Since 2012, the Arrowverse has grown from a little gritty show into a whole television universe including hit series like Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. With massive casts and iconic roles, these actors have a lot on their plate -- and some pretty strict rules to follow in the process. One of the biggest perks of being an actor on an Arrowverse show is having the ability to play a memorable superhero or supervillain. In the case of the villain, there have been numerous times where a masked villain needed to keep their identity a secret. We’ve seen this a TON on the Flash, with characters like Reverse Flash, Zoom, and Savitar hidden behind a mask before their big reveal. But there’s a specific rule that prevents the actor from portraying the actual role. When a superhero gets called into action within the Arrowverse -- there’s pretty much one strict rule: those costumes have to be tight. This is pretty much a given across all superhero realms, but we see it week in and week out in the Arrowverse. The only hero who has an exception is pretty much Constantine, who’s messy look is all part of the design. Wearing a tight costume is an essential part of the process, for both males and females. Due to his high-speed running, Barry Allen’s Flash costume may be the tightest of them all, but heroes like the Black Canary are in some pretty tight outfits as well.
Besides general rules that any actor should follow, there are some specific guidelines which cater to both the Arrowverse productions and the CW as a whole. Join us as we break these rules down and discuss one rule that has a deep rooted connection with the classic TV show “Smallville”.
