has spent the last year teasing its epic “Crisis on Infinite Earths” event, which begins on Sunday and brings together the entire “Arrowverse” in an unprecedented TV event whose plot spans both multiple timelines and an infinite number of realities.
The upcoming five-part event features not one, not two, but three different versions of Superman, two Lois Lanes, a futuristic Bruce Wayne, and a slew of characters that last appeared during the days of The WB
. It’s the culmination of the last eight years, which began with “Arrow
” in 2012 and now includes six different series.
Speaking with reporters Thursday at The CW
’s Burbank offices, Marc Guggenheim
, who is serving of showrunner for the “Crisis
” event, described the production of the crossover as being “three-dimensional chess with Rubik’s cubes.” Guggenheim, who has been with the “Arrowverse” since its inception, spearheaded the effort with the help of each show’s individual showrunners.
