TALES OF ARCADIA: Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim Geeks Out Over CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS

While catching up with Tales of Arcadia: Wizards executive producer Marc Guggenheim, we discuss some of his favorite aspects from the recently released TV epic Crisis on Infinite Earths. Check it out!

Fans may have heard of a little known series called Arrow, or its spin-offs The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman. Dubbed the Arrowverse, the franchise has grown to monumental proportions and has done things that both television and the superhero TV community would never dream of. 

Spearheading all of this has been a man named Marc Guggenheim. Kicking off the universe with Arrow, Guggenheim has helped to usher in a new era of superhero TV that has brought various other projects over the years into the spotlight. Recently, his most significant accomplishment has been bringing the iconic DC Comics story, Crisis on Infinite Earths, to life on the small screen. 

We were able to catch up with Marc while talking about his new Netflix show, Tales of Arcadia: Wizards, and asked him what he thought were some of his favorite moments during the Crisis TV event. Make sure to see what he had to say!

Literary Joe: Crisis was a crazy and wild ride. Everyone came back, including Tom Welling (Smallville) and John Wesley Shipp (The Flash). I'm curious to know what moment in Crisis on Infinite Earths made you geek out the most?

Marc Guggenheim: Gosh, that is a tough, tough, tough question. There was no single moment, quite frankly.

Because if you asked me this question tomorrow, you'd probably get a different answer. I can't personally choose between Old Man Bruce Wayne, Smallville Clark, or Superman Returns Superman.


I guess this is a total cop-out answer. Still, it has the virtue of at least being honest and for me.

Just seeing this seminal comic book being developed for live-action, that in and of itself is a geek-out moment for me of monumental proportions. To the point where even if we didn't have all of these cameos and easter eggs and other characters, I still would have been geeking out.


Because when I was sixteen and Crisis on Infinite Earths came out, it never occurred to me that it could be put to film. And the idea that it was, albeit on a broadcast schedule and a broadcast budget, was still the biggest moment for me.
