Last week we learned Barry Allen and Iris West would finally get married in the upcoming season of The Flash, but we knew not of when the blessed event would occur. Now we have the answer — their wedding ceremony is the centerpiece of the Super Duper Superhero Crossover Special this November.
It’s titled “Crisis On Earth-X,” and it would appear to be based on Crisis On Infinite Earths in title only — the crisis involves only one Earth, and it happens to be one where all the superheroes are evil. Now they’ve come to our dimension to crash the wedding, ’cause that’s what bad guys do! Presumably there’s more to their plan than that, but we only just found out about it today.
The CW is keeping mum on plot specifics beyond what the second paragraph told you, but did they share this neat poster drawn by Phil Jimenez. It’s our first look at the Evil Counterparts’ costumes. Supegirl’s in particular looks way out there:
As the poster says, you can expect this event to take place at the tail end of November, the 27th and 28th, 2017. The four currently running Berlanti superhero shows — Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl — will cross over much like they did for “Invasion” last year.
