We’ve seen one behind-the-scenes shots of the comic-accurate character of The Monitor which is being introduced in the “Elsewords” crossover event this year but that doesn’t do the final look justice. The character is being described as “an extraterrestrial being of infinite power,” and the first official look portrays that much better than the leaked image did.
You can take a look at the character right here!
Grant Gustin who plays The Flash was quick to open up about the actor who would be central to the event this year:
“LaMonica was ridiculous, like seeing him in his suit, he’s just a monster. 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.”
If you’re unfamiliar with The Monitor, his real name is Mar Novu, and he is as old as the universe. Possessing almost limitless power, the comics have him recruiting heroes to fight the Anti-Monitor, and it isn’t clear if they’ll be following that route as plot details have been murky so far.
The three-night event will spawn ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ and ‘Supergirl’ and is slated to introduce us to a slew of new changes. There is a lot of things going down in this crossover event with Batwoman and Lois Lane being introduced, Superman in his black outfit, the 90s version of The Flash making an appearance, and the actors who play Green Arrow and Flash switching their roles. It seems hard to imagine how we’ll be getting all of this and a nearly all-powerful character thrown into the mix to boot as well.
