Elseworlds crossover: Arrow and The Flash swap suits in new poster

Posted Filed under

The CW has unleashed a rather odd teaser for the upcoming crossover between Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. In a new poster that Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell have both shared on social media, their superhero characters have swapped suits.

Oliver Queen/Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell posted the image on Instagram, with the caption, “My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive.”

On Twitter, Amell added, “This is real, btw. I’m in the Flash suit while I type this.”

Grant Gustin, who normally plays Barry Allen/The Flash, also shared the image on the ‘gram, stressing similarly that “This is not fan art.”

This three-part crossover, which will air before the end of the year, is starting to sound rather barmy. As well as role-swapping for Gustin and Amell, we also know that we’re getting a black-suited Superman and the big debut for Ruby Rose’s Batwoman.

How does it all fit together? How many different ‘Elseworlds’ dimensions will we visit? Will Grant Gustin try to do the deep Arrow voice?! We’ll just have to wait and watch to find out all the answers.
