As difficult as it may be to believe, Arrowverse's 2019 crossover, "Crisis on Infinite Earths," may be even bigger than we thought.
While speaking with CBR at Comic-Con International, The Monitor actor LaMonica Garrett teased more guest stars are on the way for the fall event, which spans Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and, the newest addition to the Arrowverse, Batwoman.
Garrett dropped the major hint in response to announcement that Legends of Tomorrow star Brandon Routh will reprise his role from Superman Returns, and appear as the Man of Steel in "Crisis." Asked about Routh's new status quo, Garrett suggested, "names are going to be popping in" for the crossover.
"It's just big," he continued. "And I think that, with 'Crisis,' too, there's so many, so many ways they can go with it. There's so many people they can grab from the history of DCTV, and now film, that -- who knows -- I think the closer we get to it, names are going to be popping in. You know, different actors from back in the day. And it's just a who's who of who's going to be in 'Crisis,' and I'm looking forward to it as a fan as well. But you know, working with him is going to be awesome."
That certainly wouldn't be a first for the Arrowverse. For instance, Lois & Clark alum Dean Cain and 1984's Supergirl Helen Slater appear as Kara adoptive parents on Supergirl. John Wesley Shipp, who played Barry Allen on 1990's The Flash, starred as Henry Allen and Jay Garrick on The CW's The Flash. Judging by Garrett's comment, "Crisis in Infinite Earths" will continue that tradition.
Announced in December 2018, on the heels of "Elseworlds," "Crisis on Infinite Earths" draws its name from the 1985-1986 comic book event of the same name, which merged the parallel universes of DC continuity into one, destroying worlds, and killing heroes, in the process. Garrett's character, who played an integral role in "Elseworlds," foretold that Oliver Queen is destined to die in the forthcoming Crisis. Stephen Amell confirmed in March that Arrow will end with its 10-episode eighth season.
Scheduled to air this fall on The CW, "Crisis on Infinite Earths" will envelope Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Expect more details later today at Comic-Con International in San Diego, during The CW's highly anticipated Arrowverse presentation.
