We’ve gotten teasers, trailers and plenty of eyebrow-raising images, and yet there’s still much we don’t know about the quickly approaching “Elseworlds”—The CW’s three-part #DCTV crossover that features some juicy multiversal mayhem, along with the return of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman, the debut of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, and so much more. Thankfully, the network is starting to ease our curiosity, and this week released both a new collection of images and some intriguing episode descriptions that help to paint the picture about what to expect. Here they are, in order...
Elseworlds, Part 1 (Airs Sunday, 12/9 on The Flash)
EPIC ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER KICKS OFF TONIGHT -- When Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) wake up one morning and realize they have swapped bodies with each other, the two set off to find out what disturbed the timeline to cause such a shift. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when they present their case to Team Flash and the gang doesn't believe them. Barry and Oliver realize they need Supergirl's (guest star Melissa Benoist) help and travel to Smallville on Earth-38 where they end up meeting Kara's cousin, Clark Kent (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), and intrepid reporter, Lois Lane (guest star Elizabeth Tulloch). LaMonica Garrett guest stars as The Monitor. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Eric Wallace & Sam Chalsen (#509).
Elseworlds, Part 2 (Airs Monday, 12/10 on Arrow)
THE ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER CONTINUES IN GOTHAM CITY WITH BATWOMAN (RUBY ROSE) -- With Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) still stuck in the other's bodies, the two get a lead on John Deegan (guest star Jeremy Davies) and head to Gotham City with Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) to figure out why their reality has changed. While there, they meet the mysterious Kate Kane (guest star Ruby Rose) who provides them with information that leads the group to Arkham Asylum. James Bamford directed the episode with teleplay by Marc Guggenheim and story by Caroline Dries (#709).
Elseworlds, Part 3 (Airs Tuesday, 12/11 on Supergirl)
THE BATTLE CONCLUDES -- Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) engage in the battle of their lives. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Derek Simon & Robert Rovner (#409). Original airdate 12/11/2018.
Now, we can’t help but notice that third description is a little light on detail…as are most of the photos from that episode. We suspect something major takes place between part two and part three. Care to speculate on what that may be? While you do, go on and take a look at the newest photos below, and be sure to take a pass through the previously released ones as well. Just a little more than a week to go! Who’s ready?
“Elseworlds,” a three-night #DCTV crossover event, begins on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST) on The CW.
