Crisis on Infinite Earths Confirmed as 2019 Arrowverse Crossover

at .

The next Arrowverse crossover is already confirmed. 

At the close of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 9 aka Elseworlds, Part Three, Batwoman (Ruby Rose) contacted Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and wasted no time in telling her new frenemy that there was something off about Dr. John Deegan.

Simply put, he's got a new friend in Roger Hayden aka Psycho-Pirate from the world of DC Comics. 

“Everything is as it should be, the stage is set…,” Hayden, said while wearing the iconic Psycho-Pirate’s golden mask said to Arkham Asylum's newest inmate. “The universe will never be the same.”

That's when we got our first look at the title card for 2019's big event, and it's pretty darn awesome. 

Have a look for yourself.

Yes, that title is "Crisis on Infinite Earths."

While plot details are scarce, that was the title used for a DC graphic novel that was released back in 2003

But what was it about?

This is the story that changed the DC Universe forever. A mysterious being known as the Anti-Monitor has begun a crusade across time to bring about the end of all existence.

As alternate earths are systematically destroyed, the Monitor quickly assembles a team of super-heroes from across time and space to battle his counterpart and stop the destruction.

DC's greatest heroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Aquaman, assemble to stop the menace, but as they watch both the Flash and Supergirl die in battle, they begin to wonder if even all of the heroes in the world can stop this destructive force.

It's certainly an early announcement when you consider the fact that Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow have not been renewed for the 2019-2020 season. 

Yes, DC's Legends of Tomorrow was the unlucky show who stayed out of this year's Elseworlds crossover, but it's hard to imagine it not taking part in the next big superhero team-up.

There's also the possibility that this could spell the end of the multiverse and that we could wind up with one superhero universe. 

Time will tell.

Arrow Quotes

Tatsu: Sometimes, the mission is not worth the cost. You know that. So, why are you still doing what he asks?
Oliver: Because if I'm wrong, if I'm wrong then all of this is for nothing. Do you understand Tatsu? I left Felicity, I left my children. So if, if The Monitor can't fix this and if he is not here to help then all of these things that I have sacrificed and all of the things that so many other people have already sacrificed will have been for nothing! I need my family to live. Which means that I need this to work.
Tatsu: You are risking too much.
Oliver: There is no other choice.
Tatsu: There is always another choice.

Every warrior must learn the simple truth -- that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional.
