More behind the scenes photos of the filming of the Arrowverse’s crossover event have revealed that a familiar face is returning as the villainous Earth-X version of The Flash.
We previously reported that some leaked photos of the Crisis on Earth-X’s filming showed the Arrow and Supergirl doppelgängers who will be appearing in the crossover, and now, another lot of set photos have surfaced. These confirmed the identity of the Earth-X Flash.
The promo artwork showed the familiar yellow Reverse Flash costume, it wasn’t clear if this would be the Barry Allen version of the character or not – but these pictures confirm the character’s identity.

The leaked photos show Tom Cavanagh wearing the Reverse Flash suit, with the hood pulled down, away from his face. His suit matches that of the Earth-X Flash on the promotional poster, with the yellow suit turning black below the waist. One of the pictures even shows Grant Gustin walking beside Cavanagh in his Flash costume.
Cavanagh’s Harrison Wells was, of course, the Reverse Flash of Earth-1 in the earlier seasons of The Flash, before it was revealed that Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) was the real Reverse Flash, pretending to be Harrison Wells. It isn’t clear how this will play into the Earth-X Reverse Flash’s identity, whether this will also be Thawne-as-Wells, or if this is the true Harrison Wells’ identity on Earth-X.
Either way, it’s great to see Cavanagh back in the Arrowverse, and these pictures are just making us more excited for the crossover.
