"Crisis on Infinite Earths" is the upcoming sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event, featuring episodes of the live-action television series Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow on The CW. The Supergirl, Batwoman, and The Flash episodes will air in December 2019, while the Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow episodes will air in January 2020. Additionally, events in the Black Lightning episode "The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Third Stone From the Sun", airing between Batwoman and The Flash, will also tie-in to the crossover. "Crisis on Infinite Earths", which is inspired by the comic of the same name, continues plot lines established in the previous crossover, "Elseworlds". Additionally, the preceding episodes of Arrow season eight and much of The Flash season six served as a prelude to the crossover. In "Crisis on Infinite Earths", the Monitor gathers Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, the Legends, and seven heroes from throughout the multiverse to stop the Anti-Monitor from destroying all reality.

Allusions to "Crisis on Infinite Earths" began in 2014, with the pilot episode of The Flash. The adaption of the comic storyline began in earnest during the development of "Elseworlds", with the crossover title revealed at the end of "Elseworlds" in December 2018. In mid-2019, multiple castings were revealed, including that actors who previously portrayed DC characters in other media, such as Burt Ward and Kevin Conroy, would appear in the crossover. "Crisis on Infinite Earths" will also see cast members from fellow CW series Black Lightning appear and cross over with the Arrowverse for the first time, along with actors reprising their roles from former The WB/CW series Smallville and Birds of Prey. Filming took place from the end of September 2019 until the beginning of November 2019.

Synopsis

Prelude

To prepare for the coming crisis, the Monitor recruits Oliver Queen to help him traverse and warn the multiverse,[3] brings J'onn J'onzz's brother Malefic to Earth-38,[4] and retrieves the dead body of Lex Luthor.[5] Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen learn that the crisis date has moved up to December 2019, and that in order to save billions, the Flash must die.[6] Barry travels to Earth-3 to see Jay Garrick and Joan Williams, who have been tracking anti-matter appearing across the multiverse. They send Barry's mind forward in time, causing him to see billions of timelines where the multiverse is destroyed and the one where he dies saving it.[7]

Meanwhile, the Monitor sends Oliver to Earth-2 to retrieve dwarf star particles, where he witnesses the destruction of Earth-2 from an anti-matter wave.[8] As he returns to Earth-1, the Monitor diverts him to Hong Kong to retrieve biophysicist Robert Wong, who has recreated the Alpha-Omega virus; Wong is placed in A.R.G.U.S. custody.[9] Back in Star City, William Clayton, Connor Hawke, and Mia Smoak mysteriously time travel from 2040 to the present.[10] Oliver and John Diggle eventually learn that Lyla Michaels has been working with the Monitor.[11] The Monitor places Oliver and Laurel Lance in a shared time loop, allowing Laurel to properly say goodbye to Quentin Lance and Oliver to accept he cannot change his fate. Out of the loop, the duo find themselves on the island Lian Yu along with Diggle, William, Connor, and Mia for their final mission.[12] With the island has become a hotspot for supernatural activities, William uses all the parts and knowledge gathered from their previous missions to build a weapon for the Monitor, which can only be activated with Lyla's DNA. Once she touches it, she is powered by the island's energy and disappears into one of the Monitor's portals.[13]

The Monitor visits Earth-38 to contact J'onn, telling him he has passed his test after having saved Malefic and is ready for the crisis. Back in his realm, he notifies a now revived Lex that his mind is needed for the coming crisis.[14] Minutes before the crisis is to begin, Nash Wells, a doppelgänger of Harrison Wells, is sucked into the Monitor's chamber under Central City after being promised a new life.[14] At the start of crisis, red skies cover Central City and Lian Yu, with Lyla returning to the island to collect Oliver and Mia, telling them she is now a Harbinger of things to come.[15][13]

Production

Development

In September 2018, three months before the release of "Elseworlds", the 2018–19 Arrowverse crossover,[47] Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Phil Klemmer said "people [were] already talking about" the 2019 crossover, with it already having "a loose shape".[48] In early December 2018, a week before the airing of "Elseworlds", Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz said the producers for all the series "already know a lot about what's going on in next year's crossover,"[49] while Marc Guggenheim stated "Elseworlds" would "lay the groundwork" for the 2019–20 crossover.[50] The end of "Elseworlds" revealed the crossover title and premise as "Crisis on Infinite Earths", adapting the story from the comic of the same name.[51] "Elseworlds" introduced the characters Mar Novu / Monitor and Psycho-Pirate, and alluded to an impending "crisis" event.[52][53] "Crisis on Infinite Earths" was first hinted at in the Arrowverse in the pilot episode of The Flash.[52]

In January 2019, The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing said that there were certain things that would be done in the remainder of the fifth season of The Flash in service of the forthcoming crossover.[54] At that time, Pedowitz called the crossover "the biggest, the most complicated one" to date, and was hopeful Legends of Tomorrow, which did not participate in "Elseworlds" because of production complications, would be part of "Crisis".[55] When pitching the crossover to the studio and network early on, Guggenheim noted the creators stressed they did not want the event to be "Crisis on CW Earths", but to have the ability "to touch as many strands of the DC tapestry as possible."[40]

In May 2019, Pedowitz announced at The CW's upfront presentation that the crossover would include The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman in a five-episode event, spanning dates in both late 2019 and early 2020.[56] The crossover will occur in the ninth episodes of Supergirl's fifth season,[57] Batwoman's first season,[58] and The Flash's sixth season,[59] in the eighth episode of Arrow's eighth season,[60] and as a special episode of the Legends of Tomorrow's fifth season; this episode is not considered the series' season premiere.[61] Additionally, the Black Lightning episode "The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Third Stone From the Sun" will tie-in to "Crisis on Infinite Earths", ahead of Jefferson Pierce first appearing in The Flash episode of the crossover.[62]

Lead-up

In May 2019, the season finales of The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow all featured teases for the upcoming crossover, with the Monitor making an appearance in all episodes except on The Flash.[63] Eric Wallace, showrunner of the sixth season of The Flash, noted that when all the series' showrunners discussed plans for their series before the crossover, "all of this synergy started to happen" with "a lot of cross collaboration" in service to the crossover events. Wallace felt the themes of "grief... death, and... the end of all worlds" in "Crisis" worked with the story they were trying to tell with the villain Ramsey Rosso / Bloodwork, "who is facing the end of his own world". This allowed the start of season six of The Flash to help set up the crossover.[59] The majority of Arrow's eighth season serves as a prelude to the crossover.[64] The Arrow writers consulted with The Flash writers regarding the destruction of Earth-2 in "Starling City" to ensure they could destroy this Earth.[8] On Supergirl, co-showrunner Robert Rovner said the season would tease the crossover "in our way, which is a little bit different from the way Arrow and The Flash are doing it." He also highlighted the return of Malefic, J'onn J'onzz's brother, as a major plot thread leading to the crossover, describing it as "a gauntlet for J'onn".[65] LaMonica Garrett, who portrays both the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor, said before the crossover, the Anti-Monitor's "presence [would] be felt before you physically see him," adding, "You see just enough of him to know this guy means business, but it's not in your face in every scene leading up to" the crossover.[22]

The preceding episodes of Batwoman, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow[citation needed] featured an end tag scene with Nash Wells gaining access to the Monitor's chamber under Central City.[14][15] In "The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Third Stone From the Sun", red skies cover Freeland and Jefferson Pierce learns of parallel universes.[62]

Writing

Each part of the crossover was written by the following creative teams. The Supergirl episode was written by Derek Simon and Jay Faerber with Robert Rovner and Marc Guggenheim contributing the story,[20] Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson wrote the Batwoman episode,[17] and Lauren Certo and Sterling Gates wrote The Flash episode, with Eric Wallace conceiving the story.[21] The Arrow episode was co-written by Guggenheim and Marv Wolfman, who wrote the comic book,[66][67] and the Legends of Tomorrow episode was written by Keto Shimizu and Ubah Mohamed.[68] The episodes' scripts were completed by early September 2019.[69]

Guggenheim noted the crossover would try to incorporate "seminal moments" from the comic book, with the opening of the Arrowverse crossover also showing the destruction of various parallel universes similarly to how the comic begins.[70] Speaking to the deaths of Supergirl and the Flash from the comic book storyline, Wallace conceded that the writers "can't just kill all of our number ones on our shows", but a proper balance was found to kill some of them. He continued that the goal of the crossover for him was to "tap into that feeling that the readers in 1985 would have had, when reading that story, with the tectonic shifts in the comic world, underneath" and felt the Arrowverse ending was a "game-changer" that "opens up to a whole new world".[59] For scenes set in Gotham City, Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries ensured the grounded tone of the series was kept, since it is "not normal for [the characters of Batwoman] to interact with aliens and travel to different universes".[71] The version of the Anti-Monitor that appears was also inspired by the character's appearance in the New 52 storyline, "Darkseid Wars".[22]

With the inclusion of Clark Kent and Lois Lane from Smallville in the crossover, it will explore what happened to the characters since the end of Smallville.[72] Erica Durance, who portrays Lois Lane from the series, said, "It's a little bit of a look into their future and the different choices they've made to be together. It's a full-circle moment that's really nice." Guggenheim pointed out that the Batwoman episode where the characters appear, was written by former writers on Smallville. This allowed Guggenheim to "[step] aside and let them speak to where things were headed. As a fan of the show, it answered a lot of questions that I had. It provided a lot of closure, I think, in a really nice way." The Smallville material in the crossover was shared with Smallville co-creator Alfred Gough before filming began.[40] Appearing as Bruce Wayne in live-action for the first time allowed Kevin Conroy to "explore a lot of [the] dark corners" of the character, in a different way than when he voiced an older version of the character in the animated series Batman Beyond.[73]

The inclusion of Black Lightning in the crossover was decided "very late in the game" according to Guggenheim, adding, "The crossover was not originally designed around him". Guggenheim worked closely with Black Lightning showrunner Salim Akil to figure out a way to incorporate the character in a way that would not be a simple cameo, but "in a way that feels significant". Once the logistics and creative elements were solved, having the character "elevated the crossover to another level". On the character's appearance, actor Cress Williams stated the character's entrance comes "in a very surprising way. He's not prepared for it. So, he doesn’t know these people." Williams added that because of this, there is "some conflict early on when he's trying to figure out, who are you people and why am I here?".[74]

Casting

In July 2019 at San Diego Comic-Con, multiple castings for the crossover were announced. They included: Tyler Hoechlin reprising his role as Superman,[26] while Brandon Routh, who portrays Ray Palmer / Atom in the Arrowverse, would reprise his role as Superman from the film Superman Returns (2006), portraying "an older, more world-weary" version, inspired by the Kingdom Come Superman;[75][76][27] Tom Cavanagh would portray Pariah in addition to Nash Wells and Eobard Thawne / Reverse Flash;[33][34] Burt Ward, who portrayed Dick Grayson / Robin in the 1960s Batman television series, would appear in an undisclosed role;[46] Amell portraying multiple versions of Oliver Queen;[24] Jon Cryer reprising his role as Lex Luthor;[77] and LaMonica Garrett also portraying the Anti-Monitor in addition to the Monitor.[19] Shortly after, Elizabeth Tulloch was also confirmed to be reprising her role as Lois Lane.[30]

The following month, at the Television Critics Association, Pedowitz announced that cast members from the series Black Lightning would appear,[61] something star Cress Williams previously hinted at,[78] and that Kevin Conroy would appear as an elderly Bruce Wayne, having previously voiced the character in multiple animated media.[61] Conroy "jumped at" the opportunity to portray the character in live action, having not done it previously. He also felt it would be an opportunity to satisfy the "loyal" fanbase of Batman: The Animated Series, who also expressed interested in seeing Conroy portray the character on camera.[73] Guggenheim also revealed the producers discussed with DC and Warner Bros. about the possibility of having Lynda Carter reprise her role as Wonder Woman from the television series, but felt it was unlikely to happen.[60]

In September, Johnathon Schaech was confirmed to be reprising his role as Jonah Hex,[45] and shortly after John Wesley Shipp was cast in an undisclosed role.[79] In the middle of the month, it was announced that Tom Welling and Erica Durance would reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively, from Smallville.[80][72] Durance also returns to reprise her Arrowverse role as Alura Zor-El.[40] Michael Rosenbaum, who portrayed Lex Luthor on Smallville, revealed Warner Bros. and the producers approached him to reprise the role in "Crisis", but he ultimately declined.[81] Alan Ritchson, who played Arthur Curry/Aquaman on Smallville, was also approached to reprise his role in the crossover but he turned it down due to his scheduling conflicts with the series Titans.[82] Later in the month, Osric Chau was cast as Ryan Choi and Ashley Scott was confirmed to be reprising her role as Helena Kyle / Huntress from the series Birds of Prey.[35][44] At the start of October, Audrey Marie Anderson was announced to be reprising her role as Lyla Michaels, while also taking on the Harbinger persona from the comics; Lyla previously used "Harbinger" as her A.R.G.U.S. codename.[83] The same month, Stephen Lobo was cast as Jim Corrigan.[43] At the end of November, it was reported that Brec Bassinger would appear in the crossover as Courtney Whitmore / Stargirl, ahead of the release of her series on the streaming service DC Universe later in 2020.[42]

Filming

Production for "Crisis on Infinite Earths" began on September 24, 2019.[84] Filming at the farmhouse for the Kent family farm took place at the end of the month.[85] The farmhouse had previously been featured in the "Elseworlds" crossover and on Smallville.[85][86] Production for the Legends of Tomorrow episode began on October 4.[68] Williams took a break from filming Black Lightning in Atlanta to spend a week filming his parts of the crossover in Vancouver.[41] Directors on the crossover included Jesse Warn (Supergirl),[20] Laura Belsey (Batwoman),[17] David McWhirter (The Flash),[21] Glen Winter (Arrow),[87] and Gregory Smith (Legends of Tomorrow).[68] Filming had completed by November 8, with some reshoots and minor filming still needing to be completed.[88]

Music

Blake Neely, along with his collaborators Nathaniel Blume, Sherri Chung, and Daniel Chan, began work on the crossover on November 20, 2019,[89] with the score recorded on December 2.[90]

Release

Broadcast

The crossover will begin with Supergirl on December 8, 2019, and will continue with Batwoman on December 9, and The Flash on December 10. "Crisis on Infinite Earths" will conclude with Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow on January 14, 2020.[61] The December 9, 2019 episode of Black Lightning will also tie-in to the event.[62]

The first teaser for the crossover was released on November 10, 2019.[25] Boost Mobile served as a promotional partner for the event.[91] On November 15, The CW released a series of show-specific teaser shorts.[92][93][94][95][32] A week later, the poster for the event was released.[39] On November 24, 2019, a full trailer was released,[96] while a final trailer for the event was released on December 3, 2019.[97]

With the release of the initial trailers in November, a logo for the event featuring the leading character from each of the series except Oliver Queen was revealed. Guggenheim noted that, at that time, legal and financial reasons prevented them from including Amell's character in the logo.[98] However, with the release of the full trailer in December, Oliver was now included in the logo, which Guggenheim explained was due to "the creativity of a lot of very smart people" and "a loophole" to allow the change to happen.[99][100]

Crisis Aftermath

Crisis Aftermath is the aftershow that will air after the Supergirl episode on December 8 and The Flash episode on December 10. The show will "go in-depth to explore" the crossover, and be hosted by Kevin Smith.[101]
