Though we won’t get a backdoor pilot for The Flash later this season, Arrow is still planning a big ol' crossover with the upcoming DC spinoff — and here’s the first clip.
Along with introducing Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) this season, Arrow has accomplished quite a bit of world-building to set up the existence of Flash’s hometown Central City. Very soon, we’ll get to meet two of its more shady residents in future comic villain Killer Frost and Justice League member Vibe. The characters are expected to recur in the Flash series once it launches this fall.
The Flash characters of Caitlin Snow/KIller Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) are set to show up in this week’s episode, “The Man Under the Hood,” airing April 16. The first footage of the duo finds them breaking into a warehouse … and having a run-in with Deathstroke. Uh-oh.
In addition to the new footage, which comes at the halfway mark of this clip, we also get some nice interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from the show thanks to DC All Access:
Arrow airs Wednesday nights on The CW.
