First poster for Elseworlds, the Arrowverse 2018 crossover, has our heads spinning…

October 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Wait… what?

Stephen Amell has shared the above poster on his Facebook page for this year’s big Arrowverse crossover, elseworlds and it looks like all bets are of.

For anyone who doesn’t know the image above has Flash actor Grant Gustin dressed as The Green Arrow and Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell dressed as Flash.

So, what does this all mean? Well, it means that The CW are really going to use the Elseworlds title to have some fun!

In the comics, Elseworlds were stories that took familiar characters and put them in unfamiliar situations – Batman V Jack The Ripper, Superman being Russian, that sort of stuff.

This means that we really have no idea what is happening in this big event or who will be playing what role… and that is pretty great. To watch something and have no idea what’s happening? Perish the thought!

Anyway… we can’t wait because these show really deliver with the crossovers and between this and black suit Superman (here), we reckon there’s fun to be had this Christmas too!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
