Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths will ‘take some big swings’


How much of the Arrowverse Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover take from its DC Comics arc? And who will join the Monitor in his quest for destruction?

A lot happened in the last Arroowverse crossover, Elseworlds. While a live-action Batwoman was cool, some major events took place. For starters, Oliver made a deal with The Monitor to save his friends. Will he pay his debt in Crisis on Infinite Earths and how?

In the pages of DC Comics, some major names kicked the bucket. And, according to CW President Mark Pedowitz, who spoke with TV Line, the crossover will be just as bold.

"“That is the intent, to take some big swings… Can’t tell you if it’ll follow the comic book version, but it’ll take some big swings… It is ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths,’ and if you know the history, things collapse.”"

On Flash, Barry disappears during Crisis hence why Nora made her way to past, among other reasons. We also know both Flash and Supergirl were meant to die during Elseworlds until Oliver stepped in. There weren’t any hints dropped about Oliver’s selfless heroics, but we’re sure The Monitor will make him pay.

The Monitor isn’t alone in his quest as Elseworlds birthed another cosmic villain. Batwoman called Oliver to voice her concern about the man who would become Pirate Psycho, Roger Hayden.

In the end, we see Hayden wearing the gold Pirate Psycho. According to TV Line, it sets the stage for something bigger.

"“The Monitor’s evil counterpart, who counts Psycho-Pirate among his accomplices — is unleashed on the multiverse and begins to destroy the various Earths that it comprises.”"

With enemies this powerful and Superman no longer on Earth, the team will need help. But, Pedowitz hopes The Legends Of Tomorrow could return to the crossover.

Let’s hope they can finally figure out a way to introduce Black Lightning. Better yet, Crisis should merge all Arrowverse shows into one universe.
