As with last year, The CW is running a crossover event for “The Flash” and “Arrow” during the first week of December. The 8th episodes of both seasons combine to form a 2-parter that sees all of the DC TV Universe’s heroes coming together to face a dangerous threat. It will also function as a backdoor pilot into the “Legends of Tomorrow” series that will debut early next year.
So what is the threat that brings the likes of Green Arrow, The Flash, Black Canary, The Atom, Speedy, etc., as well as newcomers Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), together? None other than the immortal Vandal Savage. The first episode of the event, “Legends of Today”, will air on “The Flash” on Tuesday, December 1st. The second, “Legends of Yesterday”, will come via “Arrow” on the following night. I suspect a promo for the latter will be showcased on this evening’s episode of “Arrow” and be up online tomorrow. Once it is, we’ll have it in front of your eyes.
