Arrowverse star Caity Lotz explained why she likes this year’s four-way crossover between “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” and “Legends of Tomorrow” better than 2016’s “Invasion!”

“I like this crossover better than last year’s crossover because there are a lot more normal, human things in it,” Lotz, who plays Sara Lance/White Canary, told TVLine. “It’s still pretty huge, it’s still pretty fantastical. But it’s more grounded in the characters.”

Fellow “Legends of Tomorrow” star Maisie Richardson-Sellers echoed Lotz’s sentiments. “One thing they did beautifully is there are lots of personal relationships woven into it as well,” Amaya’s portrayer said of this year’s crossover. “So it’s not just one big fight [between Arrowverse heroes and Earth-X Nazis]. You also get to know certain characters a lot deeper, and there’s some love in it, and there’s some loss in it. It’s a very emotional journey, as well as spectacular.”

Aside from seeing the heroes join forces to stop Earth-X villains from invading Earth-1, “Arrow” star Stephen Amell noted that the crossover will also develop the relationships between Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton), Oliver (Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), and Stein (Victor Garber) and Jax (Franz Drameh). “There are some through-line storylines [in the crossover] like Oliver and Felicity’s relationship, and Barry and Iris’ relationship, and what’s going on with Sara, what’s going on with Victor and Franz,” Amell said (via

Surprisingly, the Legends are the ones who will be bringing the waterworks in the crossover. “You’ll be most surprised that ‘Legends’ is capable of making our audience cry,” “Legends of Tomorrow” executive producer Phil Klemmer told The Hollywood Reporter. “I thought last season really leaned into the comedy, and that Season 3 we tripled down on that. There’s some ludicrous moments. Things get bananas, and yet in this crossover, we have this thing that happens that will honestly move you to tears.”

This year’s crossover, titled “Crisis on Earth-X,” airs across two nights. It begins with “Supergirl” and “Arrow” on Monday, Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. EST, and ends with “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
