Arrowverse fans are on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the next crossover event between the shows, Crisis on Infinite Earths. Well we just got more news to be excited about. For the first time Black Lightning characters will be part of the action! CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed:
“The whole theory of ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ is that alternative universes collapse,” Pedowitz told reporters Sunday. “This is a DC property. We felt that it might be the right time if [executive producer Salim Akil] was interested in doing it. We had a conversation with Salim, and he said, yes, it made a lot of sense to make the connection at this point. He’s in his own universe. He is doing his own thing. We would not have done it if he had not signed off on it.”
In addition to announcing those two castings, The CW also revealed when “Crisis on Infinite Earths” will begin with Supergirl on Sunday, Dec 8; followed by Batwoman on Monday, Dec. 9 and The Flash on Tuesday, Dec. 10. Following the winter hiatus, the crossover will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 14 with Arrow at 8 p.m. and Legends of Tomorrow at 9:00 p.m.
