Stephen Amell is a master at social media, and now that his hit CW series Arrow is in production, he's shared plenty from the set. Recently he caught up with the new Superman for a fun photo opp, making us wonder if the CW was already preparing to shoot the big crossover that was teased at the Upfronts and Comic-Con. Now, it looks as if the 4-way crossover between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow is coming together and coming together fast. You can check out the first image for the 4-way crossover, below.
Via social media, Stephen Amell shared an awesome and up-close look at the feet of some of the major characters that will be involved with the 4-way crossover. If you aren't super costume savvy, those feet belong to The Flash character Barry Allen, Legends of Tomorrow's Sara Lance, Legends of Tomorrow's Ray Palmer, Supergirl's titular heroine, and Arrow's Oliver Queen. They are a fairly leather-clad group overall. And while it would be cool to see exactly what those characters will be doing during the episode, this is a great way to kick off all of the teases related to what is coming.
So far, we don't know a ton about the big crossover event, and CW head Mark Pedowitz has even asked fans to "imagine" regarding what is to come. Things get pretty weird in my head, so I'll leave you to wonder where the whole thing could be going. Needless to say, the show is going to need a pretty interesting foe--or possibly interesting foes--in order to present a challenge that a gang of superheroes might need to take on.
While the 4-way crossover is obviously the big event that DC's CW shows have planned for the upcoming season, it's not the only event that fans should look forward to. Grant Gustin, who plays Barry Allen, recently spilled the beans that the network is planning way more episodes that feature crossovers between shows. While at Comic-Con in San Diego, he told us that he's currently signed up for 4 crossover episodes, and there's probably room for even more, considering that each show produces new episodes well into the spring and a lot of those episodes haven't been written, yet.
With four CW shows to keep up with (and a separate Gotham series), it might be a little hard to keep track of everything going on in DC's TV universe, but luckily, even if you don't plan on picking up Supergirl or dropped off with Arrow or whatever, you should still be able to enjoy the random characters showing up. As for watching a random episode of The Flash just because there is expected to be a crossover, I have no idea what advice to give you. That show's plot has a lot of twists and turns and can be complicated. Hopefully any crossovers will be less so.
The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl all premiere on the CW this October. For specific times and dates, as well as a look at what else is coming this fall, check out our TV premiere schedule.
