A recent Television Critics Association that includes a number of executive producers from DC’s television division has delivered info on the fall crossover schedule for the CW Network. Network president, Mark Pedowitz shared that Supergirl and Arrow will take place on Monday, November 27th, while Flash and Legends will happen on Tuesday the 28th.

When asked why there would be a date change for Arrow, specific to the crossover, Pedowitz said, “We felt that it would be better and tighter in storytelling,” but also added, “Next year we may go back to four nights.” The event is still going on and a number of EPs have yet to speak on panels, so there still may be more info to come. We’re interested in your thoughts on a 2-day vs 4-day crossover. Let us know!

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.

We open with some info on our upcoming live broadcasts that you’ll find on Bidchat, then dive right into fresh news on Dr. Strange. We have info about how test screenings are going, along with the addition of Dan Harmon and how business impacts casting over all else. Captain Marvel narrows it’s director search and we discuss what each brings to the table, and we are excited about our comedy brother and Chicago’s very own, Hannibal Buress joining the Spider-Man cast. The Russo’s have info on the future of Chris Evans and we cover how Doug Liman’s new gig as director of Justice League Dark affects an already wobbly Gambit movie. We close out Marvel news with info on the exciting New Mutants movie.

On the DC side of things, the Arrowverse is teaming with news. We talk about the excitement over The Flash adding more and more speedsters, plus Wil Traval jumps from Marvel to a role on Arrow. Supergirl is getting Miss Martian but we don’t know who it is yet. We’re wondering just who may get the role in the human form!

Epic “Arrow-verse” teaser pics will get you EXCITED

heroboots.jpg

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell tweeted out this epic pic which may be a precursor of things to come on the EPIC 4-night crossover event featuring all of the shows within the “Arrow-verse” (Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl).

Now its way too early for them to be filming those particular episodes. So this may mean a select handful of heroes have been brought together for something (a photoshoot most likely) before that all goes down.

As seen above , Stephen Amell has shared an image of some famous feet as we see the footwear worn by Oliver Queen, The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), White Canary (Caity Lotz), and The Atom (Brandon Routh). This is a pretty fun tease of what’s to come on The CW, and with any luck, we’ll get to see what this impressive group were brought together for sooner rather than later.
