In a statement to DC Comics, Marc Guggenheim, show-runner and executive producer of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, said the following about their role in the crossover.
“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.”
The Flash Season 3 premieres on Tuesday October 4, Arrow Season 5 premieres on Wednesday, October 5, Supergirl Season 2 premieres on Monday, October 10 and Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 premieres on Thursday, October 13, all respectively at 8/7c on The CW.
