This four part crossover looks to be epic on many scales. One thing that I was personally looking forward to see was gay actor and SUPERMAN cutie, Russell Tovey play gay superhero, Raymond Terrell aka THE Ray. No full body shot yet, but we see him with his uniform and with and without his helmet. We also see him wearing Nazi concentration camp clothing with an upside down Pink Triangle. That is very powerful to see in a superhero tv show. Especially seeing a gay man, playing a gay character wearing it. In the Golden Age of Comic books, a lot of World War II was depicted with Nazis being beaten often, but concentration camps were generally not mentioned.
 

 

One thing to note about this crossover is that it will take place on an Earth that has been shown in animated format as being an Earth where Nazis won World War II. This could also be quite an emotional event for many people to watch as well. We will probably get to see some glimpses of the Nazi concentration camps as evidenced by Tovey’s character. So many forget that there were many minority groups that were sent to concentration camps in Europe, including many gay men. This is the origin of the Pink Triangle. It is scary to see Tovey wearing this but also very eye opening. Especially with what is being said by the survivors/escapees of the same type of camps currently in Chechnya.
 


The 4 Part Crossover event starts up on November 27 with Supergirl and then Arrow the directly afterwards. The next two parts conclude on Tuesday, November 28 with The Flash and directly followed by the Legends of Tomorrow. I will be watching with a lot of anticipation.
Here are a couple of the pics that have been released. There are many more, but these are some of the ones that particularly enjoyed.

Russell Tovey is going to play gay superhero, the Ray! I’m trying not to geekgasm…or is it just regular orgasm in this case? Just reported by Comic Book Resources, the Ray will be played by Midshipman Alonso Frame, aka Jason from the movie the Pass, and also known as openly gay actor Russell Tovey. I am so excited over this!!! Did I mention that Tovey is one of my biggest, most undeniable crushes on the planet?

Russell Tovey will also voice the Ray in the animated series set to stream on the CW Seed. There is not a lot of info on the appearance in the Arrowverse yet, except that it will be a 4 part cross over with the Ray’s Earth, which is Earth X. It will also be taking place over two nights, starting with Monday, Nov. 27, with Supergirl and Arrow and then Tuesday, Nov. 28, with The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
 

Have I mentioned that Tovey never seems to care about showing his ass on camera. A lot. He can’t possibly make me like him any more. I am very happy. What do you think?
