What can possibly top last year's "Invasion!" superhero crossover, you ask? How about a wedding celebration that's crashed by evil dopplegangers from the Nazi-run Earth-X?!
A lineup of fan favorite heroes and villains will once again suit up and team up for The CW's annual winter event, this year entitled "Crisis On Earth-X." The four-show crossover features characters from Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow gathering for the wedding of The Flash's Barry Allen and Iris West. As no Arrowverse celebration can be clean and simple, visitors from a previously unknown 53rd Earth in the multiverse, Earth-X, breach onto Earth 1 and interrupt the nuptials. As our favorite heroes discover, Earth-X is a desolate version of the planet where Nazis won World War II and its versions of Supergirl and Green Arrow are evildoing enforcers working with the Reverse Flash. With enemies unlike any they've encountered, and a doomsday device threatening Earth 1's existence, our band of super friends team up and head into battle to rescue friends and save the world.
This year, the network opted to let the story unfold as a pair of two-hour movies over back-to-back nights, Monday, November 27th and Tuesday, November 28th from 7-9pm. The event will feature fan favorites as we've never seen them, new costumes, new faces, surprise appearances and team ups, and a whole lot of action-packed fun spanning two planets. Judging by interviews and social media posts, cast members from all of the shows are as giddy for the event as fans of the shows.
Pulling all of the cast and crew members together to essentially film a cohesive four-hour movie in the midst of the regular season's production schedules is a monumental task to accomplish. However, if the last few years' events have proven anything, it's that everyone involved from the studio and network heads to cast and crews to excited fans alike always end up extremely satisfied and entertained, and we wouldn't want it any other way.
