black lightning series

DC Comics fans are getting inundated from all sides — the DC Extended Universe is going full-steam ahead with the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League movies this year, and The CW superhero universe (or the Arrowverse or the Berlanti-verse, whatever you like to call it) just keeps getting bigger.

Adding to their highly successful line-up of superhero shows, which already includes Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, The CW has picked up Black Lightning, based off the comic book starring one of DC’s first major African-American superheroes.

The Flash Supergirl

Last year there was a crossover between Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow. The crossover event, titled “Invasion!”, began with Supergirl and ended with Legends of Tomorrow, with The Flash and Arrow nice and comfy around the middle. The heroes teamed up to defeat the Dominators, but little of the action was featured in Supergirl, so it wasn’t the huge four-way crossover some fans were anticipating.

Below, learn why you should expect a bigger CW crossover next time.

legends of tomorrow

I haven’t been keeping up with The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow (there are only so many hours in a day!), but the news that a young George Lucas would be a character in the back half of season 2 is the kind of thing that makes me want to track down and utilize a some extra television time in my life. The episode, titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” aired last night as the second season’s winter premiere and executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained how this crazy idea to pass.

Legends of Tomorrow George Lucas episode

It’s not just Star Wars actors who get dramatically de-aged through Hollywood magic. Sometimes it happens to Star Wars creators, too. A young George Lucas will reportedly appear in an upcoming episode of Legends of Tomorrow, with a significant change in his early career proving to have drastic effects for all the Legends. In Lucas’ case, however, it won’t be CG wizardry that makes him young again — instead, the show has cast Sweet/Vicious actor Matt Angel to portray him.

Find out exactly what the Legends of Tomorrow George Lucas episode will be about below.  Read More »

The CW's Superhero Fight Club 2.0

After spending her debut season over on CBS, Supergirl is flying over to The CW this fall to join the rest of the network’s DC heroes. And that means it’s time for Kara to get inducted into one of the franchise’s burgeoning traditions, Superhero Fight Club.

The first Superhero Fight Club promo aired last year, pitting the heroes and villains of Arrow and The Flash against each other in an epic cage match. Now Superhero Fight Club 2.0 brings together characters from SupergirlArrowThe Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow for an even flashier, more high-tech battle. Last week’s teaser showed Supergirl getting sucked into the madness by Arrow and the Flash, and this week the full Superhero Fight Club 2.0 promo reveals what happened next. Watch it below.

Arrowverse crossover / CW Superhero Fight Club

The Arrowverse crossover has become something of an annual CW tradition, ever since Barry Allen made his first appearance on Arrow in 2013. Arrow and the the Flash reunited again when the latter got his own show in 2015, and last year the crossover expanded even further to include characters from the then-upcoming series Legends of Tomorrow. But this year’s crossover event promises to be the most ambitious one yet, bringing together the stars of ArrowThe FlashLegends of Tomorrow, and — for the first time — Supergirl.

Naturally, that raises the question of what could possibly occasion such a massive gathering of superheroes. After all, it seems safe to assume we won’t just be watching them commiserate over drinks. Today, the identity of the Arrowverse crossover villain has been revealed. And while there’s no footage from the actual event just yet, characters from all four shows have come together for an adorable “Superhero Fight Club 2.0” trailer from The CW. Check it out, and get details on the Arrowverse crossover, below.  Read More »

CW Seed The Ray

CW President Mark Pedowitz was very enthusiastic about picking up Supergirl from CBS when he spoke to the Television Critics Association this morning. However, he was also frank about the show’s prospects. The CW generally gets lower ratings than any of the big four networks, so Pedowitz does not expect to match even Supergirl’s lowest CBS ratings.

“There’s no question it probably will not do as well as it did on CBS, even at the end,” Pedowitz said. “But whatever it does, it’ll be either our number one or number two show this season. Look, if all six million people come, it’ll be our number one show and I’ll be dancing.”  Read More »

Legends of Tomorrow Supergirl

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returned to San Diego Comic-Con for their second season. We interviewed producers Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim in roundtable interviews, in which Klemmer revealed that season two will portray major historical figures on the time travel show.

“We will be doing these iconic historical moments with recognizable historical figures,” Klemmer said. “To me, we had little things like H.G. Wells and we had a little shoutout to Bill Gates at a certain point. Season two, you’re going to see the icons of the 20th century. You’re going to have those versions of the Forrest Gump kind of moments with our guys trying to fix history but at the same time getting to play a part in these recognizable eras.”  Read More »

The Flash Supergirl

It came as no huge surprise when CBS announced Supergirl would be flying over to The CW for its second season. The series has always seemed like it’d be more at home on The CW anyway, where it’d be surrounded by other DC dramas like ArrowThe Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. And now that Kara’s arrived, The CW is more than ready to bring her into the fold with the rest of its heroes.

The CW has announced Supergirl will be part of this fall’s annual CW DC crossover event, along with ArrowThe Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, making it the “biggest one ever.” And while it’s way too early for any footage from said crossover, The CW is eager to promote Supergirl as part of its growing superhero lineup. Watch the Supergirl The CW teaser announcement below.  Read More »
