Here comes the Flash! Just a day after dropping “Supergirl’s” “Arrow”-verse crossover poster, The CW has released a “Flash”-centric poster that puts Barry Allen front and center, while Cisco opens a portal to Supergirl’s world. Both fan favorite characters stand on the steps of a large brick building, one which will look very familiar to longtime DC fans.
Though the building bears the STAR Labs logo, it doesn’t look too much like “The Flash’s” version of STAR Labs. Instead, it borrows the look of “Super Friends'” Hall of Justice. Debuting in the late 1970s, “Super Friends” united heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman; together, they fought to put an end to the Legion of Doom, a group of super villains that will be making their live-action CW debut in “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” sometime this season.
The “Super Friends” homage is, of course, appropriate, as next week’s “Invasion!” crossover will bring all of The CW’s DCTV shows — and their heroes — together. Between “Supergirl,” “The Flash,” “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” The CW boasts more than 10 individual heroes. When the Flash discovers an alien invasion, he brings Supergirl to their universe in order to stop it. Together, they will face down the Dominators, mind-controlling aliens who have grown so concerned about Earth’s metahuman threat that they have decided to stomp it out before it can reach the stars.
Additionally, “The Flash” poster interconnects with the “Supergirl” poster that was released yesterday. It seems likely, then, that “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow’s” upcoming posters will also connect all the way through to form one, larger image. Once all these posters have been released, the interconnected image will offer a better look at the building behind our heroes. While it’s unclear if this building will serve the same function as it did in “Super Friends,” it is a nice wink to the earlier series.
Starring Melissa Benoist as the Girl of Steel, “Supergirl” airs Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The network is also home to Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster in “The Flash,” airing Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT, Stephen Amell as the Emerald Archer in “Arrow,” airing Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT and Arthur Darvill, Brandon Routh and Caity Lotz in “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” airing Thursdays at 8 pm ET/PT.
