We’re hard-pressed to imagine The CW adding yet a fifth DC superhero to its airwaves, but the FOX-transplanted Black Lightning is nonetheless ready to strike. See for yourself in the first official production photo, as Hart of Dixie alum Cress Wiliams suits up in an electrifying costume.
Now that Arrow has confirmed one of its most enduring players will be back for Season 6 full-time, it’s worth wondering whether the main cast is untouchable. Every season has its deaths, but according to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, there’s at least one member of Team Arrow who gets a lifetime pass, and it isn’t Oliver Queen.
This week, the Flash is good, but Abra Kadabra? He's magic. Also, Caitlin goes into surgery, and Joe deals with a moral dilemma. "Abra Kadabra" was directed by Nina Lopez-Corrado, with a story by Andrew Kreisberg, and teleplay by Brooke Roberts & David Kob.
The Flash made lofty promises that Season 4 would break tradition with a non-speedster big bad, and our first hint toward next year’s villain might get your mind running. A small clue from this week’s “Abra Kadabra” may suggest Barry has a date with “The Thinker” in his future, once Savitar is put to rest.
The Flash has primarily made use of time-travel to visit the past, but with Savitar’s murder of Iris looming, a trip to the future is in order. As such, next month’s “Once and Future Flash” may finally introduce us to the 2024 Barry, complete with a much more comic-looking costume.
This week, Supergirl is back from her cross-dimensional musical adventure, and Mon-El’s guest star parents are still floating above the earth in their big spaceship waiting to ground him. Also, Alex meets one of Maggie’s exes! “Distant Sun” was directed by Kevin Smith from a script by Gabriel Llanas and Anna Musky-Goldwyn.
Arrow didn’t make Laurel’s Season 5 return terribly difficult to figure out, and won’t keep you in suspense for Season 6, either. Not only is Katie Cassidy coming back for the final Season 5 episodes, but Laurel Lance will be back full-time in Season 6, singing her Black Siren-song.
There were only so many ways The Flash could spin Reverse-Flash’s identity, and few choices for the man under Zoom’s mask, so will Savitar prove any different? That’s the buzz from Flash cast and crew, who explain the delayed reveal and promise “You won’t see it coming.”
On this week’s episode, Prometheus and Ollie both prove that torture is an effective interrogation technique, and Dolph Lundgren finally returns! “Kapiushon” was directed Kevin Tancharoen and written by Brian Sullivan and Emilio Aldrich.
Anyone following Arrow at fan conventions in the last few years will recognize one very specific question: “Will Felicity ever suit up and become a vigilante?” Well, get ready, as some new concept art from the penultimate Legends of Tomorrow episode sees “Doomworld” bringing us just that.
