'Crisis On Infinite Earths' Episode 2 promo teases Supermen of 2 Earths, Batman and the return of Lex Luthor
Spoilers ahead for 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Episode 1
After an explosive beginning, The CW's 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' crossover is gearing up for its second episode. Lives (and an Earth) were lost in Episode 1 but now the heroes are assembled on Earth-1, preparing for Round 2, and by the looks of things, they're going to be getting some backup.
The promo released for the episode by The CW shows the Arrowverse heroes mourning the death of Oliver Queen / Green Arrow (Stephen Amell). We're still not entirely convinced he's really gone and it looks like the other heroes are also having a hard time dealing with the loss of the Emerald Archer.
But while they mourn the passing of their friend, the heroes still have a war to win and the odds are seriously stacked against them. The sheer numbers of the Shadow Demons almost overwhelmed the heroes in the first episode and they will have learned their lesson from that defeat.
Now it looks like the heroes are going to be bolstering their ranks with recruits from the other surviving universes. That's right, Brandon Routh's 'Kingdom Come' Superman and Kevin Conroy's future Bruce Wayne are about to make their debuts in the Arrowverse and the promo has already teased some fun interactions between them and the other Arrowverse heroes.
Another person is also joining the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) but he's no hero: the newly-resurrected Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). The end of the multiverse should be a big enough threat to convince Lex not to double-cross everyone else but then again, you can never tell with Luthor. Whether he ends up being a hero or not, we'd really love it if he got a chance to put together a new Legion of Doom before the 'Crisis' comes to an end.
'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Episode 2 will arrive on The CW on December 9.
