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.
Though the New York Comic Con might be over, there is still a lot of geeky awesome to entertain us in terms of the comic series announcements and season premieres of shows like the previously discussed “Batwoman” and the fifth season of “Supergirl” which premieres tonight on The CW Network. I’ve snagged the season poster along with a recap of the fourth and much of the main and guest cast for your consumption. Let’s go.
Season 4 Recap: In the fourth season, Kara deals with a new wave of anti-extraterrestrial prejudice secretly instigated by Lex Luthor from prison, forcing her to fight for the civil and political rights of aliens. Ben Lockwood, a former college professor who suffered a series of personal tragedies at the hands of extraterrestrials, forms a human-first group called the Children of Liberty to end all aliens. Meanwhile, in the nation of Kasnia, a clone of Kara dubbed “Red Daughter” is trained by its military to fight Supergirl at Lex’s request. Kara and Alex rival with the DEO’s new addition, Col. Lauren Haley, who was sent to monitor the DEO’s progress under Alex’s direction. Col. Haley and the President try to force Supergirl to reveal her identity, and clash with her and Alex when she refuses.

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)→
It was recently revealed that actor Tyler Hoechlin (from MTV’s “Teen Wolf”) would be portraying the part of Superman on the CW Network’s “Supergirl” show. Previous show viewers might recall that CBS dropped the program from its schedule and The CW picked it up. They are under the same umbrella anyway and this move makes the most sense. Its better than losing the show altogether. Yesterday Geekdom got their first full look at Tyler in the red and blue. Check it out below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It seems as though we are sticking with the lack of the red trunks for the Superman suit and I am still not sure how I feel about that since the original look was so iconic for the character but I guess I can get over that. I think the look is good but there is such a difference in the actors between the television and film renditions that I think will get annoying to me. They should have looked for an actor that resembled a younger Henry Cavil in some sense since he is the one we are seeing in all the films. It would have built more consistency in viewers minds. I am 50/50 on the inclusion of Superman in the Supergirl show as well. I preferred him being someone who was referenced and off handling bigger threats and feel that by adding him to the mix that Supergirl is lessened in importance. Yes they are both Kryptonians and have the same invulnerable physiology but Superman has been at the game a lot longer and hence better at resolving all of the potential issues. This is just my deep comic book geek speaking out. What do you readers think of the characters inclusion and how this actor looks in the costume? Let me know in the comments below. I am very much looking forward to the season and hope for more crossovers with the other shows.
