Here’s Why Grant Gustin Was Cut From Key Stephen Amell Scene In Arrowverse Crossover Event

Crisis On Infinite Earths writer Marc Guggenheimhas revealed why Grant Gustin’s The Flash was cut from a key scene featuring Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen in the latest Arrowverse crossover episode.

With the Arrowverse crossover underway, many surprises have come our way, including the death of Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen. Stephen Amell’s Oliver passed away due to inflicting terrible wounds from the Anti-Monitor’s shadow demons. Seeing as this is the Arrowverse, Stephen Amell’s character was resurrected thanks to the Lazarus Pit but was unable to be reconnected to his soul thanks to John Constantine’s magical prowess succumbing to the presence of antimatter that plagued the Arrowverse crossover.

This pivotal moment was teased in Arrowverse crossover’s promotional material, but it notably featured Grant Gustin’s The Flash  taking a good look at Stephen Amell. Whens fans tuned in for the latest Arrowverse episode, they were dismayed to find out that Grant Gustin had been cut for the final product. Fans took to Twitter to ask the writer of the Arrowverse crossover why Stephen Amell’s dear friend Grant Gustin wasn’t in the room. Marc Guggenheim revealed that Grant Gustin’s character was cut from the scene due to time restraints.

Without a doubt, this is a recurring sentiment seen on cable-TV shows. The CW, along with other network stations, has to adhere to a strict time-slot to accommodate advertisers. It could be interesting to see this scene from the Arrowverse featuring Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell on another platform when the time is right. For now, as devastating as it is that Grant Gustin wasn’t there to witness the key moment with Stephen Amell, it’s best to trust the Arrowverse creatives who have submerged themselves in the lore for countless years.

The latest Arrowverse crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of the Grant Gustin series accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement the Emerald Archer made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.

Crisis consists of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover aired three episodes in December and is set to conclude with two additional episodes in January. Stay tuned for the latest news on Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell, and the Arrowverse.
