New images from The CW’s Arrowverse crossover, Elseworlds, and a synopsis

November 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We got two new images and a synopsis from the upcoming Elseworlds Arrowverse crossover for you today guys.

The images, below, show Ruby Rose in action as Batwoman and the second image has the role-reversed Green Arrow and Flash alongside original TV flash and Supergirl and, yup, we’re loving these! Rose looks awesome as Batwoman!

“It’s a strange feeling to put on a suit like this that has been custom made for you knowing that it’s going to transform you into a character that does amazing things,” says Rose, “you feel very empowered and it just instantly changes everything you feel in that moment.”

No doubt, she looks every-inch the tough crimefighter from Gotham city.

The image below has Batwoman using her grapple gun and a batarang to stop a villain: “I wanted all of the bat toys to be revealed in one scene,” says director James Bamford.

On why she took the role, Rose believes Batwoman is a positive role-model that young girls, and young gay girls in particular, need to see represented on screen: “The fact that she is an outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role.

“This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past.”

As for the character, does she feel like her mentor, Batman: “She’s a lot like Batman in the sense that she’s kind of a dick,” says producer Marc Guggenheim.

UPDATED: New image of Clark and Lois on the farm from Smallville has been added below

We can’t wait to go to Gotham next month in the Arrowverse.

The story for the ‘Elseworlds’ Arrowverse Crossover will follow Arkham Asylum doc John Deegan rewriting reality, resulting in Oliver and Barry swapping lives and the two heroes are the only ones who know they’re in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers.

“Elseworlds” begins Sunday, Dec. 9, with The Flash at 8 p.m.; continues Monday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. with Arrow; and concludes the following night at 8 p.m. with Supergirl.

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….
