The Anti-Monitor is the main antagonist in the iconic Crisis on Infinite Earths comic book storyline that was released in 1985. In the narative, the Anti-Monitor goes head-to-head with his brother the Monitor, who LaMonica Garrett currently plays in the Arrowverse.
Official plot details for remain under wraps, but wild rumors have suggested the Arrowverse landscape will look drastically different from the one we know after 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.
The upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” But the fifth season finale of The Flash 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 Oliver Queen made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Melissa Supergirl.
