With Supergirl making the leap to The CW, it was inevitable that the show would need to go to drastic measures to ensure that those who tuned in on CBS followed the series to its new home. Adding Superman - a character who was only teased in the show's first season - to the mix is a smart way of achieving that, and producer Andrew Kreisberg has now shed some light on what we should expect. It definitely sounds as if this will be a Superman who is a lot more optimistic in nature, especially when compared to the version played by Henry Cavill in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This version of the hero has been operating for years too, so that should definitely add an interesting new dynamic to how we'll see his adventures now play out in the DC TV Universe. "I »

The CW's popular series, Arrow, started off with great promise. It was the story of one man's mission to protect his city. However, after following the stellar first season, it became clear that the producers had more comic book-like ambitions for the show. Season 2 introduced Barry Allen, and officially kicked off the rest of the CW's Arrow-verse, which now includes Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.
The showrunners certainly had their hearts in the right place (and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg even admitted that Arrow was a show they made to get to the Flash), but somewhere along the way, the thing that made Arrow such a great show was lost. No longer was it about a man's solo journey for redemption. All of a sudden, he was taking on assassin organizations, and ever five seconds, his secret identity was revealed to yet another character. Nowadays, everyone's »

A promo has arrived online for the upcoming third season of the hit DC series The Flash, entitled ‘Time Strikes Back’, which sees Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen trying to make sense of the new timeline he created in the season two finale; take a look below…
Until recently, 26 year-old Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police department. He was secretly in love with his best friend, Iris West (Candice Patton), daughter of Barry’s surrogate father, Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Joe adopted Barry fifteen years ago after Barry’s mother was murdered and Barry’s father, Henry Allen, received a life sentence for the crime – though Barry always maintained that a mysterious “Man in Yellow” was responsible. Then the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark matter lightning storm that struck Barry, »

Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers for Season 2 of The Flash CW Series.
If there's something that the CW series The Flash has done a good job of, it's planting little things throughout the show that either allude to future event or serve as nods to the source material (or other iterations of the source material). Last season saw Teddy Sears take on the role of the evil Zoom, and last season saw Barry finally defeat this big bad, only to let the Time Wraiths have their way with him.
Though it seemed like we'd seen the character's demise, we never actually did see his death. Of course, right after that episode aired, there were plenty of theories surrounding what had happened, and most fans seemed to agree that we may have witnessed the birth of the Black Flash, who is a character who brings speedsters to the Speed Force upon their death. »

When Zoom met his downfall during the season 2 finale of The Flash, not everybody seemed to notice the many subtleties of his transformation upon being attacked by Time Wraiths – some people I know certainly didn’t. The obvious change was in his skin, which no longer maintains much of a silky smooth quality. Those who blinked, however, may have neglected to see his lightning change from blue to red, as well as his logo changing to white and red, among other minor costume alterations.
Long story short, Hunter Zolomon has now taken on the persona of Black Flash, a character who is essentially Death when it comes to speedsters. This likeness has been adopted by a variety of people in the comics and, although the TV show is likely taking some liberties, I highly doubt many people will complain because the end result is usually pretty stellar when it comes to The Flash. »

Despite the fact that his plan was pretty much identical to that of the Reverse-Flash in The Flash's first season, Zoom still made for a great new rival for the Fastest Man Alive during the show's second year. However, he became even more intriguing after being transformed into the Black Flash during the finale, a story decision which seemingly set up some sort of return for the villain down the line. However, with Flashpoint, Dr. Alchemy, and Savitar all set to take centre stage during The Flash's third season, will there be room for the Black Flash? Based on comments from executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, it definitely sounds like the door is open for the villain to return at some point this year. "Obviously we did that on purpose," he said of Zoom's surprise transformation. "We love working with Teddy [Sears]. He’s such an amazing actor and amazing person, »
During the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this week, it was revealed that Kevin Smith will direct an episode of Supergirl when the show’s second season reaches The CW this Fall. Given his impressive work on The Flash a few months ago, that’s very exciting news, and the filmmaker has now revealed the title of the episode he’ll helm.
It doesn’t give away much in terms of story details, but fans of Smith’s career – and Superman in particular – should instantly recognize it.

“In our flashbacks in Russia — we’re set in Russia this season — we are going to be bringing in Dolph Lundgren as one of our big bads,” executive producer Wendy Mericle tells EW. “He is somebody we heard about in season 4. Kovar. We are going to bring him in and he’s going to be this super big badass guy who works for the Russian government, and is not a friend of Oliver or the Bratva. It’s part of Oliver’s promise to Taiana at the end of season 4 and it’s going to be interesting because it’s going to get complicated and very messed up very fast.”

Who would have thought that so many geeks’ dreams would become reality on the small screen rather than the big? I guess it’s highly appropriate that The Flash be the subject of so much of the talk coming out of the TCA press tour. After all, whenever there’s a major shakeup in the DC Universe, whomever is donning the Scarlet Speedster costume can usually be found at its epicenter.
By now, many of you know that the “Flashpoint” story arc will be adapted early on in the season. As I assumed, it won’t take up too much time so that everyone can get back to business as usual – for the most part. Speaking at the TCAs this week, CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed my suspicions with the following statement (via Comic Book Movie):
“The Flashpoint exercise is only for a couple episodes before it comes back in. »

During Thursday's Television Critics Association press tour, we got a surprising new update about the growing cast of superheroes on The CW. At one point during a panel, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that one of the shows' characters would come out as gay in the upcoming season. "One of the characters on one of the shows is going to be exploring their sexuality and coming out," he said. "We're very excited about that." To pique interest even further, executive producer Greg Berlanti teased the development as well: "It is a significant character . . . The only reason we wouldn't [say] is we really want the audience to enjoy the character developments and not necessarily be ahead of the storyline." In case you're not fully aware, there are four superhero-centric shows airing on the network to date: the endlessly badass Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Given the fact that »

Legends of Tomorrow season two has been slowly putting together the Justice Society of America for a while now, and Comic Book Resources reveals that the latest addition is Lance Henriksen (The Terminator) as Obsidian. Introduced in the pages of All-Star Squadron #25 in 1983, the character became part of the Jsa in 2007 and has the ability to merg with his own shadow so he can fly, pass through solid objects, and even possess other people's shadows (making him pretty formidable). The version of the team we'll see in Legends of Tomorrow includes Patrick J. Adams as Hourman, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Vixen, Matthew MacCaull as Commander Steel, and Sarah Grey as Stargirl. In other DC TV news, Andrew Kreisberg revealed at today's TCA panel that one of the characters in this world will be coming out at some point later this year. Greg Berlanti meanwhile added: "It is a significant character. The »
With Supergirl joining The CW's superhero show lineup alongside Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, there's a lot of DC Comics action going down at the network. Greg Berlanti and his fellow Dctv producers Aaron and Todd Helbing, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler, Sarah Schechter, Marc Guggenheim, Wendy Mericle and Phil Klemmer sat down at the Television Critics Association summer press tour to discuss what to expect on all four shows this fall and beyond. They teased a huge coming out for a major character, The Flash's new big bad, Supergirl's new superhero, Arrow's final flashbacks, Legends' newest cast member and more. Read on to find out the juiciest tidbits they revealed: -On the character »
During the DC TV portion of The CW's TCA panel today, The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed reports that season three will feature two villains. The first will indeed be Dr. Alchemy, but he'll be joined by yet another speedster in the form of Savitar. While it wasn't made official, you have to believe that's he's the guy we saw squaring off with Wally West in those recent set photos. Whether or not he'll be a villain just in "Flashpoint" or throughout the entire season remains to be seen, but in the comic books, he has a very long and bizarre history which you can find here. However, arguably even more exciting than all of this is the fact that Kreisberg revealed the following about the return of fan-favourite bad guy Gorilla Grodd. "Yes, we’re going to be doing a two-part episode that takes place in Gorilla City. »
The CW really isn’t fooling around today when it comes to news pertaining to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Despite having an all-star team of superheroes leading the charge each week, that doesn’t mean the producers are afraid to squeeze in a few more guests culled from around the DC Universe.
ComicBook.com reports that legendary genre actor Lance Henriksen has been cast to play Obsidian, a member of the Justice Society of America. They’re quick to point out that an older actor was cast because this iteration of Obsidian’s heyday was during World War II and the crew of the Waverider will be meeting a present day or future version of him. Whether or not he’s the son of Green Lantern Alan Scott remains to be seen.

So many announcements, so little time. At the Television Critics Association press tour, the people behind The CW programs Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow broke a whole volume of news regarding what fans can expect during the shows’ upcoming seasons. Perhaps the biggest item is that a much-discussed (and frequently denied) musical crossover between Supergirl and The Flash is on, slated for the back-half of the season. Ep Greg Berlanti, who said he lives “at the nexus of loving musicals and loving superheroes,” explained that the material will be mostly cover tunes as opposed to original songs. The other significant item of note, according to Andrew Kreisberg, Ep of all four series, is that one of the characters will explore their sexuality and coming out of the closet. When pressed for more information on who that might be, no details were given. There were also other significant »

The CW will introduce a gay character on one of the network’s superhero shows this upcoming season.
Greg Berlanti and the executive producers of “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” made the announcement on Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The character will appear in one of the four shows, though the panel did not reveal which series.
“One of the characters will be exploring their sexuality and coming out,” exec producer Andrew Kreisberg announced during the mega-superhero panel.
“It is a significant character,” Berlanti said. “We’re not trying to be coy about it…we just really want the audience to enjoy the character development and not be ahead of the storyline.”
Staying mum on details, exec producer Sarah Schehcter quipped, “It’s a man or a woman, and it’s on one of the four shows.”
The news comes shortly after CW president Mark Pedowitz »
