Arrowverse: John Wesley Shipp To Appear In Crisis On Infinite Earths Crossover


TV Insider is exclusively reporting that John Wesley Shipp will be appearing in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis On Infinite Earths.

 

Crisis On Infinite Earths is the followup event to last years crossover Elseworlds, where Arkham Asylum doctor John Deegan rewriting reality, which results in Oliver and Barry swapping lives. In this new reality, the two heroes are the only ones that know that they are in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers.

 

John Wesley Shipp, who portrayed Barry Allen in the 1990-1991 live-action series of The Flash, has also starred in this CW incarnation of The Flash, as Barry’s father Henry Allen as well as another version of The Flash on Earth-2, Jay Garrick. It’s unclear as to which version of the speedster Shipp will play, though it’s a safe bet that since he appeared as his 90’s version of Barry Allen in last years crossover Elseworlds, that it’s a safe bet that he’ll appear in Crisis as Jay Garrick.

 

Aswell as the main cast members across Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon Routh will be appearing as the Kingdom Come version of Superman, Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Burt Ward (the original live-action Robin) will have an undisclosed role, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, characters from Black LightningKevin Conroy as an old Bruce Wayne, Johnathon Schaech will appear as Jonah Hex, Tom Kavanagh will appear as Pariah (a character from the Crisis On Infinite Earths comic) and LaMonica Garrett pulling double duty as The Monitor (introduced in last years Elseworlds) and The Anti-Monitor (big bad for Crisis On Infinite Earths).

 

Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover will begin with Supergirl (8th December 2019), then Batwoman (9th December 2019) and The Flash (10th December), then return in the new year to conclude on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (14th January 2020).
