** Confirmed, he shouts "HOLY CRIMSON SKIES OF DEATH!" when his native Earth-66 becomes a victim of the Crisis. Though it's said he resides in Gotham City, so it's possible he is the 60s Dick Grayson.


While they could certainly trot out the effects for an annual crossover, having to pay for all the CGI a Green Lantern show would require likely isn't in the budget of a live-action show. As such most of his (or her, if it's Jessica) adventures will be done like Vixen's were--animated, but with most of the cast based on their voice actors so that they can transfer to Live Action during big events.

* Sinestro Corp War- If Diggle becomes a Green Lantern then this would be the perfect event to follow the Crisis, especially given the role the Anti-Monitor plays. Could include the other Corps of the Emotional Spectrum.
* Throne of Atlantis- If Aquaman isn't introduced by the Crisis he could appear after and things could eventually be set up for the next event to be this. The heroes have face armies before but Atlantean technology and mysticism put together will be too much for them all of them will have to team up to stand a chance. Plus it would be a good way to include Black Manta in a big live action event.

* Blackest Night: Plenty of major Arrowverse characters have died before (Ronny, Dr. Stein, Tommy, Emiko, Eobard (multiple times), Damien Darhk, Vandal Savage, Laurel, Deadshot, the list goes on). Furthermore, the creators have confirmed that there will be more deaths in ''Crisis'' as well, not the least of which is Oliver's. Plus Nekron could consider the deaths of entire universes under his domain, which means alternate versions of still-living heroes could also appear. And if they play their cards right this could introduce the Green Lantern mythos rather than require it's setup previously, as the Legends or Supergirl strive to find where the rings came from and if there are other colours.

Added DiffLines:

*On the other hand, he could end up reprising his Dick Grayson from Series/Batman1966. Since ''Smallville'' and ''Birds Of Prey'' are being integrated into the verse retroactively, why not the Adam West series? Bruce and many familiar faces like the Rogues Gallery have passed away, but the war against crime is still ongoing. Grayson may not be able to go into field anymore, but nothing's stopping him from mentoring new heroes.


Because they haven't announced who he's playing, that means he's likely going to portray a different character, and Warner Bros doesn't seem to like getting old costumes out of the archives (if Guggenheim's claims are true). So why not have him play another incarnation of Batman? Since Warner Bros let ''Series/Titans2018'' use Batman, it could be that they're finally ending the Bat-embargo (plus, the Matt Reeves film won't even be in production, let alone theaters, by the time the crossover occurs). And in that comic's canon, Batman was so old he needed machines to help him walk, so it would justify Ward (in his mid-70s) portraying the character.

[[WMG: ''Crisis on Infinite Earths'' Debuts]]
The event ''will'' shake up all of the Arrowverse shows and it may well do that by introducing new characters that haven't yet made their debut.
* Green Lantern- There isn't any representation from the more cosmic side of [=DC=] lore so far and a multiverse threatening event may well get the Corp involved. Hal Jordan could show up as follow up to the hints about his existence and Diggle may just get the ring.
* Wonder Woman- There have been enough teases that she exists and she may show up with the fate of all reality on the line. She likely hasn't been seen yet because like her comic counterpart she works closer with the government than most heroes and they may have decided to keep her existence covert.
* Aquaman- Could be from Earth-1 but just for a twist he could actually be from Earth-38, what with Season 5 there introducing characters connected to Atlantis. He could show up before the event or during and the next half of Season 5 could have him in an important role.
* Red Tornado- Could be built on Earth-1, rebuilt on Earth-38 given the stated focus of Season 5 on technology where he was recreated to attack Kara but gets reprogrammed and becomes an ally, or he's from a completely different Earth.
* Zatanna- Gets called in by Constantine because she deals in spellcraft beyond his paygrade to hopefully turn the tide. He'll mention that he hasn't called on her before because of past business that didn't end well.
* Metamorpho- Will be introduced prior to the event on Black Lightning's Earth and will have joined him as an ally by this point.
* Doctor Light- The Kimiyo Hoshi version who was introduced in the original version of the event from the comics. She'll gain her powers during the event and be vital to defeating the Anti-Monitor and will join the second half of Season 6 of The Flash.
* Hawkman- The Katar Hol version who will hail from Earth-38.
* Vixen- Gets brought in by Team Arrow to help because of her mystic powers. If Aquaman and Zatanna show up there will be a group shot of the entire Detroit Team in live action.
* Doctor Fate- If anything could bring someone this powerful in it would be the prospective end of all reality.
* Captain Atom- Will be Cameron Scott who was mentioned back during Plastique's episode on The Flash. He's hidden his powers because of Eiling searching for him but will decide that things are dire enough to show himself and the second half of Season 6 will deal with the fallout of that.
* Blue Devil- Just for a ''real'' left turn twist it will be the version of the character from ''Series/SwampThing2019''.
* Geo-Force- Will appear on Black Lightning as a hero who joins forces with Black Lightning and just gets drawn in to things.
* Batman Beyond- Kevin Conroy as a live action Bruce Wayne? Tell me that isn't a recipe to introduce Terry McGinnis as a younger inheritor to the cowl.
* The Joker- Who will be played by Mark Hamill because the chance to see him together with Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne in live action is too good to pass up.
* Cheetah- Either released by Monitor as one of his tests or released by the Anti-Monitor against the heroes where Wonder Woman will none the less be brought in because of her presence.
* Sinestro- Will have been recruited by the Anti-Monitor to act in space and his presence will bring in Hal Jordan.

[[WMG: Events that the Crisis could set up]]
* Sinestro Corp War- If Diggle becomes a Green Lantern then this would be the perfect event to follow the Crisis, especially given the role the Anti-Monitor plays. Could include the other Corps of the Emotional Spectrum.
* Throne of Atlantis- If Aquaman isn't introduced by the Crisis he could appear after and things could eventually be set up for the next event to be this. The heroes have face armies before but Atlantean technology and mysticism put together will be too much for them all of them will have to team up to stand a chance.

Like how ''Batwoman'' seems to be set to take the role of ''Arrow'' in the lineup, said series, whether it be a uniting of various established characters or an adaptation of a new team, will take the place of ''Legends'' when it eventually concludes.
