Arrowverse Crossover 2017: First Look At Earth-X Nazis [PHOTO].

A couple of Earth-X Nazis were spotted on the Vancouver set of this year's four-way crossover between "Arrow," "The Flash," 'Supergirl" and "Legends of Tomorrow."

According to (http://yvrshoots.com/2017/10/dc-crossover-earth-x-nazis-in-vancouver-for-arrow-the-flash-legends-of-tomorrow-supergirl-crossover.html) YVR Shoots , the Arrowverse cast and crew are currently filming the "Arrow" installment of the crossover. On Wednesday, actors and members of the production team were at a blacked-out set in the vast parking lot of the former Canada Post Building. While no big stars were spotted on location, YVR Shoots managed to take some photos of actors playing Earth-X Nazis.

According to the (http://deadline.com/2017/09/cw-dc-superhero-crossover-arrow-the-flash-supergirl-legends-of-tomorrow-1202175158/) official logline for the crossover, entitled "Crisis on Earth-X," all of the superheroes come to Central City for Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris' (Candice Patton) wedding. However, villains from Earth-X crash the festivities with a deadly agenda.

Earth-X is a parallel Earth where Nazi Germany - not the Allied Forces - won the World War II. On this Earth, Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl are all evil. Based on the custom6made (http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/styles/embed/public/2017/09/22/crisis-earth-x-key-art.jpg) poster for the crossover, it seems that Barry, Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) will all be facing off against their evil doppelgangers.

The crossover will also mark the live-action debut of gay superhero The Ray, which will be played by Russell Tovey. The British actor will also voice the character in CW Seed's upcoming animated series "Freedom Fighters: The Ray."

According to the (http://tvline.com/2017/09/22/russell-tovey-the-ray-arrow-crossover-cast-gay/) official description of the character, Raymond "Ray" Terrill was a reporter who found out about a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before Ray could report on his discovery, the project leader exposed him to a "genetic light bomb." Fortunately, the bomb didn't kill Ray, and instead gifted him with light-based powers. With these new abilities, Ray realized he could take action to help stop injustice. Calling himself The Ray, he teamed up with Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters in fighting violence and oppression wherever it exists.

The crossover will air 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.
