The Crisis on Earth-X crossover event is coming your way starting on Monday, November 27, and it is bringing all four superhero shows on The CW together: Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. It’s going to be romantic, but it’s also going to be fun and will feature some surprise arrivals and some big reveals.
Rather than introduce some individual synopses for different episodes of the crossover, The CW has released one that stretches from one episode of the show to the next. CarterMatt has that synopsis for you to look at below:
THE EPIC FOUR-WAY CROSSOVER WITH “ARROW,” “SUPERGIRL,” “THE FLASH” AND “DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW” BEGINS – Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) and Iris’s (guest star Candice Patton) wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), The Ray (guest star Russell Tovey), Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards), Iris West and Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz) – lead their teams into battle to save the world.
So what is Earth-X? It is an alternate reality in which the Nazis were successful in conquering the world in the comics, and it’s one where many of our heroes could now be villains. What is also so interesting here is the utterance of the name “Citizen Cold,” a version of Leonard Snart from an alternate reality who is very much different than the one these people have come to know. We know that Miller is leaving behind the role of Snart after some of the episodes he’s been filming recently, so this could be one of his final appearances.
From a Supergirl angle, isn’t it nice to see Alex Danvers is actually getting a chance to be a part of a crossover for a change?
The elephant in the room
Obviously, the horrible allegations against Arrow-verse executive producer Andrew Kreisberg do put a pall over the crossover and the excitement we have for it; yet, we remember that there are hundreds of other people who work on these shows who put their hearts and souls into it and aren’t being accused of sexual misconduct. The stories and these characters are still worthy of attention; we can condemn the actions that he is accused of and then celebrate the work of some of the actors, writers, and crew members. That’s going to be our objective in the immediate future.
