Arrowverse creator Marc Guggenheim has expressed his desire to release Crisis on Infinite Earths as a movie, potentially with improved visual effects and deleted scenes. Find out more details right here...

Now that Superman & Lois takes place in its own reality, the Arrowverse will end with The Flash's final season next year. Kicking off with Arrow in 2012, this small screen DC Universe had a good run, ultimately expanding across multiple shows and annual crossovers (which got bigger and bigger). 

Shot prior to the pandemic, Crisis on Infinite Earths played out in December 2019 and January 2020, with the five-part event serving as a soft reboot for the Arrowverse. 

During the crossover, we got to see Kevin Conroy as a live-action Batman, the return of Tom Welling as Clark Kent, and much more. It was praised by fans and critics alike, and Arrowverse creator Marc Guggenheim has now shared his hopes to revisit the project... by turning it into a movie!

As you can see in the Tweet below, the veteran writer and producer said, "In my perfect world, for the 5th anniversary, I'd get some VFX money, time in an editing bay, and pull together the whole thing into a single 'movie.'"

We're sure many of you would be on board with that, especially as Crisis on Infinite Earths has never been released in one place. Instead, fans have been forced to buy the DVD or Blu-ray box sets for each individual series to relive an event that culminated with Ezra Miller showing up as his version of The Flash to meet Grant Gustin's Scarlet Speedster. 

We're not sure Guggenheim will ever get his wish, but it sure would be fun to see. If nothing else, it should be put on HBO Max in a way that allows fans to watch the current version in one sitting!

Would you like to see Crisis on Infinite Earths revisited in some way?

I thought COIE was horrendous. The Earth-X one was much better.

As a huge fan of the Arrowverse, I thought COIE was extremely well done. It gave Oliver a great ending, great character development for the characters and their relationships in Part 4 and worked as a love letter for the whole live action DC universe.

Yes the budget is low but they worked great with what they had. I enjoyed all the crossovers they have done. Crisis also works great if you watch it back to back with Elseworlds. It almost becomes a mini-series with it.

I rather see him do another Crisis as a way to wrap up the whole Arrowverse. Think S&L might go into it's final season as well, so all show will be ending.

Or just do the crazy thing and make a Crisis movie, that also has Cavill's Superman, Gadot's Wonder Woman, Mamao's Aquaman and Mariduena's Blue Beetle.

I'm down.

I haven't seen but I'd buy it just for the watch; heck if it's in theatres I'd play hooky from work just to watch it.

I just watched it last week. Low budget but pretty good for the resources they had at their disposal.

For what they had to work with and the CW losing money like it was their job, it was pretty damn solid.

The VFX were like 1997 CGI but it was a [frick]ing weekly TV show but I'll cut them some slack - editing out all the 'DC's Creek' drama and tweener bullshit with VFX to make it look/feel bigger than a TV show would actually be quite interesting.

Only crossover maybe worth theatrical release is earth X
Twenty23Three - 12/12/2022, 8:53 AM
Considering it was on a tv budget it was an incredibly impressive achievement. Pulling all the DC properties of the past and current together and saying they where definitely part of the same multiverse was beyond cool to see. Also. Brandon Routh Kingdom Come Superman, and Kevin Conroy as Batman in live action *chefs kiss*
Origame - 12/12/2022, 10:16 AM
@Twenty23Three - it gets even cooler once you start to think about routh as superman. His superman in the special is implied to be the same superman from superman returns (he even mentions his son being Jason which is only true in the returns continuity). And superman returns was made to be a sequel to the Donner superman films. Meaning we technically got the og superman in this.

@Origame - it’s just a shame, again probably due to time and money, that when they had Conroy Batman it wasn’t animated Batman. The first multiverse film or tv to have the balls to jump into an animated works Rodger rabbit style will have my respect

Just release it as is. Fathom events.

Actually, talk to Kevin Smith. He owns a cinema in Jersey now. He's showing ZSJL for the first time theatrically, maybe he'd be up for a COIE showing.
Origame - 12/12/2022, 10:12 AM
...what do you mean it culminated with an appearance from Ezra miller's flash? It was one quick scene at the beginning of the fourth episode, he left and didn't show up for the rest of the episode (as well as a whole other episode after that).

You're just trying to find a way to make the event seem worse than it was (not that it was all that great), but considering it's a basic cable production and this was well before all the charges against Ezra, him appearing on this show was actually a really cool addition. It helped give the sense the story connected to all things dc.

Imagine if earth's mightiest heroes had another season where they traveled the multiverse, and they encountered an mcu character.

I would lobe to see this for COIE and Crisis On Earth X.

The CW "Crisis on Low Budget Earths". Such a disappointment.
RitoRevolto - 12/12/2022, 2:40 PM
Ew, no.
SonOfOdor - 12/12/2022, 6:57 PM
I would definitely buy all of the crossover events on blu ray. As for the rest of the shows, I checked out around arrow season 5. Too much to keep up with and the quality continued to decline.

I say go for it. But if Brandon Routh's Superman is invited, DON'T REPLACE HIM WITH A LEX LUTHOR !

I still haven't fogive WB for having Jon Cryer's excellent Lex Luthor replacing Routh's Superman.
