After last year’s cool but misleading CW crossover series, this year, everything is going to be bigger than last year. CW and Warner Bros announced on Friday the title of the new four-episode crossover event, Crisis on Earth-X. Unlike last year, Crisis on Earth-X will take place over two nights. This will allow for a two-hour, two-night binge feast. It begins on Monday, November 27 and concludes on Tuesday, November 28.
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.”
In commemoration of the crossover event, they commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez to create a comic book style artwork for the event.
“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,” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg said. “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.”
The Twitterverse has gone crazy with teases about the crossover event. Stephen Amell took to his Twitter page to tease his followers. Noting that they are in Day 3 of the crossover filming.

Last year was a letdown given that Supergirl was being teased as part of the crossover event. Unfortunately, the episode only involved a couple minutes at the end. It was reported that the crossover event last year, the Arrowverse team had no firm decision if Supergirl was moving over to the CW. Hopefully, this year, they will make that right with fans.
The shows are all set to return to the network the week of October 9, kicking off with Supergirl at 8 PM that Monday. Tuesday, October 10th will see the Season 4 premiere of The Flash followed by the Season 3 premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Fnally, Arrow shifts to a new date and time and will premiere its sixth season on Thursday, October 12 at 9 PM.
