After over a year of build, Crisis on Infinite Earths is edging ever closer. Due to commence with December 8th's episode of Supergirl, this five-episode, five-show crossover event is going to change the landscape of DC TV as we know it.
Not just will Crisis play out across Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, but this game-changing story arc will also feature stars from Smallville, Black Lightning, Batman: The Animated Series, and more as The CW looks to somehow streamline any and all DC Comics-driven series into one standard timeline.
It's bold, it's brave, and it's going to be an utter treat for longtime fans of any of these shows. But it's not going to be all sunshine and rainbows, mind, for there are some very real costs on the line in Crisis.
Adapted from the legendary 1985 comic book tale, Crisis will see The Anti-Monitor step out of the shadows and look to destroy the entire multiverse. In said comic book arc, DC's finest heroes eventually managed to save the day - although several huge names died in the process.
