The CW’s epic Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover is currently filming, and with that comes many leaked set photos. Now it seems some recently surfaced images may have confirmed a major fan theory about the Arrowverse.
Major fan theory related to Arrowverse with the recently surfaced images
For some time, fans have theorized that the Crisis will merge the different earths of The CW shows into one singular world, seemingly uniting the universes of Supergirl, Arrow, and Black Lightning. For the most part, this has appeared to be a longshot, but new set photos may prove otherwise.
On the set of Supergirl‘s episode of the crossover, individuals who witnessed the filming revealed some details. According to Canadagraphs, a scene was shot featuring hundreds of extras moving towards a “spaceship” while someone could be heard yelling into a megaphone “No need to panic, Supergirl and Superman are working hard to save this planet.” Based on this and other details provided by Canadagraphs, it sounds as though the planet is being evacuated in the wake of the Crisis.
Within the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic event, DC decided to eliminate their multiverse in favor of one single unified Universe. When this year’s CW crossover was announced to be adapting the iconic storyline, many fans began to theorize that the event would do the same for the Arrowverse’s multiverse.
By combining the different universes into one, this would make crossovers between the shows much easier on the writers, with potential crossovers all that much easier. It could also help ease the potential formation of a sort of Justice League with all the Arrowverse heroes able to participate.
What do you think of these set photos? Will they unite the worlds in the crossover?
