Black Lightning heading to The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrowverse crossover this December

August 5th, 2019 by Marc Comments

More great news from The CW tonight, gang…

At the TCA summer press tour, the CW announced that although the actually Black Lightning series will not be airing as part of this year’s Crisis on Infinite Earths event (see schedule below), characters from it will be making their official Arrowverse debut during the crossover.

Although, word is it’s only going to be a cameo similar to Batwoman’s last year in the Elseworlds event.

This is great news as we’ve suspected it would happen for a long time now and… here we are!

This is going to be one hell of an event.

This was confirmed by actor Cress Williams who plays Jefferson Pierce AKA Black Lightning:

I cannot wait for this… all the CW’s shows plus cameos from across the DC TV and movie universe dating back to the 1960s? This is going to be TV’s answer to Endgame – I’d even go so far as to say it’s bigger (come at me, bro).

But, hey, that’s just me…

What say you all?

This coming season, The CW will present its biggest DC crossover ever with Crisis on Infinite Earths airing across five different episodes of the network’s hit superhero series and spanning two quarters (December 2019 and January 2020). The Crisis on Infinite Earths episodic air schedule is as follows:

Supergirl – Sunday, December 8, 2019 (8pm ET/PT)
Batwoman – Monday, December 9, 2019 (8pm ET/PT)
The Flash – Tuesday, December 10, 2019 (8pm ET/PT)
Arrow – Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (8pm ET/PT)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (9pm ET/PT)

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
