Once we first did the crossover again in our third season and The Flash‘s first season, it was very very similar to, it is an episode of Flash the place I present up, and it is an episode of Arrow the place he exhibits up. And even final yr, it was like, Flash confirmed up on Supergirl after which it was an episode of Flash, an episode of Arrow and an episode of Legends. This yr, it is only a four-hour film.

If Inexperienced Arrow seems on an episode of The Flash, then it typically nonetheless looks like an episode of The Flash that merely options Oliver Queen. Even throughout final yr’s “Invasion!” crossover, which noticed the most important ensemble of DC characters on-screen up to now), each episode targeted on the heroes whose names have been on the prime of the marquee.
