The week before the annual DC crossover event begins on The CW, Sunday night’s episode of “Supergirl” closed out with a surprising prologue to the three-parter.
In the 90 second clip, John Wesley Shipp’s classic incarnation of Barry Allen/The Flash from the 1990s TV series returns (complete with costume) in a scene set on ‘Earth 90’.
The clip implies that not only is this the Earth of the original 1990s “The Flash” series, but also could be that within which events of “Smallville” are set as the corpses of several heroes lie on the ground like Hawkman, Stargirl, Captain Cold, etc. along with Green Arrow – but a Green Arrow decked out in the same outfit Justin Hartley’s version of the character wore on “Smallville”.
The clip also introduces The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett), the villain of the crossover, who picks up an artifact and unleashes the power held within. Eight new photos from the upcoming episodes can be seen in the gallery below. “Elseworlds” runs December 9th-11th on The CW.
