Seeing as we could all use something lighter to think about, Supergirl and The Flash are officially reporting for rehearsal of their big musical crossover. Not only has The CW set a late March debut for the showstopping two-part event, but we also know which Arrow-verse stars will flex their pipes.
Two Flash episodes under his belt (jorts?) give Kevin Smith a fair shot not to have bungled 2017 Supergirl return “Supergirl Lives” next week, and it seems The CW would agree. Smith will apparently be back to direct another episode, before Season 2 is out.
We wouldn’t call the new Supergirl extended 2017 trailer full of “friendly” faces, but certainly familiar ones. Not only is Livewire back, and ready to murder her super-nemesis, but the new sneak peek reveals a glimpse of those pesky crossover Dominators wreaking some additional havoc within the Supergirl universe.
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.
Supergirl had its fun introducing an actual Superman early into Season 2, though it stood to reason Tyler Hoechlin wouldn’t be sticking around forever. Naturally, fans would love to see the brighter, cheerier take on the Man of Steel again, to which CW head Mark Pedowitz updates on the possibility of a return, or perhaps even a spinoff.
The moment Flash and Supergirl fans learned the two would share a musical crossover in 2017, Neil Patrick Harris’ Music Meister was put forth as a potential villain. We don’t yet know exactly which star will test the pipes of Barry and Kara, but whoever they are will indeed do so as The Music Meister, producers confirm.
Lest you think the reign of the Super-s at The CW was anywhere close to ending, the network passed out a generous round of renewals on Sunday, Not only is the DC foursome of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends renewed for new seasons, but so too will Supernatural return, among others.
Supergirl has skewed a bit more traditional with its adaptation of famous DC characters, but it was worth wondering how the series might tackle an impish trickster from the 5th Dimension. We may now know, as set photos appear to place Once Upon a Time star Peter Gadiot in the infamous role of Mister Mxyzptlk.
Kevin Smith will return to the DC TV-verse a third time for Supergirl’s 2017 premiere, and he’s brought Harley Quinn with him. Not that Harley Quinn, mind you, but his daughter, who forms the centerpiece of a new synopsis for our “Supergirl Lives” midseason premiere.
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
