Over here in the UK, the CW Elseworlds crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl hasn’t aired yet – it’s due to start this week – so I’ve been trying to avoid spoilers on the various news sites I read.
However, I couldn’t miss the news that, at the end of part 3 of the crossover, we get to see this:
Pretty much since The Flash started there’s been the newspaper from the future that shows the Flash disappearing in a Crisis and it’s long been suspected that it might happen; with this year’s crossover showing the arrival of The Monitor, it seems the hopes were well founded.
While I’ll be very happy to see what they do with this next year, you have to worry about Flash and Supergirl – neither of those characters survived the original Crisis in the comics . . .
Have to admit, I’m looking forward to this.
With the upcoming Elseworlds crossover between TV’s Flash, Arrow and Supergirl (still no word on why Legends of Tomorrow isn’t included this year) promising to be fun, DC have released the first look at the Monitor or Mar-Novu as he’s apparently known:
How cool is that?
The book he’s holding though – that’s a new element added to the character and I can’t help wonder if it’s just a prop for the photo or has some significance – like Destiny’s book of fate, or whatever it was called.
Although, judging by the size of it, maybe it’s the Absolute Edition of Crisis on Infinite Earths . . . ?
While I’ve never really got into Arrow, I’m a fan of The Flash and Supergirl and have enjoyed the previous crossovers between the various series. I’m looking forward to the Elseworlds crossover in the next couple of months (though it might be early next year before we get it over here in the UK) though I am wondering why Legends of Tomorrow has been left out this time around.
Still, I will be tuning in.
