This Year's Arrowverse Crossover Is Titled 'Elseworlds'

The CW has officially unveiled the title for this year's Arrowverse crossover: Elseworlds.

At DC Comics, Elseworlds is an imprint for stories that take place outside the continuity of the main DC Universe. Elseworlds titles include ionic works like Kingdom ComeGotham by Gaslight and Superman: Red Son, from which Supergirl Season 4 will draw inspiration. As such, the Arrowverse crossover's Elseworlds title appears to suggest an alternate universe or alternate timeline, but there are no further details at this time.
