Crisis On Earth-X

The ultimate Crisis is looming.  Next week, the champions of The CW’s DC superhero shows team up to take on an entire world in ‘Crisis on Earth-X’, set on a 53rd parallel reality, which as Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) explains, differs from the rest in that the Nazi’s won World War II.  There’s another big difference as well– the heroes viewers know are villains there.  Not only will the stars of ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’ have to take on a massive army of stormtroopers, but Dark versions of Green Arrow, The Flash (Cavanaugh) and Supergirl, known here as Overgirl.

The ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ crossover unites the most live action superheroes in one place that anyone has ever seen outside of a comic book convention.  From ‘Team Arrow’ we have Oliver/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog  (Rick Gonzalez), Dinah Drake/Black Canary (Juliana Karkavy), and Curtis Holt/Mister Terrific (Echo Kellum).  ‘Team Flash’ is represented by Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin), Iris West (Candice Patton), Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Wally West/Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes), Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh).  Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) brings along her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) and a version of Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan).  And last but certainly not least, come the ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz), Ray Palmer/The Atom (Brandon Routh), Mick Rory/Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh)/Firestorm, Amaya Jiwe/Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Hank Heywood/Steel (Nick Zano) and new recruit Zari Tomez (Tala Ashe).  Wentworth Miller returns as Leonard Snart, but the Earth-X version, who calls himself Citizen Cold.  The crossover introduces Earth-X’s hero Ray Terrill/The Ray (Russell Tovey).

‘Crisis On Earth-X’ kicks off on Monday night, November 27 on The CW, with ‘Supergirl’ at 8pm EST, followed by ‘Arrow’ on a special night.  The crossover event concludes with ‘The Flash’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ on Tuesday night, November 28, also starting at 8pm.
