Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen / Green Arrow on The CW’s Arrow, had released the first official poster for the DCTV crossover between ArrowThe Flash, and Supergirl respectively on Twitter on October 16.

The poster features both Amell and Grant Gustin but not as the characters they portray on their respective television shows. Instead, the poster shows that Amell and Gustin have swapped their roles with Amell dressed as The Flash and Gustin aiming an arrow as Green Arrow.

Along with the promotional poster, Amell tweeted out: “My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive,” echoing to the voiceover line that Gustin delivers as Barry Allen / The Flash for the opening credits of The Flash.

The day before the poster was released, Amell said that he “peed a little” when he got his first glimpse at the poster.

Amell clarifies that the poster is authentic and not a fan-made poster, tweeting that: “This is real, btw. I’m in the Flash suit while I type this.”

The three-night crossover, entitled ‘Elsewhere,’ between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl is currently being filmed and is expected to begin on Sunday, December 9 at 8 P.M. Eastern Time / 7 P.M. Central Time.
