The CW has revealed a first look at Tom Cavanagh as Pariah in the upcoming, highly-anticipated crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. This follows the previously-released photos of Audrey Marie Anderson as Harbinger and Brandon Routh as Superman. You can view the Pariah, Harbinger and Superman photos in the gallery below.
Pariah is a scientist in comics published by DC Comics. He first appeared in Crisis on Infinite Earths #1 (April 1985), and was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez. The Flash executive producer Eric Wallace talked about the character at the San Diego Comic-Con.
“As part of Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, not only will Tom be playing the two characters we heard here, he will also be playing Pariah as part of the crossover,” Wallace said. “He works for the Anti-Monitor. In the original miniseries, it’s Pariah who is very much integral in releasing the Anti-Multiverse. For Tom to play such a pivotal character… it’s just going to tear your guts out and make you cry.”
In addition to Pariah, Cavanagh is expected to appear as Harrison Wells and Reverse-Flash in the crossover as well.
The CW will present Crisis on Infinite Earths across five different episodes of the network’s hit superhero series and spanning two quarters (December 2019 and January 2020). Supergirl will kick things off on Sunday, December 8, and will be followed by Batwoman on Monday, December 9, and The Flash on Tuesday, December 10. Then the Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow crossover episodes will air on Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
