PiercingMetal Thoughts: Maybe it’s just me and maybe I am being a little too critical but I think that I was expecting a little bit more considering how long we’ve been hearing about the sequel to the hit “Wonder Woman” film from 2017. We’ve also been bombarded with news from the Marvel Studios side of the fence that’s only gotten fandom more and more excited about what is to come yet from the DC side they aren’t going out of their way to get us all juiced and rallying behind what is on the plan. Part of me feels if they don’t care why should I but let’s see if another few spins on said trailer make me more interested. What about you folks? Did this move you? Hopefully they will use their heads and put together a kicking 80’s soundtrack for the film. Let’s see what happens.

As a fan of the series of DC Comics superhero shows that air each and every week on The CW Entertainment network, one of the highlights is the crossover that brings these characters together for a unified cause. Some of the highlight crossovers for me was the “Crisis On Earth X” one and of course last year’s “Elseworlds” and now its time for the seeds that were planted in them to manifest in “Crisis On Infinite Earths”. The extended trailer was just revealed and the adventures begin this coming Sunday, December 8th. Take a look.

About The Crossover: “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is the upcoming sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event, featuring episodes of the live-action television series Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow on The CW. The Supergirl, Batwoman, and The Flash episodes will air in December 2019, while the Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow episodes will air in January 2020. Additionally, events in the Black Lightning episode “The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Earth Crisis”, airing between Batwoman and The Flash, will also tie-in to the crossover. A two-issue comic will also tie into the crossover, featuring characters and concepts not able to appear in the live-action episodes.
