“Crisis on Infinite Earths” is a storyline that most fans never thought they would see brought to life. It’s an epic, a crossover to which all other comic crossovers are measured against. It set the standard for the DC Comics universe for decades.
Yet the 12-issue Marv Wolfman story has been teased since 2014 with the pilot episode of The Flash. After the “Elseworlds” crossover last year, fans were knocked over with the news that the 2019 crossover event would be “Crisis”.
Now the journey to save the multi-verse from the Anti-Monitor will be adapted into a five-part event spanning over two months with the characters of the Arrowverse. With Arrow ending, a date with destiny for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), and a big wide multiverse to consider, fans are beside themselves with nerves and anticipation.
Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Arrowverse mastermind Greg Berlanti shared his thoughts about the event, which is the story that got him into comics to begin with. (It makes sense the miniseries was made to clean-up DC’s complicated backstory, streamline titles, and generally put things to rights.)
“The thing that Dungeons & Dragons and Lord of the Rings and the DC space had at the time [in the stories they were doing] was how you got a sense of ‘Oh my God, this story is bigger than all of these other little stories, [and] I can figure it out. There was was no online community to connect with. You felt a part of it by like, ‘Oh, I can get that piece of information, or I can go get that comic book, or that issue, and I can fill in the blanks of being part of this bigger thing.’”
