Crisis on Infinite Earths is Coming Fall 2019

The CW‘s “Elseworlds” crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl is over and throughout the entire event it hinted at an adaptation of a classic DC Comics event, Crisis on Infinite Earths. As Supergirl wrapped up, we now know next year’s Fall 2019 crossover is exactly that.

The event has been hinted at since the first season of The Flash where it was revealed The Flash disappeared during a “crisis.”

We’ve got a year to wait in anticipation.


The CW’s “Elseworlds” Crossover Gets the DC Comic Book Treatment

There’s a lot we still don’t know about this year’s Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash DCTV crossover event, “Elseworlds,” one thing readers are pretty clear on is what that title is a reference to. “Elseworlds” is the name of a popular line of comics from DC’s past that completely reimagined the worlds of DC’s greatest heroes. It’s a part of the company’s legacy, something that’s nodded to in a unique new image that’s promoting the three-night event.

Drawn by comic book artist Amy Reeder and designed to look like the cover of one of DC’s monthly comics, this illustration also includes the classic, all-lowercase “Elseworlds” logo. With LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor seen looming in the background, Reeder’s illustration portrays the heroes of the crossover—Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, Superman and Batwoman—seemingly battling each other. Beneath them, Jeremy Davies’ maniacal-looking Dr. John Deegan can be seen looking up at them in delight, suggesting he might be the cause of the mayhem. Fans will also notice that the Flash in the image is actually Stephen Amell, while Green Arrow is Grant Gustinsomething already teased through photos.

Reeder has drawn several highly regarded comics for DC, including the bestselling New 52 Batwoman series, which helped to define the Kate Kane version of the character.

Look for the “Elseworlds” crossover event to kick off on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST), then continue at the same time on December 10 and December 11 on The CW.

DC Releases a First Look at LaMonica Garrett as The Monitor

DC has revealed a first look at LaMonica Garrett who will play The Monitor in this year’s crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. The event is dubbed “Elseworlds.”

Marv Wolfman and George Pérez created The Monitor in the lead up to the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths and the character has appeared in multiple “Crisis” events since.

The characters is on of infinite power who has single-handedly kept the multiverse’s destruction at bay for millennia. We have no idea what role the character will play in the television event.

The story also debuts Ruby Rose as Batwoman, the first appearance of Gotham within the Arrowverse, the debut of Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, and Superman returns played by Tyler Hoechlin. There’s also Jeremy Davies as Dr. John Deegan, and John Wesley Shipp will return as The Flash. We’ve also seen The Flash and Green Arrow swap in a way.

The event kicks off on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST) on The CW and continues December 10th and 11th at the same time.

Things Are Switched Up in this Elseworlds Poster

This year’s Arrow/The Flash/Supergirl crossover and dubbed “Elseworlds.” A new image released has Arrow and the Flash on display… but that’s not the usual individuals under the masks.

Yes, that’s Stephen Amell as the Flash and Grant Gustin as Green Arrow. But, what does this mean for Supergirl!?

Looks like this even should be a fun one. “Elseworlds” debuts December 9th.

Superman Dons a Very Different Suit for Elseworlds

This year’s crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl is dubbed “Elseworlds” and will introduce Ruby Rose’s Batwoman. But, it also sees the return of Tyler Hoechlin as Superman. But, it looks like he’ll be wearing a spin on the traditional suit with a more black and white color palette.

Arrow’s Stephen Amell tweeted out the below picture featuring himself, Hoechlin in the new suit, and Grant Gustin on set.

While some will say this reminds them of Superman’s black suit from the 90s, it also has a tinge of George Reeve’s classic Superman suit with the colors inverted.

A First Look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman

We’re getting a live action Batwoman who debuts during The CW and DCTV‘s Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, crossover event. Ruby Rose is donning the cape and cowl and The CW has released the first promotional picture giving us an idea as to what we can expect later this year.

This Year’s Arrowverse Event Casts Its Villain

Things are getting bigger and bigger with each Arrowverse crossover and this year’s villain is no exception.

Jeremy Davies has been cast as Dr. John Deegan in the three-night even. Deegan is a doctor at Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane in Gotham. He’s a doctor, but he might actually be crazier than the inmates.

DC has hinted there might be “more than meets the eye” to the character. What do you think the twist will be? The belief is the character will be Doctor Destiny who first appeared in Justice League of America #5 in June 1961. That character’s name was revealed to be John Dee.

This isn’t Davies first role in the DC world. He was Ritchie Simpson from both NBC’s Constantine and the Justice League Dark animated movie.

The crossover will include Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, and feature the debut of Batwoman.
