The Arrowverse isn’t new to crossovers. Ever since Barry Allen’s backdoor pilot in Arrow and The Flash’s The Flash vs the Arrow in it’s season 1, people have had their eyes hooked for seeing more of the heroes from different shows sharing the same screen. With the network’s biggest experiment yet to air, The Arrow cast members talk of upcoming crossover and how it changes the equations of the Arrowverse.
Juliana Harkavy, who plays the new Black Canary in the show was tight lipped about revealing any pointers for the upcoming crossover. Though she has this to say:
“I’m so excited. It’s epic and the story is Odyssey-like and I’m excited for people to see that too.”
Emily Bett Rickards plays Felicity Smoaks, a core member of the show and a rumored major player in the Crossover event. Like Juliana, she has nothing much to offer to the fan hype in the form of words. She adds:
“I think what happened with Barry and Iris’ wedding is we had to get the four shows together,” Rickards said. “What’s the best way to do that? A celebration. What’s the best way to ruin a celebration? … I think that’s the best way to have this theatre of tragedy and for people to see it.”
Nicely put Emily. The crossover does have too many cards on the table. It’s entirely upto the showrunners and how they use it that will make a difference.
Our beloved Stephen Amell, who plays the titular Green Arrow in the show just showed us why he is so loved by scores of fans. He gives us a slim but definite idea of how incredible the Arowverse is about to get this time of the year. Stephen closes the hype:
“It really is, for the first time, it’s an event,” he said. “It’s not a crossover anymore. Call it the crossover if you want. But it’s kind of like calling the Super Bowl just a football game. Yeah, sure, they play football, but there’s so much other stuff that goes on with it. It’s an event.”
Is it an event?Is it a crossover? Damn we are eager to know what happens next!!
