Crisis on Infinite Earths Review

(Welcome to The Clock Tower, where we’ll break down the goings on of the The CW network’s Arrowverse. We’ll touch on things like themes, cultural impact, lead-ins to major events, ships, and more every week! Warning: this Clock Tower is filled with spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.)

Every major event, whether it be on the big screen or small, tells you that its world will never be the same by the time the credits roll. I’m pleasantly surprised to report that Crisis on Infinite Earths managed to deliver on that promise in spades. After a long break, the Arrowverse’s biggest crossover yet concluded in a spectacular fashion. Though I personally felt that the first three episodes were stronger as a whole, a lot went down in the last two episodes that truly does change the landscape of DC forever.

Green Lantern - Grant Morrison

WarnerMedia had its first Television Critics Association panel for HBO Max since they named their upcoming streaming service. HBO Max Chief Content Officer Kevin Reilly previewed the service last year, but it was still untitled at the time. In their October investor presentation, HBO Max revealed one of their originals is a Green Lantern series from producer Greg Berlanti.

Reilly had an update on Berlanti’s Green Lantern series for the TCA. That led to further questions for Reilly about the future of DC Universe, the company’s current standalone streaming service with originals Titans, Doom Patrol, Harley Quinn and the short-lived Swamp Thing.

stargirl trailer

It’s been a confusing day for girls named Stargirl. First, Disney+ releases the trailer for Stargirl, a coming-of-age drama film based on the novel of the same name by Jerry Spinelli. Then the CW follows up with its own Stargirla new superhero series about a teenage girl (Brec Bassinger) who discovers latent superpowers. There’s not much in common between the two properties, other than the shared name and that they’re both magical girls (the Disney one being about a classic manic pixie dream girl). But the CW series looks pretty promising and even co-stars Luke Wilson. Watch the Stargirl trailer below.

The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover just got a whole lot bigger. The multiverse-spanning crossover event, which was the Arrowverse’s most ambitious enterprise yet, had already pulled off cameos from beloved TV properties like Smallville, Batman: The Animated Series, and had Brandon Routh pulling double duty as a Kingdom Come-inspired Superman. However, last night’s finale brought in a cameo that drew a connection between the TV Arrowverse and the films’ DC Extended Universe.

Spoilers ahead for The Flash and Crisis on Infinite Earths.
