DC fans unite! We’re getting another star-studded Arrowverse crossover event, the 6th to be specific. And this one is pulling out all the stops. Literally. Crisis On Infinite Earths will be everything that Justice League should have and could have been.
There are so many amazing casting choices already! And by casting we mean bringing specific characters in to make this the best thing to happen in our lifetime. We know… We sound exaggerated… But let us just tell you who you can expect to see on the screen.
First, let us explain what Crisis On Infinite Earths is. It will be a 5 episode event that will take place over 5 different DC shows. The shows featuring the event are Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow in that respective order.
The event plot is said to follow the Elseworlds crossover event that aired last year, which then was only a 3 part event. But with the new (old) characters coming into play and two new shows in the mix, the two extra parts will be needed.
So who can you expect? Here is the confirmed casting.
Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El / Kara Danvers / Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent / Superman
Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibney / Elongated Man, Tom Cavanaugh as Harrison Wells, Pariah, Eobard Thawne / Reverse Flash
Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen / Green Arrow / Other versions of Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle / Spartan
Ruby Rose as Kate Kane / Batwoman
Legends of Tomorrow
Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer / Atom
Some extra special confirmed guest spots
LaMonica Garrett as Mar Novu / Monitor / Anti-Monitor.
Tom Welling reprising his role as Clark Kent from Smallville.
John Wesley Shipp, who played The Flash in his own series in 1990-1991, will be playing an undisclosed role.
Brandon Routh, though he plays Atom he will also be playing a Kingdom Come version of Superman. This is especially special because Routh played Clark in the 2001 film Superman Returns.
Kevin Conroy, who voiced Bruce in Batman: The Animated Series, will be making a special appearance as an old Bruce Wayne.
Cress Williams will be making an appearance as his role as Black Lightning.
Ashley Scott, who played Huntress in the 2002 show Birds of Prey, will be reprising her role.
Tom Ellis‘ Lucifer Morningstar as seen in his show Lucifer.
Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne, as seen in the 1989 Batman movie.
Dean Cain, who played “Clark Kent” in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, as another “Superman” or reprising his role as Kara’s adoptive father.
The cast of DC Universe‘s Titans may be making an appearance, as well.
Mark Hamill who voices the legendary Joker in practically every animated short, show, and movie. (We’d give our right arm to make this one happen).
