The cast of The CW’s big DC crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths continues to expand, with IGN reporting that Stephen Lobo (Supernatural) has been cast in the role of Detective Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre.
“Fans of the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic know the Spectre plays a pivotal role,” states Arrowverse executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “We’re thrilled Stephen is our Jim Corrigan.”
Created by Jerry Siegel and Bernand Baily and debuting in More Fun Comics #52 in 1940, Jim Corrigan is the human host of The Spectre, a supernatural avenger tasked with destroying all evil. The character previously appeared in NBC’s short-lived Constantine TV series, where he was portrayed by Emmett Scanlen.
The five-part Crisis on Infinite Earths will bring together Supergirl, Batwoman, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Arrow, along with guest appearances from characters from Black Lightning and past DC shows Smallville, Birds of Prey, The Flash 1990, and Batman 1966.
Crisis on Infinite Earths is set to air across five nights, beginning with Supergirl on Sunday, December 8th and taking in Batwoman on Monday, December 9th and The Flash on Tuesday, December 10th, before concluding with Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Tuesday, January 14th 2020.
