The assembled heroes of the Arrowverse will face their greatest challenge yet this fall when the crossover to end all crossovers, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” airs. Following the recent teases for the upcoming event in the shows’ season finales, The CW revealed the first official poster for “Crisis” during its upfronts presentation, and it’s now leaked online.
The image features, from left to right, Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), the Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Batwoman (Ruby Rose), White Canary (Caity Lotz), the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) and Heatwave (Dominic Purcell). It appears to have been made up of previous promo posters, but it serves as a welcome promise that “Crisis” will bring together all the major faces of the shared DC TV universe to save the multiverse.
Fans will be particularly excited by the fact that the Waverider crew will be involved, after the Legends of Tomorrow cast sat out 2018’s “Elseworlds” crossover. It’s unclear at this time whether Sara Lance and Mick Rory’s placement on the poster is representative of all of the Legends or whether they’ll be the only two to be a major part of the event, but it’s known to be a scheduling nightmare to fit all the actors together, so it’d make sense if only two of them could be involved.
Likewise, this appears to confirm that Batwoman will play a significant role in “Crisis,” following Ruby Rose’s introduction as Bruce Wayne’s cousin in “Elseworlds” and the arrival of her own solo series this fall. In fact, Kate Kane’s part in the event was previously teased in an easter egg hidden in The Flash season 5 premiere.
Finally, the poster confirms that the crossover will take place over five hours across two quarters, which likely means that it’ll be spread over season finales and season premieres. This makes it the biggest Arrowverse event yet. We don’t have a specific air date just yet, but “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is definitely coming soon, and we simply cannot wait.
