The WOW factor for the annual Arrowverse crossover keeps happening. First it was annouced that Black Lightning and other characters from the show will be involved in the annual event now another blockbuater announcement was revealed today at the TCA’s.
Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES as its spinoffs, will join the cast of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman . Many have argued that even thougg not physically seen on screen he is the best Batman of all time. The addition of Conroy comes along with announcements that Burt Ward (Batman) would appear, and Brandon Routh would reprise his role from SUPERMAN RETURNS.
“CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS ” will be the biggest crossover event that The CW’s DC Universe TV series have attempted yet, with five series (ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, and BATWOMAN). The story will, at least according to the onscreen canon established so far and comments by cast and producers at Comic Con, feature the death of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who struck a mysterious deal with The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett during last season’s “ELSEWORLDS” crossover in order to save the lives of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who were “destined” to die in the event.
We are quickly approaching the 5th season of SUPERGIRL on The CW. It has alreasy been revealed that the girl of steel (Melissa Benoist) will face multiple villains this season and we now know who that first one will be and who will be portraying them.
Jennifer Cheon Garcia (Van Helsing) will suit-up as Midnight, who is described as “the physical manifestation of darkness” and “a murderous villain released from an otherworldly prison to enact revenge against the person who put her there.” as first reported by Variety. Now more than likey this will be a take on minor cybernetic villain M1dn1ght the comics, but it is not specified.
It was also revealed at SDCC that Julie Gonzalo and Staz Nair have also joined the cast as Andrea Rojas (a.k.a. Acrata) and William Dey, respectively.

Since its inception first on CBS then over to the CW, we have seen Melissa Benoist as the titular character don the classic Supergirl uniform on the shirt. We saw a variation in the CRISIS ON EARTH X crossover where as Overgirl it was still the same outfit just a different color scheme.
Well during a chat with director Kevin Smith at Twitch Prime’s Apex Legends Crown Cup, the SUPERGIRL star confirmed Kara Danvers will receive a new costume when she returns to the small screen this fall. And now we have our first look at the costume.
As you can see Supergirl’s new costume more directly resembles Superman’s in being the full on suit with her in pants instead of the skirt. Now as Kevin Smith and Melissa Benoist in the interview, this design change didn’t come out of the blue. After all, even the most recent season of show poked some fun at the impracticality of fighting in a skirt when Red Daughter mocked Kara’s outfit during one of their confrontations.
Oh yeah we have to take note to the bangs in the photo as well.
If you remember in the most recent season of DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, John Constantine (Matt Ryan) was trying to help save the soul of Astra who was trapped in hell thanks to Constantine only to ultimately resent him.
Well it has been revealed that Astra (Olivia Swann) has been promoted to series regular and will be one of the “big bads” of the season. So this will be very interesting seeing how this all plays out and even if it connects with the CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover storyline.The
An exact release date for Legends of Tomorrow season 5 has not been revealed, but it’s believed the season will be premiering sometime in January 2020.
It is less than a month away until the 50th anniversary of San Diego Comic Con is upon us. One of the notable things will be the heavy WBTV presence throughout Ballroom 20. With that one of the focuses will be be that of the CW’s Arrowverse.
The reason for this is not only will it be the eighth and final season of ARROW but also is the mega CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover. This will bring together BATWOMAN, ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and no one is sure yet if BLACK LIGHTNING will fall into the fray.
We dont know fully what to expect yet in regards to the crossover or their respective shows but it seems as though we may have a bit of a tease from Arrowverse executive consultant and former ARROW showrunner Marc Guggenheim. Guggenheim took to Twitter to tease of the potential Crisis-size announcement.
The CW has finally unveiled its fall premiere slate for the upcoming 2019/2020 television season, and it’s shaping to be a big October as the network prepares to bid farewell to one of its flagship superhero series while launching a brand new show set in Gotham City.
