“Crisis” Management: Yup, Grant Gustin’s The Flash Just Met [SPOILER] – Snyder Cut of “Crisis” to Follow?

With the new year upon us, The CW‘s “Arrowverse” is waking from its long winter’s nap to the start of some major changes. With only a handful of episodes remaining, Arrow is shuffling off the network’s programming coil – making The Flash the “elder states-show” of the “Arrowverse”. Ruby Rose-starrer Batwoman continues solidifying her role in the changing universe, as well as developing a “World’s Finest” relationship with Supergirl and expanding the Batman mythos in CW’s DCU. With “Crisis on Infinite Earths” unleashed, expect even more dramatic changes – including the addition of Black Lightning and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as well as new pilots Superman & Lois and Green Arrow and the Canaries.

But before a new “Arrowverse” can be born, we need to finish making a few “changes” to the multiverse we kinda-sorta still have – which is exactly what will happen when our heroes look to “Take Back the Worlds” as the mega crossover concludes with a double-header of Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Tuesday, January 14 – taking place right now.

One of the things we love about “Crisis”? The moments you don’t see coming – and we definitely didn’t see this one coming, so… MAJOR SPOILERS!

The CW also released a very Anti-Monitor-focused official poster for the two-part finale – though our biggest takeaway? Stephen Amell‘s Ollie as… Green Spectre? Following that, The CW is also giving us a look at some paired-up character profile posters for the battle still to come…

Meanwhile… back at the Vanishing Point… our heroes vow not to fail as the battle reaches its final – which is a good thing because otherwise? The CW’s going to have a lot of weekly programming slots to fill:
