The CW’s “Elseworlds” crossover looks to be a doozy, with the return and introduction of multiple Arrowverse characters. It will also revolve around reality being rewritten by Dr. John Deegan – which explains why Barry Allen and Oliver Queen have swapped places – so characters will be looking very different.
Now, we have confirmation that not one, not two, but three villains from Arrow will be featured.
[Warning: the following contains SPOILERS from recent episodes of Arrow.]
The CW has released a bunch of new images from “Elseworlds,” and one of them features three familiar characters: Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Joe Wilson (Liam Hall), and Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo). Here, all three villains are now members of the Central City Police Deparment (CCPD).
Merlyn was last seen in Arrow‘s season five finale, where he sacrificed himself to save Thea on Lian Yu. There has been talk of him returning again, and now it’s happening. Joe is the son of Slade Wilson, and he hasn’t been seen since season six’s two-part Deathstroke story. And finally, Diaz has been the main villain for last season and this season. This week, Diaz was defeated by Oliver and locked in his cell. But that surely won’t last for long.
