Watch an Extended Trailer for the Huge Arrow/Flash Crossover, "Legends of Today"
< >
After a brief break for Thanksgiving, The Flash will return on December 1 with "Legends of Today," the first part of the two-hour Arrow/Flash crossover event. In this extended trailer, we see the huge roster of superheroes (nine in all, according to the rumor mill), as well as Hawkgirl's first attempt at unfurling her wings:


This episode, and most likely the Arrow chapter of the crossover as well, basically serves as a backdoor pilot for Legends of Tomorrow (if that wasn't already obvious from the title). Hawkgirl and Hawkman are essentially getting an origin story, and the Arrow/Flash team will face off with Vandal Savage, an immortal DC Comics villain who will serve as the Big Bad of the spin-off series. 

Here's the promo for the two-hour crossover event, and the official synopsis for the Flash chapter:



Opening quote
PART ONE OF THE EPIC CROSSOVER WITH "ARROW" - In its second major crossover event with "Arrow," Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing (#208).
