The tip of an period occurred on tv in 2023 with the collection finale of The Flash on The CW, which successfully ended the Arrowverse that had begun with only one present all the way in which again in 2012. At its prime (and never counting the divisive “Disaster on Infinite Earths” crossover occasion), the superhero universe was comprised of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. It is due to this fact becoming that Stephen Amell – a.ok.a. Oliver Queen, the superhero who kicked off the Arrowverse – dropped a splendidly nerdy Easter egg about The Flash‘s collection finale.
No, it is not that Amell by some means appeared within the background of the episode and no person observed to comply with up on his look earlier within the last season, though he did identify his first look on The Flash as one in every of his favourite Arrowverse recollections. The Flash finale Easter egg wasn’t one for the eagle-eyed, however for these with an ear for music. Talking with ComicBook.com, Amell shared this concerning the finale of the Scarlet Speedster:
Sure, composer Blake Neely titling his last cue to suit the variety of Arrowverse episodes he scored was a fabulously obscure Easter egg that makes me wish to revisit the Flash finale and hear a little bit extra intently. The present happily did not finish on any enormous hanging cliffhangers to make it irritating to rewatch that final episode, although the door is seemingly open for doable spinoffs.
As any individual who wanted an episode of The Flash to handle a problem leftover from the Arrow collection finale, I do know I used to be glad that Barry and Co. acquired a batch of comfortable and largely closed endings throughout. And kudos to Blake Neely for delivering 641 episodes of memorable music over time!
I additionally get a kick out of Amell because the supply of the trivia about Blake Neely and the collection finale of The Flash, as I can vividly keep in mind watching the very first Arrow/Flash crossover again in 2014 and pondering that the rating to Oliver and Barry’s battle was phenomenal.
The truth is, a part of why I might rank the Inexperienced Arrow vs. Flash showdown from The Flash Season 1 as one of the memorable fights of the Arrowverse is due to the music within the background. Plus, I hope I am not the one one who nerded out just a bit bit when Neely introduced among the Arrow sounds again to The Flash for Amell’s look in Season 8.
You’ll be able to rewatch the nice outdated days of each Arrow and The Flash streaming with a Netflix subscription now. The CW is not completely out of superheroes but regardless of the tip of the Arrowverse, as Superman & Lois has been renewed for Season 4, though with a a lot decreased forged and shorter episode rely than common. The Tyler Hoechlin- and Bitsie Tulloch-led collection is the final superhero present standing for the community, as Gotham Knights was cancelled after one season.
