Now that we’ve crossed over into March, Flash and Supergirl are warming up for the big two-night musical crossover starting on March 20. Synopses for both episodes have arrived, the first of which includes Teri Hatcher’s arrival, but Music Meister’s machinations are … somewhat disappointing.

It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where returning Arrow watcher Chris Haley and newcomer Emma Lawson dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
On this week’s episode, political intrigue abounds! Will Oliver be impeached from his position as Star City’s mayor? Will there be press conferences? Will politicians ask questions? Also, Vigilante and Prometheus are both back! “Fighting Fire with Fire” was directed Michael Schultz and written by Speed Weed and Ben Sokolowski.
It’d be too much to ask for Supergirl to start crossing universes with every CW show, but we might have the next best thing. iZombie star Rahul Kohli will guest star in an upcoming episode as a notable DC villain (and Lena Luthor’s ex), but new word suggests Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant might not return for Season 2 after all.
The CW’s iZombie is more or less bringing up the rear of 2017 debuts, but isn’t afraid to make a statement with its first Season 3 poster. See for yourself, as Rose McIver does her best Che Guevara in a stylized first look at the April premiere.
This week, Supergirl and Mon-El are officially an item, and Jeremiah Danvers is rescued from the clutches of Cadmus… but is everything what it seems? “Homecoming” was directed by Larry Teng from a script by Caitlin Parrish and Derek Simon.
Painfully obvious though it was when The Flash’s “Attack on Gorilla City” needed to cut away from its titular beasts, or balance sweeping VFX shots with its human cast, the DC drama nonetheless proved far more ambitious than any superhero series before it. See for yourself in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the two-part event!
Supergirl’s ability to call on the full Superman cast has been difficult to chart; whether introducing its own Man of Steel after a season spent teasing him, or recent references to Lex Luthor. We’ve now officially met the latter in flashback, but might Supergirl follow suit with a full-fledged appearance, or are some characters still off-limits?
The logistics of getting Supergirl to interact with Arrow or The Flash are never easy, but fans have often wondered if the “Earth-1” we follow has a doppelganger Kara Zor-El out there, or if Supergirl’s universe might have an Oliver Queen to facilitate easier appearances. Sadly, producers have shot down that particular brand of crossover, citing the “floodgates of insanity” it might open.
It’s official: The CW has been struck by lightning. After absorbing FOX’s Black Lightning pilot, the new DC drama from Arrow-verse architect Greg Berlanti will return Hart of Dixie alum Cress Williams to The CW as its superhero series’ title character.
We don’t yet know if CW Seed’s animated Vixen will return for Season 3 (or another live-action Arrow appearance), but fans nonetheless have a new opportunity to catch up on her adventures. Vixen: The Movie will combine the two animated seasons into a feature-length Blu-ray, with plenty of bonus features.
