If there’s one thing we can count on in the DCCW universe, it’s that the various shows will crossover with each other, every year, like clockwork. For example, we already know that Felicity’s going to show up in The Flash this year, and Green Arrow will visit the Legends of Tomorrow. But now we know a bit more about…
Sometimes you make a plan assuming things aren’t going to go your way. And then they do, and you’re kind of stuck with the plan. That’s exactly the thinking that resulted in iZombie’s morally bankrupt brain seller, Blaine (David Anders), having a giant, eye patch-wearing, mute minion named Chief (Andre Tricoteux).
I’m not sure why The Flash was the only CW superhero show that had footage assembled for its next season, but I’m not complaining: I was dying to know what happened after Barry selfishly saved his mom’s live in the past and rewrote the timeline for everyone he ever loved. In a word, “Flashpoint.”
Of course, it’s a Legion of Doom drawn from characters that already exist in the CW’s version of the DC universe, including Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), the Reverse-Flash, and Captain Cold.
Ragman is coming to Arrow. Yes, Ragman! The CW/DC universe’s propensity for getting delightfully all-in on as much DC Comics history they can get their hands on is well known, but even then, this is a surprise.
One of the best parts of iZombie is the conceit that zombies take on the personalities and skills of the people whose brains they eat. Luckily, we didn’t need to eat the brains of the show’s cast and crew to learn what’s in store for season three. They just told us.
Neither. Both. They’re both entirely generic in completely different ways. Pick your poison with our spoiler-free first impressions of their pilots.
The CW’s got a new comics-based show, but there’s nary a masked vigilante to be found. Instead, Riverdale feels like a series from the teen-focused CW of old. Here are our spoiler-free first impressions of the very strange, very goofy, and very fun pilot.
Recent rumblings surrounding the arrival of a few DC comics characters making their way to Supergirl season two teased that the show could be introducing its own take on Maggie Sawyer, a police officer who was the one-time fiancé of Batwoman. But good news! Those rumors were true, and Maggs is heading to National City.
We’re excited to see Supergirl heading to the CW this year, but that excitement is tinged with the sadness of the fact it means the show will have a lot less of its golden regular Calista Flockhart as the fabulously icy Cat Grant. That probability seemingly has become much more certain with the arrival of what appears…
Why? Because John Barrowman now has a deal that makes him a series regular across all of the CW’s DC shows including Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow,
Kevin Smith’s already directed an episode of The Flash, and he’s going to be back directing another episode for season three. But what he really wants to do is direct and write an episode of Arrow.
One of the biggest questions about the DC/CW universe of shows is whether the Flash, when he ended his second season by saving his mom in the past and rewriting the timeline, would also have changed the timelines of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. Yesterday, Stephen Amell suddenly declared that it would. Then he…
Tom “Draco Malfoy” Felton will be a series regular on The Flash when it returns in the fall, as one of Barry Allen’s new co-workers at the Central City Police Department. Will he play a villain? (Does he ever not play a villain?) And what will his role mean in the season three’s Flashpoint storyline?
Look. Arrow may be in a bit of a slump, The Flash may have made a few questionable decisions, and maybe Legends of Tomorrow was a little goofy for your taste. But it’s worth taking a moment to remember that these DC superhero shows—along with Supergirl—are giving us some of TV’s most absurdly awesome moments. Case in…
And we’ve already met her! Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) appeared in “Canary Cry,” attempting to get justice for her dead parents while also temporarily taking up the Black Canary duds. When we next see her, she’ll be Artemis.
After an entire season of seeing Superman from a distance, or blurry, or backlit with a glare, or just his foot, or with his texts, Supergirl is celebrating its move to the CW by actually casting the character. Oh thank you, Kryptonian god.
We’re pretty excited for Riverdale—the thought of getting something like the current, excellent modernized take on Archie on the CW could be a ton of fun. Hey, even KJ Apa’s Archie looks pretty good! But over the past few days, we’ve been a little less sure, and now a synopsis of the show has us scratching our heads…
The CW giveth and the CW taketh away: when Supergirl moves its production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Calista Flockhart may not be moving up there with them. Any episode without Cat Grant is automatically going to be one of lesser ones.
