‘The Flash’: “Invasion” Clip; Producers Preview

The four-night crossover event officially began at the end of Supergirl last night Well, sort of… The crossover will feature the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow coming together to take on the evil alien invaders, The Dominators. The Dominators are an Alien race interested in harnessing the gene that gives metahumans their powers to enhance members of their own species.

Ahead of tonight’s episode of The Flash — which is technically part two of the crossover but really the beginning — The CW has released a clip which has all of the heroes trying to decide just who exactly is in charge as the heroes take on their greatest challenge yet. It’s going to be interesting see the three major teams from their respective shows learn how to work together in effort to save the world.

Executive producer Todd Helbing takes us inside the episode to give us a preview of the formation of the super-team, teasing The Dominators as the creepiest thing you’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t quite describe them as the creepiest things ever but they are sure are ugly.

The Flash airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Part three of the four-night crossover will continue tomorrow night on Arrow before concluding Thursday night on Legends of Tomorrow.

Arrowverse Four-Night Crossover Gets a New Teaser Plus New Posters

The CW is about to make history with its epic four-night mega crossover event titled “Heroes Vs Aliens”. The crossover will see the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow all come together to take on the evil alien invaders, The Dominators. The Dominators are an Alien race interested in harnessing the metagene (the gene that gives metahumans their powers) to enhance members of their own species.

Ahead of the crossover event, The CW has released a new found footage teaser that suggests this isn’t the first time the evil aliens have made their way to Earth. Could the time traveling heroes of Legends be taking the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl back in time to prevent the alien threat from invading in the future??

Four new posters have also hit the web. The posters are rather serviceable as they feel a bit rushed in design and don’t feature the best photoshop, most notably the poster for Arrow.

The four-night crossover event begins 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 CassidyJohn BarrowmanNeal Mcdonough, and Susanna Thompson.

‘Supergirl’: “Heroes Vs. Aliens” Preview

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 CassidyJohn BarrowmanNeal Mcdonough, and Susanna ThompsonColin 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.

‘Arrow’ EP Marc Guggenheim Gives New Details on CW Crossover Event

Two weeks ago executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that this year’s D.C. crossover event will see ArrowThe FlashSupergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow team up against The Dominators. In the comics the alien race was interested in harnessing the metagene (the gene that gives metahumans their abilities) to enhance members of their own race.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marc 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.

Whether or not they will succeed in what they’re attempting is yet to be seen. Sometimes these shows try to do too much at once and end up collapsing on themselves. But the crossover this year will no doubt be better than previous years due to its tighter focus. It won’t be concerned with introducing a slew of new characters to launch another series, and rather than having a different plot for each episode of the crossover — the three hour event will see characters from all four shows come together to face The Dominators. I’m most excited to see how Supergirl engages with the heroes of Earth One, and more so how the heroes react to her abilities. Especially Diggle — who was already seen dropping his burger as Martian Manhunter transformed from human to alien form right before his eyes in the Superhero Fight Club 2.0 video.

The crossover is set to begin in November.

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.

‘Arrow’: Wild Dog to Join Crossover

Yesterday, actor Rick Gonzales tweeted out a photo of Wild Dog’s hockey mask set next to Flash’s mask. In an interview with comicbook.com, Rick confirmed Wild Dog’s involvement in the upcoming three part crossover event. I can’t say I’m a fan of the character or that I’m excited about him joining Team Arrow but what Rick had to say definitely piqued my interest. He wasn’t able to comment on his involvement in the crossover but he did comment on the dynamic he will have with Team Arrow and the metahumans from the other DC shows.

I can’t speak on that, but what I can say is that Wild Dog will be in the crossover, and he has a huge dislike for metahumans. So we’ll definitely see him not exactly rub well with The Flash and Supergirl and that’s just another glimpse into his psyche and his ideas and thinking about the world and the idea that there are people out there who have these sort of powers and who they are. Instead of saying ’Wow, these people can do these things,’ he says, ‘no, I don’t like you because this is what you bring to the table. This is what you represent to me.’

In the comics, ‘Wild Dog’ was a star athlete named Jack Wheeler who joined the marines after he sustained a sports injury forcing him off the team—losing his football scholarship—leaving him unable to pay his tuition. His tour with the U.S. Marines was cut short after his comrades were killed by a terrorist bomb. He returned home and ended up falling in love with the daughter of a mob boss who was later on killed.

While Arrow has changed the name of the character from Jack Wheeler to Rene Ramirez, it seems his origin is still grounded in the roots of the source material. Gonzales spoke to TV Guide about Rene’s background, which character he might be closest to because of his past, and the inspiration for his costume.

Wild Dog is ex-military and we’ll soon find out why he’s no longer military and some of the issues he’s had to deal with personally. … Being ex-military, we see he is someone who knows how to handle himself, but has caused a lot of problems in his life, so he’s made things a little bit more difficult in terms of trying to help people and do the right thing. We’ll also find out about his family life and what kind of caused him to have this energy, this darkness, that doesn’t create the best teammate.

On which member he will be closest to:

I think Wendy Mericle mentioned not too long ago that Diggle (David Ramsey) was going to have a connection to Wild Dog. I thought it was really great and interesting that she brought it up, because I think if there would be anyone that Wild Dog would maybe even want to let his guard down or try to connect with, it would be John Diggle. Because throughout the entire show, he’s been the person who has the most reason and always spoke from his heart and who’s always been able to get his point across to every single character on the show. That type of energy, I think Wild Dog would respond well to.

And the inspiration for his costume:

I don’t know much except that it mirrors exactly what we see in the comics, which I thought was really cool. We do know in the comic book that Jack Wheeler is Wild Dog and he’s ex-military and also an ex-football player. But I don’t know if [Rene Ramirez’s] jersey has anything to do with him being an ex-football player or anything of that nature. But I think it’s really cool that Marc Guggenheim and everyone else decided to stay close to what he looks like in the comic book and bring that to the screen. I think the fans are going to get a kick out of that.
