The Seven Paragons Of Crisis On Infinite Earths Have Been Revealed

Arrow‘s season 8 opener introduced the concept of “Paragons,” the most important heroes in the multiverse upon which the fate of all rests. Ep Marc Guggenheim then further teased that there would be seven Paragons in “Crisis on Infinite Earths” and sure enough, this was revealed by the Monitor in Monday’s “Part 2,” but only four were identified in that episode.

In last night’s “Part 3” though, the full line-up was made clear, and you can check it out down below:

Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Earth-38) – Paragon of Hope Sara Lance/White Canary (Earth-1) – Paragon of Destiny Clark Kent/Superman (Earth-96) – Paragon of Trust Kate Kane/Batwoman (Earth-1) – Paragon of Courage Barry Allen/The Flash (Earth-1) – Paragon of Love J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter (Earth-38) – Paragon of Honor Ryan Choi (Earth-1) – Paragon of Humanity

In “Part 2,” Kara and Sara were identified immediately. Earth-38’s Superman and Lois Lane and Iris

Crisis On Infinite Earths Fans Are Going Nuts Over Last Night’s Cliffhanger

The CW’s biggest crossover event yet, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” is going down well with fans. It’s already delivered a ton of cool cameos from across adaptions of DC’s work, with the first few minutes alone bringing us Robert Wuhl’s Alexander Knox reading about Burtonverse Batman stopping Joker, then to DC Universe’s Titans-verse, then Russell Tovey’s The Ray on Earth-x before finally (and best of all) stopping off at Earth-66 where Burt Ward’s Dick Grayson sees the oncoming disaster and yells “Holy crimson skies of death!” On top of that, we’ve revisited Smallville and seen Kevin Conroy play an unexpectedly sinister Bruce Wayne.

If you’ll recall, though, back in November, Arrowverse producer Marc Guggenheim hinted that the break between the third and fourth episodes would see a major cliffhanger, and he wasn’t kidding, as last night’s outing saw

The Flash Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3

The fate of The Flash is revealed in "Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3," one of the most momentous episodes in Arrowverse history.




This The Flash review contains spoilers.

The Flash Season 6 Episode 9

Well. Here we are. "Crisis on Infinite Earths Part Three" is the big one. It's The episode we've been waiting for since the very first episode of The Flash. The one we knew that Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and friends always wanted to do so badly that they baked it into the very concept of the series from the pilot. The one that they spent five seasons and change reminding us would happen eventually at every possible opportunity.

I'm not sure I ever truly believed we would ever get here. Given that the original date on that infamous newspaper headline indicated that Crisis on Infinite Earths wasn't going to take place until 2024, few

Crisis On Infinite Earths Ep Explains Why Oliver Died So Early

We knew heading into “Crisis on Infinite Earths” that Oliver Queen was going to die. Last year’s crossover “Elseworlds” heavily hinted that the Green Arrow had made a deal with the Monitor to exchange his own life so that Flash and Supergirl could live. This was then confirmed in the Arrow season 7 finale and reiterated ever since. What we didn’t expect, though, was for it to happen in the opening episode of the event.

Sunday’s “Part 1” saw the Emerald Archer perish while protecting the people of Earth-38. He managed to ensure a further billion refugees survived the trip to Earth-1, though his battle with the Anti-Monitor’s Shadow Demons cost him his life. The Monitor was shocked by his death, saying that this was not the way he had foreseen it occurring. Fans felt much the same way, too, as we all thought Ollie would last until

‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Team Talks Oliver’s Fate and Batwoman’s Big Move (Spoilers)
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Two,” the “Batwoman” episode of the 2019 “Arrowverse” crossover.

The second hour of the CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover killed off another iconic hero — but brought one back.

After Oliver (Stephen Amell) sacrificed himself in event’s first episode, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Oliver’s daughter, Mia (Katherine McNamara), refused to accept his death was permanent.

In an attempt to reverse course, they recruited a very reluctant Sara (Caity Lotz) to find a Lazarus Pit in the multiverse to revive the fallen hero. Thanks to an assist from Constantine (Matt Ryan), they were able to bring back Oliver — but without his soul.

With the Pit revivals traditionally leading to extreme aggression, “it’s not just an easy transformation that you go in the Pit and then you’re back,” “Arrow” executive producer Beth Schwartz points out.

How ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Went Back to ‘Smallville’

  • The Wrap
(Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Part 2 of The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths”)

“Crisis On Infinite Earths” paid a visit to Kansas during Part 2 on Monday, finally giving fans their “Smallville” reunion. It may have been a brief scene, but it finally allowed viewers to see Tom Welling return to his old role as a pre-Superman Clark Kent, picking up him and Lois Lane (Erica Durance) some 10 years later.

But for fans who were hoping they would finally see Welling put on the famous blue tights and red cape, they were probably left a bit disappointed.

Though some shots of newspaper clippings featuring Welling’s days as the Man of Steel could be seen, he reveals to a recently-revived Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) — who is on his own mission of eliminating every single Superman in the multi-verse — that he gave up his powers. The fact that is

‘Crisis’ Showrunner Explains Why That Big Moment Happened Way Earlier Than Expected
(Warning: The following story contains Major spoilers from Part 1 of “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”)

“Crisis on Infinite Earths” ended its universe-spanning first part with a moment that many viewers were probably expecting to happen closer towards the end of the epic, five-part saga: The death of Oliver Queen.

Queen’s (Robbie Amell) impending doom has been heavily teased over the last year, beginning with the “Elseworlds” crossover a year ago, when Oliver makes a deal with the Monitor (Lamonica Garrett). Then in the Season 7 finale of “Arrow” last spring, the show essentially told viewers that Queen would perish during the “Crisis” event.

“The dilemma that we presented to our own selves was that we spoiled our own story,” Marc Guggenheim, who is showrunning the “Crisis” crossover, told reporters last week, following a screening of the first episode. “If Oliver dying isn’t the surprise, what is the surprise? The timing of him dying.

‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’: CW’s Huge Superhero Crossover Event Begins
Spoiler Warning: This article reveals key plot points from Sunday night’s episode of Supergirl.

Saving the entire Earth from impending destruction used to be a pretty big deal in the superhero business but times have changed. After a decade of globe-threatening screen menaces it’s not as easy as it used to be to stir the souls of film and TV fans who have watched megalomaniacal threats come and go faster than Carrie Bradshaw cycled through boyfriends on Sex and the City.

Which brings us to the CW and “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” the all-hands-on-deck crossover event that began tonight with Supergirl and, as its title hints, raises the stakes by posing a threat to the entire multiverse (!) and all the alternate versions of earth that hang in the celestial ether like blue-green

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One,” the premiere of the 2019 “Arrowverse” crossover event on the CW.

The “Arrowverse” “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover kicked off with a bang: Oliver Queen aka the Green Arrow’s (Stephen Amell) death.

With “Crisis” finally here, Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson) recruited a group of heroes — including Green Arrow, The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Batwoman (Ruby Rose), Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), White Canary (Caity Lotz) and The Atom (Brandon Routh) — and put them on Earth-38 (where “Supergirl” is set) to try and save the day.

As the heroes realized they couldn’t save the planet, they instead opted to rescue its inhabitants, boarding them on ships in the hopes of transporting them to a different Earth. But when the fight got to be too much, The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett) appeared, transporting most of the team to safety.

Crisis on Infinite Earths producers reached out to Nicolas Cage for Superman guest appearance

Tonight sees the beginning on this year’s hotly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover, a small screen adaptation of the iconic – and DC Universe-altering – Crisis on Infinite Earths featuring heroes not only from Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Batwoman but also Black Lightning, Smallville, The WB’s short-lived Birds of Prey, and even the 60s Batman TV series.

As we know, Supergirl star Tyler Hoechlin won’t be the only Superman appearing in the Crisis event, as Legends and Superman Returns star Brandon Routh will be portraying a Kingdom Come-inspired version of the Man of Steel, and Smallville’s Tom Welling will also be back as Clark Kent for the first time since the conclusion of the fan favourite series back in 2011.

Well, it seems the producers were hoping to entice another Superman to join the party – albeit one who never actually got to realise the role…

Crisis on Infinite Earths Batman is a Cautionary Tale

Mike Cecchini Dec 10, 2019

Kevin Conroy tells us about the version of Bruce Wayne, and the legacy of Batman, on Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is going to bring surprises on a cosmic scale. When the tagline is "worlds will live, worlds will die, and nothing will ever be the same," it's a safe bet that nothing will be done as half measures. The Arrowverse crossover event will span episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, and its multiverse-spanning story allows for DC fans of several generations to indulge in some of their fondest fan service wishes. Whether it's the return of Smallville stars Tom Welling and Erica Durance as the Clark Kent and Lois of a parallel world, John Wesley Shipp once again reprising his role as the Barry Allen of Earth-90, or Brandon Routh putting on the red-and-blue of the Man of

Crisis On Infinite Earths To Feature At Least Six Surprise Characters

There’s been some discussion from fans about whether too much has been revealed in the run-up to “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” With the Arrowverse crossover due to see the entire multiverse at threat, many iconic faces from across DC history are dropping by for either key supporting roles or cameos. A significant number have been already officially confirmed, too, which has left some upset that these surprises have been spoiled.

But maybe we don’t have anything to worry about, as Ep Marc Guggenheim has now promised that there’s plenty more where they came from. In an interview with IndieWire, the producer revealed that there are at least six surprise characters involved in the first three episodes of the event alone that fans have no idea about.

“I like how there are at least six characters who appear in the first three hours that we haven’t announced.

Nicolas Cage Was Approached To Play Superman In Crisis On Infinite Earths

One of the most fascinating “what ifs” in DC history is the aborted Superman Lives movie from the 1990s that had Nicolas Cage locked in for the lead. Though he’s known to be a massive fan of the Man of Steel – he named his son Kal-El, after all – Cage was such a left-field choice for the role that Supes lovers have always wondered what it would’ve been like to see him play the character. Well, it turns out we could’ve finally got this in “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”

In an interview with IndieWire, Arrowverse Ep Marc Guggenheim revealed that The CW did reach out to Cage to see if he would want to be a part of the upcoming DC TV crossover. The producer didn’t reveal exactly why he couldn’t do it, but he did lay out a few reasons why various stars that were

‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Team Describes the Massive Effort It Took to Pull Off The CW’s Ambitious Crossover

  • The Wrap
The CW has spent the last year teasing its epic “Crisis on Infinite Earths” event, which begins on Sunday and brings together the entire “Arrowverse” in an unprecedented TV event whose plot spans both multiple timelines and an infinite number of realities.

The upcoming five-part event features not one, not two, but three different versions of Superman, two Lois Lanes, a futuristic Bruce Wayne, and a slew of characters that last appeared during the days of The WB. It’s the culmination of the last eight years, which began with “Arrow” in 2012 and now includes six different series.

Speaking with reporters Thursday at The CW’s Burbank offices, Marc Guggenheim, who is serving of showrunner for the “Crisis” event, described the production of the crossover as being “three-dimensional chess with Rubik’s cubes.” Guggenheim, who has been with the “Arrowverse” since its inception, spearheaded the effort with the help of each show’s individual showrunners.

‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’: Showrunner Marc Guggenheim on Plotting The CW’s Six-Show Crossover Event

  • Indiewire
On Sunday, December 8, The CW kicks off its latest and most ambitious Arrowverse crossover event, “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” Based on the iconic DC Comics story of the same name, “Crisis” is a five-episode event, airing across the five Arrowverse series: “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Batwoman.”

Featuring guest appearances and cameos from actors who have played DC characters in non-Arrowverse properties, reprising their roles—such as “Smallville’s” Clark Kent, Tom Welling, and Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman in “Batman: The Animated Series”—the crossover will also see Cress Williams’ Black Lightning (from “Black Lightning”) join an Arrowverse crossover for the first time ever, making this officially a six-show crossover.

‘Arrowverse’ Boss Breaks Down Journey to ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’

  • Variety
It’s an event nearly 500 hours in the making when the “Arrowverse” and fellow CW superhero series “Black Lightning” collide in the five-part epic crossover event, “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”

Inspired by the iconic graphic novel by the same name, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” finds the “Arrowverse” heroes — including Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Batwoman (Ruby Rose), Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), White Canary (Caity Lotz) and The Atom (Brandon Routh) — teaming up to try and save as many worlds in the multiverse as possible.

The event has, officially, been in the works for a year, when the writers of the “Arrowverse” discovered they’d be allowed to adapt “Crisis” while they were penning the 2018 crossover, “Elseworlds.”

“This was news that was met with incredible excitement by all of us,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells Variety. “We were like, ‘Ok this is exciting because we know
