The CW's highly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover, titled "Crisis on Infinite Earths," concluded on Tuesday. The crossover event, comprised of five total episodes, centered on superheroes from across the multiverse uniting to prevent complete destruction as anti-matter swept across different Earths. In addition to actors from "Arrow," "Supergirl," "The Flash," "Batwoman," "Legends of Tomorrow," and "Black Lightning" appearing throughout the crossover, some other stars made cameos. Here are all the celebrities who had cameos.Robert Wuhl reprised his role as reporter Alexander Knox from the 1989 Tim Burton "Batman" movie.
He was seen in Gotham City on Earth-89 (a nod to the year the movie about the Caped Crusader was released starring Michael Keaton), sitting on a bench and reading the Gotham City Gazette. The newspaper had a front-page headline that read, "Batman Captures Joker," and the bat signal was projected in the sky as the city's call for help from the superhero. A scene of the red skies on Earth-9 showed "Titans" star Alan Ritchson as Hawk/Hank Hall.
Season one of "Titans," which is a grittier spin on DC's Teen Titans, was released on DC's streaming app (DC Universe ) in 2018. Another scene showed Curran Walters' "Titans" character, Jason Todd.
He was seen in San Francisco with Hawk, and their Earth was destroyed. Considering that a third season of "Titans" has already been confirmed for 2020, it'll be interesting to see how "Crisis" impacts the show. Fans got a glimpse of Russel Tovey as The Ray on Earth-X.
He was previously seen on the Arrowverse crossover titled "Crisis on Earth-X." On Earth-66, Dick Grayson/Robin (played by Burt Ward), was seen walking Ace the Bat-Hound.
He shouted, "Holy crimson skies of death!" as he saw the anti-matter take over. Ward portrayed the character on the 1966 "Batman" TV show. "Star Trek: The Next Generation" actor Wil Wheaton had a cameo as a National City civilian from Earth-38.
He voiced Aqualad on the animated show "Teen Titans Go!" and Blue Beetle/Ted Kord on the animated series "Batman: The Brave and The Bold." In addition, Wheaton voiced Robin for the video game "DC Universe Online." "The Tick" star Griffin Newman played the host of a quiz night that Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) attended.
Shortly after the game ended, Lyla/Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson) arrived to recruit the "Legends of Tomorrow" characters to assist with the crisis. Wentworth Miller, known for playing the Arrowverse's Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, didn't appear on part two, but his voice was heard.
Lyla/Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson) boarded a Waverider on Earth-74 and was greeted by Miller's voice as an "interactive artificial consciousness," similar to Gideon from "Legends of Tomorrow." On Earth-99's Gotham City, Kevin Conroy portrayed a version of Bruce Wayne/Batman from the future.
On Earth-99, Bruce revealed to Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) that he had a "reign of terror," characterized by killing many people — including Superman and the Joker. Kate unintentionally killed Bruce while trying to defend Supergirl from him and his Kryptonite. Conroy previously voiced Bruce on "Batman: The Animated Series," "Batman Beyond," and "Batman: The Killing Joke." Trailers for "Crisis" showed him coming face-to-face with Rose's Kate Kane. Tom Welling reprised his role as "Smallville's" Clark Kent.
He was seen chopping wood at the Kent farmhouse when Iris West-Allen (Candace Patton), Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch), and Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) visited him and warned that Cryer's Lex Luthor was on his way to try and kill him. Part two of the crossover also revealed that Welling's character gave up his superpowers for his family, so Lex's Kryptonite had no affect on him. "Smallville's" Erica Durance had a quick cameo as Lois Lane.
Her appearance revealed that she and Clark now have daughters. "Legends of Tomorrow" star Brandon Routh, known for portraying Ray Palmer/The Atom, played Clark Kent/Superman from Earth-96.
On that Earth, Clark was the editor-in-chief at Metropolis' Daily Planet. He revealed that on Earth-96, Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, and many others were killed after a villain gassed the publication's building. Clark went on to don his superhero suit and faced off against Hoechlin's Superman after Lex arrived and manipulated his mind using the Book of Destiny that he stole. Routh previously portrayed Superman in 2006's "Superman Returns." Johnathon Schaech reprised his role as "Legend of Tomorrow's" Jonah Hex on Earth-18 during part two.
He tried to stop Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara) from accessing the Lazarus Pit located in Earth-18's North Dakota, which they wanted to use to bring Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) back to life after he died on part one of the crossover event. Part three of the crossover opened with Ashley Scott reprising her role as Helena Kyle/the Huntress.
She portrayed the character on the short-lived 2002 series "Birds of Prey." Tom Ellis had a cameo as Lucifer Morningstar, aka the devil, on Earth-666.
Mia, John Diggle (David Ramsey), and Constantine (Matt Ryan), tracked him down in Los Angeles so he could help them retrieve Oliver's soul. Lucifer gave them a card that enabled them to go to Purgatory. Ellis made his debut as the character on Fox's "Lucifer" in 2016. The series was canceled after three seasons, but Netflix picked it up and brought back the show for two more seasons. The actor previously denied involvement in the crossover, telling "Entertainment Tonight": "Hard pass." John Wesley Shipp returned as Earth-90's version of The Flash and sacrificed himself.
The Monitor previously told Barry Allen that The Flash would disappear in the crisis. In a plot twist, Earth-90's Scarlet Speedster took some of Barry's speed to help Team Flash temporarily stop the anti-matter wave from spreading and died doing so. His death scene also included a brief flashback of Shipp on the '90s "Flash" series with onscreen love interest Amanda Pays, who played Tina McGee A new character named Ryan Choi, played by "Supernatural's" Osric Chau, was introduced on Earth-1's Ivy Town.
Iris West-Allen (Candace Patton), Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), and Ralph Dibney (Hartley Sawyer) convinced the physics professor to join them. Ryan is the paragon of humanity, one of seven people who can save the multiverse. On part three of the crossover, Oliver Queen encountered Stephen Lobo's Jim Corrigan in Purgatory, with a twist.
In the comics, the character acted as a host body for the Spectre, who played a key role in defeating the Anti-Monitor. On "Crisis," Jim told Oliver that the Green Arrow was the only person who could "light the spark." "It is your destiny to save everyone," he told the vigilante. "Otherwise all universes, all the people that you love, will perish. Oliver then accepted his new role as the Spectre and Lobo briefly appeared on part four of the crossover. Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver, previously teased Spectre with a sneaky tweet posted in October. Ezra Miller's version of the Flash came face-to-face with Grant Gustin's speedster during part four of the crossover.
When Gustin's Flash traveled through the speed force, he encountered Miller, and both characters were stunned to learn about each other's existence. Miller's version of the comic-book character was introduced in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and he starred in 2017's "Justice League." The actor is also getting a standalone Flash movie, in theaters in summer 2022. You can read more about Miller's cameo here.
