‘Arrow’ Teams ‘Flash’ With ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ in First Crossover Photo
Both Arrow and The Flash have suffered a bit under the weight of Legends of Tomorrow, but if The CW pulls off its mega teamup crossover, it might be worth it. See Team Arrow join Team Flash and Team … Legends (?) in our first cryptic photo of the upcoming crossover!
Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim shared our first look at the teams together, including Oliver, Diggle, Speedy, Black Canary and Barry, as well as Ciara Renee’s Kendra Saunders / Hawkgirl and Falk Hentschel’s Carter Hall / Hawkman. Sure, it looks a lot like the team standing around in an abandoned warehouse, but what’s up with Barry’s robot hands?
Stephen Amell previously told reporters of the crossover:
Last year was designed so that if you were a fan of one show or a fan of the other show, you could enjoy 108 of ‘Flash’ and 308 of ‘Arrow’ independent of one another. It’s not the case this year. If you put them back to back on one night, they would run like one two-hour episode of television.
In fact, most of the ‘Flash’ episode takes place in Star City, and most of the ‘Arrow’ episode takes place in Central City. We have a common villain, which was not the case last year, and just in general, we’ve done an excellent job of weaving not just two shows, but three shows together. […]
I think these crossover episodes standing together will probably be, in my mind, the pinnacle achievement for both shows. We shot a scene that had, like, nine superheroes in it. Nine people with either powers or super suits. It was an amazing thing to look at, to look out over the scene and see the world that has been built over the course of three-plus years.
Both series will continue building toward the big event, but will it do Legends of Tomorrow justice? What else can we expect from the first major teamup?
