Since Supergirl joined the CW line-up last May, plans began for what is perhaps the most ambitious superhero project since The Avengers themselves, the four-series, four-night epic team-up of all the CW’s superhero shows. Those plans come to fruition in just a few weeks time as Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow come together to fight the terror of the Dominators, because what better way to bring superheroes together than giving them an alien invasion to fight. Well, now available for your building excitement is the CW’s first trailer for the crossover event, which literally promises (as per Felicity Smoak) the best team-up ever!
The four-part crossover will be loosely inspired by the 1988 DC Comics crossover Invasion! were the alien Dominators come to Earth to eliminate its metahuman population, which is perceived as an unpredictable threat to universal order. The CW version will see Green Arrow, the Flash, Firestorm, Atom, et al team-up with a multiverse hopping Supergirl in order to stop the Dominators attack. As previously stated by Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim, “We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”
So shall we take a look at this official tease of the crossover? Keep you eyes peeled and you might see an “old friend” from the early days of Arrow too.
The crossover begins Monday November 28 on Supergirl, and continues through Tuesday night on The Flash, Wednesday night on Arrow, and concludes Thursday December 1 on Legends of Tomorrow.
