Gotham never exactly hid the fact that Cameron Monaghan’s “Jerome” was intended as a prequel stand-in of sorts for The Joker, but boy, if the final Season 3 episode until spring isn’t punctuating it with a bang. See for yourself in a “white-band” trailer for next week’s “The Gentle Art of Making Enemies,” as FOX finally confers a certain Joker name, amid all the madness.

‘Arrow’ Season 5 opens 2017 asking “Who Are You?” to an obviously fake Laurel, but does Prometheus’ master plan make any more sense than last year? Plus, who’s the new Canary Cry-baby, or Oliver’s flashback friend? Find out in our full review!
It’s taken three years to get us there, but The Flash is finally ready to Vibe on a new costumed hero. An extended trailer for next week’s “Dead or Alive” finally gives Cisco the full suit from his future vision, as the Justice League’s Gypsy comes to town, and a certain Super-set makes an appearance.
The Flash had plenty of looming mysteries to address by the time of 2017 premiere “Borrowing Problems From the Future,” the title of which proved surprisingly literal. Not only were Savitar’s three prophecies shoved aside, but Season 3 laid the groundwork for its two-part musical “Duet” with Supergirl, a certain city of the apes, and more.
Long before Flash and Supergirl confirmed their musical crosover “Duet,” fans pointed to the shared Glee past between Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist as proof of concept. Now, their Music Meister fittingly hails from the same hallowed halls, as Darren Criss signs on to musically menace the Super-duo.
Melissa Benoist certainly made some worthwhile headlines this weekend, and just in time for Supergirl herself to make a 2017 debut with Kevin Smith’s “Supergirl Lives.” The first clips for the Girl of Steel’s return episode have arrived, and suffice to say, Kara and Mon-El are going to spend some time facing their vulnerabilities.
Love that Joker, but not in the mood to laugh? NBC’s Powerless has you covered. A clever new in-universe ad for the NBC DC comedy promotes Wayne Security’s latest anti-villain measure; one that should get you out of a jam when the Clown Prince of Crime rolls through town with his famous laughing gas.
For the most part, Arrow has managed to keep continuity in order as the flashbacks interact with present day, though word of Lexa Doig’s Talia al Ghul appearing in Oliver’s Russian past raised a few questions. Thankfully, producers promise that Talia’s appearance won’t throw too many wrenches in the works, and might just give us a Nyssa-Talia meeting one day.
Seeing as we could all use something lighter to think about, Supergirl and The Flash are officially reporting for rehearsal of their big musical crossover. Not only has The CW set a late March debut for the showstopping two-part event, but we also know which Arrow-verse stars will flex their pipes.
If you smell what The Rock’s been cookin’ (i.e. if you follow him) on social media, then you know that the charismatic and insanely busy actor recently had a very good meeting over at DC about the long-awaited Shazam movie. (No, not like that make-believe ’90s movie.) Apparently, that meeting went so well that the studio has reportedly split the film into two projects — or, more likely, they realized the error in thinking they could just cast Dwayne Johnson as a super-villain in someone else’s movie.
