When DC Rebirth was announced, it promised to bring back a sense of levity and community that had been missing from the DC Universe since the shift to the New 52 --- and there's nothing like a holiday special to lighten the mood and remind people of the communal relationships between superheroes, so that's what we're getting this holiday season!

The CW already has in mind a fall 2016 schedule with four DC dramas during the week, so why not make it five? CW Seed’s animated Vixen re-enters the fray with a Season 2 premiere the very same week as Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
It didn’t take long after the announcement of a musical Supergirl-Flash crossover for rumor mills to jump the gun with reports of Joss Whedon and Neil Patrick Harris, when in reality producers have only just begun assembling the four-way crossover. Now, DC boss Greg Berlanti updates on the musical, including a writer “we’re really excited about.”
The third year of CW crossovers was already big enough between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, before Supergirl unexpectedly flew into the fray. And while most details of the four-way teamup remain under wraps, producers suggest that Supergirl itself will play a limited role in the upcoming crossover.
The moment DC TV power-player Greg Berlanti had in mind to develop Black Lightning as its own series, we knew it’d move fast. So it is, that FOX has nabbed the new DC drama, with a pilot production commitment for the future.
Just when you thought The CW might be on the verge of fully transforming into a DC lineup, Black Lightning brings that possibility one step closer. One of the minds behind Arrow and The Flash is developing the famous African-American superhero into his own series, with pitches already out to networks.
Critics of the DC Cinematic Universe have often pointed out that Warner Bros. has tried to crawl before they can walk, choosing to stuff their movies with as many recognizable villains and superheroes as possible instead of slowly ramping up their exposure for movie fans. And while I am certainly not as pessimistic about the future of the DCU as others, I will agree that Warner Bros. too often seems to include three or more characters when one or two would suffice. So it’s not particularly surprising to hear a rumor that the standalone Flash movie will feature — you guessed it — as many villains as possib
On this day in 1959, DC Comics published The Flash #110 by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, and introduced the world to a brand new speedster as Barry Allen gained a sidekick in the form of Kid Flash. Wallace “Wally” West was the nephew of Barry’s girlfriend Iris, but over the years he grew from a sidekick to a Titan, to a hero in his own right after inheriting the mantle of The Flash.
The Flash Season 3 already raised a multiverse of questions by its big “Flashpoint” twist, not the least of which was another speedster glimpsed on set against Wally West. Most presumed that actor Todd Lasance was behind the “Savitar” role teased as our new big bad, but fresh footage and intel clarifies Barry’s new “Rival.”
Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to both readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months' time, but there's so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in DC's solicits, it's all about big returns, especially when it comes to villains we haven't seen for a while. Also, the return of a fan-favorite DCYou series in the unlikeliest of places, and the return of a classic Teen Titan back to confront his supervillain father!
