A number of Justice League members have assembled (pardon the use of the word) in the first officially-released teaser image from the forthcoming crossover between Arrow and The Flash.
The two-episode event will introduce characters who will eventually populate DC's Legends of Tomorrow, launching in January on The CW, and will air in three weeks, following a one-week hiatus for Thanksgiving in the U.S.
The episode is expected to pit Green Arrow, The Flash and their allies against Vandal Savage, the immortal cave man who will ultimately become the big bad of Legends of Tomorrow. Legends stars Franz Drameh (Firestorm II), Caity Lotz (White Canary) and Brandon Routh (The Atom) have already checked in this season, and even Ciara Renee (Hawkgirl) has made a cameo, albeit not in costume. Both Hawkman and Rip Hunter are expected to appear in the crossover episodes, which have been described as a "true" two-part story, rather than the two stand-alone team-up stories told last year during the crossover episodes.
Given that the image was shared by Marc Guggenheim on Twitter -- and that Guggenheim is the executive producer on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow but doesn't work on The Flash -- it's probably reasonable to assume the image comes from an upcoming episode of Arrow.
"We do talk about Legends as a Justice League of sorts," Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle recently told ComicBook.com. "Sort of our version of it. It is, as you know from everything that's already been released, it's a group of superheroes, or "Legends", so to speak, out there being heroes. It does have a different tone, though. One of the things that's really exciting about it having it come up in this universe, in this context, is how different it is from Flash and from Arrow. It has a very different feel, and the time travel element is completely new to both shows. It's really fun. It's turning out to be just really bad-ass."
