Painfully obvious though it was when The Flash’s “Attack on Gorilla City” needed to cut away from its titular beasts, or balance sweeping VFX shots with its human cast, the DC drama nonetheless proved far more ambitious than any superhero series before it. See for yourself in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the two-part event!

The logistics of getting Supergirl to interact with Arrow or The Flash are never easy, but fans have often wondered if the “Earth-1” we follow has a doppelganger Kara Zor-El out there, or if Supergirl’s universe might have an Oliver Queen to facilitate easier appearances. Sadly, producers have shot down that particular brand of crossover, citing the “floodgates of insanity” it might open.
Exciting though it was to have Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow teaming up for a four-way crossover, many were disappointed to find said “Invasion!” only taking place in three parts. Supergirl got the short end of the stick with an otherwise-unrelated episode, but producers hope to rectify that for the next big crossover event.
We don’t yet know if CW Seed’s animated Vixen will return for Season 3 (or another live-action Arrow appearance), but fans nonetheless have a new opportunity to catch up on her adventures. Vixen: The Movie will combine the two animated seasons into a feature-length Blu-ray, with plenty of bonus features.
The Flash’s “Attack on Gorilla City” understandably only had so much capacity to display the CG city and its expensive inhabitants, but will next week’s conclusion to the two-part event fare any better with a whole army of them? See for yourself in the first “Attack on Central City” trailer, as Grodd brings his crew town, with no Caesar or James Franco to hold them back.
The Flash seemed initially not to have gorillas on its “Gorilla City” tour, but may finally have found some in the latest photos. Meet DC’s Solovar, as the Keith David character gets a comic makeover in some impressive new photos from Tuesday’s “Attack on Gorilla City.”
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.
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.
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.
