\"Crisis on Infinite Earths\" was critically praised for its scope, ambition, and the many cameos, though the fate of Oliver Queen had a mixed reception. The crossover proved popular, as each episode gave season-high ratings to its corresponding series. A two-episode aftershow, Crisis Aftermath hosted by Kevin Smith, aired after parts one and three to explore the crossover's events. \"Crisis on Infinite Earths\" was intended to be followed by a crossover between Batwoman and Superman & Lois in 2021, but this did not occur because of the COVID-19 pandemic, being replaced informally by David Ramsey appearing as John Diggle on multiple Arrowverse series. The next crossover, \"Armageddon\", occurs over the first five episodes of the eighth season of The Flash in November and December 2021.
In January 2019, The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing said that the remainder of the fifth season would contain elements of the upcoming crossover. The CW president Mark Pedowitz called the crossover \"the biggest, the most complicated one\" to date, and was hopeful that Legends of Tomorrow (which did not participate in \"Elseworlds\" because of production complications) would be part of \"Crisis\". In May 2019, Pedowitz announced at The CW's upfront presentation that the crossover would include The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman in a five-episode event spanning late 2019 and early 2020. The crossover occurred in the ninth episodes of Supergirl's fifth season, Batwoman's first season, and The Flash's sixth season, in the eighth episode of Arrow's eighth season, and as a special episode of Legends of Tomorrow's fifth season which had not yet begun airing; this episode is not considered the series' season premiere. Guggenheim said that when they first presented the crossover to the studio and network, the creators stressed that they did not want the event to be \"Crisis on CW Earths\" but \"to touch as many strands of the DC tapestry as possible.\" About the crossover's comparison to the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Avengers: Endgame (2019), Guggenheim said \"for Barry and Oliver, there is an emotional denouement that is reminiscent of Endgame ... Endgame is an exclamation point. 'Crisis' is a semicolon\".
The crossover story was expanded in a two-issue comics series Crisis on Infinite Earths Giant, written by Marv Wolfman (who wrote the original 1985 series) and Guggenheim, and illustrated by Tom Derenick, Trevor Scott, John Kalisz, Andy Owens, Hi-Fi, Tom Grummett, Danny Miki, and Chris Sotomayor. The series reprinted material from the original Crisis on Infinite Earths comic, and its second issue included material from DC Universe: Legacies #6 (2010). About the series, Guggenheim said that its concept \"came pretty early on in the process\" when it was realized that the story's scope would exceed the five episodes. By creating the comics, it allowed the producers to utilize \"all of the characters that we don't have in the crossover proper for logistical reasons, or financial reasons, or creative reasons ... [The comic series] allows us to tell a major piece of the story that we're designing, with characters and concepts that we couldn't achieve in live -action\". Its four main characters are Felicity Smoak, the Ray, Nyssa al Ghul, and Wally West, in addition to appearances by Atom, Sara Lance, Batwoman, the Flash, the Monitor, Lex Luthor, and others. Serious consideration was given to the Huntress, but Guggenheim opted for Nyssa al Ghul because \"we had done a comic-book tie-in that bridged seasons two and three of Arrow and [Huntress] had featured prominently in that, so Nyssa had not yet had her chance to be immortalized that way\". Wolfman added that the comics were \"created to tie in perfectly with The CW shows\" so it felt like a main part of the story and not ancillary: \"This is integral to the entire storyline.\" The first comic debuted at Walmart on December 15, 2019, with the second releasing on January 19, 2020; both were released in comic stores the following month. The series is set during the first part of the crossover's Batwoman episode. Its stories and behind-the-scenes extra content was published in a deluxe hardcover edition on July 7, 2020.
Lucifer Morningstar's appearance was considered to be five years before the events of Lucifer, according to actor Tom Ellis: \"This is him in his proper playboy, don't-give-a-damn-about-anything stage in his life. He is very irreverent with our characters when they turn up in the scene and obviously, with Constantine, there is some history there.\" His scene, written by Certo (a Lucifer fan), was sent to that series' creative team for their feedback. Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson suggested Lucifer's flirting joke, and Ellis contributed his pronunciation of Constantine as \"Constantyne\". Henderson called Lucifer's appearance \"the coolest thing\" since he had wanted to participate in the crossover when he learned that it was adapting Crisis on Infinite Earths. Black Lightning's inclusion was decided \"very late in the game\", according to Guggenheim. He worked closely with Black Lightning showrunner Salim Akil to incorporate the character not as a cameo but \"in a way that feels significant\". Once the logistics and creative elements were solved, Black Lightning \"elevated the crossover to another level\". Actor Cress Williams said that the character enters \"in a very surprising way. He's not prepared for it. So, he doesn't know these people.\" Because of this, there is \"some conflict early on when he's trying to figure out, who are you people and why am I here\".
Schedeen rated the final two installments a 9 out of 10: \"The final two chapters of \"Crisis on Infinite Earths\" cement this crossover as the most entertaining and most ambitious Arrowverse adventure yet.\" Concerned that the crossover would buckle under its own weight in part three, Schedeen was glad in the Arrow episode that its \"consolidating [of] the cast down to a handful of heroes and a few cosmic entities really help[ed] refocus and remind viewers of what's at stake.\" Although he enjoyed seeing the human side of the Monitor, he could not say the same for the Anti-Monitor, who was just \"a faceless threat and an obligatory, all-powerful punching bag in these final two episodes\". Schedeen called Oliver's sacrifice \"a fitting end\" to the character, justifying the decision to resurrect him after his sacrifice in the first part. It did \"even more to bring the character full circle and complete his arc. Ollie's story has always been about the sacrifices he makes for the greater good and what better way to end that story than by having the Arrowverse's first hero give his life so that its best heroes can continue the fight\" About the Legends episode, he wrote that the \"finale manages to deftly balance the whimsical, self-aware tone of Legends with the gravitas needed as our heroes confront the Anti-Monitor one last time.\" Schedeen wrote that part five \"manages to juggle its many moving parts elegantly\", and he enjoyed the ending scence and the creation of the Arrowverse's version of the Justice League.
