The Flash vanishing cliffhanger at the end of the show’s pilot may have a key role on the next Arrowverse crossover, Crisis On Infinite Earths.
Todd Helbing, showrunner of The Flash, recently told TV Guide that they’ve been hinting at the Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline for a while and that the next crossover will be heavily influenced by Barry Allen’s already announced disappearance:
“We’ve certainly been teasing [the headline] a long time, but it’s a major factor in next year’s crossover. There will be little tidbits here and there that people will be able to start to put together.”
If you’re not familiar with the Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline from the comics, the story hinges on the Anti-Monitor trying to destroy all the versions of Earth of the Multiverse, while Brainiac recruits other villains to conquer what’s left. With this, the Monitor unites the superheroes to defeat the threat. Ultimately, heroes and villains band together and defeat the Anti-Monitor. This storyline is famous because of its death toll on the DC universe which includes none other than Barry Allen and Supergirl.
