With the CW's Arrowverse's "Elseworlds" only days away (The Flash 'Elseworlds, Part 1' airs Sunday, December 9; Arrow 'Elseworlds, Part 2,' airs Monday, December 10; and Supergirl 'Elseworlds, Part 3,' airs Tuesday, December 11), we have a message for the CW: we see what you're doing.
You think we haven't been down this road before? We're veterans of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story promo campaigns – we don't mess around. So if you want to keep feeding us clips – like this scene from Sunday's The Flash 'Elseworlds, Part 1' that finds Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in a pretty "flashy" situation with Iris (Candice Patton) – we'll keep going with 'em. Though between trailers, teasers, behind-the-scenes videos, and images, we're pretty cure the CW has already released all three hours piece by piece…
That's right! Crisis Management: Bleeding Cool's Arrowverse "Elseworlds" Live-Blog will cover all of the reality-hopping twists, turns, and total geek-out moments from the annual DCTV crossover. So until then, check out a righteous amount of previews for the upcoming event – and if you're looking for a sneak preview "backstory" on how things got to this point, check out the end-credit scene the CW aired this week here.
If you're reading this, then you probably don't need any more reasons to tune in – but just in case? This year's event brings us Rose as Kate Kane/Batwoman, John Wesley Shipp as The Flash (???); Tyler Hoechlin as Superman- Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane – and possibly some more cool surprises.
'Elseworlds, Part 1': EPIC ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER KICKS OFF TONIGHT — When Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) wake up one morning and realize they have swapped bodies with each other, the two set off to find out what disturbed the timeline to cause such a shift.
However, things quickly go from bad to worse when they present their case to Team Flash and the gang doesn't believe them. Barry and Oliver realize they need Supergirl's (guest star Melissa Benoist) help and travel to Smallville on Earth-38 where they end up meeting Kara's cousin, Clark Kent (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), and intrepid reporter, Lois Lane (guest star Elizabeth Tulloch). LaMonica Garrett guest stars as The Monitor. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Eric Wallace & Sam Chalsen.
Elseworlds, Part 2: THE ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER CONTINUES IN GOTHAM CITY WITH BATWOMAN (RUBY ROSE) — With Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) still stuck in the other's bodies, the two get a lead on John Deegan (guest star Jeremy Davies) and head to Gotham City with Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) to figure out why their reality has changed.
While there, they meet the mysterious Kate Kane (guest star Ruby Rose) who provides them with information that leads the group to Arkham Asylum. James Bamford directed the episode with teleplay by Marc Guggenheim and story by Caroline Dries.
