Today we are getting our first look at LaMonica Garrett’s Mar-Novu aka The Monitor! The Flash’s Grant Gustin said it best, “He’s so intimidating”!
Per Entertainment Weekly:
The Designated Survivor alum’s character has been described as “an extraterrestrial being of infinite power.”
In the comics, the Monitor has played a role in several of DC’s multiverse-remaking, continuity-changing events. Created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez for Crisis on Infinite Earths, he’s charged with watching over the multiverse, which was then under threat from his dark counterpart, the Anti-Monitor. Later DC crossovers introduced an entire organization of Monitors. As of right now, it’s still unclear how Garrett’s Monitor figures into the crossover.
Of course, the Monitor isn’t the only DC Comics character making their Arrowverse debut in “Elseworlds.” The three-night event — which includes Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, but not Legends of Tomorrow — will also introduce Ruby Rose as Batwoman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, and Cassandra Jean Amell as Nora Fries. Jeremy Davies will star as Arkham Asylum’s Dr. John Deegan, while Tyler Hoechlin will reprise the role of Superman and John Wesley Shipp will suit up as a speedster. too.
“Elseworlds” begins Sunday, Dec. 9, with The Flash at 8 p.m.; continues Monday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. with Arrow; and concludes the following night at 8 p.m. with Supergirl.
