It's a little under two weeks until the TV Crossover event of the year when the scarlet speedster himself The Flash turns up in National City and comes face to face with Supergirl. Last month, it was announced that the CW's speed-force to be reckoned with - The Flash - would be crossing over with CBS' new juggernaut Supergirl. As fans of this crossover, Wednesdays have been particularly kind to us: the official confirmation of the crossover first broke on a Wednesday, Grant Gustin tweeted images from the set on a Wednesday, we got the synopsis and the amazing comic-themed poster last Wednesday and now this Wednesday we have gotten some amazing brand new photos from the crossover! Check some of them out below:
Grant Gustin had previously instagrammed images of himself and Melissa Benoist on the set of Supergirl, "glee"fully documenting the event on Instagram (see what I did there?!) ;) Thus, it sent some fans of both shows into a frenzy. And now with these official images released, the antipication continues to build!
As well as Benoist and Gustin, the episode will also feature Brit Morgan who will return as Livewire (she previously starred in episode 4 of Supergirl "LiveWire") as well as the awesome Italia Ricci as Silver Banshee. By the looks of things, both of them will have an agenda with their former boss, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart).
The episode is set to be a major event for both shows and fans are eagerly anticipating the crossover. Both Gustin and Benoist have co-guest-starred in two episodes of Glee together as Sebastian Smythe and Marley Rose but they never interacted - small world huh? But this will be a whole new ball game - Seeing Barry Allen interact with Kara Danvers is sure to be a treat!
When the Flash arrives in Supergirl's world, he agrees to help her stop the duo of LiveWire and Silver Banshee in return for her helping him find his way back home! This is sure to be a "must-see" episode for fans of both shows (and/or fans of 'Arrow' and 'Legends of Tomorrow' as well) and I, for one, cannot wait to see this!
