Stephen Amell Calls Arrowverse Crossover “4-Hour Movie”

arrowverse-Flash Arrow Legends Supergirl CrossoverOnce The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow joined Arrow on The CW, the Arrowverse began doing their famous crossover episodes. This season promises to be one of the best, with the Crisis On Earth X plotline taking center stage. reports that Stephen Amell, speaking at Salt Lake Comic Con, talked a little bit about where the crossover episodes came from, and how they have evolved into the four-hour movie-like story we will see this season:

“When we first did the crossover, I guess back in our third season and The Flash’s first season, it was very much like ‘It’s an episode of The Flash where I show up, and then an episode of Arrow where he shows up.’ And even last year, it was like ‘You know, Flash showed up on Supergirl, and then it was an episode of The Flash, an episode of Arrow, and an episode of Legends.’ But this year is just a four-hour movie.”

An all-encompassing plot between all four shows sounds like the ultimate Arrowverse crossover event. Amell also noted that the airing order of the shows is vital to how the crossover’s plot will unfold:

“Technically it goes SupergirlArrowFlash, and Legends. But you’re not supposed to be watching the Supergirl hour going ‘Okay, this is the Supergirl hour.’ It’s just the first hour of the crossover.”

When asked if he could give any details about what fans can expect from the highly anticipated event, Amell was vague but promised an awesome Arrowverse event:

“I can’t spoil it, other than to say that when I read the crossover scripts this year, I felt compelled to email the sort of original [Arrow] team of Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim. And the email just simply said ‘Guys, thank you so much for this opportunity, because it’s going to be really, really good.'”

The 4-part Arrowverse crossover event is scheduled to being with Supergirl and Arrow on Monday, November 27 and concludes with The Flash and Legends on Tuesday, November 28.


10 Batman Villains Who Deserve A Chance On The Big Screen

Batman Villains DC ComicsBatman’s been on the big screen a handful of times, but he still has so many enemies who’ve never been in a movie. I love the Joker, but man-oh-man am I tired of seeing him. Batman’s got one of the most impressive, deep rogue galleries in all of comics, and I think it’s time more of them were given the love they deserve!

Some of these characters might have been in The Lego Batman Movie (if Kite-Man was, anyone could have been) but that doesn’t really count as an introduction. Look at how well-known someone like Slipknot is now thanks to Suicide Squad. Well, all these people on the list are way better than Slipknot, and should be seen taking on a member of the Bat-Family on the big screen soon.
