I'm trying to understand the merging of the Earths. I still don't fully understand. I just need more explaining.
So, only a few Earths merged, not all of them?
Or, the other Earths showed towards the end, are those new Earths?
Because Earth 2 and Earth 19 are still there. Are they the same Earth 2 and 19, or are they different?
Again, they did that for the comics too. Yes, they didn't all die and get recreated, but the results were still the same. Only instead of properties DC bought getting merged in, it was properties they already owned, but the adaptations of which had TV shows which were either on separate networks or started separate from the Arrowverse.
I'm confused as to what you're saying here.
From an in-universe perspective, the original Multiverse no longer exists, and the new Multiverse only consists - to our current knowledge - of 6 realities: Earth Prime, Earth-2, Earth-9, Earth-12, Earth-19, and Earth-96.
Earth Prime is now the home to characters who, in the original Multiverse, inhabited Earth-1, Earth-38, and Earth-73/Earth-BL, but, with the exception of the Paragons, these characters are not the same as their counterparts from the original Multiverse who existed on said Earths, even if they have been given knowledge of their lives on said Earths.
I'm saying there are more similarities there with Crisis than Flashpoint from the comics. There is no shortening to 52, and the entire cast hasn't reduced their histories down to ten years.
I don't agree, but to each their own, I guess.
I'm just saying read up on the original before making the judgement.
Best way to put it, only the Arrowverse earths merged into Earth Prime. Everything else outside of Arrowverse got their own earth's, like Batman 89 and Titans etc. What makes no sense is how they separated Titans and Doom Patrol when they are on the same earth. Hince Gar and Raven meeting the Doom Patrol.
The Doom Patrol that appears in the Titans episode are different than the Doom Patrol in their own show. The Doom Patrol show was never in the same universe as Titans (though apparently a showrunner said so at some point?).
Indeed. It's quite inconsistent so the Arrowverse just cleared it up.
When releasing Doom Patrol, they immediately said that those characters were from another timeline and that none of them had known Gar (and therefore Rachel). Crisis on Infinite Earths confirmed Titans and Doom Patrol being in completely different Earths, that has more sense.
The Doom Patrol series was originally intended to be a spinoff of Titans, but when DP showrunner Jeremy Carver started actually developing the series independently and writing the Pilot, he took things in a direction that ignored and was incompatible with the team's appearance in the already-completed "Doom Patrol" episode of Titans Season 1.
This fact was first brought to the public's attention a few days before the Doom Patrol series premiered on DC Universe by actress April Bowlby, who revealed that her character in the DP series did not know the character of Gar Logan, AKA Beast Boy, despite the aforementioned Titans "Doom Patrol" episode having featured Ms. Bowlby as Rita and Doom Patrol Series Regular voice actors Brendan Frasier and Matt Bomer as Robotman and Negative Man, respectively, and having shown Rita and Gar living under the same roof.
The fact that the Doom Patrol series and Titans were not connected was subsequently confirmed and reiterated by showrunner Jeremy Carver and Arrowverse/Titans/Doom Patrol producer Sarah Schecter in an interview that was released a day or two after the Doom Patrol series launched on DC Universe.
Despite these confirmations, both of which were publicly available, however, numerous people continued to refer to the series as being interconnected, leading to the confusion that the establishment of the new Arrowverse Multiverse ended up unequivocally clearing up.
What do you think?
