Tonight marks as the proper kick-off for the 4-show crossover between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow as they take on the DC Comics villains, Dominators. While we will be seeing plenty of them throughout the week, the crossover will not be the only place where will you get to see the Dominators. In a recent Q&A, Comic Book Resources chatted with executive producer and show-runner of all the shows, Andrew Kreisberg, who revealed that Season 2 of Supergirl will feature the Dominators:
“This is not the last you’ve seen of The Dominators. The Dominators will return on ‘Supergirl’ later this season.”
It is only fitting as Martian Manhunter, one of the main characters on the Girl of Steel’s show, played a large role in the “Invasion!” storyline in the comics. Seeing as J’onn J’onzz won’t be appearing in the crossover, at least he will later on in Season 2. It remains to be seen if the Dominators on Kara’s Earth are any different from the Earth-1 version.
