As the time for this year’s The CW superhero crossover draws near, the official synopsis of ‘Crisis on Earth-X’ has been released. Let’s find out about the threat that brings our heroes together for the second time!

The CW has opted to release a longer synopsis for the event instead of individual ones for each series involved in ‘Crisis on Earth-X.’ The upcoming four-part event will see the cast from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow working together to save the different realities.

THE EPIC FOUR-WAY CROSSOVER WITH “ARROW,” “SUPERGIRL,” “THE FLASH” AND “DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW” BEGINS — Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) and Iris’s (guest star Candice Patton) wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), The Ray (guest star Russell Tovey), Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards), Iris West and Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz) – lead their teams into battle to save the world. Larry Teng directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller.

So, according to the released synopsis, a group of villains (think Nazi-esque) from another dimension attack our heroes during Barry and Iris’ wedding. The upcoming event will show Wentworth Miller playing Citizen Cold (the heroic version of Captain Cold). Wentworth recently announced his exit from the Arrowverse.

We’ll also get to see the live-action debut of The Ray, a gay superhero who’ll be played by out actor Russell Tovey.
