This Year’s DC TV Crossover Is ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ with Evil Supergirl, Flash and … With Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all … of the superheroes check into each others’ shows for a major crossover event.
With Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all situated at The CW, it’s now customary to have all of the superheroes check into each others’ shows for a major crossover event. Last season was the first time Supergirl was brought into the mix, and this season, we’ll see new iterations of the DC Comics superheroes getting in on the action, this time as super-powered villains.
The CW and Warner Bros. Television have announced this season’s four-part crossover will be titled Crisis on Earth-X, and they’ve even commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis) to create a comic book cover teasing the epic TV event coming this November. Find out details on the Crisis on Earth-X crossover below.
First up, here’s the comic book cover designed by Phil Jimenez for Crisis on Earth-X:
In the foreground, you’ll notice that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West (Candice Patton) are getting married. All of their superhero friends (including Stephen Amell as Green Arrow and Melissa Benoist as Supergirl) are in town to celebrate their nuptials, and that just so happens to be when villainous versions of Supergirl, The Flash and Green Arrow from Earth-X crash the party and threaten to do more than just ruin the Scarlet Speedster’s wedding.
The evil versions of Supergirl, The Flash and Green Arrow look pretty slick, and hopefully those outfits look just as good when they’re realized on screen. Furthermore, although it hasn’t been formally announced, it seems pretty likely that Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell and Melissa Benoist will all be playing their respective evil counterparts, which should be fun for the superhero stars. But there’s also a new character joining the fight against these bad guys.
