DC's The Monitor first look reveals an 'intimidating' LaMonica Garrett making a fierce appearance
LaMonica Garrett's multiversal observer Mar-Novu, who will be soon introduced in this year's 'Elseworlds' crossover as The Monitor, is yet another addition to the stellar cast
DC Comics fans will be thrilled to know that one of the main characters from 'Crisis of Infinite Earths' has come to the 'Arrowverse'.
EW revealed the first look of actor LaMonica Garrett's multiversal observer Mar-Novu. He will be soon introduced in this year's 'Elseworlds' crossover and boy, he looks fierce.
The character has been described as "an extraterrestrial being of infinite power", and as told to EW by 'The Flash' star Grant Gustin, LaMonica has a spectacular character.
Gustin said, "LaMonica was ridiculous, like seeing him in his suit, he’s just a monster." He added, "He’s like an absolute unit. He doesn’t have to do a lot with his performance. He’s so intimidating with just these subtleties, so that’s dope."
'The Monitor' is created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez for the aforementioned show. The Monitor is bestowed with the responsibility of watching over the multiverse, which, back then, was under threat from his evil counterpart, Anit-Monitor. Soon after that, DC crossovers introduces an entire Monitor organization.
Like many new characters being introduced in the crossover, even The Monitor's role is unclear.
Along with The Monitor, we will see other characters from the DC comics making their Arrowverse debut in 'Elseworlds'. The three-night event will see Supergirl, The Flash, and Green Arrow crossing paths with a wide array of DC Comics characters, including Clark Kent/Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch). In addition to Superman and Lois, the event will include the live-action debut of Kate Kane/Batwoman (Ruby Rose), as well as appearances from Dr. John Deegan (Jeremy Davies), Nora Fries (Cassandra Jean Amell), and John Wesley Shipp's version of 'The Flash'.
The 'Arrowverse' crossover begins on The CW on December 9 with 'The Flash', followed by 'Arrow' on December 10 and finally ending on December 11 with 'Supergirl'.
