There’s no guarantee DC’s Black Lightning will move forward as a series, even after The CW rescued it from FOX, but it looks like a pilot is nonetheless gearing up. New reports suggest the Greg Berlanti drama is preparing to cast its core players, offering descriptions of the Idris Elba-type to fill the title role, and more.
The Flash will be sitting out Valentine’s Day not just for all its coupled viewers, but presumably the task of extended Grodd VFX in its two-part “Attack on Gorilla City” arc. As such, the extended trailer for next week’s return brings with it just a hair more Gorilla, and a dash of Indiana Jones.
The success of Arrow has now preceded no less than four CW DC dramas, so might Archie follow suit after the rave reception of Riverdale? A new development deal with Archie Comics could see additional characters landing shows to complement the malt shop murder-mystery, if not additional superhero series.
It just wouldn’t be Mister Mxyzptlk without a trick up his sleeve, and the impish 5th-dimensional trickster couldn’t even wait for his own Supergirl episode to debut. The classic Superman villain put in a first appearance with “Luthors,” and now gets his own trailer with a first look at “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk.”
Arrow sleuths were quick to figure out after Laurel’s Season 4 death that Katie Cassidy hadn’t necessarily sought out a next gig, potentially keeping an Arrow-verse return in play. Cassidy even supposedly signed the same “franchise regular” contract as a few Legends, though producers now explain what’s holding up another appearance.
We’re still at least a month out from The Flash and Supergirl teaming up for a musical “Duet,” but things are definitely seeming different in Central City. Not only do new set photos reveal some musical-seeming shenanigans afoot, but new reports suggest that at least Supergirl will have her own fresh musical threads.
Well, they had to come back from Gorilla City eventually, right? The Flash won’t head to Earth-2 to check in with Grodd until the February 21 “Attack on Gorilla City,” but already The CW is preparing for a return journey with the following week’s “Attack on Central City” synopsis, complete with special guests and new photos.
‘Arrow’ Season 5 puts Russia back in the headlines with another “Bratva” venture, but are Oliver’s questionable choices about to send Felicity down the dark side? Plus, is Susan now Season 5’s biggest threat? Find out in our full review!
You’d think The Flash had enough on his plate, between Savitar’s deadly prophecies and musical warm-ups ahead, but we’ve got a two-episode pit-stop in Gorilla City in the meantime. See the first trailer for Grodd’s return, as The Flash prepares for an “Attack on Gorilla City” to come.
