The Flash


 

Last year The CW saw a ton of success with their epic four-night crossover event that brought the casts of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legend of Tomorrow together to repel the invading alien race known as The Dominators. Naturally, they’ve been planning another crossover event for the upcoming seasons that would once again bring all of our heroes together on the small screen to face off with a threat too great for any of them to handle individually.

Now the network just revealed when they are planning on airing this season’s crossover event. In an interesting shake up the crossover will begin on Monday, November 27 when Supergirl and Arrow will air back to back with the conclusion coming the following night on The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow air. Though Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow will all air in their normal time slots, for one week only Arrow will move to Monday night from its new Thursday night time slot.

According to Deadline, The CW president Mark Pedowitz commented on the formatting of this year’s crossover saying:

“We felt in this particular case we had Flash and Legends paired, so it was better to make it two two-hour movies – a miniseries – we thought this was the best way to go. We had a lot of conversations with producers and marketing people. Next year, we might go back to four nights.”

It will be interesting to see how fans respond to this idea of essentially airing the massive superhero team-up in two nights instead of four. While it will definitely be nice to see the whole crossover faster without having to wait as long to see it from start to finish, there is something special about tuning in live four nights in a row to watch an ongoing narrative.

The kind of Geek that has several shelves on my book case dedicated to Star Wars novels. Star Wars is essentially a way of life for me. Other things are cool too. Generally a big fan/critic of movies, I try to go to the theater once a week. There's a lot of great TV out there too, chances are if I can, I'll write about the stuff I love. I dig the Marvel and D.C. universes so far...except Suicide Squad...that was a disappointment. I love a lot of music but I gravitate to alternative and punk. The Libertines are my absolute favorite. Michigan born and raised and I root for my home teams; Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, Pistons and Spartans.
