With the conclusion of the 5-part “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, fans inevitably had a number of questions about where things are at with this new universe, what happened to various characters, and what plans never came to fruition.
TVline.com caught up with Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim to find out the answers to some of these questions.
After Tom Welling’s Clark Kent was seen in episode two of the crossover, we never saw him or his Lois again. So what happened? Are they still alive?
“I absolutely can confirm that they’re still alive, they’re still living their happy ending,” Guggenheim reports. Previously established to have given up his Kryptonian powers to lead a normal life as a family man, “Clark is getting the hero’s ending he deserves.”
While Tom Welling and Erica Durance both returned to reprise their roles from “Smallville,” Michael Rosenbaum revealed on Twitter that he had been approached to return as Lex Luthor, but had knocked back the offer.
“We had a version where he would have been in the scene [on the Kent farm] with Tom [Welling], and then the clock ran out on that [due to Welling’s availability],” says Guggenheim. “I then had the idea of having [Rosenbaum] and [Supergirl‘]s Jon Cryer have a scene together, which would have been really, really cool.
“It’s a bummer,” Guggenheim concedes. “Michael is definitely the one that got away.”
