Cassandra Jean Amell, wife and producing partner of “Arrow” star Stephen Amell, has been tapped to play Nora Fries in The CW’s annual Arrow-verse DC/WBTV crossover.
Nora Fries is the wife of Batman villain Mr. Freeze and first appeared as a character in the 1990s “Batman: The Animated Series”. While we know the crossover event will introduce Ruby Rose’s Batwoman and Gotham City, none of the CW series has yet or plans to incorporate Batman himself into the narrative.
Amell joins just-cast Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane in the three-night event which runs from December 9th-11th. The casting comes as Matt Reeves has reportedly handed in his first draft of “The Batman” script.
