The CW's Arrowverse DC superhero TV shows are one TV biggest franchise. Something that beats even that of Marvel's offerings. Time sure does fly as it has already been 7 years since Arrow, the network's first show in the series, first came out. The show revolves around the DC superhero character, Green Arrow. The show was developed by Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti, and Marc Guggenheim. Canadian actor, Stephen Amell was cast to play the titular role. This was shortly followed by the Arrowverse's second entry, The Flash, based on, you guessed it, The Flash. Greg Berlanti had expressed his interest in making a Supergirl spin-off show back in 2014. Supergirl's pilot episode premiered just a year later, albeit on a different network, CBS. In the span of just 4 short years, the Arrowverse TV show franchise with an impressive line-up of superheroes.
The network was not done yet and pitched another show hot on the heels of Supergirl's success. The show was about a superhero team-up and that came to fruition in 2016. Do you know what's fun about having so many superhero shows under one combined universe? The crossover events and The CW definitely delivered. Since the Arrowverse first began, we've been treated to 5 crossover events already. Batwoman was introduced in the last Elseworlds crossover event and debuted with her own show in 2019. The 6th and biggest crossover event yet, Crisis on Infinite Earths is nearly upon us. As it inches closer and closer to release, you'll expectedly have some questions about it. With that in mind, allow us to take your biggest questions about CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event and possibly shed a light on them. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
This latest crossover event will be the biggest one that the network has done yet. No, we're not just talking about its size and coverage, but it's that as well. From the cast to shooting schedules/locations, and post-production, there's a lot of logistics involved. In an interview at the Television Critics Association back in January of 2019, CW president Mark Pedowitz commented that “It will be the biggest, the most complicated one that they’ve done, but I am proud to say that they are doing it and we are supporting them”.
The event's title comes from a DC comics mini-series of the same name that was written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by George Pérez. It was published and ran from 1985 to 1986. It's was one of the biggest crossover comics stories ever made both in scale and in the actual story. It sees thousands of heroes coming together to the call of Mar Novu aka The Monitor. He enlists the heroes to help stop his evil twin brother, the Anti-Monitor and prevent the destruction of reality itself.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths is a direct continuation of the previous Elseworlds crossover event. As such, it will be addressing some of the lingering questions we've had about it such as the details of the deal between Green Arrow and The Monitor. It will be addressing one of our longest questions about one of the Arrowverse's shows, The Flash. In particular, that newspaper headline from the future about the Flash's disappearance due to a crisis.
When the network was building-up that this would be their biggest crossover event yet, they were not kidding. We already that all five shows in the Arrowverse will be taking part in it. They are Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and newcomer, Batwoman. What some of you might not know is that we will also be seeing a few guest appearances from Black Lightning, Brandon Routh as Superman, and Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne and yes, you read that right. Probably the biggest cameo of all is Clark Kent and Lois Lane from Smallville.
Unlike previous crossover events that followed a straight weekly per show release, the five-hour event will be divided into two parts. The first part will premiere this December 2019 with Supergirl kicking things off and will be followed by Batwoman, and then The Flash. The last two installments will follow and premiere in January 2020 with Arrow and will conclude with an episode of Legends of Tomorrow.
