“Magenta” Synopsis, and Superhero Fight Club!

The CW has posted this year’s Fight Club promo clip, although this one features the heroes rather than the villains we saw last year. It features Barry, Supergirl, the (Green) Arrow, and some members of the Legends Of Tomorrow in a group training session. Obviously it’s meant to welcome Supergirl into the CWverse fold!

And the official synopsis has been released for the third episode of The Flash. Titled “Magenta” (I think you can guess who’s in it), it’s due to air on October 18th.

“Magenta”— (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, LV) (HDTV)

EARTH-2 WELLS AND JESSE RETURN TO CENTRAL CITY — Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (guest star Violett Beane). Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth. He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers. Meanwhile, Magenta, (guest star Joey King) a new meta who can control metal, terrorizes the city. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Judalina Neira & David Kob (#303). Original airdate 10/18/2016.

It’ll be good to see the return of Earth-2 Harry and Jesse, and even better to see her in action as Jesse Quick! Who’s looking forward to it?

“Paradox” Official Stills, And Mega-Crossover Details

The CW has released the official still images from the second episode of the upcoming season, titled “Paradox”. They include our first look at Tom Felton’s character, Julian Dorn/Julian Albert, and a nice glimpse at Barry and Jay Garrick together. You can see the full batch of photos at Flash TV News.

Also, CBR has revealed the identity of the villains in the CW’s four-series crossover: they’ll be the Dominators, the alien race from DC’s Invasion! storyline. It’s a very ambitious goal, considering the aliens’ creepy and inhuman appearance, and showrunner Marc Guggenheim says “We’re using cutting-edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.” So it’ll be interesting to see how they pull it off. There’s no word thus far on what the Dominators will be doing in the episodes, but it’ll probably be big.

Excited for the crossover? What do you hope to see in it? How about the meeting between Barry and Earth-3’s Jay Garrick? Share your thoughts!
