The Arrowverse is a media franchise and shared universe around various interconnected TV series. They are TV shows that primarily air on The CW network and are based on various superheroes and personalities in the DC Comics universe. The franchise began with the show Arrow, which was based on the character Green Arrow and debuted back in October 2012. It was soon followed by The Flash which debuted in 2014. A spin-off featuring characters from both shows called Legends of Tomorrow premiered in 2016. After discussions about licensing rights and a network jump, Supergirl made her way to The CW that same year. Lastly, in 2019, Batwoman debuted as the fifth show in the Arroverse so far. NBC's Constantine and Black Lightning have made appearances on various Arrowverse so far. It is yet to be determined how deep their involvement and their story will be explored within the universe though.
So that about sums up all the shows on the Arrowverse so far. Do you know what the best part of this large shared universe really is? The Arrowverse crossovers! There have been 7 official crossover events so far. As expected though, the first few events were fun to watch but not quite awesome enough. As the Arrowverse grew though, so did the number of characters and superheroes involved. The first massive event really started back in 2017 with Crisis on Earth-X that involved all shows in the Arrowverse at the time. This was followed by Elseworlds the following year and the latest one, Crisis on Infinite Earths. If you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out on some of the top cameos in the Arrowver's Crisis on Infinite Earths. Go check our list about that below and get more excited to watch it soon.
No one expected it to happen and it's one of the greatest moments in the whole Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover event. The Arrowverse has done something that very few could ever do, being able to tie-in both TV (Arrowverse) and Movie (DCEU) universes into one very epic moment. It also seemed like DCEU's Barry Allen didn't have a superhero name yet, which means the films precedes the TV version of The Flash.
This was already teased and leaked even before the crossover event premiered but it is still cool to see it in actuality. Better yet, Brandon Routh reprises his roles as Superman from way back in 2006's Superman Returns. Kingdom Come Superman has suffered great losses such as the death of his beloved Lois Lane. The change of his S crest from yellow to black symbolizes that even in the darkest of times, hope can still shine through.
The ending scene of the Crisis on Infinite Earths gave us some pretty cool glimpses of the various superheroes on multiple Earths and one of the most easily recognized ones were the Titans and not just any Titans, it was the very same Titans from the show that premiered on the DC Universe own streaming service back in 2018. The show is arguably the DC Universe's biggest success story so far and we will be able to see the Titans again for another season in 2020.
Another one of those surprise and unexpected appearance in the Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover event. Who would have thought that the Prince of Darkness himself would make his presence know in the Arrowverse? When Team Arrow called for the help of John Constantine to save Oliver Queen's soul from Purgatory. In order to do so, they had to, of course, turn to Lucifer Morningstar himself. It was quite a memorable moment.
It was a brief moment but it was truly a nice homage to the classic TV shows of old. For those who don't know, this man is Burt Ward, who played Dick Grayson aka Robin opposite Adam West's Batman in the classic Batman TV show that aired in the 1960s. As the antimatter wave was about to hit Gotham City, he looks up to the skies and shouts a version of his iconic catchphrases, "Holy crimson skies of death!".
