CW Boss Says Crisis On Infinite Earths Will Be The Most Complicated Arrowverse Crossover Yet

We still have some time until next year’s Arrowverse crossover, like a lot of it. In the months lead-up to it, however, we’re already freaking out.

Why? Next year’s crossover event is the crossover: Crisis On Infinite Earths. It’s the original crossover in comics, which changed the face of DC Comics for decades.

It was a complicated process for comics. Never mind what would happen in live-action. Most crossover for the Arrowverse tend to be complicated affairs. This? This is going to be insane.

Talking with the Televisions Critics Association, CW President Mark Pedowitz could only preview the practical stuff for the crossover.

“It will be the biggest, the most complicated one that they’ve done, but I am proud to say that they are doing it and we are supporting them.”

As for the story? Well, he knows the broad strokes.

“I can’t tell you if it will follow the comic book version, but it will take some big swings.”

This event has been teased for years in The Flash with the future newspaper from 2024. Many fans believe that Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) changing the past in the current season of the series will start next year’s event.

While Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl are confirmed for the event, Pedowitz could only say about Legends of Tomorrow‘s involvement: “I hope so.”

(If the Batwoman series is a-go, then we may be seeing her as well. But who knows?)

He expanded on it.

“The only reason Legends wasn’t this year was the complications in production of doing these things. We don’t want to wear out everybody before the season ends. But we’re talking about a number of different ways to go. It is Crisis on Infinite Earths and if you know the history, things collapse.”

Crisis On Infinite Earths will air Fall 2019.
