LaMonica Garrett has been cast as the Monitor for the DC-CW television shows, according to Deadline. The Hollywood trade doesn't specify where or when the Monitor will debut, but reporting the cast as part of its coverage of the recently-named "Elseworlds" DC-CW crossover coming this December.
In DC Comics, the Monitor is best-known as part of the iconic Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event series. The DC-CW has teased a "Crisis" before in its shows, and this announcement comes the same day as DC Comics launched a new Crisis - Heroes in Crisis.
Of course the obvious question is if the Monitor has been cast, will an Anti-Monitor be far behind him?
Garrett is best-known for his role as Mike Ritter in the TV series Designated Survivor, and has previously appeared in The Last Ship, Sons of Anarchy, and Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon.
DC-CW's fall season kicks off October 9 with The Flash.
The "Elseworlds" crossover is scheduled to begin December 9 with The Flash, followed by Arrow on December 10 then Supergirl on December 11.
