The annual CW DCTV crossover won’t air until December, but it’s currently being filmed and story details are slowly beginning to trickle out. This year’s theme is “Elseworlds”. As you can see from the poster, Barry Allen and Oliver Queen will be swapping superhero identities, but that isn’t the only Flash-related surprise from the story. See the photo below, though be mindful of spoilers.
As can be seen here, John Wesley Shipp is back as the `90s Flash. It isn’t known how much he’ll be appearing in the story or what exactly he’ll be doing, but it’s great to see him back in the role and the suit again.
The crossover episodes will air from December 9th to 11th this year, and will include The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl.
This is an exciting development. The 1990 Flash TV Series was hit & miss at times but it was a series that should’ve lasted beyond one season. The episodes are already filmed but this would’ve been the perfect opportunity to introduce a classic ginger Wally West Kid Flash as the John Wesley Shipp Flash’s crimefighting partner. Maybe if the Elsewhere crossover does well enough that idea will be explored in the future. One can hope anyway. 🙂
