CW Crossover Synopsis

The CW has released the official synopsis for the upcoming four-way crossover, which will air on November 27th and 28th. There will be four episodes, although they’ve only released one description for all four.

THE EPIC FOUR-WAY CROSSOVER WITH “ARROW,” “SUPERGIRL,” “THE FLASH” AND “DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW” BEGINS — Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) and Iris’s (guest star Candice Patton) wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), The Ray (guest star Russell Tovey), Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards), Iris West and Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz) – lead their teams into battle to save the world.

Comicbook.com states that the Arrow episode is Part Two, and will air at 9 PM on Monday, November 27th to accomodate this (the show usually airs on Thursdays, so it’s worth remembering). Part One is on Supergirl at 8 PM on November 27th, and the remaining two parts will be shown with The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow on November 28th.

First Look At This Season’s CW Crossover

First off, a note that much of what’s in this post is very spoilery, particularly for The Flash and Arrow.

The CW has released an official teaser image for the upcoming season’s mega crossover, and it’s a doozy. It seemingly features a wedding between Barry and Iris, a conflict with another Earth we’ve never seen before, the introduction of The Ray, the return of Captain Cold (wearing his comicsverse visor, no less), and of course a massive team-up between a lot of different shows. We’ll be seeing the heroes’ evil doppelgangers of Earth-X, and this image also tells us a few of the people who survived the explosion in the season finale of Arrow.

The image is apparently by well-known comics artist Phil Jimenez. He brings an appropriately comic book aesthetic to the piece, which is fitting and nice to see.

The Ray will be starring in his own CW Seed series, but I didn’t expect him to be crossing over in live action too. He’ll be played in live action and voiced in the animated series by Russell Tovey.

So this is a lot to take in, and seems pretty epic! Who’s looking forward to the crossover, and what do you find most (or least) intriguing about it? Share your thoughts here.

“Duet” – Review of S3 Ep17 of THE FLASH

The casts of THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL are filled with exceptionally talented people – and in this musical crossover episode we get a chance to see many of them at their absolute finest.  How does “Duet” fare? It’s a bit uneven, but with some exceptional moments…and a song that may become the official “Barry and Iris” anthem. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

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.
