Details On Arrowverse 2 Night Crossover/The Ray Cast

Yup, we've finally got some details on the CW's DC Arrowverse four show/two night crossover and it sounds even better than last year's Invasion!

Titled Crisis On Earth X (I assume this is for all four episodes), the two night crossover which will start in Supergirl before continuing into Arrow, The Flash and concluding in Legends Of Tomorrow, will centre on the upcoming wedding between Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Iris West (Candice Patton) but it seems that the Earth X version of Barry along with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Kara Zor El (Melissa Benoist) will also be appearing as the four shows and their main players band together to stop the villains from Earth X, who decide to crash the wedding while having their own deadly agenda.

Joining the cast for this crossover event will be Russell Tovey. The actor who has recently appeared in both Looking and Quantico has been cast in the role of gay superhero/reporter, The Ray/Raymond Terril. The character also set to appear in his own upcoming animated series, Freedom Fighters: The Ray on the CWSeed, which has yet to be given a release date. I was really hoping that the CW would cast an openly gay actor for this particular role and Tovey's casting is absolutely sublime. I just hope this won't be the only time we see The Ray in live action though.

Press Release:

The Crisis On Earth X crossover event will air on the CW from November 27th and 28th. UK viewers should get it shortly after on Sky1. I'm hoping a release date for Freedom Fighters: The Ray is imminent too.
