The moment Flash and Supergirl fans learned the two would share a musical crossover in 2017, Neil Patrick Harris’ Music Meister was put forth as a potential villain. We don’t yet know exactly which star will test the pipes of Barry and Kara, but whoever they are will indeed do so as The Music Meister, producers confirm.

Lest you think the reign of the Super-s at The CW was anywhere close to ending, the network passed out a generous round of renewals on Sunday, Not only is the DC foursome of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends renewed for new seasons, but so too will Supernatural return, among others.
Constantine fans got another return to form with news that Matt Ryan would reprise his NBC role for the upcoming Justice League Dark, but that was only a trial run. The demon-fighting detective (and his live-action voice) will return as an animated CW Seed series, the first photo of which is already here!
Supergirl has skewed a bit more traditional with its adaptation of famous DC characters, but it was worth wondering how the series might tackle an impish trickster from the 5th Dimension. We may now know, as set photos appear to place Once Upon a Time star Peter Gadiot in the infamous role of Mister Mxyzptlk.
In what is surely the most glorious rumor of the week, the Blu-ray details for Marvel’s Doctor Strange have apparently leaked online, and among the special features listed is perhaps the most special of all — something titled “Team Thor: Part 2,” which appears to be a follow-up to the hilarious mockumentary short that debuted at last year’s Comic-Con. Marvel isn’t releasing the Blu-ray until February 28, which means our fingers are going to be pretty stiff from all the crossing they’ll be doing until then.
Kevin Smith will return to the DC TV-verse a third time for Supergirl’s 2017 premiere, and he’s brought Harley Quinn with him. Not that Harley Quinn, mind you, but his daughter, who forms the centerpiece of a new synopsis for our “Supergirl Lives” midseason premiere.
The first full trailer for Arrow’s 2017 return answered a big question about the winter cliffhanger, but Prometheus’ identity will continue to haunt us as Season 5 wears on.

We’ve seen NBC’s DC Comics comedy Powerless take a number of shapes since development, and if you caught some of the early pilot trailers, you’ll barely recognize the final product. Get a look at Wayne Security in a revamped premise trailer for Powerless, ahead of a February premiere.
The latest chapter in the ongoing saga of CBS and Paramount’s efforts to sue the Spock ears off of the producers of Star Trek fan film Axanar continues today, with a new development from the Los Angeles federal court system. This hullabaloo began back in December of 2015, when copyright-holding studios CBS and Paramount got wind that a fellow by the name of Alec Peters had raised nearly a million dollars (that figure is now well over a million) for an independent film project taking place in the Star Trek universe. Because studio executives did not remember selling the creative rights to Mr. Peters, they did the reasonable thing and hauled him into court, claiming the man had infringed on ‘thousands’ of copyrights. In March, Paramount tightened their case up, specifically naming the most heinous violations contained within Axanar, and come June, Paramount released a list of 10 guidelines that fan enthusiasts crafting their own homemade spinoffs can follow to avoid legal action.
The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln promised a much more satisfying back half to Season 7 than those punishing first eight installments, but is any hope to be found in the latest cache of cryptic photos?
