Now that the four-way crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow has come to an invasive close, the hunt begins for DC references and easter eggs! One moment in particular saw Brandon Routh referencing his own Superman Returns past, but don’t expect Supergirl to be let in on the joke just yet.

We’ve already seen one look at the new Justice League Action in … well, action, so when can we expect the official debut? As early as December, now that Cartoon Network confirms a four-part series premiere along with a brand-new clip featuring Superman and Wonder Woman.
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.
Supergirl set off something of a mini-mystery with news that Cyborg Superman would appear in next week’s “The Darkest Place,” forcing producers to clarify that Tyler Hoechlin wouldn’t be returning just yet. A number of probable candidates could possibly fill the cyborg boots, but our first trailer for “The Darkest Place” may have revealed an unexpectedly obvious solution.
Just when DC had us distracted with one shiny animation return, so too is the Justice League ready to grace our screens again in animated form. See for yourself in new clips from the forthcoming Justice League Action, including musical moments, alien worlds and a little Bat-time travel.
Supergirl snuck in a surprise announcement with the recent press release confirming the debut of DC villain “Cyborg Superman,” though the text was less than clear on who might be underneath (or woven around) said tech. We’ve had some theories, but if anyone was expecting a certain Super face from the past, we can apparently rule that one out.
The first season of Supergirl cleverly side-stepped the comic alter-ego of David Harewood’s Hank Henshaw to make the identity a cover for Martian Manhunter, but the real Cyborg Superman may arrive in a roundabout way. A new synopsis for “The Darkest Place” reveals the steely Superman’s debut, but who’s behind all the gear?
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.
We’re at least mildly curious to see what Syfy can do with Krypton that two Super-stars can’t, and the casting of some familiar faces should help. Not only is a lost Game of Thrones star coming to the rescue, but so too will we meet more from the House of El and Zod family.
