The Flash: Armageddon will have a total of 8 heroes uniting, as well as those we thought we would never see again.
Unveiled last week in preparation for the upcoming eighth – and final? – season of The Flash is this beautiful poster focusing on the crossover event. Entitled “Armageddon,” the Fastest Man Alive will be teaming up with both current and former Arrowverse characters against Despero.
The Flash: Armageddon – Who’s Coming Back To Face Off?
Besides leads Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton), this poster are confirmed players: Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie), Mia Smoak/Green Arrow (Kat McNamara), Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning (Cress Williams), Ray Palmer/The Atom (Brandon Routh), and Alex Danvers/Sentinel (Chyler Leigh). Despero, not featured on this poster, is portrayed by Scottish actor Tony Curran. Osric Chau returns from his debut in “Crisis on Infinite Earths” as Ryan Choi, and fan-favorite villain Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash will be embodied once more by Tom Cavanaugh. Neal McDonough is also confirmed to reprise his role as the villainous Damian Dahrk.
This is the first time since 2019’s “Crisis” crossover that Mia, Jefferson, Ray, and Barry have joined forces. Further, it’s also the first time fans will have seen Black Lightning or Mia since their respective series ended. Kat was set to star in an Arrow spinoff entitled Green Arrow And The Canaries alongside fellow alums Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy, but the project unfortunately fell through when their backdoor pilot failed to garner interest from the studio. Routh left his series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow shortly after “Crisis.” During that crossover, he portrayed both Palmer and his version of The Man of Steel from 2006’s Superman Returns. Cavanaugh, after being a regular on The Flash since its inception seven years ago, left the show last season along with Carlos Valdes, who portrayed S.T.A.R. Labs engineer Cisco Ramon/Vibe. For Javicia, it will be her first crossover since taking over as lead of Batwoman from former star Ruby Rose, who had debuted in the crossover prior to “Crisis” entitled “Elseworlds.” And finally, Leigh will take her final bow as Alex on her show, Supergirl , in the two-hour series finale tomorrow night.
