There's a lot of intrigue surrounding Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One, especially amid rumours that what we once believed to be a two-part adventure could now play out across three movies!
Warner Bros. Animation and DC haven't announced the voice cast, though a recent Amazon listing pointed to a January release. Alas, the DC Animated Universe's future is in doubt as DC Studios is planning a line-wide reboot across film, television, animation, and video games, meaning this may be it for direct-to-home video titles (which would be a real shame).
We're sure official news is coming, but in the meantime, Part One's cover has found its way online.
Unsurprisingly, given his penchant for travelling through time, The Flash is put front and centre. The Scarlet Speedster is surrounded by a multitude of Tomorrowverse heroes, including Batman, Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, John Stewart Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman. Some surprises come our way in the form of Ultraman, Superwoman, and a character who looks an awful lot like Robot Man.
There are no hints about Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One's big bad, while it doesn't currently appear as if there are plans for characters from past DCAU projects to appear (unless they're being saved as a surprise for an appearance in Part Two).
Take a look at the cover art in the Tweet/X below.
Crisis on Infinite Earths was a comic book crossover storyline published by DC Comics in the mid-1989s. The series, written by Marv Wolfman and pencilled by George Pérez, ran for 12 issues and stemmed from the former's desire to abandon the DC Multiverse.
Believing the concept had become overly complicated, the writer set out to create a single, unified DC Universe.
At the start of Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Anti-Monitor (the Monitor's evil counterpart) is unleashed on the DC Multiverse and begins to destroy the various Earths that it comprises. The Monitor tries to recruit heroes from around the Multiverse but is murdered, while Brainiac collaborates with the villains to conquer the remaining Earths.
However, both the heroes and villains are eventually united by the Spectre, and the series concludes with Kal-L, Superboy-Prime and Alexander Luthor Jr. defeating the Anti-Monitor with the creation of a single Earth in place of the Multiverse then following. Crisis on Infinite Earths is noted for its high death count; hundreds of characters died, including DC icons Kara Zor-El/Supergirl and Barry Allen/The Flash.
As a result, the DCU was, for a long time, broken down into the "pre" and "post" Crisis eras.
