The next Arrowverse crossover will adapt the Crisis on Infinite Earths story arc. As it was such a huge deal in the comics, fans are expecting to have a similar impact on television. Now, we have some new teases on what to expect.
The CW president Mark Pedowitz has weighed in on Crisis on Infinite Earths, promising a big event.
“It will be the biggest and most complicated [crossover yet].”
The comic story saw the deaths of major characters, such as Flash and Supergirl. Will the Arrowverse go the same route? Pedowitz won’t confirm, but he does tease some ominous things for our heroes.
“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.”
After the events of Elseworlds (SPOILERS by the way!), a popular fan theory is that Oliver Queen will be the one to die. He made some sort of deal with The Monitor to spare Flash and Supergirl, so those two dying would be unlikely. Despite Arrow being renewed for an eighth season, killing him off halfway through would be a real shock. But, we’ll see if that happens.
Stay tuned for more as we have it. Crisis on Infinite Earths will air next fall on The CW.
