After months of teasing and rumors, The CW has announced the concept for this year’s 4-part DC TV crossover; “Crisis on Earth X!” Fans from DC comics are well familiar with the “Crisis” series that DC has ran over the years.

The Story Behind the Crossover
Executive producers Marc Guggenheim & Andrew Kreisberg has this to say about the direction for the new crossover: “We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids. Phil was the perfect choice to bring the comic book cover iteration of this idea to life. You can count on one hand the number of artists who could compellingly represent so many characters in a single image. Phil is one of them. And his design invokes the cover of Justice League #207, which was the 20th Annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our ten year-old selves are in heaven.”
Here is the official synopsis for the crossover:
The crossover is officially described as follows: “With all of the heroes in town to celebrate Barry and Iris’s wedding, villains from Earth-X crash the festivities with a deadly agenda.”
Supergirl will kick off the crossover event on November 27 during its usual 8 PM time slot, with Arrow at 9 PM that same Monday night. The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will follow the first two episodes of the crossover on Tuesday, November 28 at 8 PM ET and 9 PM ET, respectively.
