The devil is coming down to CW! According to a report from Canadagraph, Tom Ellis may be appearing as Lucifer Morningstar in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. He was seen on set dressed as Lucifer filming a scene with David Ramsay, Katherine McNamara and Matt Ryan. While is known that Lucider is a intellectual property of DC Comics, it is surprising that the CW would acknowledge the series. On the other hand, they did add Matt Ryan’s John Constantine to the Arrowverse so maybe the idea isn’t so farfetched.
Lucifer fans will surely be excited to see Tom Ellis back in the role following the finale of the series on Netflix. And DC Comics fans will also be gleeful to see what kind of banter will occur between Lucifer and Constantine. Perhaps they’ll talk about Constantine’s visit to Hell.
Although, Canadagraph has been credited for being a reliable source for all things Arrowverse, there has yet to be any confirmation from the CW or Tom Ellis himself. So this tidbit of info should (for now) be taken with the finest grain of salt. In the meantime, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
