Crisis on Infinite Earths is currently filming, and the first look at LaMonica Garrett as the Anti-Monitor on the set of the show has arrived.
The design given to LaMonica Garrett’s version of the Anti-Monitor is a departure from the original comics, as he has an appearance that’s been likened to the Night King from Game of Thrones rather than the robotic appearance of the villain in the iconic 1985 DC Comics crossover (who was admittedly wearing a helmet the entire time). Nonetheless, the design given to the Anti-Monitor is more in-line with more recent depictions of the character, so LaMonica Garrett’s take on the character is indeed comic-accurate.
After the initial Crisis on Infinite Earths teaser image showcasing what the Anti-Monitor looked like was revealed, we now have an idea of what the on-set costume that LaMonica Garrett is wearing thanks to Canadagraphs, and it doesn’t appear to be all that much different. You can see LaMonica Garrett’s Anti-Monitor on the Crisis on Infinite Earths set below.

LaMonica Garrett’s Anti-Monitor is a crucial element of Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it’s a bit surprising that we haven’t seen him earlier considering that the first episode of the crossover event will air a little over a month from now. Nonetheless, LaMonica Garrett’s Anti-Monitor will likely have a lot of screentime, given that he is the cause of the titular Crisis on Infinite Earths.
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.
Stay tuned for the latest news on LaMonica Garrett as the Anti-Monitor and Crisis on Infinite Earths!
