‘Arrow,’ ‘Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ Will Probably Fight in the Four-Way Crossover
The CW has managed to keep most footage of its four-way crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow under wraps, but as we’ve long known, you don’t get this many superheroes together without a little friction. So it is, that new reports tease how the Dominators will potentially pit the CW’s DC heroes against one another.
We certainly saw two years ago that the thrill of seeing Arrow and Flash together evoked The Avengers, while last year’s two-episode Legends of Tomorrow setup contained multiple nods to Age of Ultron, so will this year’s “Invasion!” go full Civil War? Or perhaps more aptly,
Batman Arrow v. Super man girl?
Entertainment Weekly wouldn’t confirm as much in an initial report on the crossover, but take a look at this telling quote:
[…] we can tell you the threat that set the sprawling plot in motion: The Dominators, mind-controlling extraterrestrials threatened by Earth’s surging population of metahumans. If you’re wondering if “mind-control” = “we’re totally going to see these superheroes fight each other,” then you’re absolutely [REDACTED].
Of course, you wouldn’t know it by the cover photo of those crazy kids together. Sorry, Legends of Tomorrow:
We already know that Oliver and Kara won’t be getting along too well at first, though Stephen Amell had to say during the cover shoot:
I disregarded all character direction when it came to Oliver interacting with Kara. At all times. He’s supposed to be mad at her, and I would just stare at her longingly … I told them that. They may have to cut around it, I don’t know … I immediately hit her with the cold shoulder. Or as Oliver would call it, “saying hello,” basically.
The event itself will start in the final minutes of our November 28 Supergirl installment (presumably with Barry and/or Cisco arriving to seek out Kara’s help), and continue through all three hours that week. In the process, which heroes might come to blows?
