The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover episodes is probably the best superhero television ever made & each one is included on this release besides the Legends of Tomorrow one. It features all the other current major characters from all the other CW DC Comics shows like Flash, Green Arrow, Black Lightning, Supergirl, Batwoman, Superman, Lois Lane, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, & Frost all together in one epic event. This 5 episode showcase alone is worth the purchase of this Season 5 release & checking out the latest adventures from The Legends of Tomorrow. Any Brandon Routh fans will geek out for certain scenes in it. The group of powerful misfits are now public heroes & they are taking advantage of their new found fame from it. They explore everything from mobster Bugsy Siegel to William Shakespeare. This is the most unique superhero series from The CW right now & it has a little bit of everything in it. My favorite thing about it is the fact that John Constantine basically has his own show again after the original one was cancelled way too soon. I am looking forward to seeing what happens for 6 because this show keeps getting better & better, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Let’s discuss the special features from Warner Bros for this Blu Ray release! It has around 32 minutes of “Deleted Scenes”. I am very surprised a few of these didn’t make the final cut of the show. This is a great bonus feature with some fun footage. It has the almost 4 minute “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Post Production Theater”. This is a really cool inside look into Legends when it comes to the production aspect. It has a little over 8 minutes of hilarious “Gag Reel” footage with the cast messing up & goofing around on the set. It definitely fits because Legends of Tomorrow has more comedy than your typical comic book series. “More Fun Moments Collection” is almost 12 minutes. It’s a nice extension of some small but entertaining spots from the show.
It also includes the Crisis on Infinite Earths bonus disc which features all 5 episodes for the massive superhero television event that were seen on Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, & this series. It also has it’s own set of extras for the DC Comics crossover. “Crisis Past and Present: Kevin Conroy Bat Legend” is a little over 3 minutes. It focuses on the legendary animated voice for Batman became involved with this. “Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Architects Return” is almost 12 minutes. They go over the original source & comic books that inspired this major television event. They explain how they made it work with the current events of the DC CW universe, “Crisis Past and Present – Superman vs. Superman” is a little over 4 minutes. This one is awesome, it takes a look at an actor reprising an iconic role for this DC Comics crossover. “Characters in Crisis: Pariah” is a little over 4 minutes. They highlight the story from the comic & how they transferred it onto to television. “Crisis Management” is a little over 13 minutes.
