Arrowverse’s Crisis On Earth-X: DC’s Reply To Marvel

Arrow Season 6 Episode 2


Warner Bros is going all out aggressive after the emergence of Defenders onto the TV screen. In the most recent development CW has released a massive news for the future of its TV universe. Warner Bros feels to be taking the comic book universe more seriously and is adapting the Crisis on Earth story line to its TV verse. The latest story line will be featured in the Arrowverse and will be titled Crisis On Earth-X

Marvel recently launched the Defenders which like the Avengers was highly appreciated by the fans. Warner Bros in competition decided to fuse its own universe into one. And the good part is that they are leaving no one behind. Yes you heard it right folks, Flash, Super girl, Arrow and The Legends of Tomorrow will all be united under one flag to save the day in the crossover which is titled Crisis On Earth-X

As reported by Heroic Hollywood, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg (Executive producers) in a joint statement regarding the show said that

We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids. Phil was the perfect choice to bring the comic book cover iteration of this idea to life. You can count on one hand the number of artists who could compellingly represent so many characters in a single image. Phil is one of them. And his design invokes the cover of Justice League #207, which was the 20th annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our 10-year-old selves are in heaven.”

While Marvel may have the first mover’s advantage in bringing Defenders to the big screen we believe DC’s plan might be more versatile. The TV Flash and the movie Flash belong to two different universes. We expect the TV versions of Batman, Superman, Aqua Man, Cyborg and Wonder Women also to appear. We might then get a very unique and different Justice League TV series. Or on the contrary DC might also consider a cross over between the TV and the movie universe.
