Grant Gustin’s The Flash leads the charge against the Anti-Monitor in a new Crisis on Infinite Earths set photo.
The stunt double for Grant Gustin’s The Flash was spotted today while a major sequence for Crisis on Infinite Earths was being filmed in a sequence involving superheroes from across the entire line of Arrowverse shows. Befitting of the nature of that crossover, the Anti-Monitor is the big threat that the DC Multiverse of heroes must join together to defeat, although he isn’t present in the shot.

Aside from Grant Gustin’s The Flash, the other heroes that can be spotted for the big action sequence of Crisis on Infinite Earths include Superman, Supergirl, Batwoman, Black Canary, Alex Danvers, Martian Manhunter, Spartan, Dreamer, and Wild Dog. White Canary was also spotted on the set, but was not seen in this photo. Since Grant Gustin’s The Flash will become one of the leading faces in the Arrowverse after this crossover, it’s appropriate that he’s near the front of the charge.
Crisis on Infinite Earths has been teased since the very first episode of The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of the Grant Gustin series accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement the Emerald Archer made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
Full details on the sixth season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash are being kept under lock and key, but Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has joined the cast as DC Comics villain Bloodwork. In the comics, Bloodwork is a Central City morgue employee and hemophiliac who developed the ability to transform his flesh into blood-like physiology after experimenting with blood properties. The new season has also been teased to include an antagonist who will be the most personal villain Grant Gustin’s The Flash has faced since Eobard Thawne.
The Flash season six will also lead into The CW’s adaptation of Crisis on Infinite Earths and the back-half of the season will deal with the fallout from the upcoming five-part crossover event. With Arrow coming to an end this fall after concluding its eight-episode final season, The Flash will also become The CW’s main DC Comics drama after Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen will seemingly lead the other Arrowverse superheroes forward.
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
The Flash season six premieres on October 8, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news on Grant Gustin, The Flash, and Crisis on Infinite Earths!
