With the crossover event of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ less than a month away we’re finally starting to get some details, images, and even a promotional video of what to expect from the confrontation that goes down between the two heroes. It all starts out on Tuesday December 2nd when the two join forces to take down a killer. Yes, they join forces, only things aren’t going quite as planned and it isn’t friendly rivalry that gets between the two.
No, It’s one of Central City’s villains that causes this partnership to go south. According to The CW:
Barry (Grant Gustin) is thrilled when Oliver (guest star Stephen Amell), Felicity (guest star Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) come to Central City to investigate a case involving a deadly boomerang. Excited about teaming up with his friend, Barry asks Oliver if he’d like to help him stop Ray Bivolo, the meta-human Barry is currently tracking. Bivolo causes people to lose control of their emotions and has been using that skill to rob banks. Unfortunately, the superhero partnership doesn’t go as smoothly as Barry expected. When Oliver tells Barry he still has a lot to learn, Barry sets out to prove him wrong by attempting to stop Bivolo alone.
However, when Bivolo infects Barry and sets him on a rage rampage, everyone is in danger, and the only one who can stop him is the Arrow. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) is furious when Eddie (Rick Cosnett) tries to get a task force to stop The Flash; Joe and Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) agree the Arrow is a bad influence on Barry; and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in S.T.A.R. Labs.
Sounds like a great way to set the two at odds which can lead everyone shaking hands and working things out in the end. While I am absolutely sick of the hero vs hero stories that have been more and more popular over the past few years it’s good to see one that clearly has an end point in mind by it’s very design.
The CW has also shared some photos of the confrontation between these two below:
Of course while a picture can be worth a thousand words, a video can be better! Here’s a promo video of what’s to come as well!
Do you think they have a good premise on why these two heroes are going to be going at it? Looking forward to these friends temporarily turned enemy next month? Share your thoughts below!
