Why Legends Of Tomorrow Is The Perfect Place To End The 4-Show Crossover
The CW's superhero universe is bigger than ever this season, and the annual crossover extravaganza will include the modified Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl in addition to The Flash and Arrow. Judging by what we know of the four-night event so far, humankind will need all the heroes the network has to offer to combat the alien threat. CinemaBlend was recently able to speak with Legends of Tomorrow star Maisie Richardson-Sellers about what we can expect from Vixen and her fellow time travelers. When I asked about the big crossover, she shared this tantalizing tease:
We already knew that the crossover would include key players from Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, but there was no saying if one of the episodes would manage to feature them all at once. News that we'll get to see everybody (or at least most of the major players) fighting together means that we can expect to see superpowers, skills, technology, and magic simultaneously at work in a battle against the alien Dominators. If you ask me, the bad guys don't stand a chance.
Kara and Barry should have an easy edge thanks to their superpowers. An aggravated Oliver will probably have to use his whole quiver of trick arrows to fight the Dominators, while Sara and her bo staff should get quite a workout. Vixen could be the game-changer thanks to her magic, since she is the only superhero in The CW's DC lineup currently able to use magic, and it's possible that Vixen's powers are one thing that aliens from another world couldn't anticipate.
The crossover will start on Supergirl in its regular Monday night slot before moving to The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday, and it'll then come to what sounds like an epic climax on Legends of Tomorrow on Thursday. Those of us who tune in for all of it may need Friday as a day of rest to come down from all the action. This event will be the first time that shows other than Supergirl directly deal with aliens, so we should probably expect some comedy along with all the fighting. The Dominators may be an evil race bent on destruction, but that doesn't mean we can't get some laughs out of characters' reactions to them.
Maisie Richardson-Sellers is a veteran of sci fi and genre series, with projects like The Originals, Of Kings and Prophets, and Star Wars: The Force of Awakens to her name. Her excitement about the Legends of Tomorrow crossover conclusion has me excited about what's to come in the near future in The CW's DC universe. I'm definitely looking forward to a melee of magic, superpowers, skills, and technology when the four superhero shows come together.
The big crossover kicks off on Monday, November 28 at 8 p.m. ET with Supergirl and comes to an end on Thursday, December 1 at 8 p.m. ET with Legends of Tomorrow. You can catch Maisie Richardson-Sellers' Vixen and her time-traveling pals heading to the Wild West in the next episode of Legends on November 17.
