Elseworlds is the official title given to this years annual Arrowverse crossover. The CW made the announcement on Wednesday adding that “Chaos Is Coming.”
With this year’s crossover event trying to out do last years, it was also announced that LaMonica Garrett has been cast as the Monitor, a character who holds considerable importance among DC lore.
Garett will play Mar Novu aka The Monitor, who is described as an extraterrestrial being of infinite power known as the Monitor.
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez as part of DC Comics’ 50th Anniversary, the Monitor is most associated with Crisis, he actually made his first comic book appearance in 1982’s NEW TEEN TITANS #21, a full three years before CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #1. A cosmic being birthed on the lifeless world of Oa after the creation of the Multiverse, the Monitor holds great power and near-infinite knowledge of the Multiverse. His history is pretty complex, and was made further complicated by 2006’s INFINITE CRISIS and 2008’s FINAL CRISIS. However, his most noteworthy characteristic may be that he has a “twin.” The massively destructive Anti-Monitor was born at the same time as the Monitor, and it was the Anti-Monitor’s attack on the DC Multiverse and the Monitor’s attempts to stop him that form the heart of Wolfman and Pérez’s classic miniseries.
This years crossover will introduce Kate Kane aka Batwoman (Ruby Rose), along with Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch). Whilst Supergirl’s Tyler Hoechlin will reprise his role as Superman, marking his first appearance in the annual crossover.
The annual CW crossover event will last three-nights, it kicks off on Sunday 9th December with The Flash, Arrow on Monday 10th December and finishing up with Supergirl on Tuesday 11th December.
