A new promo has been released today for the upcoming crossover between Arrow and The Flash, and it features some very fun interactions between the two heroes. As well as seeing them preparing to suit up, the video above also offers up a glimpse of the duo battling it out with Vandal Savage, a villain set to make his presence felt in a huge way in this corner of the DC Universe.
Here’s the official synopsis for the first part of this crossover between Arrow and The Flash, which is titled “Legends of Today”:
In its second major crossover event with “Arrow,” Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.
Last year’s Arrow and The Flash crossover was entertaining, but each of the episodes felt very standalone. That won’t be the case with this one though, as they’ll be setting up the events of the highly anticipated Legends of Tomorrow, so it’ll definitely be interesting to see how everything plays out here, as it should give us a good indication of what we’re in for with the upcoming spinoff.
