The Crisis on Infinite Earths is over, and it did what a DC Crisis always does: end a lot of worlds. But while it assembled the Arrowverse, it didn’t completely flatten the Multiverse. A final montage showed us the worlds that the Spectre created with his dying breaths. Here’s what we ended up with:

Crisis on Infinite Earths - Multiverse

Earth-Prime: The home of all the Arrowverse shows. That includes The Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The concluding Arrow, the upcoming Superman & Lois, and possible Green Arrow and the Canaries shows live here, too.

Earth-2: The home of the upcoming CW/DC Universe series Stargirl starring Brec Basinger.

Earth-9: The home of DC Universe’s Titans show.

Earth-12: This clip showed the Oa from the 2011 Green Lantern movie, which was written by Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti. Ryan Reynolds did not appear in this clip.

Earth-19: The home of DC Universe’s abruptly-canceled Swamp Thing series. That one hurts.

Earth-21: The home of DC Universe/HBO Max’s Doom Patrol. This could possibly explain the discrepancies between their Titans appearance and the actual series.

Earth-96: This earth is home to Brandon Routh’s Superman from Superman Returns. In this clip, he’s once again wearing a yellow-backed “S.”

A smaller, more intimate Multiverse

The end result is that every on-going or recent DC live-action property has its own Earth; the two films that feature Arrowverse actors/writers have their own Earths, too. There’s the notable exception of Ezra Miller’s still-not-canceled Flash film, too.

Sadly, Oliver was not able to revive the Earths of Smallville, Batman 1966, Flash 1990, and Birds of Prey 2003. Tom Welling’s Clark Kent is gone, and so are John Wesley Shipp’s Barry Allen, and Jay Garrick.

This Multiverse leaves the tantalizing but likely impossible idea of seeing shows like Doom Patrol cross over with the Arrowverse. It ain’t happening, but this guy can dream about it.
