This year’s Arrowverse, titled “Elseworlds,” will be a little smaller, having three shows instead of four. But, it will be a big deal. It will introduce Batwoman, Nora Fries, and Lois Lane to the Arrowverse, while Superman is set to return. Now, we have some more hints on what to expect, courtesy of Arrow star Stephen Amell.
During a Facebook Q&A session, Amell says that this crossover is “f***ing bananas,” and he has some very, very high praise on what to expect. “I think that this will be the best crossover event that we do. And not just the best but the best by a really, really wide margin. And I think that last year was fantastic.” Amell goes on to tease that we’ll get some more news about “Elseworlds” soon….as in, within the next week soon.
Separately, in an interview with GreenArrowTV, Amell reaffirms that this will be a more character-driven crossover, which he was hoping for. “[For the crossovers] we would get bigger, and bigger, and bigger, but at a certain point, we have to pare it down a little bit and do more of a character-driven story, so we’re really focusing this year on a core five [characters]: Oliver, and Barry, and Supergirl, and Superman, and Batwoman. That’s more exciting for me, because it’s more of a character piece.”
Amell is specifically excited to see Green Arrow and Superman meet for the first time. “I’m sure that there will still be oodles of action, but the possibility of Oliver and Clark Kent interacting is … I mean, it’s exciting! What else can I say? I was a fan before I was a part of this whole world, and the chance for those two characters to meet is really great.” For GreenArrowTV’s full interview with Amell, who talks in depth about this season of Arrow, click the link above.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. “Elseworlds” begins on Sunday, December 9th at 8 PM EST on The CW.
