*Potential Spoilers For Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.*
I'm sure every fan of Arrow and The Flash tuned in to watch the two-part crossover episode: 'Flash vs Arrow,' which was an episode of The Flash, and 'The Brave and The Bold,' an Arrow episode.
The crossover of the two shows was awesome, and served to solidify the foundations of The Flash. The spin-off series staring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen is now going strong under its own steam, yet the two shows are due for another crossover, so what will it be about, and how will it be structured?
Well it's fairly simple really: Arrow and The Flash are coming together to introduce the newest spin-off series, Legends of Tomorrow. Best of all, it seems the latest crossover episodes are due to be a lot better than the originals, which lets face it, were already pretty awesome.
Furthermore, the newest crossover episodes will be more than just crossovers. In an interview with 'Deadline,' writer and producer of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, Marc Guggenheim announced that the next crossover episodes will really be a two-part story.
By this he means that where 'Flash vs Arrow' and 'The Brave and The Bold' each had their own storyline and three-part structure (beginning, middle and end) this season's crossover will have one antagonist with two properly connected episodes.
Unfortunately we're unlikely to see another epic showdown between The Arrow and The Flash, but the last one was awesome enough to last a few seasons!
Guggenheim's Deadline Interview
So what did they discuss in the interview?
Well to start with they delved into many other topics, including the cancellation of Constantine, but things got interesting when their discussion turned to the next crossover.
"There’s a lot of things that are really cool about this year’s crossover, one of which is the fact that there really is a true 2-part story unlike last year where it was two interconnected episodes where each had their own beginning, middle, and end."
This is a big two-part event, one single bad guy, and it will very clearly launch Legends Of Tomorrow. But at the same time what I think is a lot of fun about it is that it doesn’t feel like a backdoor pilot for Legends Of Tomorrow.
It feels like an episode of Flash and then an episode of Arrow. It truly is a 2-hour Flash/Arrow event that just so happens to introduce us to some new characters who will be a big part of Legends Of Tomorrow."
It looks as though the creators of Arrow and The Flash are really taking this crossover seriously.
I suppose that because the two-part story is being used as a platform from which they can launch Legends of Tomorrow, they're working hard to make it even better than the last!
Ready yourselves guys, this mid-season crossover is going to be mind-blowing! Best of all it leads directly into the newest spin-off: Legends of Tomorrow, which will feature the newly revived White Canary, the still-alive Atom, the former villain Captain Cold, the not-a-superhero-yet Hawkgirl, and plenty of others!
