Arrowverse crossovers are some of the most fun and freewheeling dates on The CW’s annual TV calendar, and this year’s Elseworlds event promises to throw more DC superhero confetti at the screen than ever. But it’s not just the good guys who should get all the attention, right?
The CW must think so, because Elseworlds reportedly will feature a baddie who’s so far only been hinted at in the Arrowverse: ex-Arkham Asylum inmate Roger Hayden, aka Psycho-Pirate, whom TV Line reports will show up in at least two episodes during the three-night crossover.
Canadian stage actor Bob Frazer reportedly will play the role of Hayden/Psycho-Pirate, who in DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths comics miniseries plays The Anti-Monitor’s emotion-absorbing, Medusa-mask-wearing accomplice. Psycho-Pirate is set to show up in both the Arrow and Supergirl episodes of Elseworlds, according to the report.
Topping last year’s Crisis on Earth-X crossover event, which captivated even the most cynical of Arrowverse fans, is definitely a tall order. But based on what we’ve already heard about the setup to Elseworlds — including the casting of LaMonica Garrett (Designated Survivor) as The Monitor — it looks as though The CW is diving even more headlong into the deep end of DC’s comic book lore-verse.
The Flash zips over for a special Sunday night appearance to kick off Elseworlds beginning Dec. 9, followed by Arrow the following night, and Supergirl to close out the series on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns) reportedly will co-produce and star in a new sci-fi thriller titled Genesis, a post-apocalyptic movie about a mother’s search for her missing daughter, according to Deadline.
Docudrama, commercial, and short film director Mike Lè Han reportedly will helm the film, from a script by Brian Michael Scully.
Bosworth appears to be on a sci-fi hot streak, given her recent lead appearance alongside Tyler Hoechlin in survival horror-thriller The Domestics, as well as her dual producing and starring roles in Netflix’s upcoming The I-Land. Bosworth and her co-producers are hoping to land the film at a major studio, so until then, there’s no additional info on other casting, or a release date.
