Elseworlds Crossover: Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin on Their Superhero Suit Swap

Wait, what? Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is the Flash and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is the Green Arrow? Unless you've been avoiding everything "Elseworlds" related, you know by now that the 2018 Arrowverse crossover involves a body-swapping situation of some sort. 

Last month, I spoke with Amell and Gustin about their roles in this year's sure-to-be epic crossover. Which suit do you think is more comfortable? I was surprised.

It's not a total personality swap though, "[Barry's Green Arrow] has my learned abilities, and I have his superpowers," Amell teased. "There are elements of each other’s personality that each of us have to embrace in order to be successful at the mission that’s in front of us."

Meanwhile, this new Oliver Queen may be more Barry than expected, "My Oliver Queen is still a little more animated than [Stephen Amell's] Oliver Queen. I'm also very aware that I'm Oliver Queen, I wasn't really playing Oliver Queen."

Check out the video interviews below for more on the crossover.
