With the next major Arrowverse crossover, “Elseworlds,” being only a few weeks away from hitting our screens, we’re starting to see the hype machine kick into high gear. In the past week or so alone, we’ve been treated to new photos and even some brief teaser promos. And things don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, either, which is perfectly fine with us.
Case in point: Up above you can lay eyes on the latest teaser for “Elseworlds.” However, unlike the last two which focused on Barry Allen and Oliver Queen swapping bodies, this one places the focus on Supergirl, who seems to be locked up somewhere and in trouble. It’s rather brief and doesn’t give away a whole lot, but the plot synopsis below – which was released a few days ago – may shed some more light on things.
“The three-night event begins with Arkham Asylum doc John Deegan (Lost’s Jeremy Davies) rewriting reality, which results in Oliver (Amell) and Barry (Gustin) swapping lives. In this new reality, Oliver Queen looks like Gustin and Barry Allen looks like Amell, and the two heroes are the only ones who know they’re in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers. This not only explains what’s going on in the recent promos, but also why the actors have swapped costumes.”

From the presence of John Wesley Shipp to the debut of Batwoman to Superman’s black suit and, of course, the fact that Barry and Oliver have seemingly traded places, it’s been tough to figure out just how all these puzzle pieces fit together in the grand scheme of things and what The CW has planned for us. But if one thing’s for certain, it’s that “Elseworlds” will be one heck of an event – maybe even the best one yet – that’s for sure.
And it all goes down on Sunday, December 9 on The Flash, continues on Monday, December 10 with Arrow, and wraps up on Tuesday, December 11 with Supergirl. At this point, the only question that remains is, will you be tuning in? Let us know by commenting down below!
