Entertainment Weekly took some great exclusive portraits of your favorite Arrowverse stars in their latest EW Cover Shoot.  Check out some great pictures from the EW Cover Shoot below along with statements from the stars!

Stephen Amell

““[When] they offered me the job [on Arrow], if they had said, ‘Yeah, you can have the job, but you have to pay us $5,000 per episode just to be in the show’ I would’ve been like, ‘Yeah, okay. Sure, I’ll do that.  Arrow was the most important thing in my entire life by a wide margin. And then I got married, and it became the co-most important thing in my life. Then my wife and I had [our daughter], and Arrow dropped to number three, but I f–ing care a lot about it. I really, really do. I think about it all the time.”

“[The Arrowverse has] been amazing. I’m so proud of Grant and Melissa, and I really like that Caity has grown into the leader that she has. I’m pumped for Ruby. It’s great [that] you do a show and it births other shows.”

Grant Gustin

“I get to be the Flash on TV, surrounded by all these other superheroes and it’s something I never want to take for granted.”

“It’s definitely become a job and it’s a grind and I work long days, as does most of the cast and all of the crew. But there’s always something in a season that kind of snaps you out of the fact that this isn’t normal.  Like last year when we did the crossovers and Tyler Hoechlin was working as Superman and I got to be on set with Superman for the first time. That was a big moment for me — and then being in the Fortress of Solitude was a mind-blowing moment.”

Melissa Benoist

I’ve kind of grown with this character.  It took me a long time to actually feel that strength [of being a superhero]. I feel like if you don’t feel it from the inside out, it’s not going to translate.”

“That was one of the craziest things I’ve ever done.  It was everyone from Legends, Arrow, and The Flash. At first, I was like, ‘This is Halloween. This feels so silly,’ but then we all stood there and the strength and the power in that room — just putting on the costume — can make you feel like such a different person. We do that all the time, acting, but these suits, they speak volumes. That particular moment is going to stick with me forever because I think we all felt it.”

Caity Lotz

“I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.  I actually felt so weird in costume. I remember talking to my friend and was like, ‘I don’t know. I look terrible in this costume.’ She was like, ‘It doesn’t even matter how you look. All that matters is how you feel. If you feel good, you will look good.’ I was like, “Yes, I feel good. I look good. Let’s do it!’”

“The first big [crossover] with the aliens, that one was really fun.  When we did the wedding scene [in 2017’s “Crisis on Earth-X”], sort of getting the old Arrow crew back together was really fun. I’m curious to see how [the next one, ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’] is going to go because it’s going to be bigger than all the other ones.”

Ruby Rose

“I feel like up until now I haven’t really been given the opportunity to play a character that has these dynamics of such severe trauma and such heartbreak and betrayal and loss. She’s heavy. She has a really heavy heart for a lot of very valid reasons.”

“There’s a lot of things that I identify as with Kate, and some things where I feel like I’ve evolved  certain ways from particular traits she has, and in other ways she has traits that I aspire to get throughout life. So we can kind of learn from one another.  She loves love. There’s not a lot that she wouldn’t do for love, and I am much the same in that regard.”
