Elseworlds, the highly anticipated DC crossover event is less than a month away. SupergirlArrow, and The Flash will all be telling one storyline between them and it looks to possibly be the best one yet. Gearing up for the event, teaser trailers have been getting released, setting us up for what we already know – Barry and Oliver are not themselves. Yesterday, we got to see Oliver Queen waking up in the Allen-West home and learning that he was now Barry Allen, the fastest man alive.

While that may have been a surprise for him, today’s trailer shows Barry learning that while his speed is gone, he has some new skills. In a sparring match with John Diggle, he manages to rival John’s ability and best him in a match. Knowing he never would have been able to do that as himself, Barry realizes that he is The Green Arrow.

Thanks to the numerous photos the cast posted, we’ve known for a while that Barry and Oliver were going to be trading places, but how will Supergirl fit into this? Will Kara know they are switched or will it seem normal for her as it does for everyone else? Fans are hopeful for a third trailer from Kara’s point of view so we can get some hints about this all goes down and maybe get a glimpse of Ruby Rose as Batwoman.

Elseworlds will premiere Sunday, December 9th, 2018 at 8/7c with The Flash and will continue the following night with Arrow. Supergirl will round out the crossover event on Tuesday, December 11th, 2018.
