Crisis on Infinite Earths connected Ryan Reynolds’ infamous Green Lantern film to the Arrowverse.
The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths featured several appearances and nods to actors from previous DC projects, but fans might have missed a nod to the Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds. The events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover resulted in our heroes defeating the Anti-Monitor and creating a brand new multiverse that dramatically reshaped the Arrowverse.
As the new multiverse was born, the late Oliver Queen provided narration as footage from various DC worlds appeared on screen, including a brief shot of the Green Lantern Corps HQ on Earth-12. The footage in question was taken from a scene towards the end of the 2011 Green Lantern film in which Ryan Reynolds’ Hal Jordan is congratulated by the corps for his heroic actions.

Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern was released to poor reviews and bombed at the box office, prompting Warner Bros. to cancel further plans for the character. Now, Green Lantern is set to be rebooted with a new actor succeeding Ryan Reynolds in the role.
The Green Lantern Corps movie is currently in development with Geoff Johns on board as a writer and producer. Full details on Green Lantern Corps are being kept under lock and key, though the project will draw inspiration from Geoff Johns’ work on the New 52 Green Lantern comics with both Hal Jordan and John Stewart set to appear in the film. Furthermore, HBO Max announced that a Green Lantern series is being developed for the streaming service by Arrowverse mastermind Greg Berlanti.
Here is the official synopsis for the Crisis on Infinite Earths finale:
THE EARTH-SHATTERING “CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS” CROSSOVER CONCLUDES – “Worlds lived, worlds died. Nothing will ever be the same.” Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu and Ubah Mohamed.
