The Arrowverse’s big three-part crossover ended last night and it was a lot of fun, but the last minute of the crossover was truly unprecedented. It contained the announcement of a sequel to the crossover in 2019, and its title: Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Last night, the final part of the CW’s big DC crossover for the year, Elseworlds, aired its conclusion. It had everything it could possibly jam into 40 minutes of superhero TV, and then some—and ramifications for the entire Arrowverse so huge, we had to do a little bit of crossing over ourself to discuss it.
Elseworlds, this year’s big DC/CW crossover, is upon us—kicking off in last night’s episode of The Flash, the mysterious Monitor made his move... and gave us an hour of giggle-inducing metahumor in the process, along with some pretty key character moments for TV’s finest heroes. It was so huge, Gizmodo needed a teamup of its own to discuss!
You really can't tell a good Superman story without, at some point, introducing Lois Lane. She's crucial to Superman's character. More crucial even than either set of parents or villains like Lex Luthor. She humanises the character and allows him to have flaws and weaknesses and interesting feelings that are unrelated to Kryptonite.
The CW’s annual superhero crossover events are always interesting if only because they’re an opportunity for all of the network’s characters to get together and bring things out in one another that we don’t typically see in them. The biggest switch up at the heart of this year’s Elseworlds is obviously the Flash and the Green Arrow swapping identities. But in the latest trailer, we get our first look at Superman sporting his classic black costume, which might have a very particular significance to it.
Sure, Batman might just be a myth that Oliver Queen gets to gleefully namedrop every once in a while on Arrow. But at long last, a new Dark Knight has risen in all her glory. It’s time for Batwoman to begin her televisual reign!

Doctor Sleep adds another young star. The ALF reboot is dead. The Walking Dead’s showrunner hints at some interesting plans to integrate some key stories from the comics. Plus, the first tiny teaser look at the new Child’s Play, a glimpse at Sabrina’s holiday special, and a giant octopus attacks on Legends of Tomorrow. To me, my spoilers!
On this season of The Flash, fans have noted something odd with one of the team: Joe West, played by Jesse L. Martin, hasn't really done much other than be seated at pretty much every available opportunity. Well, there's a reason for that — and it's a sad one that means Martin won't actually be on The Flash for a while.
Ever since Barry and Iris’ daughter from the future Nora showed up on The Flash, she’s had a very frosty relationship with her mother, for reasons that have mostly been left to linger in the background.
That is, until “News Flash” finally brought it to the forefront.
Hoo boy. In an effort to explore what turns a mild-mannered professor into a xenophobic fascist in a mask, Supergirl decided to do an entire episode from the little guy’s point of view. It was a frequently fabulous exploration of one of the most fundamental conflicts in Super-mythos — also it makes the Super Squad look like massive dicks.
