The first look at this years CW mega-crossover event is here. The 4-night crossover will feature The Dominators as the main villains set to take on the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. In the comics, The Dominators were an Alien race interested in harnessing the metagene (the gene that gives metahumans their powers) to enhance members of their own species featured in the storyline titled “Invasion”. The four-episode event will be the network’s biggest crossover in history.
The 4-night crossover event begins in three weeks at the end of Supergirl on Monday, November 28th, and will then carry over to The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday, and conclude on Legends of Tomorrow that Thursday night.
The crossover episode of Arrow also happens to be the series’ 100th episode and will see the return of many cast members including Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Neal Mcdonough, and Susanna Thompson. Colin Donnell‘s schedule could not allow him to return as he is currently committed to Chicago Med but Marc Guggenheim promises the character of Tommy will be represented in the episode he describes as a love letter to the show’s previous 99 episodes.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Guggenheim dished on the upcoming crossover which he said will be the most ambitious filmmaking in the history of network television.
This year, we’re doing by far the most ambitious crossover we’ve ever done. It’s basically a huge three-part story that also brings in Supergirl, so it’s crossing over all four shows. It’s telling one big epic movie of a story. It’s not setting up any other spin-offs, it’s just big, bombastic, huge action. There’s also some really poignant character moments. There’s a lot of plot lines, particularly I would say in Flash and Legends, that come to fruition in the crossover. It’s by far the most ambitious thing we’ve ever attempted. I want to say it’s by far one of the most ambitious things anyone in network television has ever attempted. It’s completely insane.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m., and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
