The Super Friends have arrived -- on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's latest issue, that is. The upcoming EW cover features "Arrow" star Stephen Amell hugging "The Flash's" Grant Gustin and "Supergirl's" Melissa Benoist.
The three stars were brought together with actors from their sister superhero series "Legends of Tomorrow" for more than a simple cover shoot. They were there to film scenes for The CW's epic "Invasion" crossover, a storyline that will run from "Supergirl" to "The Flash" and "Arrow," before reaching its conclusion in "Legends of Tomorrow."
The full article appears to be reserved for the print version of the magazine, but the online version does disclose that during the crossover the Flash and Cisco tear a hole in the fabric of space-time and that "someone" will be shot. It also includes a fun making-of-the-cover video, in which the shows' stars talk about which characters from each other's series they want to nab for their own.
The piece concludes with a brief interview with Greg Berlanti, the producer of all four shows. He explains that each one has “to work on multiple levels” and added that “you want them to be fun and enjoyable. But if they’re not about something, why are you showing up to work every day and asking everybody to pour their heart and soul into a story if it’s only about the Flash fighting a villain of the week?”
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.
