Title: DC's Elseworlds, Arrowverse Crossover
Post by: Shogunn2517 on December 10, 2018, 05:16:23 AM
If anyone's paying attention, the Arrowverse has just started their fifth annual crossover.

If you haven't been paying attention, this crossover will not feature "Legends of Tomorrow", but will only be with characters from "Supergirl", "The Flash" and "Arrow". And without revealing too much of the plot, what's been in the news is there will be a new character featured in the crossover as well...

Yep, I knew about this crossover. It got quite a bit of promotion. There are apparently 6 different trailers for it (most of which was composed of a lot of the same footage) and the episodes leading in to it all had the same little teaser added to the end.

Lol I could feel the weird look on my face when it played. My nose crinkled up with this goofy arse grin on my face like "What the hell is going on?!"

Yeah, that was pretty awesome, SS!

Yup, enjoying this one.  Episode two confirmed a few things and was overall fun.

All in all really enjoying it.  The smaller cast and more inidividual episodes have really paid off, I think.

Also Legends made a joke about missing the crossover.  Apparently the cast of it called them, but they ignored it.

Legends on the other hand, apparently looked at all the people online saying "This show sure is getting silly these days!" and said [in Mick's voice] "Hold my beer."

This is basically the Legends' version of that X-Files Mandala Effect episode from last year. I think I liked that one better though.

[edit] I got ninja'd!

Yeah, finally saw Part II and it seemed to confirm a few things.

BTW, odd coincidence but this being the official Arrow Episode, there have been two actors from this show that were also in the video game Fight Night Champion.

Good catches. I was pretty sure I'd missed stuff but Have not rewinded to catch more stuff (or read about it online) I may have to rewind and check again sometime.

The thing I keep thinking about this crossover is how much it reminds me of an MCU movie. All the callbacks, the easter egg references for the fans, expanding the lore, doing a story you really could only do after all the stuff you've built up over the years.  I mean, yeah, the last two crossovers were kinda like that, but I think it's the easter eggs and the multiverse skullduggery that has me thinking this. Speaking of which...

This is now my favorite of all the crossovers so far.  It was focused, it was fun, and it was filled to easter eggs and references.

That ending though!

Yeah, it was pretty exciting... But I can't help but to wonder.

So I'm seeing a lot of speculation here about stuff being a bit confusing, and I feel like the writers know that and there's a solution coming.

So I was rewatching Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, and the same riddle appears in that movie. The answer was that the Riddler would beat a security guard black and blue if he didn't do what he wanted. I wonder if they were specifically referencing that movie when they put that riddle in the crossover, or it was just a coincidence.

Seeing that the Arrow thread is buried somewhere...
3 part Downfall of Arrow on YT.Summing up how things went wrong.Nothing I havent said myself,but an interesting watch.
I hear season 5 tried to return to its roots,but I doubt that worked out.

The last few seasons have all tried to return to it's roots, but it doesn't help that much.

This season, they have abandoned that completely--and the show is actually a bit better now.

Being better then season 4 shouldnt be that hard.
Well,first two seasons are great tv,after that it went downhill to be honest.
