With this year’s CW ‘Elseworlds’ crossover event less than two weeks away, the network is finally giving us glimpses of some of the other characters set to be major players in the event through yet another new promo they have released.
The latest promo (which you can check out below), is only thirty seconds or so in length, and while it does contain some footage of scenes that we have already seen (like that awkward kiss between Oliver and Iris after Barry and Oliver have switched identities), it also gives us our first look at The Monitor on screen (no pun intended), who is being played by LaMonica Garrett of ‘Designated Survivor’ fame. You can check out the clearest look at the Monitor (and a line of dialogue from him) around the :20 mark, where he is speaking to Arkham Asylum doctor John Deegan (Jeremy Davies of ‘Lost’), which is also where we get our best look at Deegan in the crossover so far. It appears that the Monitor gave Deegan the power to rewrite reality setting up the conflict for the episodes. Also, there’s a shot of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) in the black costume we have heard so much about, along with the ominous line “Show them what a real god can do,” hinting that Deegan and the Monitor turned Superman dark solely to stop the heroes from ruining their plans.
The crossover event is set to hit the CW on Sunday, December 9th, which will be the first airing of the three night event, with both ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ airing on special nights to ensure the crossover episodes all occur on consecutive days. Make sure to check out the latest promo below, and share your thoughts on the how the Monitor looks, what you think Deegan’s ultimate plan is, and any other theories you may have for the crossover in the comments section!
