‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’: Epic Cameo Connects DC Film and TV Universes

SPOILER WARNING: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the finale of The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”

Ezra Miller’s iteration of the Flash just crashed the DC TV universe.

Miller made a cameo on The CW’s big crossover event, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” on Tuesday night, officially connecting the TV and film universes of DC. He reprised the superhero that he appeared as “Justice League” in, right alongside Grant Gustin’s own Barry Allen.

The CW’s sixth annual “Crisis on Infinite Earths” event connects the shows of the network’s Arrowverse — “Supergirl,” “Batwoman,” “The Flash,” “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow” — to deal with an intergalactic emergency. It started with three episodes in December, and wrapped up on Tuesday night.

In the scene, Gustin’s Allen zips into STAR Labs in his Flash gear, and he’s shocked to find Miller’s Allen standing there too.

“What the hell is this?!” Miller’s Allen asks incredulously.

“What are you doing here?” Gustin’s Allen asks, also incredulously.

“Well, I’ll tell you that when you tell me where…here…is,” Miller’s Allen responds, before asking if Gustin’s Allen is doing cosplay and wants a selfie.

Gustin’s Allen then tells Miller’s Allen, “I’m also the Flash,” which blows the mind of Miller’s Allen, since he’s not called the Flash in “Justice League.”

Then after both Barry Allens compliment each other’s costumes — “smooth and breathable” — they realize, to their shock, that they share the same name. At which point, Gustin’s Allen realizes that Miller’s Allen isn’t aware of the “Crisis” storyline. But before he can clue his counterpart in on what’s happening, Miller’s Allen fades away before saying, “I told Victor this was possible” — a reference, most likely, to Victor Stone, aka Cyborg, as played by Ray Fisher in “Justice League.”

Without the cameo, it would’ve still been awhile since fans got to see Miller step into the red suit again. Last month, Warner Bros. announced that its feature film “The Flash,” starring Miller, would be speeding into theaters on July 1, 2022 — Variety previously reported that its start date had been pushed back, originally slated to begin production in March 2019.
