The episode synopsis for the first three parts of the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover have been revealed including a return to “Smallville”…
A crisis is coming and the first real details about the massive crossover event have been revealed.
Starting in December, the five-part “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover will begin with three episodes of “Supergirl”, “Batwoman” and “The Flash” kicking off the most ambitious event in the history of the CW Arrowverse.
The final two parts will then debut in January with “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow” but unlike past crossover events, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is being treated as one giant movie chopped up into five separate parts rather than character-centric episodes that have been the focus in the past.
The CW has now released episode details for the first three parts of the crossover, which includes a return to “Smallville” where Tom Welling and Erica Durance will reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane while Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) is also returning during the huge event series as well.
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” will kick off on Sunday night, December 8 at 8 p.m. ET with “Supergirl” and then carry over to Monday night with “Batwoman” and then Tuesday night with “The Flash” before taking a month long hiatus before the final two parts debut in January. Here are the episode breakdowns for the first three parts of “Crisis on Infinite Earths”
