Only one day remains until The CW airs its Elseworlds crossover featuring its assortment of DC superheroes. Before it kicks off with Sunday night’s episode of The Flash, the network has released a new preview for the event. The clip shows new footage punctuated by interviews with the cast and crew about what Arrowverse fans can expect in the coming days.
Once again, the cast members affirm that the crossover begins with Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Barry (Grant Gustin) swapping lives. The switch prompts the two heroes to visit the Kent Farm in Kara / Supergirl’s (Melissa Benoist) universe. It’s while they’re in Smallville that we’re reintroduced to Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent / Superman. We also meet Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane, whom Benoist describes as “a force to be reckoned with.” According to Tulloch herself, “there was no way Lois Lane was going to miss out on any of the action.”

Naturally, one of Elseworlds’ most anticipated inclusions is Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose. It’s clear from her words that the Australian actress isn’t taking this role lightly. “This is an iconic character,” Rose said. “She’s never been played before. I’m trying to do my best for me and make it as badass and kickass as I would like Batwoman to be played.” Another exciting addition is John Wesley Shipp reprising his role as The Flash from the ‘90s live-action series. Gustin admitted that he was “really jealous” of Amell, who wore Gustin’s Flash suit on the day Shipp filmed his costumed scenes.
“We always do the crossovers with one thing in mind,” said executive producter Marc Guggenheim. “It really is for the fans.” Amell also promised that the “Easter eggs” scattered across the three episodes won’t leave viewers disappointed.
