Russell Tovey Joins The Arrowverse As The Ray

Quantico vet Russell Tovey has joined the ranks of DC's ever expanding Arrowverse.

Tovey has been tapped to play The Ray in the upcoming four-part DC TV crossover event this coming November - which will see the villains of Earth X attack the heroes of our world. Tovey will also voice the heroic character in the upcoming CW Seed animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray.

The official character description for The Ray is as follows:

Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.

The character first appeared in 1973, but the show's version will more closely resemble the hero seen in DC’s Multiversity series. Freedom Fighters: The Ray will debut on The CW’s digital channel later this year. Fans will meet the new hero during the four-part DC TV crossover airing Monday, November 27th and Tuesday, November 28th.

DC TV Crossover Heading To Earth X

Warner Bros. has finally revealed details about this year's four-part DC TV Crossover.

The heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow and Supergirl are teaming up for Crisis On Earth X, which will see the villains of an alternate world arriving on Earth Prime while our heroes are attending the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West.

"We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids," executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg said in a recent statement.

In celebration of the two-night event, Phil Jimenez was commissioned to create a custom cover for the highly anticipated event, which can be seen below...

"Some of the first DC Comics I ever read were those insane crossovers with a dozen characters from alternate earths and dimensions — the kind of stuff I later became known for!" said Jimenez. "So when CW asked me to do an homage cover inspired by those amazing team-up covers, I couldn’t resist the chance to draw all of The CW’s DC superheroes in one crazy action sequence."

The four-episode event airs Monday, November 27th and Tuesday, November 28th.

For this crossover event, Arrow will air on a special night Monday at 9pm ET following Supergirl, while the other DC shows will remain in their regularly scheduled time slots.
