The cast of “Elseworlds” continues to grow!

EW has confirmed that John Wesley Shipp — a.k.a. the original Flash from the ’90s show and Henry Allen on The CW’s The Flash — will appear in this year’s Arrowverse crossover. While it’s unclear what he’ll be doing in “Elseworlds,” Arrow star Stephen Amell shared an image that showed Shipp wearing a Flash costume a replica of his suit from CBS’ The Flash, which makes us wonder what in the multiverse is going on?

“No big deal. Just working with @JohnWesleyShipp for the first time,” tweeted Amell. “Nice of him to dress up for the occasion.”

Check out the photo, which shows Shipp with Amell also in his Flash suit, Grant Gustin as the Green Arrow, and Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.

Former Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim, who is spearheading this year’s crossover, shared another image of Shipp in costume and revealed that the suit was made by The Flash‘s (2014) costumer designer Kate Main.

After starring as Barry Allen on The Flash, which ran for one season on CBS, he joined The CW speedster show as Henry Allen, Barry’s (Gustin) falsely imprisoned father. Henry was killed off in season 2; however, Shipp stuck around because it was revealed that Henry’s Earth-3 doppelganger was none of other than Jay Garrick, the first Flash in the comics.

This year’s three-night event — which only includes ArrowThe Flash, and Supergirl — is looking like it’ll be an exciting one as it’ll also introduce Ruby Rose as Batwoman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, and Cassandra Jean Amell as Nora FriesLost‘s Jeremy Davies will play an insane Arkham Asylum doctor, and Designated Survivor‘s LaMonica Garrett will appear as the multiverse observer, the Monitor.

“Elseworlds” begins Sunday, Dec. 9, with The Flash at 8 p.m.; continues Monday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. with Arrow; and concludes the following night at 8 p.m. with Supergirl.

After the success of Arrow, Barry Allen (a.k.a. The Flash) gets his own CW treatment in this comic-themed spin-off.
