Cross-Over Type Feel

In July 2021, Wallace clarified that the five-episode event would not be like a typical Arrowverse crossover, saying, ‘I think it’ll give people that sense of scope that you sometimes feel—both emotionally and in the action sequences—with a crossover, without actually having 20 characters in one scene.’
