Never quite reaching the pinnacle of its first two years, Arrow has nonetheless bounced back from Season 3 criticism in all but the series’ flashbacks, increasingly seen as a burden on the show. Now, producers acknowledge the difficulty of keeping Oliver’s past adventures relevant, promising the fifth season to have a more decisive plan in place, and potentially tipping to their location as well.
It was enough of a DC miracle that Supergirl succeeded in bringing over The Flash for a “Worlds Finest” crossover, that we’d forgive some slightly wonky timing between the two series. Now, weeks after Barry and Kara became super-best friends over ice cream, a new preview for next week’s “Versus Zoom” sheds some light on how Barry ended up in the Supergirl universe.
We’ve already seen on a number of occasions that DC doesn’t share characters well between the movie and TV branches (with the exception of The Flash), but could Legends of Tomorrow at least stretch its timey-wimey magic to bring us a future Batman? Producers think it’s a stretch, but then again, if fans made Supergirl and Flash’s ice cream power hour happen …
CBS’ Supergirl as of yet lacks a formal Season 2 renewal (given the fun of last night’s crossover, expect one any day), though that hasn’t stopped Kara from keeping an eye on Season 2. Not only is an erstwhile Wonder Woman likely to take part, but so too might Supergirl Season 2 bring in clone of Superman himself.
FOX’s Gotham has delved even deeper into Batman’s beginnings in recent weeks by the additions of Mr. Freeze, Hugo Strange and more, while li’l Bruce Wayne and Gordon’s journeys are only just beginning. FOX has officially renewed its Bat-prequel drama for a third season, airing this fall.
As the new Captain America: Civil War trailer opens, an roomful of superheroes watch footage of an alien invasion that decimated New York City.
Fans of either Supergirl or The Flash have been racing for details since CBS first announced their March crossover, and the super-details have finally arrived! Not only do we have our first poster of the “Worlds Finest” race, but also official story details on the big universe-hopping teamup.
With the announcement of the Rebirth event, DC Comics has unveiled another line-wide relaunch with new #1 issues across the board. Aside from some eyebrow raisers such as The Super Sons, DC looks to be playing it safe with a core set of books focused on recognizable characters, with many of them now published twice monthly.
DC’s last line-wide relaunch in 2011, The New 52, was a lot bolder in the chances it took with its ongoing series, and promoted a wide range of genre diversity and odd curiosities. With The New 52 nearly five years old, only a handful of those original books are still being published, and while some of the lost titles remain cult-favorites, a lot of them have already faded into obscurity. Here are 15 New 52 titles that were the first to fall.
Supergirl has certainly opened up DC’s live-action endeavors to alien comic characters that neither Arrow nor Flash have space to explore, and a fan-favorite may soon make his debut. A new clip from tonight’s “Truth, Justice and the American Way” seems to allude to a certain “interstellar bounty hunter,” but could it be the main man himself, DC’s Lobo?
