biggest crime in that film.

Cryer probably played that part the way it was written. It was just a terribly written part. The intent seems to have been for Lenny to be Superman IV's "Otis," an overtly comical buffoon Lex keeps around mainly as contrast to his own, immeasurable genius. The result is something much, much worse.

In his autobiography, I believe that Cryer said he signed on to Superman IV to work with top-level stars like Hackman in a major movie franchise and did so without seeing a script, which is never wise. 

Even if he'd known, I don't think there's any way to have played that part without looking ridiculous.

Yes, the script was problematic (to say the least) but that doesn't change my opinion of Cryer and his acting abilities. Over the years, the only role I liked him in was when he played Ducky back in Pretty in Pink. I'll give him a chance, certainly, but I'm not overly optimistic.

Jon Cryer doesn't look menacing or even tough enough to play Lex Luthor. 

But he'll probably be a better Luthor than Jesse Eisenberg....
