Supergirl seems to be front-loading Season 2 with DC goodness, between Superman and Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter, and that’s just fine by us. Latest to join the CW transplant are Sharon Leal’s Miss Martian and Dichen Lachman’s Roulette, both of whom are fully revealed in the new “Survivors” trailer.

The first major crossover between Arrow and The Flash didn’t bother with too much story in common, while the second largely served to set up Legends of Tomorrow, so what happens when all three get together for one story? Matching titles! See for yourself, as one unifying threat brings together Flash, Arrow and Legends for the crossover event, shared title and all.
Superman may have flown the coop of Supergirl Season 2, but the CW transplant isn’t about to lack for extra-terrestrials anytime soon. As early as this Monday, we’ll meet Sharon Leal’s Miss Martian (not to mention a Wonder-ous Madame President), and we’ve got your first look.
This week’s episode, “A Matter of Trust,” finds Oliver continuing his quest to save Star City both as mayor and as the Green Arrow --- but will his new team ever learn to listen? Will a news anchor make Thea’s life a living nightmare? Will Cody Rhodes make an absolutely dashing new villain? Gregory Smith directed the episode from a script by Ben Sokolowski and Emilio Ortega Aldrich.
The Flash has been teasing the possibility of “Flashpoint” since Season 1, threatening to splinter timelines whenever Barry entertains the notion of saving his mother. Why then, after Season 2 seemingly made the leap, did Season 3 open with a slightly-modified timeline, then walk it back by the hour’s end? Turns out, that wasn’t always the plan.
The Flash has paid homage to its original 1990 TV incarnation about thrice over by now, but with John Wesley Shipp finally joining the race, it was only a matter of time before things got tricky once more. Looks like Mark Hamill is in on the joke, as fresh set photos reveal the Trickster’s new look in Season 3.
Arrow fans have come to grips with the idea that certain DC heavy-hitters will likely never make the leap to The CW’s DC shows, but that divide became exceptionally confusing with the shuffling off of Suicide Squad characters in preparation for this summer’s film. Now, not only is a prominent Squad-mate headed back to Arrow, but producers explain how they might be able to feature the characters going forward.
The Flash brought another speedster into the mix with “Magenta,” and it looks like he’s going to need it for next week’s outing. Meet the “New Rogues,” as the latest Flash Season 3 trailer finally introduces the series take on Mirror Master, along with a surprise suit-up!
Supergirl had its fun with iconic covers of DC past when The Flash came to town, and it looks like The CW will follow suit with a major Crisis for Tyler Hoechlin’s second Superman episode. Plus … could the Man of Steel wind up with his own CW series?
Why yes, it does bear repeating that Supergirl got off to a flying start with this past week’s premiere, and there’s loads of DC goodness int store before we ever get to that four-way crossover. Find out for yourself, as new synopsis teases the introduction of both Miss Martian, and DC gamemaker Roulette.
