After this year’s Avengers: Endgame, the bar was set kind of high for crossovers. At the same time, Warner Bros. has had a rough time getting their superhero franchises off the ground. Don’t tell that to their television division, which has had a huge following that it’s nearly dominated their entire network. So, when they announced Crisis of Infinite Earths during last year’s crossover, no one kind of understood the undertaking the crossover was committing to.
While fans have been chomping at the bit for their first glimpse of the event, the CW just released their first 15-second video promoting the event, which begins in less than a month. The teaser includes a dramatic shot of J’onn J’onnz (the Martian Manhunter), Sara Lance (White Canary), Barry Allen (The Flash), Kara Danvers (Supergirl), Lex Luthor — who apparently got a new lease on life from The Monitor’s visit in Supergirl‘s fourth season finale — and Kate Kane (Batwoman), looking ready to rumble. Though somewhat difficult to make out, it also appears that newcomer Ryan Choi (played by Osric Chau) is standing by their side.
Additionally, this brief teaser includes shots of Black Lightning, Brandon Routh as Superman, and Oliver arriving on the scene — with daughter Mia and Batwoman in tow — proclaiming, “We’ve got your back.”
It was recently announced that Kevin Smith, who directed several episodes of Supergirl and The Flash, will be hosting a Crisis of Infinite Earths aftershow on Sunday, Dec. 8 (9/8c) and Tuesday, Dec. 10 (9 pm), which will allow viewers a chance to digest everything they’ve taken in.
And while we’re at it, here’s a full breakdown of when the Crisis of Infinite Earths episodes will air:
Supergirl: Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 pm (special time)
Batwoman: Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 pm (special day)
The Flash: Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 pm
Arrow: Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 8 pm (special time)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 9 pm (special episode)
