During the conversation, he offered an update on the CW’s follow-up to Crisis on Infinite Earths.
“In terms of what our next crossover event will be next year, I think truly because of COVID right now and the pandemic, our aspirations aren’t quite as large,” Berlanti said. “We’d just like to start shooting again.”
As of right now, there are no details regarding the next crossover aside an event with a crossover focusing on Batwoman and Superman & Lois.
However this was the first time Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries realized they were seriously considering moving forward with that idea.
“I don’t know [what to expect from the crossover] because I had heard rumors of it, but hearing it from The CW yesterday was the first time I was like, ‘Oh, okay, I guess this is happening.'”
The trio also discussed the possibility of more crossovers between the TV and movie since the appearance of Ezra Miller as the Flash in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
“Up to this point, the company was organized where TV was TV and film was film, and often times DC and Jim were the arbiters of, ‘They want to use this character. Are you using this character?’ It became this really weird situation where the fans love the characters, they just want to see the characters,” said Hamada.
“This sort of opens the door for us to do more crossovers, to really lean into this idea of [the multiverse] and acknowledge the fact there can be a Flash on TV and one in the movies, and you don’t have to pick one or the other, and they both exist in this multiverse. I do think moving forward there are more opportunities to do things like this.”
Berlanti stated he is “happy to invite any feature [film] characters.”
