Tomorrow night, Elseworlds Part 3 is going to air on The CW. Technically, it will be airing as a part of Supergirl, but there’s going to be so much more going on here beyond just the latest adventures of Kara and company. This is a chance to see the saga of John Deegan and The Monitor potentially come to a close.
This crossover has shown itself to be big, epic, funny, and also action-packed. Yet, it does also have to tie together in a way that makes sense. That’s going to be an incredible showdown tomorrow night, and apparently, it’s going to involve Black Suit Superman. He’s going to arriving claiming that he is the hero that this world needs and with that in mind, all heck is going to break loose.
Superman is no ordinary villain — after all, he is Superman. He is one of the most powerful characters out there in the multiverse and he is going to be an enormous threat to everyone. Before our heroes can do anything else, they are going to have to find a way to stop him … and that’s not going to be altogether easy for them. (Before we say too much else, can we stop for a minute to give some kudos to Tyler Hoechlin? This guy looks and sounds incredible in this preview — who knew that he could play a darker side of this character so effectively, especially since he hasn’t even had all that much time to play Clark Kent?)
Anyhow, the Elseworlds Part 3 synopsis below gives you a small sense of some of the stakes that lie ahead:
THE BATTLE CONCLUDES – Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) engage in the battle of their lives. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Derek Simon & Robert Rovner (#409). Original airdate 12/11/2018.
We certainly hope that whatever happens here is really fantastic, mostly because this is likely the last crossover episode for at least the next year. These installments are such a huge undertaking that it’s hard to do all that many of them. Yet, we do think that they are definitely worthwhile. These are the sort of stories that a lot of people dream about who are comic-book fans and there’s still something that is so incredible that we’re able to see them play out in a TV format. Yes, the movie crossovers work with Marvel, but we have so much investment in these TV show characters because we’ve come to know them so well.
