Crisis on Infinite Earths

rhcooprhcoop Knoxville, Tn
I know the Arrowverse CW shows are guilty pleasures at best and b to c to d rate comic shows at worst, but I wanted to know if anyone on here watches or is going to watch the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover they have planned to go through all their CW shows this year?

It appears that only Arrow and Flash are the ones heavily leading into the cross over and the others may only be involved when the event starts.  The first episode of the final season of Arrow was really good and did a pretty deep dive into the Crisis story and the second episode of the Flash showed us a map of the multiverse, so this event is starting to crank up.  

I think this will be a pretty fun event and I was wondering if anyone else has any thoughts on it?

    I've been in and out for all the CW arrowverse shows over the years, but I appreciate that they've gone full-on all-in for this. Every character/actor they can find/pay/coerce to jump into the plot and then some. They are totally playing into the bonkers-ness of it and seem to be having a lot of fun with it.

    I think it's over five shows, so close to 4 hours of content, so could easily be an Infinity War/Endgame quantity of material. I think they know this is probably their one shot at doing this since several of these shows will probably also be going off air sooner than later and have just decided to go for it.

    I'm also sure they are doing this to push all of their characters together onto one earth like the OG comic story did.  I'm interested in seeing the various versions of Superman interact with each other.  I hope they have a lot more surprises in store with tons of cameos.

    I'll be watching, although probably not until January.

    Never finished the last season of LoT, and haven't seen any Black Lightning this season.  Caught up on the other three, though.

    I gave up on the CW shows long ago, even LoT, the best of them. Too much tedious, dreary writing. I'll probably watch Crisis just for the cameos.

    That was mostly fun, although Welling continues to disappoint.

    How good was the Routh version of Kingdom Come/OG Superman movies version of Superman?

    Man, he's really good in that role, I actually like Caville a lot in the role, but its a shame Routh didn't get to be in more movies.

    Did anyone notice he name dropped his son from Superman Returns?  I really enjoyed that he showed zero disbelief in what they were telling him and was instantly on board.

    Now, that fake Kingdom Come Batman was GARBAGE.  

    It's silly, but I'm still having fun with it.  I heard a theory that Oliver might become the CW version of the Spectre for this crossover, but who knows.  Anything could happen once the monitor gets slaughtered.
  • These are the shows that I've been kinda hoping for years would get cancelled already so I might have a reasonable chance of catching up to crossovers like this.  It's impossible at this point.  I got like 3 seasons into Arrow a while back but then there's the Flash and like four other shows after that and the investment of time becomes like an exponential growth curve from there  :(

    If you know enough about DC to understand there was a crisis story I would just buckle up and watch it.  They do a good job of explaining what is happening and who all the characters are.

    I mean, if you get who Superman, Green Arrow and the Flash are you are 90% good to go.

  • Right on, I like that advice!  Honestly, to see the one true Superman return to the role, I'm willing to be a bit confused by some side characters.

    There are a TON of easter eggs from almost every type of TV or movie series DC has ever put out on this thing.  It's pretty crazy.

    Well, that was... they really killed the momentum with that long break.

    At least I got what I wanted, with the combined Earth.

    They should have done it all in one week, but it was good.  

    I wanted Ollie to be more like the Spectre powers wise, but that was a smart move. They can bring him back anytime he or they want to pop in during a big storyline.  Hard to completely wipe out God's Wrath, the Spectre has "died" many times in the comics. 

    The Flash meets Flash scene about melted my brain for about 5 minutes.  I am happy they are smart and bold enough to do this.  I'm sure that we may see the other side of this in the new Flashpoint movie.  

    I'm glad the TV characters are on one earth now and have started the JLA, but I'm also glad the other earths, especially the Kingdom Come Superman's earth. I want him to be involved in a new cross over now. 

    He should be the one getting the TV show, but I think the other Superman show will be fun now that Lex has pulled a fast one and can be a regular in that show.

    @rhcoop - I agree on all parts, except where do you think Lex will be by the end of this season of Supergirl?
