‘Flash’ Reveals Hawkman and Vandal Savage in First ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends’ Crossover Footage
As with so much of The Flash and Arrow’s current seasons, last night’s “Gorilla Warfare” didn’t waste much time setting up 2016 spinoff Legends of Tomorrow, including our first look at Ciara Renee’s Hawkgirl in flight. That said, promos from the hour revealed so much more, including a first taste of the epic three-way Arrow crossover starting with December Flash outing “Legends of Today.”
In addition to a brief “Heroes Join Forces” spot teasing Oliver and Barry’s exasperation with an increasingly weird DC universe (see below), tonight’s Flash also offered our first look at the upcoming two-part crossover. Along with the first footage of Falk Hentschel’s Hawkman, we also see Casper Crump’s immortal Vandal Savage in action, as well as a number of other familiar faces, and some epic visuals from citywide shockwaves to an Egypt-looking setting.
So reads The Flash’s official synopsis for December 1 outing “Legends of Today,” followed on December 2 by Arrow installment “Legends of Yesterday”:
The Flash’s “Legends of Today”: In its second major crossover event with “Arrow,” Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco, they turn to Barry for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.
Arrow’s “Legends of Yesterday”: Oliver and Barry Allen take Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall to a remote location to keep them hidden from Vandal Savage while they figure out how to defeat him. Malcolm arranges a meeting between Vandal, Green Arrow and The Flash that doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Felicity, Thea, Diggle and Laurel work with Team Flash to come up with a weapon powerful enough to destroy Vandal Savage.
Both Arrow and Flash will take a slight break (after the former’s “Brotherhood” tonight), starting their latest crossover on December 1, but what should we expect from the big Legends of Tomorrow setup? Did Hawkgirl’s “Gorilla Warfare” appearance effectively set the stage?
