The sequel to next fall’s ” Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover has many fans excited. The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing says the show will give fans a chance to assemble the pieces to one of Arrowverse’s mysteries.
The pilot for The Flash highlighted a paper dated 10 years back with the headline “FLASH MISSING – VANISHES IN CRISIS.” A sub-headline further indicates the occasion with “RED SKIES VANISH,” suggesting the classic story line’s theme.
“We’ve certainly been teasing [the headline] a long time, but it’s a major factor in next year’s crossover,” The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing told TV Guide. “There will be little tidbits here and there that people will be able to start to put together.”

The crossover was declared toward the end of “Elseworlds” through a short scene and teaser. However, this season on The Flash, the popular headline has been a noteworthy story point. It has driven fans to buzz about the likelihood of “Crisis” even before it was reported.
“Greg [Berlanti] really has a sort of master plan of things, and I’m really excited about how it’s going to pay off,” Helbing told ComicBook.com back in November.
At the time, Grant Gustin recommended that it would be 2024 till story make it to TV. That ten-year timeline reflected what Gustin let us know at San Diego Comic-Con in 2017. He said,
“We don’t really talk about on a yearly basis but it was mentioned early on and that’s a goal. Obviously, we’d have to go I think ten years to reach that. So there’s a possibility for sure. It’ll be fun to get there.”
In the Crisis comics, Barry Allen dies while attacking the Anti-Monitor’s antimatter gun. He runs to the point that he rapidly ages and dies while encountering his past. After his gallant sacrifice, Wally West assumed the character’s mantle for over 20 years.
With a few hints dropped in “Elseworlds,” many fans expect that Oliver Queen will sacrifice himself. He will save Barry from his destiny while finishing a period that started with the Arrow pilot and propelled the DC TV universe.
The Flash airs on Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m, before Roswell New Mexico on The CW.
