New Legends Of Tomorrow VFX Video Shows How The “Invasion!” Crossover Came To Life


If you kept up with DC TV happenings over the past year, then it’s hard to imagine that you’d forget the four-way crossover that went down last fall that brought together SupergirlThe FlashArrow and Legends of Tomorrow. And while I personally didn’t think it was executed as well as the previous year’s that saw Vandal Savage serve as the primary antagonist, it was pretty difficult not to enjoy seeing the collective heroes occupying the Arrowverse coming together in order to combat the Dominator menace.

Surprisingly, news pertaining to “Invasion!” isn’t entirely behind us as Deluxe’s Encore, the VFX team supervised by Armen Kevorkian, have released a pretty cool video via their YouTube page that gives us insight into the process that brought the action-packed climax to life. Seeing as how the donnybrook broke out on Legends, which served as the finale to the crossover, they had quite the roster to work with.

What I found to be particularly amusing was seeing the stand-ins for the Dominators before their CGI renderings were added in. Needless to say, guys clad in body stockings aren’t as scary as grotesque aliens – or are they? Come to think of it, this may be something the producers will want to consider when pondering baddies to include in season 3.

Anyway, with visual effects seamlessly blending with the practical these days, it’s becoming exceedingly difficult to distinguish what’s real and what’s not. Thanks to the video, however, we get to see what was what throughout the course of the episode, thus becoming a real treat to a layman such as myself.

Legends of Tomorrow returns for its third season on Tuesday, October 10 on The CW. Will you be tuning in? Let us know below!
