It’s a swerve. Amell is gonna take the mantle instead.Jim Corrigan cast for Crisis:
DISCLAIMER : We will only know for sure about this when we see the crossover
Definitely watch the current seasons of both Flash and Arrow, they directly involve the Crisis storyline.question for the "arrowverse" folk, I'm not a continous watcher of the shows, atm just watching batwoman & titans. I watched flash up to 3rd season, arrow up to 2nd, lot up to 2nd and watched some episodes from the other shows. I watched last years event and really liked it (watched all the different episodes across shows) Now I am interested in this enormous crossover and was planning to watch the final episodes come december..
.. until I saw today that both flash & arrow started with the multiverse story directly. Now my question is : should I watch all the upcoming episodes of the shows they are involving (especially arrow and flash) or should I wait as usual and just the finals ?
Not to mention all of the Smallville sets that got re-used in early seasons of ArrowMan its weird watching Smallville now,
Beginning of S8 first scene with Sam Witwer(Smallville's Doomsday)(Supergirl's Agent Liberty) is helping Jessica Parker Kennedy(Smallville's Plastique)(Flash's XS)
Martian Manhunter keeps showing up, he is Cyborg's dad on Doom Patrol. Half the time he is even Martian Manjobber as well.
seeing Titans Hawk as surfer dude Aquaman is weird as hell lol
The dam from S4 of Supergirl, was the hydro plant seen on Legends and before that was Lex's secret lab HQ in Smallville
Now the fake DDS facility they had Chloe locked up in is literally Arkham Asylum from Elseworlds which was also a hospital in S2 of Supernatural.
You can jump straight to Arrow if you want. There have been no direct references to events between shows yet this season.
watch Flash before Arrow
They don’t reference Arrow, but Flash’s plot is heavily focused on Crisis too so it’s probably a good idea to watch that.
Thanks guys, I'll just follow the episode order then. Wanted to see if I could sneak a peek at the first episode of Arrows new season after I finish Legends, because that S7 ending was awesome.
Definitely watch the Flash season premiere BEFORE the Arrow season premiere if you can.
