In less than three weeks, fans will bear witness to the second annual two-part crossover event of The Flash and Arrow. Not only will said event once again unite our favorite prime time heroes, but it will introduce Hawkman and Vandal Savage, acting as a backdoor pilot of sorts for the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow. And, if the official synopses are any indication of what’s to come, this crossover sounds like a comic book fan’s dream come true.
First, let’s address The Flash side of the coin. “Legends of Today” is directed by Ralph Hemecker with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing. It will air on Tuesday, December 1 at 8:00 pm EST on The CW.
Here’s the official word:
“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, they turn to Barry 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 develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.”
As for Arrow, its portion of the crossover, “Legends of Yesterday,” is directed by Thor Freudenthal with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Brian Ford Sullivan & Marc Guggenheim. It will air on Wednesday, December 2 at 8:00 pm EST on The CW.
Here’s the official synopsis for that particular episode:
“Oliver and Barry Allen take Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall to a remote location to keep them hidden from Vandal Savage while they figure out how to defeat him. Malcolm arranges a meeting between Vandal, Green Arrow and The Flash that doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Felicity, Thea, Diggle and Laurel work with Team Flash to come up with a weapon powerful enough to destroy Vandal Savage.”
