The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that The CW's next big Arrowverse crossover will see Gotham and its heroine, Batwoman, coming to the show.
Check out Wally West all suited and booted.
Superman returns to TV.
Is it a bird is it a plane? Is it another tired reference that most people under a certain age won't get? No... It's Superman! Or is it Supergirl?
The answers we've been waiting for as to the truth behind Zoom's identity, Jay Garrick and Hunter Zolomon, finally arrive this week as The Flash takes the fight directly to him. It uhh, kind of ended up being a mistake on their part.
With the Time Master's bounty hunter Chronos boarding the Waverider and forcing Rip to leave Kendra, Ray, and Sara behind in 1958, enough setup was laid for en effective second part installment. In turn we got more than that, and perhaps the most well-rounded installment of Legends of Tomorrow yet, as the creators dove deep into the concepts of characters having their own personal timelines, and what happens when these get displaced from their allies.
From the instant Laurel said "One last time" before suiting up as the Black Canary it was all but confirmed that she was toast. Especially after the opportunity for her to finally become the DA, something she was striving for ever since the first season of the show. Having this grand emotional dilemma between choosing to pursue her career as Laurel Lance or her career as the Black Canary appear completely out of the blue didn't help her chances either. With the flashback involving Ollie missing her as his "home" on Earth, this was truly the end of her tale. And so she was buried, as were the dreams of any comic fan hoping to actually see the Green Arrow and Black Canary as the ultimate superhero couple. Goddamnit.
Even cyber criminals who aren't sent to jail are put under internet probation where they literally are not allowed to access anything online, so the concept that Brie Larven is able to hack her prison files to expedite her release is laughable in so many ways. But so is this entire villain. And this entire show episode.
Ok, hot damn. The instant the premise of this episode was announced, I figured "There's just no way. They're gonna muck it up. It can't actually be that awesome." and yet here I am. Knowing that the only way to gain the speed needed to defeat Zoom is to master the science of the Speed Force, The Flash sets out to learn the secrets of his old mentor: Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash.
Coming back from hiatus in a big way, The Flash dealt with the ramifications of learning Zoom's true identity while also fighting to stop a new speedster. What could have just been another "Rogue of the week" installment actually brought with it some interesting developments for the STAR Labs crew.
Oh boy, Arrow. What are we going to do with you. Returning from hiatus after an excellent episode featuring a fully fledged superhero team up between Green Arrow and Vixen against the formidable odds of Damien Darkh that oh-so-unfortunately ended on a really lame note, decided to follow through almost completely on that note.
Not going to lie, I had to double check and make sure I wasn't watching Supernatural based off the first minute or two. In order to regain the advantage of surprise on Vandal Savage, Rip and his team of Legends travels further back in time to 1958, where they find the immortal madman living a peaceful life as a doctor at a psych ward. Oh, and experimenting on punks in the town and turning them into alien vampires. Can't forget that.
With a fellow Time Master in distress and no more leads on Vandal Savage, Rip Hunter and his team of Legends deal with brigands, pirates, and mutiny aboard their own ship.
Taking full advantage of its time-traveling capabilities and the years of world building put into The CW's DC universe, Legends of Tomorrow brought us to a dystopian version of Star City 30 years into the future. A world where the Green Arrow is dead and Deathtroke has come back with a vengeance to tear the city to pieces and throw it into complete chaos.
After three years of build-up, the revelation of Oliver's secret son William blew up into a fantastically busy episode of Arrow, that also managed to be a mini-crossover with The CW's animated series Vixen. With no other options available, Team Arrow had to use everything at their disposal to come at Damien Darkh and save William.
