It seems that the next Arrowverse crossover, Crisis On Infinite Earths, may kill off major characters in The CW DC universe from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
According to We Got This Covered, the Arrowverse landscape will look drastically different from the one we know and have come to love. It seems that Crisis On Infinite Earths will kill off several major characters from the network’s shows including Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Crisis On Infinite Earths is one the most famous storylines from DC comics. The story hinges on the Anti-Monitor trying to destroy all the versions of Earth of the Multiverse, while Brainiac recruits other villains to conquer what’s left. With this, the Monitor unites the superheroes to defeat the threat. Ultimately, heroes and villains band together and defeat the Anti-Monitor.
This storyline is famous because of its death toll on the DC universe which includes none other than Barry Allen and Supergirl. According to this report, it seems that we’ll see a very different CW superhero line-up after Crisis On Infinite Earths. This is also supported by the rumor that Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow may not be back for a ninth and sixth season, respectively.
Now, the million dollar question: Who do you think dies from Arrow and The Flash during Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event? Sound off in the comment section down below!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s eighth season will continue with an episode called Lucha de Apuestas next April 1 and it seems to be inspired by lucha libre, the Mexican sport derived from wrestling.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Brandon Routh, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Tala Ashe, Matt Ryan, Jes Macallan, and Courtney Ford.
In the meantime, check out the synopsis for the next Arrow episode Brothers and Sisters, which will reportedly feature a Birds of Prey team-up led by Caity Lotz’s Sara Lance:
DIGGLE AND LYLA DEPLOY THE GHOST INITIATIVE. After months of covertly pursuing Dante, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) finally have a solid lead on the elusive terrorist, so they deploy the ARGUS Ghost Initiative to apprehend him. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) tries to bond with Emiko (Sea Shimooka). Marcus Stokes directed the episode written by Rebecca Bellotto & Jeane Wong.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy, Echo Kellum, Juliana Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez, and Colton Haynes.
Brothers and Sisters will air Monday, March 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
Also, check out the synopsis for the next The Flash episode King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd:
THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN When Gorilla Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov) attacks Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash find themselves teaming up with an unexpected ally to defeat – King Shark (voiced by David Hayter). However, when they hit a snag, they bring in Dr. Tanya Lamden (guest star Zibby Allen) to try to reach the man behind the shark, Shay Lamden (guest star Dan Payne).

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
