The Flash: This Tuesday (25), The CW announced great news for the 8th season of The Flash. The station’s president, Mark Pedowitz, revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the first five episodes of the production will feature crossovers from various Arrowverse titles, with the participation of several heroes.
“The idea for this event on The Flash came with [showrunner] Eric Wallace and [executive producer] Greg Berlanti. We are currently talking about other superheroes on the network, who will appear in individual episodes, ”he commented. “It won’t be a big crossover, but it will have that feeling because of the participation of all the characters,” he said.
Although no members of the cast of any of the CW’s hero productions were mentioned, Cress Williams, the protagonist of Black Lightning, confirmed that The Flash producers contacted him twice to see if he would be interested in making appearances on the series starring Grant Gustin.
However, it seems that the hires are still in the negotiation phase. It is also worth mentioning that the 7th season of The Flash continues to be shown on the channel and should be closed only in the month of July.
