The ever expanding Arrowverse is currently preparing for its biggest crossover event yet, which will see the Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl and the Legends Of Tomorrow team up to tackle a challenge greater than anything any of them could handle on their own, and The Flash’s official Twitter account has now revealed the name of this challenge.

Marc Guggenheim, executive producer of both Arrow and Legends, released a statement explaining who these Dominators are:
“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Super-Heroes. We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”
Though it has not yet been revealed when the crossover will air, it is confirmed to consist of four parts, each of which will be shown on one of the Arrowverse shows.
The Flash Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, October 4, Arrow Season 5 premieres on Wednesday, October 5, Supergirl Season 2 premieres on Monday, October 10 and Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 premieres on Thursday, October 13, all respectively at 8/7c on The CW.
