Production on The CW’s next crossover event may begin much earlier than expected. According to insider Lance Ausfresser in The DC Universe Crossover Facebook group, The Monitor actor LaMonica Garrett has revealed that he’s set to begin filming the highly-anticipated Crisis on Infinite Earths event this upcoming Monday.
If the date seems earlier than usual for the annual crossover, it appears that production on Crisis will run longer than its predecessors. Earlier this week, Arrowverse producer Marc Guggenheim seemingly confirmed on Twitter that work on the event had already begun. He even teased a special announcement coming to San Diego Comic-Con next month.
“Loving these so much. Everyone is hard at work already — the earliest start we’ve ever gotten on the crossovers — to make this as big and epic and FUN as we can conceivably manage. Don’t be surprised if we announce something pretty cool at SDCC…,” Guggenheim teased.
Given the size of this event, it’s possible that rather than filming the entirety of Crisis all at one time, the network will shoot snippets as production on each series begins and keep it going until closer to the midseason breaks when the crossover is likely to air. Although, without official word from The CW, we can’t confirm if Ausfresser’s information is accurate so be on the lookout for an official announcement sooner rather than later if the event is indeed beginning production this week.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will be a five-part event that takes place over two quarters. The event will include Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Appearing in their first crossover as an official series will be Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, with the first season set to premiere this fall.
