As I get ready for my final day at the New York Comic Con, its time to load up the posts about some of the season premieres that will be happening later on tonight. First up comes the brand-new series “Batwoman” which has its first season launch this evening on The CW Network. Those interested should check their local listings and if you are not too up on the characters, please take a look at our trailer post HERE to see what its all about. Batwoman will join a host of DC Comics characters that have a live-action series already (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning). I’ve also added the poster, premise and casting for good measure.
Back in May, I posted the “First Look” trailer for the upcoming CW Network series “Batwoman”. In the event that you missed that post you can click HERE to be up to date on this topic. The trailer looked rather interesting and now only a few short days from the first season premiere we’ve gotten “An Exclusive Look” clip. I’ve embedded it down below along with some premise, the casting and even one of the dramatic posters. Let’s go.
Joining the bevy of DC Comics superhero television shows that are currently airing on The CW Network comes “Batwoman”. A character that we all first “met” during the “Elseworlds” crossover that aired last season on “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Supergirl”. Her appearance was a brief but impacting one and I am glad that she will join the other shows as they continue to build a connected universe. The first look trailer is below and also some premise and casting. Let’s look shall we.
Though “Arrow” was the first of this group of DC Comics live-action superhero shows, it’s premiere comes after “The Flash”, “Black Lightning” and “Supergirl” which I found a little surprising. Anyway, the shows seventh season begins tonight and I’ve secured the dramatic poster along with a recap of the previous season doings and some casting. Let’s go.
Season 6 Recap: In season six, after an explosive battle on Lian Yu, Oliver must balance being a vigilante, the mayor, and a father to his son William. At the same time, new enemies emerge, initially led by hacker Cayden James, who puts together a team with drug dealer Ricardo Diaz, metahuman vigilante Vincent Sobel, Russian mobster Anatoli Knyazev, and Black Siren. As James loses control of his cabal, Ricardo Diaz comes to the fore, announcing to Green Arrow his scheme to take over Star City’s criminal underworld and control the city’s political infrastructure, all while Oliver must contend with his former teammates forming a rival team. As Diaz takes control of the city, Oliver is forced to recruit the aid of the FBI, in exchange for him publicly announcing his identity and going to federal prison. In the finale, Oliver is imprisoned in a supermax penitentiary. (c/o Wiki). Continue reading Tonight: “Arrow” Season 7 Premiere On The CW Network (10/15/2018)→
In 2018, we will all have another reason to be afraid to go into the water thanks to “The Meg” which is short for “Megalodon” which means giant frigging Great White Shark. I’ve had interest in reading the novel that this film is based on and the first trailer for the upcoming Warner Brother Pictures release is presented below for your perusal.
The Premise: After escaping an attack by what he claims was by a 70-foot shark, Jonas Taylor must confront his fears to save those trapped in a sunken submersible (c/o IMDB).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I loved this trailer and felt that it brings back some of the monster shark craze that hit when “Jaws” was release so many years ago. I read that book long before I saw it in the movies and even the book had me off water for awhile. Of course this fear didn’t apply to the bathtub despite my youthful insistence and parents, I fear we might find this sort of behavior resurfacing thanks to “The Meg”. Personally speaking, I love giant monster films and since Megalodon is an ancient predator he falls into that category when it comes to this film. I’m also a Jason Statham fan so look forward to seeing this one. What did you think of the trailer? Let me know down in the comments section below and to close out I’ve shared from teaser posters.
