Stephen Amell: CW superhero crossover teased with photo
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… all of the DC heroes from the CW line-up together.
Sunday, Stephen Amell gave fans a first glimpse of the four-way DC crossover — that’s Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl — coming to the CW later this year. The photo, featuring the boots of DC TV’s heavy-hitters was presumably part of a special photoshoot promoting the series’ fall premieres.
In the behind the scenes pic, Amell’s Green Arrow hangs out on set with Grant Gustin (The Flash), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), Caity Lotz (White Canary, Legends of Tomorrow), and Brandon Routh, (Atom, Legends of Tomorrow). Amell captioned the photo, below, simply with “Coming soon.”
The crossover event, slated for November, will find all of the CW’s DC heroes joining forces to take down “one unifying threat,” per DC TV mega-producer Greg Berlanti. While these shows are no strangers to crossovers — Arrow and The Flash cross-pollinate often and spent last fall setting up their joint spin-off Legends of Tomorrow — but this is certainly the most ambitious. Last spring, Gustin guest starred on Supergirl, which moved from CBS to the CW to set the stage for this titanic event.
Before teaming up all of the CW’s heroes later in the fall, Amell is confirmed to appear in the first episode of Legends of Tomorrow’s second season. And thanks to Supergirl moving its production to Vancouver, where the CW’s other three superhero shows shoot, Amell bumped into the Man of Steel himself, Tyler Hoechlin, who will guest star as Superman in Supergirl’s sophomore season.
All four shows return to the CW this fall. The Flash premieres Tuesday, Oct. 4; Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 5, Supergirl makes its CW debut on Monday, Oct. 10., and Legends of Tomorrow returns Thursday, Oct. 13.
