The Dominators Set As Villains For CW’s Crossover Event

This year The CW’s mega-crossover event will feature The Dominators as the main villains set to take on the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. The four-episode event will be the network’s biggest crossover event in history.

In an interview with THR, Marc Guggenengheim said:

“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 Superheroes. 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.”

It sounds promising but time will tell whether or not the producers were able to achieve film-quality effects on a television budget.

For those unfamiliar with The Dominators, they are an alien race who are interested in the genetic potential of the human race. Specifically, the metagene, which is the fictional gene that changes one from a human to a metahuman.

The Flash season three premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m., Arrow season five premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m., Supergirl season two premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. and Legends of Tomorrow season two premieres Thursday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
