2017’s crossover between The CW’s Arrowverse shows, ‘Invasion!’ has the heroes from two worlds and throughout the time stream fighting off a race of sharp-toothed, telepathic aliens. It was a fun thrill ride incorporating more costume-clad heroes than had ever been seen on TV before. Things became even more epic last year, with the ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ event, which had the champions of ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’ combining their forces to emancipate a parallel Earth where the Nazis won World War II and, in the process, recast some familiar do-gooders as Nazi stormtroopers. But the producers that they couldn’t go any bigger, so perhaps they’re going better.
This year, the ‘Legends of Tomorrow‘ have been benched, while the stars of ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ will head to Earth-1’s Gotham City for the first time and meet up with a fledgling hero trying to make a difference. Even though Stephen Amell said that, “I can’t say sh**!” he did say:
“But I do know that when it got pitched to me, when [executive producer] Greg [Berlanti] pitched it to me, I was like, ‘Oh man, that’s awesome! Really?!’… Because we went so big with the crossover last year, you can’t go bigger, so you have to go more about the characters and the story.”
While producers are obviously keeping mum about significant plot details, expect a new spin on the ‘World’s Finest’ as Supergirl and Ruby Rose‘s new hero Batwoman get a bit of face-time. As Melissa Benoist exclaimed:
“Throughout the seasons, Kara’s had a few funny quips about Batman and her opinions on him – she thinks vigilantes are nuts. So I’m excited to see her meet Batwoman, and see how they interact.”
It’s funny, because granted, Oliver and Kara haven’t always had the best working relationship, but he’s the closest thing the Arrowverse has to Batman. Take away the bow schtick, and is there really that much of a difference?
On The CW, ‘The Flash’ season five kicks off on Tuesday, October 9, followed by ‘Supergirl’ season four on Sunday, October 14, ‘Arrow’ season seven on Monday, October 15 and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ season 4 on Monday , October 22.
