There are a lot of crazy things already promised to be seen from this year’s The CW DC superhero series crossover, but one of the things that many have been waiting for is seeing heroes like Flash and Green Arrow meeting Supergirl’s cousin Superman. Knowing what some fans want seems to be something Stephen Amell is good at after seven years playing Oliver Queen/Green Arrow.
Taking to Twitter, Amell shared another teaser photo from the crossover (he’s shared many over the weeks) this one showing Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent/Superman standing with Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane before the Kent Farm house alongside Amell’s Oliver, Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/Flash, Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers/Supergirl and Carlos Valdes’ Cisco Ramon.
If that farmhouse looks familiar, you’ve likely watched Smallville as it’s the very same house that was used as the Kent’s for the ten seasons of that prequel Superman series that aired on The WB/The CW.
Elseworlds reportedly finds Supergirl, Flash, Green Arrow and company descending upon Gotham City where they meet Batwoman (Ruby Rose) and take on the Arkham Asylum physician Dr. John Deegan (Jeremy Davies). Somewhere along the way the world changes or alternate universes come into play based upon the teasers as well as teaser images featuring Barry and Oliver switching roles along with John Wesley Shipp donning the costume from his old 90’s Flash series.
Along with Hoechlin’s Superman return and Tulloch’s Lois Lane debut, Cassandra Jean Amell debuts as Nora Fries (wife of Mister Freeze) and Ruby Rose makes her debut as Kate Kane/Batwoman. LaMonica Garrett also will star as the multiversal villain known as the Monitor.
There is a flipping of the schedule for the event as it begins with The Flash on Sunday, December 09 before moving onto Arrow on Monday, December 10 then wrap up on Tuesday, December 11 with Supergirl.
