Geekville Radio #252: Crisis On Infinite Earths Fallout, Marvel Phase 4 Rumors

Crisis On Infinite Earths, the five-part Arrowverse crossover that aired over two months on The CW, has come to an end. Seth and Crazy Train are back to talk about the crossover and its effects on the rest of the Arrowverse.

SPOILER WARNING! This show contains heavy spoilers for Crisis On Infinite Earths. If you have not seen the event, stop now to avoid the story from getting spoiled.

Crisis On Infinite Earths

Like the previous episodes, several cameos, easter eggs, and other references were made throughout the finale. Seth and Train tally up their predictions made before the crossover began. Does their batting average hold up?

Perhaps the biggest change to the continuity is that all the major shows now take place on one Earth. Up until this point, several Earths housed the heroes on their respective shows. With this change, it will make future crossovers easier since the characters no longer have to worry about crossing parallels Earths.

As expected, The Arrowverse suffered its biggest loss in the final act: The death of Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow. Technically, he died twice, in the first and fourth episodes. The final episode of Arrow not only featured Ollie’s funeral, but it also teased John Diggle finally taking up the mantle of Green Lantern. Not only that, Ollie and Felicity were finally reunited in what appeared to be a pocket universe.

Marvel Phase Four


Patrick Stewart met with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Fans have speculated this could bring Stewart’s Professor X into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). However, Stewart himself downplays that possibility.

Stewart, who turns 80 this year, is currently reprising the role of Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Picard. He portrayed Charles Xavier in six films for 20th Century Fox. James McAvoy portrayed a younger version of Xavier in other X-Men movies.

Feige has been linked to an upcoming Star Wars film since last year. Stewart did not mention Star Wars when talking about his meetings with Feige, but that does not mean it wasn’t discussed. Time will likely tell whether these discussions involved crossing brands or not.


A few weeks ago, news broke that Christian Bale was in negotiations to join the MCU. Reports have linked him to Thor: Love And Thunder, while others seem to point to him being the latest movie incarnation of Norman Osborn aka Green Goblin.


Other unspecified projects have fueled speculation that Marvel may be working on a Thunderbolts and/or Dark Avengers movie. If Bale is indeed set to play Osborn, then he may play a key part in a Dark Avengers movie. In the comics, Norman was Dark Patriot, the leader of the Dark Avengers.
