The Supergirl episode of The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event features a nod to Christopher Reeve’s Superman II.
The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths kicked off with the latest episode of Supergirl and already featured a number of nods to past DC projects that are now officially part of the Arrwoverse’s multiverse. While an appearance by the late Christopher Reeve, whose performance as Superman in the Last Son of Krypton’s first feature is still widely regarded as the gold standard for portrayals of the hero, was out of the question for obvious reasons, the first chapter of Crisis on Infinite Earths still found a way to pay homage to iconic incarnation of the DC Comics character.
During the opening moments of the episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths, an unnamed character played by Wil Wheaton is seen holding a sign that warns the people of National City about the coming end of the world. During the first west coast commercial break for Crisis on Infinite Earths, Supergirl writer Jay Faerber pointed out the sign is identical to one seen in Christopher Reeve’s Superman II, right down to the font and format.
