The Flash will be sitting out Valentine’s Day not just for all its coupled viewers, but presumably the task of extended Grodd VFX in its two-part “Attack on Gorilla City” arc. As such, the extended trailer for next week’s return brings with it just a hair more Gorilla, and a dash of Indiana Jones.

This week, there’s a Luthor on trial in the court of law, and another on trial in the court of public opinion, and Supergirl must decide who she can trust. Also, Metallo returns, and romance may be in the air. “Luthors” was directed by Tawnia McKiernan from a script by Robert Rovner and Cindy Lichtman.
The success of Arrow has now preceded no less than four CW DC dramas, so might Archie follow suit after the rave reception of Riverdale? A new development deal with Archie Comics could see additional characters landing shows to complement the malt shop murder-mystery, if not additional superhero series.
It just wouldn’t be Mister Mxyzptlk without a trick up his sleeve, and the impish 5th-dimensional trickster couldn’t even wait for his own Supergirl episode to debut.

Arrow sleuths were quick to figure out after Laurel’s Season 4 death that Katie Cassidy hadn’t necessarily sought out a next gig, potentially keeping an Arrow-verse return in play.

We’re still at least a month out from The Flash and Supergirl teaming up for a musical “Duet,” but things are definitely seeming different in Central City.

Well, they had to come back from Gorilla City eventually, right? The Flash won’t head to Earth-2 to check in with Grodd until the February 21 “Attack on Gorilla City,” but already The CW is preparing for a return journey with the following week’s “Attack on Central City” synopsis, complete with special guests and new photos.
This week, Oliver and the Arrow Babies make a trip to Russia with the new Black Canary in tow! Will the stop the sale of the stolen nuclear weapon? Also, Quentin Lance is back from rehab! “Bratva” was directed by Ben Bray from a script by Oscar Balderrama and Emilio Aldrich.
You’d think The Flash had enough on his plate, between Savitar’s deadly prophecies and musical warm-ups ahead, but we’ve got a two-episode pit-stop in Gorilla City in the meantime. See the first trailer for Grodd’s return, as The Flash prepares for an “Attack on Gorilla City” to come.
It’ll be a cold day in hell when Batman joins the ranks of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl or Legends of Tomorrow on The CW, but LEGO has a way of bringing everyone together. See for yourself, as a new promo features the CW stars voicing their LEGO counterparts opposite Will Arnett’s LEGO Batman as part of a weeklong promotion.
