DCEU Cameo in Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 4:
The quality of stories in the Arrowverse may have deteriorated, but the shows still manage to surprise people in ways they won’t imagine. Even those who left the Arrowverse have returned to at least to watch the biggest Arrowverse crossover of all time. While we do have to give the creatives credit for what they’re trying to do, but the quality story & most importantly the fighting has gotten extremely bad on these shows. But what has actually made this crossover special is the way it has connected all the different Universes in the DC Multiverse. And now, even the DCEU has been connected to the Arrowverse in Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 4.
Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3 left us with the cliffhanger ending. All the infinite earth across the Multiverse had been consumed by the Anti-Matter wave and trillions of lives had been lost. 7 people were left alive. They are the 7 Paragons of the multiverse who would give the multiverse a fighting chance. And, Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 4 has revealed how these 7 Paragons took the fight to the Anti-Monitor.
From here on out, SPOILERS for Arrow Season 8 Episode 8 – Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 4 follow.
The first three episodes showed us some amazing cameos whilst connecting different Earths. Tom Ellis showed up as the King of Hell, Lucifer from his Universe. Smallville was connected as Tom Welling showed up as Clark Kent. Kevin Conroy finally got to play Bruce Wayne in live-action (his entry gave us chills). Adam West’s Batman Universe was connected. We saw a connection to DC Universe’s Titans. Even the Universe of Batman the Animated Series was connected. The Arroverse also linked the world of Brandon Routh’s Superman (Superman Returns).
Upon seeing all of these connections being made throughout the different TV and movie universes, people have been questioning how the DCEU will be connected to the Arrowverse. Gladly, this connection has been made in the best way possible as another version of The Flash comes face to face with Grant Gustin’s Flash. This is what we’ve always wanted to see. Take a look if you missed this in the episode:
Ezra Miller’s The Flash meets Grant Gustin’s and the sequence was actually amazing to witness! All the Earths were destroyed by the Anti-Matter wave and we were left wondering how a DCEU cameo will happen. Because the Flash (Miller) is connected to the speed force, he was actually able to exist outside of the physical world as well. And this cameo actually teases the fact that Ezra Miller’s Flash needs to learn a lot about the Speed Force, Time Travel & the Multiverse. These three elements could be used in the upcoming Flash movie for the Flashpoint event, and a connection between the DCEU and Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
So, we could conclude by saying that this was another genius cameo on the part of the Arrowverse. Kudos to The CW. Now it’d be interesting to see how the rest of the TV shows will continue with their seasons after Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 5. The 7 Paragons and Oliver Queen aka Spectre have defeated the Anti-Monitor and created a new Universe, which could align all the different Universes in the Multiverse. The worlds of Supergirl/Superman, Black Lightning, Legends, Arrow, The Flash & Batwoman could now be one. Let’s see what happens in Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 5.
