Check out new images of Batwoman, The Flash, Green Arrow and Supergirl from The CW’s Elseworlds crossover event


The CW’s Elseworlds event is heading our way and EW shared some new images. One shows Ruby Rose as Batwoman and the other features Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Stephen Amell as The Flash, John Wesley Shipp as The Flash and Grant Gustin as Green Arrow.

If that all sounds a bit wonky then that’s because the crossover event deals with alternate realities. That’s one reason why Amell and Gustin have swapped costumes. John Wesley Shipp has featured as The Flash in The CW’s TV shows, but as you can from the new image, he is back in the costume he originally wore when he played the Scarlet Speedster back in the 1990s! Great to see him again.

The story for the ‘Elseworlds’ Arrowverse Crossover will follow Arkham Asylum doc John Deegan rewriting reality, resulting in Oliver and Barry swapping lives and the two heroes are the only ones who know they’re in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers.

Grant Gustin spoke about how the swap with Stephen Amell will play out.

You’re not going to see me playing Oliver Queen’s mannerisms, or Stephen playing Barry’s mannerisms. It’s more being aware that for some reason we’ve switched lives and destinies. It’s more the fun of the situational comedy that we keep finding ourselves in, and less us having a complete role reversal. We get to see Stephen do some of the more goofy speed stuff I have to do on a regular basis, and I get some actual combat as Green Arrow. So, we just see different colours for each of us.

Ruby Rose talked about what it means to be playing Batwoman.

It’s a strange feeling to put on a suit like this that has been custom made for you knowing that it’s going to transform you into a character that does amazing things. You feel very empowered and it just instantly changes everything you feel in that moment.

The fact that she is an outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role. This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past.

This year’s Arrowverse crossover begins Sunday, Dec. 9 with The Flash at 8 p.m., then continues on Monday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. with Arrow, and concludes with Supergirl on Tuesday the 11th at 8 p.m.
