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.
It was interesting to find The CW Network making us wait so long for all of the superhero shows but now that there are something like six of them, it makes sense to parse them out to not overwhelm the viewers. If you’ve not been paying attention, we’ve already touched upon the premieres of “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “Black Lightning” and “The Flash” in posts of their own and ALL of these shows exist in the same universe of characters with the only exception being Black Lightning. Let’s take a glance at the cool season poster, the last season recap and some old and new casting.
Season 3 Recap: In season three, the team discover that they created anachronisms throughout time, and Rip has formed the Time Bureau to help fix them. Rip tells the team of the demon Mallus, whose follower Nora Darhk has resurrected her father Damien and Amaya’s granddaughter Kuasa, also recruiting Gorilla Grodd so that they can release Mallus from his prison by perverting history. The team loses both members of Firestorm, but is joined by Zari Tomaz, a hacktivist from 2042 whose air-controlling amulet is connected to Amaya’s totem, and Wally West / Kid Flash, a speedster formerly under the tutelage of the Flash.

Hey did you miss me? You had to know that I would be coming back with a quick summary about this evenings third season premiere of “Legends Of Tomorrow” which will air immediately after tonight’s episode of “The Flash” which has its own fourth season premiere and was discussed on THIS LINK if you missed it. If there is one thing that the New York Comic Con leaves us fans with, its a bevy of shows that are right up our alley. Down below you will see the “OFFICIAL POSTER” and I’ve snagged some Season 2 refresher and casting for you before tossing in my own thoughts on the matter. Here we go.
Season 2 Recap: In season two, with the Time Masters defeated, the team are left to guard the timeline themselves, and learn to cope in Rip’s absence after he disappears. However, they are continually plagued by the Legion of Doom, a time-travelling supervillain team led by Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne), who has recruited past versions of Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Leonard Snart to help him find the Spear of Destiny of Biblical fame, with which they can rewrite their fates. The team is joined by new members Amaya Jiwe / Vixen, an African superhero from 1940s superhero team the Justice Society of America, and Nate Heywood / Steel, a modern-day historian with the power to become solid metal.

I’m continuing along with the trailer reveals by The CW Television Network that came care of last weeks Comic Con International: San Diego or “SDCC”. There were quite a few of them so it was better to give you one per day alongside the other posts that are set to go online. To say that I’ve got my DVR running overtime with all of the shows that feature the colorful DC Comics characters would be an understatement. Let’s see, I think that I am recording five from The CW alone and there are more on other networks as well. I’m up to “Legends Of Tomorrow” which will begin its third season this October and is the final show in the Arrowverse as we know it. Check it out.

I hope you are not tired of the DC Comics related television shows on The CW Network because we have come to the second season premiere of “Legends Of Tomorrow” which will air this evening. It’s a time-hopping good time with a few minor bumps along the road but let’s check out some premise and casting and then I will toss in my two cents.
About The Show:
After the murder of his family by immortal dictator Vandal Savage, time master Rip Hunter travels back in time to the present day where he brings together a team of heroes and villains (Atom, White Canary, Firestorm, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Captain Cold, and Heat Wave) in an attempt to prevent Savage from destroying the world. However, they are opposed by the Time Masters, an organization from the future dedicated to protect and manipulate the timeline as they see fit and a body to which Hunter had sworn allegiance. During their early adventures, they are hunted by the Time Masters’ agent Chronos. (thanks Wiki). Continue reading Tonight: “Legends Of Tomorrow” 2nd Season Premiere on The CW (10/13/2016)→
