It’s getting to be that time of year, and The CW is going all-in with its formal renewals. Good news has arrived for fans of Black Lightning, Arrow, Flash, Riverdale, Supernatural and more, but who got left in the post-apocalyptic cold?
Arrow, Flash and others work around DC’s live-action limitations, even as certain properties remain in development hell. A live-action Batman Beyond in particular has eluded fans, but a new post from the Arrow-verse concept artist might bring that dream closer to reality.
There may be no weirder trajectory for a character than Matt Ryan’s Constantine. After a one-season NBC series and subsequent Arrow-verse resurrection, the fan-favorite DC hero is officially making a full-time return as a Legends of Tomorrow regular next season.
Black Lightning is exactly the jolt of reality the TV superhero genre needed – a jaded, vulnerable hero at a time ugly divisions of the past have come roaring back. Our pilot review, and a look at what’s to come.
Even as Arrow once again revoked access to Deathstroke, fans kept hope that recent references to Batman and Wonder Woman might signal greater leniency with the major DCEU characters. Not so, apparently, as Arrow boss Marc Guggenheim once again shoots down the notion that Justice League-rs Batman or Wonder Woman might make their CW debuts.
We’d always wondered how long The CW could keep folding DC dramas into its lineup, and the schedule might finally have cracked. Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will begin trading timeslots in 2018, pushing Supergirl’s finale all the way into June.
Just one day after Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow hit their crossover height, a very real issue brings them back to Earth. Allegations of sexual harassment against Supergirl producer Andrew Kreisberg have officially resulted in Warner Bros. firing the former showrunner.
At long last, The CW will finally treat Arrow, Flash, Legends and Supergirl to a proper four-way crossover with the two-night “Crisis on Earth-X.” The yearly event is always a highlight, but did you realize that The CW’s DC superheroes have met onscreen no less than twenty-five times? Before Barry and Iris’ big wedding brings comic chaos galore, the many Arrow-verse crossovers simply must be ranked.
