With the success of "It" in the box office and lots of fans talking about "Pennywise the Dancing Clown", it was only a matter of time until one fan decided that a certain Dark Knight should face off against "It" - and here comes YouTube user Adeel of Steel mashing "Batman v Superman" and Ben Affleck's scenes as Batman with the 2017 movie adaptation of Stephen King's "It" - to present the DCEU's version of the Caped Crusader against the supernatural force that preys on children and takes on the appearance of a clown - something that Bats hate in Gotham City.
Finally revealing what the plans are for this year's annual DC on the CW crossover is, a spectacular comic book cover poster was revealed by DC Entertainment and The CW to announced "Crisis on Earth-X" - the two-night special crossover event that will happen between Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl on November 27 and 28. Moving from its new Thursday timeslot, Arrow will be the headliner show beginning the crossover with Supergirl continuing things on November 27th, while Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash finish things off on the 28th.
Evoking "Crisis on Infinite Earths" and the numerous DC crossover events, this is DC on the CW's biggest looking comic-esque crossover to date. While the plot is still shrouded in mystery, all that's known is that alternate evil versions of the heroes hailing from Earth-X, who crash the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West. Also appearing is The Ray, who is the star of a new animated series called "Freedom Fighters: The Ray" which will premiere on The CW.
With the cover drawn by Phil Jimenez, the producers of The CW's slate of DC shows told what inspired them to create this crossover (as posted on Comic Book.com)
“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," said executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim in a statement. "Phil was the perfect choice to bring the comic book cover iteration of this idea to life. You can count on one hand the number of artists who could compellingly represent so many characters in a single image. Phil is one of them. And his design invokes the cover of Justice League #207, which was the 20th Annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our ten year-old selves are in heaven.”
"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!" Jimenez said. "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 Super-Heroes in one crazy action sequence was insanely fun and exciting. And Romulo Fajardo'a colors brought everything to life!”

25 YEARS... That's a long time coming since Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski collaborated together to create one of the most faithful and influential shows to ever present DC Comics' iconic Dark Knight vigilante to the small screen. Yes folks, the 1992 original "Batman The Animated Series" is now 25 years old, and along with that baggage comes a lot of classic moments, iconic portrayals, and memorable episodes and firsts for a TV Series that gave us a pretty awesome cartoon Batman - one who was voiced by the ever talented Kevin Conroy who has earned the title of being the one and only "Voice of Batman".
While the show is known for a lot of great stories and depictions of Batman's life and rogues' gallery, BTAS also introduced a lot of firsts - including the creation of The Joker's on-and-off girlfriend and iconic villainess Harley Quinn - aka Dr. Harleen Quinzel. She would spin-off the show to become her own prominent presence in the pages of DC Comics, and eventually be featured in live action as well through 2016's DC Extended Universe film "Suicide Squad". What's more Star Wars' star Mark Hamill signed on to voice the Clown Prince of Crime himself in The Joker - a role originally considered for Tim Curry but went to the Luke Skywalker actor instead.

I personally always feel that the goodness of what we create interpersonally on a set flows into the quantum fabric of the film. I trust completely in this very esoteric understanding. Wonder Woman is very powerful, Aquaman is very badass — he’s got very strong and stubborn energy. Flash is a lot of fun and full of life and Cyborg is just a very smart and independent person. And we have some new vehicles that are really awesome, like the Flying Fox, it’s so big that it can transport the whole League and can carry a Batmobile.”
