It’s that time of the year again. Crossover time! The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and the Legends of Tomorrow are joining forces yet again for a two-night event. Crisis On Earth-X will find the heroes from across four different CW shows teaming up against the Earth-X doppelgangers.
The crossover event is described as follows:
Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) and Iris’s (guest star Candice Patton) wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), The Ray (guest star Russell Tovey), Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards), Iris West and Alex Danvers to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz) – lead their teams into battle to save the world.
We have the official trailer which features our first look at Evil Kara, Evil Oliver, and the Reverse Flash attempting to take over our Earth, and Barry and Iris’ wedding. Check out the trailer for CW’s Crisis On Earth-X below:
The crossover event is sans Martian Manhunter but still boasts the largest gathering of CW heroes thus far. The trailer features the supers gathered together on the Waverider as the villains of Crisis On Earth-X, which have the benefit of built-in development and emotional weight since they are evil versions of characters we already know, unfurl their destructive abilities upon our world.
The CW also released a massive amount of photos to rev up the hype around Crisis On Earth-X, nearly 100 production stills from the two-night event showcase everything from Barry and Iris’ wedding (and inevitable interuption) to each of the villains like Melissa Benoist as Overgirl and Tom Cavanagh returning as the Reverse Flash. You can check out several of them below:
CW’s shows have gone bigger and more connected as the years go on. This two-night event if more or less a four-hour movie, with budgets that rival some mid-budget Hollywood spectacles. It remains to be seen if Crisis On Earth-X can outdo what fans have expected in the way of fun and compelling storytelling but judging by the lead-up to the TV event, things are looking good.
This year’s four-part crossover Crisis on Earth-X will air across two nights, beginning Monday, November 27 with Supergirl and Arrow (on a special night for one week only) and concluding Tuesday, November 28 with The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
