Supergirl has already gifted us its spin on a few classic Superman tales, and now another memorable mischief-maker is targeting Kara’s return to National City. Prepare to copy and paste the name “Mister Mxyzptlk” a lot, as the infamously impish villain will make an appearance in Season 2.
The CW’s fourway crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow had enough material for five episodes, let alone three, so a few scenes understandably fell by the wayside. Among them, producers reveal two Supergirl-Legends connections we may explore in the future, and a deeper dive into the mysterious Dominators.
Now that the four-way crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow has come to an invasive close, the hunt begins for DC references and easter eggs! One moment in particular saw Brandon Routh referencing his own Superman Returns past, but don’t expect Supergirl to be let in on the joke just yet.
Excitement was already high for The Flash to return Kevin Smith behind the camera in an all-out “Killer Frost” hour, but few expected we’d get such an immediate clue to the identity of Season 3’s sub-big bad. Did “Killer Frost” finally reveal Dr. Alchemy’s identity, and if so, was it exactly who we thought?
Last night’s Flash outing finally introduced us to Season 3's big bad “Savitar,” a hulking self-described “God of Speed” that last had Barry pinned against the wall. His lightning movements made the CG character difficult to see at first, but one small detail raises an interesting question, and might just upend Cisco’s prophesied “Vibe” about Caitlin becoming an evil “Killer Frost.”
Kevin Smith’s first Flash episode “The Runaway Dinosaur” ended up a rather emotional affair, but our first look at “Killer Frost” is anything but tearful. Instead, Caitlin seems to be running white-hot (or white-cold) in our first photos of the final pre-crossover outing.
Supergirl set off something of a mini-mystery with news that Cyborg Superman would appear in next week’s “The Darkest Place,” forcing producers to clarify that Tyler Hoechlin wouldn’t be returning just yet. A number of probable candidates could possibly fill the cyborg boots, but our first trailer for “The Darkest Place” may have revealed an unexpectedly obvious solution.
Flash fans have known since The CW series first confirmed Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow as major characters that Vibe and Killer Frost would one day grace the screen. All three seasons have taken steps closer to their comic counterparts, and now a new featurette finally reveals what Killer Frost and Vibe will look like all-suited up.
Seeing as Kevin Smith managed to sneak Jason Mewes into The Flash not once, but twice, it stands to reason more View Askew faces would drop by the DC universe in a second go. It seems the Mallrats filmmaker managed to get Harley Quinn into his upcoming Supergirl episode, albeit probably not the one you’re thinking.
It’s never entirely clear where DC draws the line at major heroes and villains in The CW series, given the use of characters like Superman and Flash, but not Batman. Green Lantern too has been given frequent Arrow reference, though producers now officially state they “could never” feature the character in brightest day, or blackest night.
