Green Arrow Crisis On Infinite Earths Arrowverse Elseworlds Arrow The Flash The CW

During the CW Upfronts presentation, the network announced all five Arrrowverse shows will part of the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.

While the heroes of the Arrowverse were able to thwart the latest threat to Earth in the Elseworlds crossover, the three-part event concluded by revealing the next crossover will be titled Crisis On Infinite Earths. Now, The CW has confirmed the five-hour Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover will consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman.

The network also revealed the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover will air over two quarters, meaning the event will likely consist of midseason finales and midseason premieres for the Arrowverse shows. The Crisis On Infinite Earths episode of Arrow may also serve as it’s series finale considering the show is set to return for a 10-episode final season in fall.

The Crisis on Infinite Earths event has been teased since the pilot episode of The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Scarlet Speedster is fated to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of The Flash set up the early arrival of the crisis when the original newspaper from the future suddenly changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019.

Furthermore, the seventh season finale of Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover by having the Emerald Archer join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the upcoming event. The mission was part of the arrangement Oliver Queen made in exchange for saving The Flash and Supergirl’s lives in Elseworlds.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen 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

Michael Fassbender X-Men

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

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

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.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

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

Jon Hamm Mad Men

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

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

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.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

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.
