When Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and the Legends of Tomorrow crossover, they will be taking on the Dominators from the DC Comics Invasion! mini-series.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim recently spoke with and offered the following details. Regarding the DC Invasion! comic, I just read it and felt it was so-so. The set up was great with the first issue, but it sort of got a bit dull (depending on what you were looking for). I am guessing it actually will be a bit more epic on TV with all four series involved.

Here's what Guggenheim had to say about the "most ambitious" crossover yet:

“I will say that [the Dominators] goal is very closely related to what was established in the comics, and it does have to do with metahumans. It’s very, very faithful to the comics."

On differences between last year's crossover and this one:

“I think it’s massively different. The first crossover we did was two separate storylines that had a slight tangential connection to each other. Then last year, the crossover we did was a two-parter that told one complete story with a beginning, middle, and end across Flash and Arrow, but it also had the work of setting up Legends of Tomorrow.”

On this year's crossover:

“This year, we’re doing by far the most ambitious crossover we’ve ever done. It’s basically a huge three-part story that also brings in Supergirl, so it’s crossing over all four shows. It’s telling one big epic movie of a story. It’s not setting up any other spin-offs, it’s just big, bombastic, huge action. There’s also some really poignant character moments. There’s a lot of plot lines, particularly I would say in Flash and Legends, that come to fruition in the crossover. It’s by far the most ambitious thing we’ve ever attempted. I want to say it’s by far one of the most ambitious things anyone in network television has ever attempted. It’s completely insane.”

Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl the Legends of Tomorrow crossover is expected to start in November.
