This year’s Arrowverse Crossover event is going to be as crazy as it could get because things are going to be really twisted. The idea of doppelgangers from different Earths in the multiverse will be fully explored as we are going to see identity shifts throughout the Arrowverse. The latest poster of the Elseworlds Crossover does give us the idea of what is going to happen.
CW announced the dates for this year’s big crossover event and it is great that the crossover will last for 3 whole nights this time around. They released the image for the crossover a while ago, and as you can see, this image contains the air dates of the three-night crossover event which will begin with The Flash on Sunday, December 9 at 8 pm ET, then Arrow will continue it on Monday, December 10 at 8 pm ET and Supergirl will give us the final on Tuesday, December 11 at 8 pm ET.
So, to do a headcount, this year’s crossover would possibly feature Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, Wild Dog, Mr. Terrific, Spartan, Black Canary, Killer Frost, Martian Manhunter, Superman, Felicity, Iris, Vibe, Guardian, Lois, Alex, and Batwoman. That’s a pretty packed cast already and I’m pretty sure I would have missed a couple of names on the roster. Still, it is safe to say that we would probably not miss the Legends with so many people already being featured in the Crossover.
Not just these characters, but we are actually going to see alternate versions of them. Barry will be the Green Arrow from a different Earth. Oliver Queen will be the Flash from another Earth. How this could play out for the other characters of the Arrowverse is still a mystery but it would be interesting to see what alter egos the other characters could get. Spartan could be the new Guardian, Iris the new Black Canary, and who knows what! Another thing we know for sure is that Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent is going to wear the iconic Black Superman costume.
While the Elseworlds poster only gave us a glimpse, we now have the full look at Grant Gustin’s Green Arrow and Stephen Amell’s The Flash. You may think that Grant Gustin may not look as good as the Green Arrow because of his slim physique which works as the Flash but might not as the hood. But as it turns out, the Hood really suits him. Here’s the set reveal. Have a look:
Also, Stephen Amell looks remarkable as the Flash. They should actually consider doing this for more episodes than just 3. It will be interesting to see how Stephen Amell plays a jolly hopefull guy, and how Grant Gustin portrays a grumpy and more serious character. Another look at Amell in full costume:
The plot of the Elseworlds crossover will have Green Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl going to Gotham City as they learn about the evil schemes of a sinister doctor at Arkham Asylum. That is what will bring in Ruby Rose’s Batwoman into the picture. We all are looking forward to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman as this debut is supposed to spawn her own individual show on the CW Network.
Amongst all the shows, it seems that this season is going to be the last for Arrow and we are really looking forward to what the writers have planned for us this time. Since this will probably be the final season, Stephen Amell has asked the writers of the show to write like there is no tomorrow. He said:
“We have a new showrunner this year, Beth Schwartz, who’s been with the show since season one. [The writers] have a very clear vision of what they want season seven to be, and what I asked them to do – and it’s not up to me – but what I asked of them is to not just assume that we have an eighth season. I wanted them to write like, ‘If you have a good idea, and you have something you’ve always wanted to do or see on the show, then just do it! Do it right now!’ I think that’s one of the things I’m getting out of what they’ve planned for season seven – we’re not writing like we’re guaranteed something beyond this, because we’re not; nobody is. I want them to really push forward and take the fact we have a certain license and a certain respect from the fans to take some chances.”
The Arrowverse Crossover begins on December 9.
