Heroes join forces in the new trailer for 'The Flash'/'Arrow' crossover event
Earlier this week we announced the synopsis for the highly anticipated crossover event coming up on "The Flash" and "Arrow". The trailer for the crossover landed Tuesday night, and gives fans an early look at "Legends of Tomorrow" villain Casper Crump and future "Legends" heroes Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
Both "The Flash" and "Arrow" are on hiatus next week for the Thanksgiving holiday, and will return for part one of crossover event December 1, with "The Flash", in an episode titled "Legends of Today". Part two concludes on December 2, on "Arrow", with an episode titled "Legends of Yesterday".
Check out the trailer for the crossover event below:
In the trailer, both teams are seen coming together to fight a villain Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) says is "immortal." This immortal villain seems to be tracking down Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) and Hawkman (Faulk Hentschel), who Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), and the rest of both teams must protect. The tagline for the crossover event is "Heroes Join Forces", which is exactly what needs to happen in order for both teams to defeat immortal villain, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). Hawkgirl also tests out her wings in the trailer, which looks amazing! Cisco's (Carlos Valdes) reaction is perfection.
