Stephen Amell Teases ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Supergirl,’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Crossover with New Set Photo

Very shortly after Supergirl was announced to be transitioning over from CBS to The CW for its second season later this Fall, the home of the other main DC TV shows including Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, some of the executive producers behind the series revealed that fans could indeed expect to see a mega crossover between the four series later this year. A possibility that fans had been wondering about ever since The Flash and Supergirl had their adorable crossover earlier this year.

Now, as production continues for all of the shows on their respective seasons, it looks like fans may not have to wait long for that crossover after all.

The Green Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, posted the following photo on social media yesterday, causing DC fans to undestandably freak out, as the photo seems to feature him, Grant Gustin’s Flash, Caity Lotz’ White Canary, and Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl already on the same location together, filming in their costumes.

His Facebook post of the image also featured the caption “Coming Soon,” and considering that there’d really be no reason for all of these actors to be in the same location at the same time, other than for a crossover episode, it looks like that caption may even be more accurate than we would have thought earlier. Speculation about the crossover happening soon began last week though also, when Amell posted a photo from the Supergirl set alongside Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent.

It’s hard to know for sure what the crossover itself will be about, or even how Benoist’s Supergirl will be able to interact with the other characters, since it was established last season that she existed in a different universe than the other three shows, with only Barry able to travel in between the different universes. Many fans believe one of the changes resulting from “Flashpoint” this season though, could be bringing Supergirl into the same reality, which could certainly solve some of the bigger narrative hurdles they’d have to jump over in the crossover.

    The Flash, Supergirl crossover episode was so so so bad!
    The acting and writing were laughable.
    Maybe if Kevin Smith wrote and directed it would be epic.
