Tom Ellis of Netflix’s Lucifer could be involved with The CW’s crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, according to a new rumor.

Netflix might be involved in Crisis on Infinite Earths! According to a report from Screen Rant, there’s a rumor going around that Tom Ellis, who stars as Lucifer Morningstar in the now-Netflix original series Lucifer, will make an appearance in The CW’s crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

According to the report, Canadagraphs tweeted about a scene with David Ramsey, Matt Ryan, who plays Constantine, and Katherine McNamara for the upcoming crossover. They claimed Ellis was also there, as Lucifer, for the scene.

We’ve seen no other confirmation from Netflix or The CW that this is happening. It’s possible that it’s a secret, but I have to say Ellis joining the cast of Crisis seems a little too good to be true. There are tons characters from the DC Comics Universe and Arrowverse joining the crossover. Will Lucifer really be one of them?

There are a couple of holes in this rumor right off the bat. First of all, Lucifer is not a DC character. While the story shares many similarities with the DC characters and Arrowverse, Neil Gaiman created Lucifer independent of DC. So, there’s that.

Additionally, it seems odd that Netflix would let one of their characters go into The CW crossover without being compensated. Of course, we don’t know the full scope of the contract situation for the character, but if the The CW and Netflix can’t work out a crossover for Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I don’t know how they would work out Lucifer appearing in the crossover.

Screen Rant also notes Lucifer, which is filming season 5 right now, also films in Vancouver, where more, if not all, of the Crisis crossover is being filmed. There’s a chance that Ellis was not actually attending to film a scene, but he was just stopping by production to see some friends and colleagues from other projects or something.

While I have high hopes for Lucifer now appearing in Crisis, I am not allowing my hopes to get too high. There seem to be many obstacles in the way on this one for it to be real yet. Until one of the major news outlets confirm the story or Ellis or someone involved with Crisis shares the information, I’m going to keep my guard up so I won’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t happen.

If Ellis is involved with this project, we’ll likely find out soon. We’re about two months away from the start of the crossover, which will wrap up after the midseason break. Stay tuned for more information!

Lucifer should be back for its final season on Netflix in 2020. As mentioned, production has started on season 5. There will be 16 episodes in the final season, and we’re expecting the season to be split into two parts, although that has not been confirmed by Netflix.
