In the Arrowverse, Earth-X is a world where Germany won World War II and Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl are evil. It was first referenced in the Supergirl episode Worlds Finest. The crossover plot is set to revolve around the heroes facing their own evil versions from Earth-X, a world where the Nazis won World War II.
Leaked set photos have revealed that actor Tom Cavanagh will appear as the Earth X's Flash aka The Reverse Flash, and Arrow's villain Prometheus from Earth-X will appear in the crossover.
The event will set up a new animated web series, Freedom Fighters: The Ray which is set to premiere on CW Seed in 2017, and will be set within the shared Arrow multiverse.
Arrowverse executive producers on the event
Executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg opened up about the event to Deadline. "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. 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 ofJustice League #207, which was the 20th annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our 10-year-old selves are in heaven," the executive producer was quoted as saying by Deadline.
