That was cool seeing the teaser at the end of the episode last night! Now it makes sense that Psycho Pirate showed up in the last 2 cross-over episodes. As the story speculated, I wonder if it will just be next year's cross-over or if this will be the running theme through all of the DC TV shows.  Hopefully it's the latter. I really did not enjoy Diaz being the main bad guy from last season through the first half of Arrow this season, and ditto for Cicada on The Flash. It would be cool to see the Crisis theme building up in each series and then we get a big cross-over of all 4 shows.

I'd love for it to merge the Earths into one and fix some issues each show has.

Holy! Crisis keeps getting deeper in DC historic portrayals.

Quote

The CW's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" is set to present a DC TV event unlike anything we've seen before, and it looks like they're enlisting some familiar faces to do so. ComicBook.com was on hand for the Batwoman panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where was revealed that legendary actor Burt Ward, who portrayed Robin in the 1960s Batman TV series, will be playing a role in "Crisis".

 

It is unknown at this point whether Ward will be playing a version of Robin, or if he will be embodying some new character. The Arrowverse has certainly toyed with legacy casting in the past, with Lynda Carter, Dean Cain, and Helen Slater all playing new characters within the universe. The Flash has dabbled with both sides of that equation, between Mark Hamill returning as The Trickster to John Wesley-Shipp playing both his Barry Allen from the 1990s The Flash, and a new iteration of Jay Garrick.

The event, which is slated to air over two months in the upcoming winter, has booked several alums from DC Comics adaptations from the past. Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) is slipping back into his Supes tights. Tom Welling (Smallville) is also coming back as one of many Supermen from Infinite Earths. Jon Cryer will reprise his role of Lex Luthor.

 

Of course, we're most excited for the return of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman. Yes, according to Cosmic Book News, the '70s icon will once again portray Diana, Princess of Paradise Island. 

 

Now, here's where it gets a little confusing. Carter has already appeared in the Arrowverse on Supergirl as President of the United States Olivia Marsden.

:whatthe:

If this is real with all these former DC superhero actors, this little crossover is getting bigger and bigger.

EXCLUSIVE: TOM WELLING, LYNDA CARTER RETURNING FOR CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS

WB is going all out for their upcoming Arrowverse Crisis On Infinite Earths event as Tom Welling and Lynda Carter are in talks to return. A source at Comic-Con has filled me in on details regarding the crossover, which I'll say is bigger than anyone thought.

 

Tom Welling, of course, is known for Smallville and will reprise his character, with Lynda Carter having played the '70s Wonder Woman. Carter actually appeared in episodes of Supergirl, but she will be back as Wonder Woman.

 

Comic-Con also saw it announced that Brandon Routh will suit up as the Kingdom Come Superman side by side the Tyler Hoechlin Man of Steel.

 

Burt Ward, the '66 Robin from the Batman series, was also announced at Comic-Con to be appearing in Crisis on Infinite Earths, which is a comic book story that involves multiple Earths and universes, something the Arrowverse has already touched upon but is expanding for the Crisis event series.

During an interview at Comic Con International in San Diego last month, Stephen Amell told ComicBook.com that he wants Tom Welling to appear in the upcoming "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover event. The Arrow star, who is heading into his final season as a title lead as part of the interconnected universe of DC Comics TV series he helped launch, says he's siding with fans who have been asking for Smallville to be represented basically since the day Arrow came into being.

 

“I would want Tom Welling,” Amell told ComicBook.com when we asked who he would recruit for "Crisis" if he could. “I want what the fans want.”

 

During another recent interview, Welling's longtime co-star Kristin Kreuk told ComicBook.com that she would appear in "Crisis on Infinite Earths" if asked.

 

"I'd be open to it. Sure, why not?" Kreuk said, explaining that she still feels connected to the fans of Smallville and touched that it continues to have a legacy.
