Flash “Elseworlds” Teaser

The first teaser for the upcoming CW crossover debuted last night, and gives us a hint about what’s gone terribly wrong for the heroes. Check it out below.

The “Elseworlds” crossover runs from December 9th to 11th, and includes episodes of The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl (in that order, so the timeslots are a bit different). Mark the dates on your calendar!

Arrowverse Crossover Villain: Dr. John Deegan of Arkham Asylum

The December 2018 crossover between Arrow, Flash and Supergirl will focus on Gotham City (it’s not clear which universe, but I’d guess Supergirl’s), feature Superman and the Flash together, and introduce both Batwoman and Lois Lane.

Now we have a villain: Jeremy Davies will be playing Dr. John Deegan of Arkham Asylum, who “might just be crazier than the inmates he treats.”

He sounds like a new character.

But I wonder if he’s an adaptation of Doctor Destiny, aka John Dee?

Good casting in either case!

Flash #21 Preview

The four-part crossover “The Button” continues this week in Flash #21, and you can see the preview up at The Beat. There are a whole lot of easter eggs to be seen here, and it features the return of a long-missed standby from the Flashverse.

Check out the preview at the link, and let us know what you think about it. What do you hope to see in the remaining three issues of the story arc?

Full “Duet” Trailer

Here’s the extended trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Duet”. It’s the big musical crossover episode with the Music Meister (Darren Criss) and the cast of Supergirl, with guest appearances by Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber). All are accomplished singers, of course.

Abra Kadabra Cast In The Show, And More

As reported by the official DC blog, actor David Dastmalchian has been cast to play Abra Kadabra on The Flash TV series. He’ll apparently be appearing before the season’s over, which is interesting (I’ve long had a theory that H.R. Wells is Kadabra in disguise, but we’ll see). He’s described as “a criminal from a distant future whose advanced technological powers seem like magic, the time-traveling Abra Kadabra holds a secret the Flash will stop at nothing to uncover”. So it sounds like he may be fairly faithful to the comics.

Dastmalchian has appeared in other DC media before; he’s appeared on Gotham and had a small role in The Dark Knight.

We also know that Mirror Master and the Top will return in a few episodes, as of episode 19. That episode is currently filming right now, and is being directed by long-time cast member Tom Cavanagh.

And the CW has released the first teaser for the upcoming Flash-Supergirl crossover, titled “Duet”. It will air March 21st.

“Duet” Synopsis (Flash Musical Episode)

The CW has released the official synopsis for the FlashSupergirl musical crossover, titled “Duet”. The episode will air on March 21st, with apparently a bit of a prologue on Supergirl the night before.

DARREN CRISS (“GLEE”) GUEST STARS AS THE MUSIC MEISTER IN THE FLASH AND SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CROSSOVER – Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing (#317). Original airdate 3/21/2017.
