Come on, sooner or later, someone had to use those pipes. With the addition of Supergirl to the Arrow-verse, musical fans practically had bingo of amazing singers sharing the screen, and The CW will finally reward us for it. Not only will Supergirl and The Flash have a two-episode musical crossover of their very own, we’ll also meet Miss Martian this season.
The flurry of Comic-Con 2016 afforded us our first look at the big-screen Justice League all suited up, while a few doors down saw DC’s TV heroes similarly previewing their next appearances. TV Flash Grant Gustin even had a chance to check out his big-screen counterpart’s Flash-ier costume, noting that the CW version had more of a “street, vintage” feel.
Just when you thought you’d had your fill of superheroes at Comic-Con 2016, animated or otherwise, Vixen returns to unite The CW’s DC players once more. Our first look at Season 2 of the animated CW Seed drama brings both Barry Allen and Firestorm into the mix, but who’s the weathered new big bad?
The Flash couldn’t wait to speed out its first Season 3 footage, but the smash DC drama certainly slowed things down at Comic-Con 2016. In addition to some major additions and crossover tease, what major details did the superhero cast reveal from San Diego? Our full panel report!
Even as The Flash succinctly wrapped up Season 2 with Zoom’s defeat, the final moments sent a tingle down DC spines, to seemingly set up a universe-shattering “Flashpoint” arc for Season 3. It remained to be seen how The Flash might tackle such a wide-ranging DC story, but series star Grant Gustin at least confirms Season 3 headed in that direction with an official premiere title.
The addition of Supergirl to The CW lineup of course demanded an epic four-way crossover with Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, though fans of Glee alum Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin in particular have clamored for the talented casts to put their pipes to good use. Stephen Amell has put his green boot down, however, wanting to get Arrow back to its grounded roots, rather than go anywhere near musical territory.
Apart from the initial trailer, Supergirl’s imminent Flash crossover let fly a few quick clips in a behind-the-scenes featurette, but the real deal has arrived, every bit as adorably as you dreamed. Watch super-sparks fly (with plenty of Arrow, Legends references and meta-humor in our longest look yet!
The moment we knew for certain that Supergirl would meet The Flash, rays of sunshine burst forth from the combination of TV’s lightest heroes at a time we sorely need that. Now, everyone literally gets ice cream in quick clips from the “Worlds Finest” crossover, nestled in a new behind-the-scenes featurette.
Flash leading man Grant Gustin and Supergirl star Melissa Benoist have two things in common. First, they both play the sunshiniest DC superheroes ever to brighten our TV screens in their respective shows. Second, they both got their big breaks on the Fox high school musical series Glee.
To mark their crossover in next week's Supergirl episode "Worlds Finest", ComicsAlliance's Elle Collins and Andrew Wheeler took a look at other Glee cast members who could follow their former colleagues into heroic roles on the DC super-shows --- perhaps in guest spots on either The Flash or Supergirl.
Supergirl dropped a Cadmus-load of DC goodness by Monday’s “Manhunter,” but then came The Flash speeding along for our first official footage of next week’s “Worlds Finest” crossover! Wouldn’t you know it, those crazy kids are every bit as adorable in action as the photos would suggest.
