Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow To Give Us A Break In 2018!

All of the CW Arrowverse shows are currently on their winter break, and when they come back, expect some changes to scheduling, as Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow will fill the 8pm time slot on Mondays from January 15 through June 18, thus giving Black Lightning (which premieres on January 16th) room to shine on Tuesdays after The Flash, and giving us one less CW show to have to cover every week (whew!) The schedule is a little janky, but we break it down below.

From Monday, January 15 to February 5th, we’ll get 4 new episodes of Supergirl. Then from February 12th to April 9th, we’ll get 9(!) episodes of Legends, concluding with it’s season finale on the 9th. Finally, Supergirl returns for 10 episodes, culminating in the season finale on June 18th. From the way that lineup works, I expect Kara to see more trouble than success over the next 4 episodes. What do you think? Let us know!

Crisis On Earth-X! The Trailer For The CW DC Crossover Arrives!

Since the first CW superhero crossover, each one has gotten better and better. Last year’s Dominators storyline was solid, but the trailer for this year’s looks incredible!

Already slated to have upwards of 20 characters on-screen at a time, the 2-night, 4 show event will be covering the famed Barry-Iris wedding, one of the most famous in all of comic book history. The core story for this year revolves around an attack from the 53rd universe in the known DC world, Earth-X. Iris and Barry’s wedding is interrupted by an assault from Nazi’s and anti-heroes – including evil versions of Arrow, Flash and Supergirl, and it will take the full onslaught of CW’s full catalog, plus newcomer, The Ray, to save the day.

Supergirl kicks everything off on Monday, November 27th at it’s normal time slot, followed by a special Monday edition of Arrow. Flash and Legends will follow on Tuesday at their normal times, and we can’t wait!

 

ARROW adds Black Panther and GLOW actress

noel-social

After watching this past season of GLOW and the excitement for the upcoming Marvel Studios Black Panther, hearing this latest casting announcement news is AMAZING.

According to Variety, Sydelle Noel (GLOW) has joined the cast of Arrow: Season 6; she will play an FBI agent named Samanda Watson, who will be investigating Oliver Queen’s connection to the masked vigilante known as the Green Arrow. She will appear on the CW’s DC Comics-based series in a recurring capacity.

The show’s producers describe Noel’s character as an intelligent and no-nonsense investigator who will not rest until the truth about Green Arrow is revealed.

This announcement comes just after series producer Marc Guggenheim mentioned his desire to add more women to DCTV shows. Diversity and representation has become a key element to the Arrowverse, and Noel’s casting is just the latest example of that.

She will also join new season six regulars Juliana Harkavy and Katie Cassidy, who have portrayed the new and former Black Canary, respectively.

Noel has most recently appeared on Netflix’s GLOW, which was released in June. She is also set to appear in Marvel’s Black Panther movie as a member of the Dora Milaje. Introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, the Dora Milaje are the all-female bodyguards of the Wakandan royal family.

With its recaptured momentum that ARROW gained in Season 5, this is setting Season 6 to be another thrill ride.

Let us know what you think.

Legends of Tomorrow Adds American Odyssey Actress

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season 3 Adds AMERICAN ODYSSEY Actress Tala Ashe As Zari Adrianna Tomaz/Isis

The 3rd season of the Legends of Tomorrow is beefing up their new cast and this announcement is proof of that.

According to Deadline, Tala Ashe (American Odyssey, Smash, Law and Order)  has been casted as “Zari Adrianna Tomaz/Isis” and of course she will not be using that name (Isis). She will portray a very different incarnation of the character that was first introduced in DC Comics as Black Adam’s wife.  Here, Tomaz will be a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030, who becomes “grey hat hacktivist” in an attempt to combat “humanity’s fear, prejudice, and mistreatment of the planet.”

The Arrowverse has not shied away from any of the current social or political issues that have been going on and this here will more than likely be no different.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return to The CW Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET this fall.

Here’s a First Look at The CW’s Black Lightning

More like here is the first look of the upgraded Black Lightning.  Many people have been wondering what Cress Williams will look like after he dons the mask of the latest DC Comics hero to join the CW and it’s not bad at all.

If you’re unfamiliar, Black Lightning, aka Jefferson Pierce, was the first Black superhero to headline his own book at DC, after one of In the single worst ideas DC ever tossed around the bullpen was thankfully filed away. A gold medal Olympian and educator, he returned to Metropolis’ South Side (better known as Suicide Slum) with his family to run the local high school, and quickly discovers a need to beat up crooks at night. On the show, Lightning (played by Cress Williams) retired years ago, in part because he did more good during school hours than spending his nights punching gangsters, only to find his daughter is following in his footsteps. And if that weren’t enough, one of his students is being forcibly recruited by a gang, so out comes the power armor.

In theory, Pierce won’t be hanging out with Barry, Ollie, and the gang, but considering how often Kara pops in to say hi, we don’t expect that to last. Hopefully not her cousin though.  We’ll find out once the pilot is shot and the CW decides to take it to series.

Looks like your Trusty Sidekicks will be still be in business throughout this tv season and next.

Via Variety

The CW has renewed seven of its series for the 2017-18 season, Variety has learned.

The network has doled out early renewals to all its comic book franchises (“Arrow,” “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”) and to “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and “Supernatural.” The CW will also resurrect DC’s “Constantine” as an animated series starring the voice of Matt Ryan on digital outlet CW Seed, produced by Greg Berlanti.

“Over the past several seasons, The CW has built a schedule of proven performers, from our lineup of DC superheroes, to critically acclaimed comedies, to sci-fi dramas,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “Early pickups of these seven series now allow our producers to plan ahead for next season, and gives us a solid base to build on for next season, with original scripted series to roll out all year long.”
