“We had conversations about how to best see Tom again,” says Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries of Part 2 of the Arrowverse crossover. Arrowverse boss Marc Guggenheim says Welling was excited to return to his roots and play a new version of Clark Kent. “We got on the phone with him and basically pitched him everything,” Guggenheim said, adding that Welling’s response was basically, “I love this. … You guys have basically written the one scene that I can’t say no to.” In fact, Arrowverse filmed at the same location where Smallville was originally filmed. “Tom was joking when he was there, ‘Oh, that cow recognize me,’” Dries recalls. “So it all felt very 10 years ago, in a great way. And so it just felt natural." ALSO: Brandon Routh says "I was very touched" when asked to reprise his Superman role for "Crisis on Infinite Earths."
