It seems that Supergirl is officially getting another member to her team. Well it is a member that we knew was coming and now it’s a little more official.
On the television series’ own Twitter account, the network debuted an official poster teasing Mon-El’s Legion of Super-Heroes look. He also has his very own Legion flight ring. It appears that Mon-El (played by Chris Wood) we look very different from what we know of in the comic books.
In the comics, Mon-El is known to wear a costume similar to Superman’s, but with the colors inverted. His outfit is predominated by red with a blue cape, and a much smaller “S” crest on the left side of his chest. But they switched it up for the television series. Mon-El will be wearing a suit heavy on the dark blues, with only hints of red and gold on the chest portion. From what we can see it appears that he will have Kryptonian House of El logo in a bigger form. In a recent promo we see that the Legion will play a significant part in the second half of the season.
Supergirl returns Monday, January 15th on The CW.
Thunder as in Anissa Pierce, the daughter of the CW’s Black Lightning, played by Nafessa Williams. Black Lightning is the newest hero to come into the CW’s Arrowverse. It stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce, a retired crime fighter who lives his life as a family man and high school principal until inner city gang The 100 begin to terrorize the citizens once again. Black Lightning has to suit back up once again and save the city. But this time he is not alone is his fight. His daughters join him as well.
Anissa and her sister Jennifer (played by China Anne McClain) they both develop their own abilities that they inherited from their father who is a metahuman.
This series is high up on the must watch for 2018 and we cannot wait for its debut.
Black Lightning debuts, Tuesday January 16th on The CW.
If you weren’t already excited for the newest hero to hit your tv screens, this new trailer for sure should be a reason why.
We’re talking about the new trailer for the CW’s Black Lightning that dropped today and it’s jam packed. Set to the backdrop of Kendrick Lamar’s “backyard freestyle” we get a look at Krondon as Tobias Whale as well as James Remar as Peter Gambi. The series stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce a retired superhero turned high school principal who is brought back into the crimefighting.
Check out the trailer below and be sure to catch Black Lightning when it debuts on Tuesday, January 16th on The CW.
Its never really been a secret that Colton Haynes could once again don the red hood and take back up the mantle of Arsenal on the CW show Arrow. The biggest question was more specifically when it would happen. Earlier this year, Haynes took to social media to tease a possible return. Well it’s now confirmed that he’ll return to The CW series next year.
Now lets not get too excited and thinking that this may be a full on return. The actor is only coming back for a short arc that will kick off with the fifteenth episode and from a statement released it sounds like he may very well be used as a way of writing Willa Holland’s Thea Queen out of the series.
“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper,” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle said in a statement released today confirming the actor’s upcoming return to the show. “Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team. His short visit turns into something surprising when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences…”
This could be interesting both Speedy and Arsenal officially gone from Star City and absconding away to start a new life together. Well whatever is going to happen we will have to wait until the show comes back from its mid-season hiatus on January 18th.
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!
Could the scarlet speedster become the victim of a jackhammer? This is a question we will get the answer to because the WWE’s own superhero, Goldberg will be appearing on two upcoming episodes of CW’s The Flash.
The former WWE Universal Champion confirmed this himself via his Twitter.
Goldberg is not the first WWE Superstar to grace the ARROWVERSE. After his Summer Slam encounter with Arrow’s Stephen Smell, Cody Rhodes appeared on the show as the character Stardust (a nod to his WWE persona at the time).
Does this mean that Goldberg will potentially one of the new Metahumans created by the dark matter that struck the bus as part of a grand scheme by The Thinker? Will he be an adversary for Team Flash or Will he be a new barista at Jitters?
Guess we all just have to wait and see.
