DC Entertainment and The CW have announced that the alien race The Dominators will be the villains of the four-part CW superhero crossover coming in December.
The crossover brings together the shows “Supergirl,” “The Flash,” “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” with characters from each popping up in the other shows. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains the antagonists of the event to Zap2It:
“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.”
In the comics, The Dominators are a sinister, technologically advanced alien race who decide to wipe out Earth after considering super-powered people the heralding of an evolutionary jump that will make humans genetically superior.
The network has also released their Superhero Fight Club 2.0 trailer, following on from the tradition of last year. The full clip is viewable on The CW App and a tease of it can be seen below:
