Marc Guggenheim revealed that he’s already pitched the next Arrowverse crossover after Crisis On Infinite Earths.
The showrunner behind the latest Arrowverse crossover recently revealed to TVLine that he’s begun working on the next event after Crisis On Infinite Earths, explaining that it might not be as grand as the recent universe-shattering set of episodes. He mentioned that he’ll be doing a “post mortem” on Crisis On Infinite Earths to not only see what they did right but also how they can improve in the Arrowverse’s future.
“I would say I have ‘ideas for ideas,’ and I’ve sort of pitched to Mark Pedowitz and Greg Berlanti what, if left to my own devices, I would like to see us do. There is a rubric that is semi in place… and both Mark and Greg have signed off on that, and as we go onward, things will get more and more specific. I was emailing Mark just the other day, that we have to all get in a room together to talk about this. We typically do a post mortem about what went right, what went wrong, what did we learn… We always learn something.”
The showrunner went on to say that the comparisons to Avengers: Endgame seem unfair since Crisis On Infinite Earths was working with a significantly smaller budget than the Marvel film. He also explaining that the next time all the Arrowverse heroes meet up, it won’t be for an event quite as big as Crisis On Infinite Earths, teasing that they were discussing returning to their roots. Take a look at Marc Guggenheim teasing the next Arrowverse crossover after Crisis On Infinite Earths below.
“Look, I hate comparisons to [Avengers:] Endgame, because it’s just not fair – we’re working with Endgame‘s catering budget – but Marvel didn’t follow up Endgame with Endgame 2,” he explained. “I think you’ve got to build to an event of this kind. The one thing we’re all in agreement on – cast, crew executives, you name it – is that we’re not going to go as big next year. In fact, Mark [Pedowitz] and I were talking about ‘returning to the roots’ of our crossovers, and I’ll leave it to people to interpret what that means.”
