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. Well, get ready for another superhero (or villain?) to join the ranks in 2017, as those in the know say there’s another DC TV series on the way
Gotham isn’t exactly making secret of Cameron Monaghan’s smiling return as Jerome Valeska in 2017, but his won’t be the only familiar face back from the dead. Our first synopsis for 2017 premiere “Ghosts” also reveals Paul Reubens back in his role as Oswald Cobblepot’s father, but how?
Supergirl Season 2 hasn’t lacked for notable DC villains, between Parasite, Roulette and more, but 2017 could prove even more charged. Multiple favorites from the series and Superman’s rogues gallery are signing up for 2017 returns, including Livewire, Metallo and more.
Legends of Tomorrow likely had the most cleanup after the four-way crossover, though winter finale “The Chicago Way” did manage to catch us up with Rip Hunter; albeit a very different Rip than we remember. Now, the 2017 return trailer teases a more fully-formed Legion of Doom, with a dumbstruck Rip as their prisoner.
If there’s one arrival Gotham fans are more excited for than The Dark Knight himself, it’s the return of Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker “Jerome.” 2017 trailers made clear we’d see the character again, but does a new premiere photo from “Smile Like You Mean It” reveal a familiar faceless grin? Might there be a bizarre tie-in with The Dark Knight itself?
The first installments of Cartoon Network’s new Justice League Action will bow as early as this Friday, and the latest look at our “Shazam Slam” beginnings trot out even more DC favorites. Arrow meets Constantine yet again in a new clip, along with Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman and more.
NBC DC comedy Powerless was bound to undergo some creative changes with the departure of showrunner Ben Queen, and now that we’ve locked down a February premiere, those changes are starting to take shape. It looks like Powerless will have a major Batman connection, as revealed in a new synopsis.
