The Flash actor Grant Gustin seems to have revealed a huge Crisis on Infinite Earths tease on his Instagram account.
Last fall, The CW’s Elseworlds crossover event closed out with the promise that the Arrowverse’s next major event would adapt the game-changing Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline from the comics. The network’s version of Crisis on Infinite Earths is expected to feature all the major heroes from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and even the upcoming Batwoman series starring Ruby Rose.
Earlier this week, Grant Gustin revealed a look at the first table read for the sixth season of The Flash on his Instagram story. An eagle-eyed Reddit user noticed the title for the second episode of the new season was visible in the post, something that Grant Gustin seemed to not notice before he shared it. The episode title itself is “A Flash of The Lightning,” which is a reference to the issue of Crisis on Infinite Earths that featured Barry Allen sacrificing himself in order to save the entire universe from the Anti-Monitor.
While plot details are still under wraps, wild rumors have suggested the Arrowverse will look incredibly different from the one fans have come to know and love after the events of Crisis On Infinite Earths. The crossover is rumored to feature the deaths of several major characters from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Official details are slim but The CW has confirmed that the five-hour Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event will air over two quarters. This may mean the event will consist of the midseason finales and midseason premieres for its Arrowverse shows. In addition, the Crisis On Infinite Earths episode of Arrow could also serve as the series finale being that the show is set to conclude with its final 10-episode run this fall.
Crisis On Infinite Earths has been teased since episode one of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, when a newspaper headline from the year 2024 teased Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” But the last season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019 in the finale. Adding to this, the seventh season finale of Arrow also set up Oliver Queen’s role in the crossover event by having him join LaMonica Garret’s Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement that Oliver Queen made to save the lives of both Grant Gustin’s The Flash and Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl.
A first look at season six of The Flash is expected to debut in just a few weeks at San Diego Comic-Con. On Saturday, July 20, the Batwoman pilot screening/Q&A will kick things off for The CW at 10:30 a.m. in Ballroom 20. In tow will be the final SDCC panel for Stephen Amell’s Arrow at 3:30 p.m., followed by the Supergirl panel at 4:15 p.m., the Black Lightning panel at 5 p.m., and Grant Gustin’s The Flash at 5:45 p.m. to round out the network’s content.
Details on season six of The Flash are currently under wraps, but the series is said to be casting a new male villain and a “socially awkward” scientist to appear opposite Grant Gustin. Filming is currently underway.
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 airs on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Grant Gustin series.
