It just wouldn’t be Mister Mxyzptlk without a trick up his sleeve, and the impish 5th-dimensional trickster couldn’t even wait for his own Supergirl episode to debut. The classic Superman villain put in a first appearance with “Luthors,” and now gets his own trailer with a first look at “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk.”
We’re still at least a month out from The Flash and Supergirl teaming up for a musical “Duet,” but things are definitely seeming different in Central City. Not only do new set photos reveal some musical-seeming shenanigans afoot, but new reports suggest that at least Supergirl will have her own fresh musical threads.
Well, they had to come back from Gorilla City eventually, right? The Flash won’t head to Earth-2 to check in with Grodd until the February 21 “Attack on Gorilla City,” but already The CW is preparing for a return journey with the following week’s “Attack on Central City” synopsis, complete with special guests and new photos.
For as much as I love the madness that was the comics of the 1990s, I cannot even imagine how incredible it must have been to be a comic-loving kid (or weird comic loving adult) in the 1950/60s period known as The Silver Age.
Within this gallery, I've put together only the smallest of fractions of some of the entertaining, out-of-context fun that Batman's 75 years of non-stop published stories have afforded us. Try your best to make sense of them.
If Gotham’s Joker-heavy “Gentle Art of Making Enemies” serves as any kind of reminder, it’s that the FOX drama will often rise as close as it can to costumed Batman villains without taking the plunge. That said, one of its most enduring creations may finally suit up, as Cory Michael Smith’s Edward Nygma appears to become a costumed Riddler in the April return trailer.
Arrow gave us a quick glimpse at both Talia al Ghul and a new Black Canary in last week’s 2017 premiere “Who Are You,” but you won’t have to wait for Wednesday to get a closer look at either. See for yourself in new photos from this week’s “Second Chances,” as Oliver trains with Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter in flashback, while attempting to recruit a new teammate in the present.
It wasn’t long ago that Flash producers confirmed the ghoulish Black Flash would recur across other CW super-dramas; a likely target being placed on Legends of Tomorrow for its current speedster threat. Now, producers confirm we’ll be seeing the erstwhile Zoom in the flesh (what’s left of it) on Legends, while the penultimate and final Season 2 episodes will bring a crossover promised to “send fans into squeals of joy.”
NBC’s take on DC comedy will make us all Powerless within a week’s time, so you might as well enjoy the first clips. Not only does LexCorp get numerous shoutouts, but Bruce Wayne himself puts in an appearance … over the phone.
Supergirl will mark the first of The CW’s DC shows to debut in 2017, while Kevin Smith adds a second series under his belt directing January 23 return “Supergirl Lives.” Our first photos take Kara and Mon-El to an alien world, running afoul of Dichen Lachman’s Roulette, and Kevin Smith’s own daughter, Harley Quinn.
The CW has enough superheroes for one lifetime, between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, to say nothing of DC outliers like FOX’s Gotham.
