This December, Crisis on Infinite Earths will bring the Arrowverse together with several classic DC superhero shows for the television crossover of a lifetime. Although the Black Lightning TV series is sitting out of the crossover, Cress Williams will portray the title hero in the event. Until now, Black Lightning has been taking place on its own Earth. But in Williams’ video from the set of Crisis, he may have hinted how Jefferson Pierce will join the action.
Williams shared a video on his Instagram account that features Black Lightning at the helm of the Waverider. As viewers of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow already know, the Waverider is a ship that can transverse time and space. Williams also looks like he’s having the time of his life while playing with the ship’s controls. Behind him, it appears that Grant Gustin (the Flash), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), and Brandon Routh (Superman) are also on set.
Supergirl will kick off Crisis on Infinite Earths on Sunday, December 8. The second part will unfold in Batwoman on Monday, December 9. Meanwhile, The Flash will feature the third part on Tuesday, December 10. Then on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will wrap up the crossover.
