The CW Releases First 3 Crisis on Infinite Earths Synopses
In just a few weeks, Crisis on Infinite Earths will shake the Arrowverse like never before. Unlike some previous crossovers, not every hero is gonna make it out alive. This five-part crossover event is based upon Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s 12-issue 1985 crossover that redefined the DC Universe. Now, The CW has released the synopses from the first three episodes of Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Supergirl will kick off the event on Sunday, December 8. Robert Rovner and Marc Guggenheim wrote the story, while the teleplay was written by Derek Simon and Jay Faerber.
THE KICKOFF TO THE EPIC TELEVISON CROSSOVER EVENT, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS – The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) sends Harbinger (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) to gather the worlds’ greatest heroes – Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Batwoman (guest star Ruby Rose), White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz), The Atom (guest star Brandon Routh) and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) – in preparation for the impending Crisis. With their worlds in imminent danger, the superheroes suit up for battle while J’onn (David Harewood) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) recruit Lena (Katie McGrath) to help them find a way to save the people of Earth-38.
On Monday, December 9, Batwoman will continue the event. Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson will write this episode, which heavily features various Supermen.
