It’s almost that time of the TV season again, where two of the biggest and hottest comic book shows on TV right now will once again meet in an epic crossover episode”Arrow” and “The Flash”.
The most recent episodes of both shows have been slowly introducing and setting up the stage for most of the characters that will come to the new spinoff series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”Professor Martin Stein getting his new half of the Firestorm persona, Kendra Saunders introduced in “The Flash”, Sara Lance brought back to life, and Ray Palmer/The Atom back in action on “Arrow”. Now, Marc Guggenheim, executive producer from both shows, has released via Twitter the first set image of the crossover episode that is set to open the story to “Legends”, featuring new heroesHawkgirl and Hawkman.
In his previous interview with Deadline, Guggenheim talked about this season’s crossover episode, and how it differs from their first crossover event in the previous season. Unlike the previous season’s crossover event which featured two different storylines, this season’s episodes will be a real two-part story.
“There’s a lot of things that are really cool about this year’s crossover, one of which is the fact that there really is a true two-part story unlike last year where it was two interconnected episodes where each had their own beginning, middle, and end,” Guggenheim explained in the interview. “This is a big two-part event, one single bad guy, and it will very clearly launch ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’. But at the same time what I think is a lot of fun about it is that it doesn’t feel like a backdoor pilot for ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’. It feels like an episode of ‘Flash’ and then an episode of ‘Arrow’.”
“It truly is a 2-hour ‘Flash’/’Arrow’ event that just so happens to introduce us to some new characters who will be a big part of ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’,” he said.
The crossover episode between ‘The Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ will take place on December 1 and 2, respectively. The episodes will serve as a penultimate episode for both series before their respective mid-season finales.
‘The Flash’ airs Tuesdays at 8 PM ET/PT, ‘Arrow’ airs every Wednesday of the same time slot, both on The CW.
