CBS’ Supergirl has gone pretty all-in when it comes to depicting outlandish DC characters, and the next to pop up on the comic drama is downright scary. Following a Flash-y cameo, the first full look at Italia Ricci as DC big bad Silver Banshee has arrived, howling makeup and all.

We’ve known for some time Legends of Tomorrow would travel to “Star City 2046” to meet a future iteration of Arrow’s Oliver Queen, as well as Connor Hawke, both of which made their photo debut earlier today. Now that the first trailer has arrived however, it seems Deathstroke has been confirmed for a return after all - with a twist.
Just as last night’s Flash brought us a look at King Shark’s return, so too did tonight’s Arrow bring our first footage of a live-action Vixen! Megalyn Echikunwoke reprises her role as the DC superheroine in the first “Taken” trailer, bringing the might of the animal kingdom along with her.
The Flash has worked enough miracles to bring us a live-action King Shark in the first place, let alone his own episode, and now we’re really gonna need a bigger boat. Our first look at Barry’s oceanic opponent has arrived, with a Jaws-style teaser for next Tuesday’s “King Shark.”
The Flash’s first trip to Earth-2 promised easter eggs galore, and DC delivered an entire multiverse’s worth! Not only did CBS’ Supergirl make her first official crossover of sorts, but tonight’s trippy Flash also teased our first look at Legends’ Jonah Hex and Connor Hawke, another familiar Flash, and near of the entire damn Justice League!
Batgirl has been firing on all cylinders since the creative team of Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr came aboard just over a year ago, and has carved a niche as not only one of the most exciting books published by DC Comics, but as a book that's genuinely representative of the millennial experience. It might just be the amount of Lucha Underground that this particular millennial watches, but the most exciting moment in comics this week came from Batgirl #48, with the team joined by Rob Haynes, Serge LaPointe and Lee Loughridge.
The moment Supergirl was announced for CBS, Flash and Arrow fans have hoped for a potential crossover between The CW and CBS. Recent responses from executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti have overwhelmingly dashed our hopes, but it looks like Supergirl pulled a fast one. Barry Allen is coming to National City!
CBS’ Supergirl has understandably kept its distance from an actual Superman appearance, both for in-story purposes and the character’s cinematic exploits, but would a familiar face help? Smallville star Tom Welling never technically got a chance to don the famous cape, and answers if he’d be open to stepping in as Supergirl’s Man of Steel.
Midway through its fourth season, Arrow has admittedly lost a step here and there, never quite regaining the heights of its second season battle against Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson. Stephen Amell surprisingly concurs, admitting at a recent convention that he hopes the character might return, as Arrow has been “missing something” since Season 2.
However dim hope seemed in the first place, fans of both Supergirl and The Flash perked up at news that Warner Bros. had a month or so to work out a potential multi-network crossover for its DC heroes this season. Sadly, that ship seems to have sailed, according to mutual executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
