Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 has unfurled with a vastly different structure than its first season, with enough new characters that you’d forgive the absence of Arthur Darvill’s Rip Hunter. The Legends will have next week’s crossover to keep occupied, but new details shed light on when, and how Hunter will re-enter the picture.

Now that all the extended trailers and sneak peeks are out in the open, we still need Supergirl to kick off the big “Invasion!” crossover this coming Monday. So it is with our first “Medusa” clip, that Thanksgiving dinner gets a very Flash-y entrance at an unexpected moment.
If you thought Supergirl palling around with the Legends of Tomorrow was the last crossover tease you’d get before next week’s “Invasion!”, you’re in for a treat. Watch the epic extended trailer for the four night event, complete with Flash, Arrow, aliens, and all manner of inexplicable crap!
In case there were any doubt Arrow would survive the four-part alien “Invasion!”, we’re already looking past the crossover to the series 101st episode, and a 2016 finale at that. Find out “What We Leave Behind” in the first photos, as Oliver finally takes on Prometheus, and returns to a classic look from Season 1.
It seemed criminal of The CW to head into next week’s four-part crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow without a fresh trailer, but never fear. See Kara’s fiery relationship with Heat Wave, along with fresh looks at the Dominators and more in brand-new footage!
We can argue all day about which entered the public consciousness first, but if The Flash brought in a white-haired woman unable to control her ice powers, you can bet Frozen references were incoming. Kevin Smith did the honors with this week’s “Killer Frost,” as a subtle background clue urged Caitlin to let it go. Let it goooooo …
We’ve less than a week before DC’s alien Dominators begin the four-part “Invasion” of Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, but given at least half of The CW’s DC dramas traffic in time-travel, the invasion may already have begun. Like, World War II-begun. See for yourself, in a cryptic “found footage” teaser.
Excitement was already high for The Flash to return Kevin Smith behind the camera in an all-out “Killer Frost” hour, but few expected we’d get such an immediate clue to the identity of Season 3’s sub-big bad. Did “Killer Frost” finally reveal Dr. Alchemy’s identity, and if so, was it exactly who we thought?
A bonafide TV Batman may have become the holy grail for DC fans, between the Arrow-verse tiptoeing around direct reference to the Dark Knight, or Gotham languishing in its inability to wait for Bruce Wayne’s future. Supergirl even made our first direct reference to Gotham City, and may now have hinted at Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman working with a troubled, technologically skilled vigilante.
The CW is still keeping Supergirl off on her own Earth, so that next weeks’ four-part “Invasion!” crossover will require special intervention from Barry and Cisco to unite Kara with Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. That said, the Dominators are already invading a new Supergirl poster for the event, and even Martian Manhunter is joining the fight.
