Crisis On Infinite Earths Producer Explains Why Green Arrow Is Missing From The Title Card

Crisis On Infinite Earths is knocking on the door and Arrowverse heroes are getting ready to face their biggest challenge yet. Already a little sneak peek and the title card of the big crossover event has been released. But a keen eyed fan has noticed that something is odd in the title card.

The Crisis logo has been liked and shared all over the internet once it fully dropped with the little sneak peek. This latest version shows the leading characters from the shows- Flash, White Canary, Supergirl and Batwoman, all being represented. Along with them is Mar Novu, the Monitor. All of them seem ready to face the Anti-Monitor. But a keen eyed fan has noticed that one hero is missing from the entire lineup. It is the hero who started the entire Arrowverse- Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. It’s certainly odd that the hero who should have been featured first didn’t even get a physical depiction in a title card where all the heroes are put. In his place is simply a green arrow-head. While it’s a nice play on his superhero name, but fans would certainly have loved to see Oliver Queen himself there. This has hurt fans more especially since this is Arrow’s last season. Although a spin-off is in works.

Marc Guggenheim Explains The Reason Behind This

The question found its way back to “Crisis” producer Marc Guggenheim, who cleared it up. He said in his tweet:

“Believe it or not… legal and financial issues. The number of things — little things — that #$@% us up constantly…you can’t imagine.”

Check out his tweet below:

 

Although he didn’t offer any further classification for this but we are really intrigued about what legal issues could be there with putting Stephen Amell’s face on a letter of the title card.

Crisis On Infinite Earths begins Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Supergirl, then continues in Batwoman on Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in The Flash on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. After the winter hiatus, the crossover will conclude on Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Arrow at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Before you get ready to see Oliver Queen one last time for Crisis, take a nostalgia ride to see the journey he has taken throughout these 7 seasons of Arrow:
