Just in case you needed more verification that Crisis on Infinite Earths was going to be epic, we’ve got that within!
Today, The CW unveiled details from the first three parts of the epic Arrowverse crossover, which is poised to begin on Sunday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. It’s going to start over with Supergirl before going over to Batwoman and then The Flash. Those episodes will air on December 9 and December 10, respectively. Note that there will be Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow episodes within Crisis on Infinite Earths, but those are going to be saved until the new year.
Just reading the synopses alone should give you a sense of the scale of this crossover — we’ve got guest stars galore, with many of them (including John Wesley Shipp and then also Kevin Conroy) proving to be of the nostalgic variety.
Part 1, Supergirl – “The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) sends Harbinger (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) to gather the worlds’ greatest heroes – Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Batwoman (guest star Ruby Rose), White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz), The Atom (guest star Brandon Routh) and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) – in preparation for the impending Crisis. With their worlds in imminent danger, the superheroes suit up for battle while J’onn (David Harewood) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) recruit Lena (Katie McGrath) to help them find a way to save the people of Earth-38.”
Part 2, Batwoman – “The group uses Ray’s (guest star Brandon Routh) invention to track new recruits to help save the universe. The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) sends Iris (guest star Candice Patton), Clark (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois (guest star Elizabeth Tulloch) in search of a mysterious Kryptonian, while Kate (Ruby Rose) and Kara (guest star Melissa Benoist) head out to find Bruce Wayne (guest star Kevin Conroy). In addition, Mia (guest star Katherine McNamara) challenges Sara (guest star Caity Lotz), Rory (guest star Dominic Purcell) discovers a hidden talent, and Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) returns.”
Part 3, The Flash – “Pariah (Tom Cavanagh) enlists Black Lightning (guest star Cress Williams) to help stop the Anti-Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) after Flash-90 (guest star John Wesley Shipp) shares what he learned from his battle in ‘Elseworlds.’ With the help of Black Lightning, Barry (Grant Gustin), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) come up with a plan that could save them all. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) has a heart-to-heart with Ryan Choi (guest star Osric Chau), while Oliver (guest star Stephen Amell) and Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) return to an old familiar stomping ground.”
Obviously, an episode of The Flash within Crisis is probably going to feature more of its own characters than others, but it does really feel like a lot of actors are just bouncing around hoping to make things work. The Batwoman episode will probably be the most challenging, largely because we’re not sure how many of its supporting players will be introduced. After all, many of its characters were not a part of Elseworlds.
