Batwoman's Luke Fox actor Camrus Johnson says his favorite is Black Lightning, scale involved in Arrowverse crossover left him in awe
"I'm so impressed by how they're bringing it all together! The amount of moving pieces, the number of actors, the amount of directors and crews and scripts all working at the exact same time? There's nothing like it, and sometimes I wonder how they all do it," Johnson told MEA WorldWide (MEAWW)
'Batwoman', the newest addition to the Arrowverse starring Ruby Rose in its titular role, sees actor Camrus Johnson portray the role of Luke Fox who, in Batman's absence, keeps Wayne Tower secure. He is Lucius Fox's son who will become Kate Kane aka Batwoman's on-ground assistance, tech support and friend over time.
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Johnson revealed an interesting spoiler about the biggest crossover event in the Arrowverse -- 'Crisis on Infinite Earths'. The crossover event's second episode will air as part of 'Batwoman' December 9 and Luke Fox is one of the main characters of the show to be featured in the episode.
Speaking about the event, Johnson revealed he was impressed by the scale of it. He said, "I'm so impressed by how they're bringing it all together! The amount of moving pieces, the number of actors, the amount of directors and crews and scripts all working at the exact same time? There's nothing like it, and sometimes I wonder how they all do it. It's going to be such a fun, highbrow, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy crossover and I'm really stoked for people to see it!"
He added, "Especially with all of the fun cameos and surprises for our viewers. The only teaser that I can give... is that Melissa Benoist (who stars as Supergirl) is hilarious to work with. Ya heard it here first!"
Johnson also spoke about his favorite superheroes in the Arrowverse and confessed that his favorite is Black Lightning. He explained: "My favorite hero has to be Black Lightning, and my cast knows this. He's such a powerhouse and his suit is so cool! Plus, he always reminds me of my favorite hero, Static Shock, and having a Black superhero is a big deal to me. To have a strong character like that on-screen and be able to see myself in him is an incredible thing."
Johnson also has favorite villains and said: "My favorite villain though... Harrison Wells in 'The Flash' Season 1 and 2, the Reverse-Flash and his long spread genius plan was a lot of fun to watch. But on a smaller scale, I love Hush in Batman. I mean a killer character by himself, but his relationship with Batman and his backstory that revolves around him makes that character that much more sinister and dangerous and I can't wait to see what may happen with him."
The next episode of 'Batwoman' will air Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. Here's The CW's schedule for the next big crossover: 'Supergirl' - December 8; 'Batwoman' - December 9; 'The Flash' - December 10; 'Arrow' - January 14 and 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' - January 14.
