The latest crossover between ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ will feature a conflict with Earth X…
Details surrounding the four episode crossover on the CW between ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ have finally been revealed.
The four part series that will kick off on ‘Supergirl’ on Monday, November 27 and wrap up on ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ on Tuesday night, November 28 will focus on a conflict known as ‘Crisis on Earth-X’.
The crossover will be the first time when all four CW superhero series are integrated into one massive event after last season’s version fell flat with some fans after the ‘Supergirl’ episode only involved the post credits scene before the remainder of the conflict took place on the other three shows.
This season, all four series will play a major part in the crossover that will also coincide with a huge event in the ‘Arrow-Verse’ as Barry Allen and Iris West will be getting married!
That’s the premise to kick off the crossover event as Barry and Iris are tying the knot with all of their super friends in attendance for the ceremony when party is crashed by a group of villains from Earth-X. While ‘The Flash’ has crossed over with several other alternate Earths from the multi-verse, Earth-X is set in a time when Germany won World War II and the Flash, Supergirl and Arrow are all villains in that universe.
Legendary artist Phil Jimenez was commissioned to create a comic book cover for the artwork surrounding the massive crossover event for this season.
“We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids,” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. “Phil [Jimenez] was the perfect choice to bring the comic book cover iteration of this idea to life. You can count on one hand the number of artists who could compellingly represent so many characters in a single image.
“Phil is one of them. And his design invokes the cover of Justice League #207, which was the 20th Annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our ten-year-old selves are in heaven.“
In addition to the crossover news, ‘Quantico’ actor Russell Tovey will be making an appearance in the series as ‘The Ray’, who is part of the Freedom Fighters — a band of heroes who are out to stop the villains from Earth-X.
Production on the ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ crossover just started on Friday with the episodes set to air at the end of November.
