‘Hard pass,’ Tom Ellis explains that he’s not appearing as Lucifer in Crisis On Infinite Earths

October 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

You may recall a few days ago (here) that reports had come in from Vancouver that Tom Ellis AKA Lucifer from the TV series of the same name was spotted on the set of the Arrowverse Crisis On Infinite Earths, causing fans to get all sorts of excited.

Lucifer, of course, is a DC Comics property albeit their darker offspring, Vertigo comics, so there’s no reason why, in a crossover event that is trying to tie together all DC properties for one massive fiver-hour event, he couldn’t appear.

With the rumour being he was spotted with Matt Ryan, who plays Constantine in the Arowverse, it actually made a lot of sense.

But now Ellis himself has said that he was in Vancouver to visit a friend and NOT to film anything for The CW. You can watch the video below in which he explains: “Right, OK, see… this is what happens. I go to Vancouver for the weekend to visit my friend for his birthday and now suddenly, I’m in a different show!”

He the added: “No. Hard pass, sorry… Sorry fans.”

Of all the confirmed names to appear in the upcoming event, he’s the second to say that, no, sadly he won’t be appearing with Samllville’s Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum also saying he’d not be in it (here).

Now many fans are still hoping that this is just smoke and mirrors and both will appear and we can’t say it hasn’t occurred to us… after all, Lucifer is also known as The King of Lies.

What say you all?

Crisis on Infinite Earths kicks off Sunday, December 8th on Supergirl, then continues with a Monday episode of Batwoman and that Tuesday’s The Flash. After a month-long holiday break, it concludes with the Jan. 14 episode of Arrow and a special instalment of Legends of Tomorrow.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
