The epic Arrowverse crossover we’ve all been waiting for is nearly upon us, and to whet our appetite for the special two-night event, The CW has unleashed a new extended trailer for “Crisis on Earth-X” teasing the dark history of the 53rd Earth.

DC TV's fourth annual crossover event promises to be larger in scope than 2016’s “Invasion!” by boasting an even bigger superhero lineup than last year, as well as their alt-universe villainous counterparts. “Crisis on Earth-X” will also introduce us to the CW Seed’s gay superhero The Ray, played by Being Human’s Russell Tovey, and feature a heroic new version of Captain Cold known as Citizen Cold (Wentworth Miller).

The promo starts off with Harry Wells (Tom Cavanagh) explaining that “there’s a 53rd Earth called Earth-X. Basically our Earth with one difference: The Nazis won the war.” And they have a Doomsday weapon. Uh-oh.

It's up to The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), and White Canary (Caity Lotz) to lead their respective teams and take on the Nazi versions of Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh), Green Arrow (Amell), Overgirl (Benoist), Red Tornado, Metallo, and Prometheus-X as well as an army of Nazis when the Earth-X villains crash Barry (Gustin) and Iris’ (Candice Patton) wedding next week:

 

“Crisis on Earth-X” will air on The CW over two nights, kicking off on Nov. 27 with Supergirl followed by Arrow (airing on a special night) and concluding with regularly scheduled episodes of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow the following night on Nov. 28.
