CW Mega-Crossover Teaser

The CW has released a teaser for the upcoming four-way crossover episodes, which will air in a few weeks. This seems to just be a taste of the story, and hopefully we’ll be seeing more soon. As you may recall, the crossover is titled “Invasion!”, and will feature the Dominators from the comics arc of the same name. The television version will feature Supergirl, the Flash, the Green Arrow, and the Legends, so there’ll be a lot of people involved, just like in the original story.

What do you think of this quick glimpse? Are you looking forward to the crossover? Feel free to share your thoughts!

“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!

DCTV Fall 2016 Premiere Dates

The CW has announced their premiere dates for Fall 2016, including their four DC superhero TV shows. Rather than launching them all the same week, they’re splitting them across two.

Tuesday. October 4:

The Flash season three premiere

Wednesday, October 5:

Arrow season five premiere

Monday, October 10:

Supergirl season two premiere

Thursday, October 13:

Legends of Tomorrow season two premiere

All four shows run from 8:00-9:00pm.

Seeing them all on the schedule as a regular block of programming really brings home the size of the TV universe that DC has been building. Even if Supergirl stays a separate universe (though fans have speculated that Barry’s time travel antics could result in merging the realities after the inevitable Flashpoint-inspired story arc), it’s connected to the other shows in tone, producers, and of course the fact that it’s already crossed over with The Flash. That four-way mega-crossover they’re planning seems a bit more real now!

Four-Way CW Crossover Coming in December

The CW has announced a mega-crossover between The Flash, Arrow, Legends Of Tomorrow, and Supergirl in December. There are no details about the story or schedule yet (it’s obviously a long way away), but it should be fun and will expand the CW’s DC universe. It’d be nice if they could bring back John Constantine again too, although that might be a little trickier given its cancellation and rights belonging to a different network.

Newsarama reports that the CW will be airing Supergirl in the Monday 8-9 PM timeslot, so fortunately nothing changes schedule-wise for that show.

Are you intrigued by the crossover? What would you like to see in it?

The Flash Renewed for Season 3

Not that this will surprise anyone, but the CW has officially renewed “The Flash” for a third season!

CW actually renewed their entire slate, from new shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” to double-digit veteran “Supernatural.” That means we’re also getting a fifth season of “Arrow,” a third season of “iZombie,” and a second season of “Legends of Tomorrow.” Add in CBS renewing Supergirl for a second season, and it’s clear DC Entertainment has had another successful year of TV shows! (No word yet on renewals for Gotham or Lucifer, but they seem safe.)

“Flash” and “Arrow” were safe bets for renewal, but there’s been discussion as to whether “Legends of Tomorrow” can keep up the scale of the crazy sci-fi adventure on an ongoing basis. I’ve been worried about “iZombie” because it reminds me so much of “Pushing Daisies,” which barely squeaked into half a second season, and I’m thrilled that they’ll be continuing for a third year!

So…after the Flash stops Zoom at the end of this season, what super-speed feats, adventures, guest stars and threats do you want to see in season three?
