On an early October afternoon, the casts of The CW’s “Arrowverse” serials gathered in an airport hangar on the outskirts of Vancouver B.C. for a historic event. From Arrow, there was Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen, aka the show’s emerald archer), David Ramsey (Diggle/Spartan), Willa Holland (Thea Queen/Speedy) and Emily Brett Rickards (Felicity Smoak). From The Flash, there was Grant Gustin (Barry Allen, aka the show’s scarlet speedster), Candice Patton (Iris West), Tom Cavanagh (H.R. Wells), Danielle Panabaker (Dr. Caitlin Snow) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco/Vibe). From Legends of Tomorrow, there was Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Franz Drameh (Jax, one half of Firestorm), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein, the other half of Firestorm). And from Supergirl, there was the maiden of might herself, Melissa Benoist, the only actor dressed in their caped crusader colors. (Must be dry cleaning day at the Hall of Justice.)
Calling this unprecedented all-star squadron of comic book stars to order, director Dermott Downs instructed them to perform a very important heroic duty: Surprising Benoist with a “Happy Birthday” serenade. “That was overwhelming,” says the actress, who turned 28 on the day in question. “I think that will be the first and only time I will be sung to by a group of superheroes.” Of course, Benoist and all of her Super-Friends had to actually work on her birthday; not even the girl of steel gets a day off for turning another year older. The occasion of this massive team-up: filming a four-show crossover event, which begins in the final scene of the Nov. 28 episode of Supergirl and unfolds over the next three nights in episodes of The Flash, Arrowand Legends. Entertainment Weekly visited the set of the massive undertaking and brings you a report in our new issue, on sale this week. We got to see Supergirl fly, The Flash and Cisco tear a hole in the fabric of space-time (or pretend to), and even saw someone get shot. No, we can’t tell you who, but we can tell you the threat that set the sprawling plot in motion: The Dominators, mind-controlling extraterrestrials threatened by Earth’s surging population of metahumans. If you’re wondering if “mind-control” = “we’re totally going to see these superheroes fight each other,” then you’re absolutely [REDACTED].
One scan of Grant Gustin from the October 9th issue of Entertainment Weekly has been added to the gallery. In it, Grant answers a few quick questions.
A big thank you goes to Grant Gustin News for giving the heads up to post these exclusive outtakes!
COVER STORY: The couch in Greg Berlanti’s spacious office on the Warner Bros. lot is crowded with needlepointed throw pillows, all gifts from his mother — one for each of his series, the successes along with the noble failures. There’s “Everwood,” “Political Animals,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” and “Arrow,” festooned with, yes, a black plastic arrow.
With this season’s pickup of three new shows from Berlanti Prods., spanning three networks — CBS’ “Supergirl,” NBC’s “Blindspot” and the CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” — soon there won’t be room for guests to get comfortable.
Luckily, the pillows take a while to make their way to his couch. “There’s a woman who does the needlepoint, and then my mother ‘produces’ them,” he says with a laugh. “She just feels like she makes them.”
But that’s not his producing style.
Grant is on the cover of the April issue of AstroView, a digital magazine. By downloading AstroView Magazine app (avaliable for both Android and IOS and free), you can watch Grant’s interview!

From Superman and Wonder Woman to The Flash, more than 10,000 characters populate the universe of DC Entertainment. For TV networks seeking a foothold in a world of increasing competition for every great script, and in which cable operators are looking for any excuse to cut the number of channels they carry, that mighty legion of superheroes could prove to be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Comics have long been source material for TV programming—in fact, the biggest show on TV at the moment is AMC’s The Walking Dead, based on the Robert Kirkman graphic novels from Image Comics.
With the current explosion in popularity of superhero film franchises ranging from Marvel blockbusters like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy to other comics-born fare like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Big Hero 6, broadcast and cable networks are getting in on the action in a big way, often turning directly to the writers and artists who create the characters.
Scans from the December 5th issue of Entertainment Weekly have been added to our gallery.
