The CW has announced that their upcoming December 2018 superhero crossover event will be titled “Elseworlds”.
In DC Comics publishing history, Elseworlds have been stories that take place outside the DC Universe canon. Some of the most famous Superman Elseworlds stories include “Superman: Red Son,” “Superman: Speeding Bullets,” and “Kingdom Come”.
Along with a poster image for the “Elseworlds” crossover event, The CW also announced that LaMonica Garrett (Designated Survivor) has been cast as the DC Comics character The Monitor, a.k.a. Mar Novu, “an extraterrestrial being of infinite power known as the Monitor.” The CW also announced that George Pérez (who along with Marv Wolfman created the Monitor in the classic “Crisis on Infinite Earths”) will illustrate a sketch of the Monitor that plays a prominent role in the crossover’s story.
The special 3-night “Elseworlds” crossover event will begin in “The Flash” on Sunday, December 9 at 8.00pm ET, and then continue in “Arrow” on Monday, December 10 at 8.00pm ET, and will conclude with “Supergirl” on Tuesday, December 11 at 8.00pm ET.
