Fans are hotly anticipating CW's latest DC crossover Elseworlds, but the new poster for it just put fans into overdrive.
The new poster for those who haven't seen it features Arrow's Stephen Amell wearing the Flash costume, while Flash's Grant Gustin is doing his best impression of Oliver Queen in the Arrow costume. It's throwing fans for a loop, and they have been sharing their opinions online ever since it dropped.
Elseworlds is shaping up to be something special, as it not only features Arrow and Flash switching up their suits but also features the return of Superman, who happens to be wearing a black costume. It will also feature the debut of Lois Lane to the Arrowverse, as well as the introduction of Ruby Rose's Batwoman, who will be getting her own series later down the line.
In fact, Amell recently went on the record saying this is the hands down the best crossover they've done so far, and that's saying something since Crisis On Earth X wasn't exactly a downer.
"The crossover is f****** bananas. It's crazy... I think that this will be the best crossover event that we do. And not just the best but the best by a really, really wide margin. And I think that last year was fantastic," Amell told fans during a Facebook Q&A. "Crisis on Earth X, I think that's what it was called, that was pretty crazy and getting to play doppelgängers was pretty crazy. When Greg Berlanti first talked to me about why he wanted to do crossovers, it was because it's for the fans. It's so people can watch characters and scenarios that combine their favorite things on TV or introduce them to new things on TV. But you also get this license to do things that we could never do in the vacuum — especially on Arrow — that we can never do in the vacuum of just our show."
That's pretty high praise, but let's see what DC fans are saying.
The new poster is throwing fans for a loop, but even though they aren't sure what is quite going on they are still pretty excited about it.

Is Supergirl Next?
There's also the question of if Flash and Arrow have switched costumes, what happens to Supergirl? One fan has a theory, and it is causing her to freak out.

It seems apparent that another Earth is involved at this point (it is called Elseworlds after all), and some are hoping that means we get to see a team-up between our Earth's heroes and the other Earth's heroes at some point.
Very interesting indeed, I would say were on another Earth for sure, just hope we get to see a little of the all of the Earth-1 and Earth-38 heroes together in one of these episodes #DCTV #elseworlds #TheFlash #Arrow https://t.co/0pbYglysDj— Let's Talk DCTV (@Lets_Talk_DCTV) October 16, 2018

Someone Is Missing...
Other fans are a little annoyed that the poster only features Flash and Arrow, while Supergirl and Batwoman are left off.

A Fan Of The New Color
It's odd seeing Stephen Amell in the Flash costume's bright red colors, but there is one fan who loves it, and probably wouldn't be opposed to seeing more of it.

What About Iris?
Seeing the heroes pull the switcharoo also brings up a question of what The Flash's other characters will look like in this new universe, including Iris herself Candice Patton.

All About The Chin
The Flash got a new costume this year, which decided to forego the chin strap of earlier suits. One fan thinks that the answer to why has finally been discovered, and it all has to do with Amell's chin.
"#Elseworlds Now I know why they didn't do the chin strap, cause there is no chin strap in the world that can handle that chin.
With the new poster showing heroes are trading places, one fan has a theory, especially when you factor in all the other elements of this crossover.
There is so much going on in this crossover! Batwoman, Black Suit Superman, Costume Swapping, Trigger Twins! What about if each episode of the crossover is a different #Elseworlds story? Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/OtAUvW49A5— Declan (DCTV TALK) McKinney (@DeclanMckinney) October 16, 2018

Could This Be Supergirl?
If Flash and Arrow are trading places, it figures Supergirl will also get a new look for Elseworlds, and one fan pictures it very close to Power Girl's look.
