The WOW factor for the annual Arrowverse crossover keeps happening. First it was annouced that Black Lightning and other characters from the show will be involved in the annual event now another blockbuater announcement was revealed today at the TCA’s.
Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES as its spinoffs, will join the cast of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman . Many have argued that even thougg not physically seen on screen he is the best Batman of all time. The addition of Conroy comes along with announcements that Burt Ward (Batman) would appear, and Brandon Routh would reprise his role from SUPERMAN RETURNS.
“CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS ” will be the biggest crossover event that The CW’s DC Universe TV series have attempted yet, with five series (ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, and BATWOMAN). The story will, at least according to the onscreen canon established so far and comments by cast and producers at Comic Con, feature the death of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who struck a mysterious deal with The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett during last season’s “ELSEWORLDS” crossover in order to save the lives of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who were “destined” to die in the event.
The CW is gearing up for what is arguably going to be the biggest crossover ever with its Arrowverse shows in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. The shows that are the foundation for this are ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW.
One show that is notably missing from the list is THE CW’s BLACK LIGHTNING. The show starring Cress Williams centered around Jefferson Pierce a former superhero turned high school principal who is brought back into the fight to save his hometown of Freeland and daughters as Black Lightning. He is also aided in his vigilante battle by his two superpowered daughters and his doctor wife. They all battle against the villainous Tobias Whale and other metahumans.
Many people were wondering whether or not the show would cross over into the arrowverse fold or would the titular hero even be part of the crossover and now we may have our answer.
In an article from FANDOMWIRE.COM is seems that is prettt much official that Black Lightning will be making an appearance in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. Cress Williams seelingly has confirmed this via his twitter.
It is being stated that Black Lightning will not have a major role but his will be similar to that of Batwoman’s in last years, ELSEWORLDS.
Black Lightning Season 3 is set to air on October 21, 2019, and will see Cress Williams (Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning), China Anne McClain (Jennifer Pierce / Lightning), Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce / Thunder), and James Remar (Peter Gambi).
Are you excited for this potential blockbuster news and how do you hope for it to play out?
Shooting for season six of the CW’s THE FLASH is currently filming season six in Vancouver, British Columbia new photos from the set reveal Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) will be donning a new suit when the show returns later this year. We can safely this is from the designs that Cisco left for her at the end of Season five.
It is less than a month away until the 50th anniversary of San Diego Comic Con is upon us. One of the notable things will be the heavy WBTV presence throughout Ballroom 20. With that one of the focuses will be be that of the CW’s Arrowverse.
The reason for this is not only will it be the eighth and final season of ARROW but also is the mega CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover. This will bring together BATWOMAN, ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and no one is sure yet if BLACK LIGHTNING will fall into the fray.
We dont know fully what to expect yet in regards to the crossover or their respective shows but it seems as though we may have a bit of a tease from Arrowverse executive consultant and former ARROW showrunner Marc Guggenheim. Guggenheim took to Twitter to tease of the potential Crisis-size announcement.
There had been much speculation as to who Idris Elba would be portraying in James Gunn reboot/sequel THE SUICIDE SQUAD. Now it seems as if the guessing game is over as it is being reported that Elba will be Brock Turner a.k.a BRONZE TIGER.
Forbes is reporting the character for the British actor. now Bronze Tiger has already been seen within the DC television universe. He is portrayed by Michael Jai White in Arrow and he is known for being a member of Task Force X also known as the Suicide Squad. Turner is also one of the greatest martial artists in the DC Universe, a member of the League of Assassins, and has something of a frenemy relationship with Deathstroke.
Now of course there will be a Deathstroke in the DC Universe TITANS season 2 but the merc was portrayed by Joe Manganiello in JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Idris Elba can be seen this summer in the upcoming HOBBS AND SHAW film with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD is set to hit theaters in August 2021
The craziest and zaniest show within the Arrowverse is back in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. After a mid-season break the time traveling crew is back continuing on their journey of tracking down magical creatures. Before the madness begins we get to see the crew give us their best impression of The Flash, Green Arrow and Supergirl.
Along with that in the two-minute promo we get a look at the Legends’ upcoming adventures, which seem to involve lucha libre, a superhero-themed Bollywood musical and even a trip to Disney World with Richard Nixon. Even though there will be much “fun had” it doesn’t stray away from the Legends main goal and that’s stopping Neron and his attempts to open up the gates of hell.
Have a look at the sizzle reel and join the Legends when they return on Monday April 1st 8 pm ET/PT on The CW
Last night was the finale of the Annual Arrowverse crossover. This year’s theme was ELSEWORLDS and throughout all three episodes the running theme was The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett) telling that a “Crisis was coming”. Well we now know what that is leading to as it was teased in the finale of the crossover on Supergirl.
Check out the teaser below
Yes, we are getting the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline. Which officially connects several items mentioned throughout The Flash. We have seen the news paper article since season 1 that talks about the Flash missing and vanishing in a “crisis”.
Also how in this current season, Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) mentions about how the Flash went missing. Clearly when it comes to the crossover next year, Psycho Pirate will play a key role with Doctor Deegan as he is the one that utters to Deegan in Arkham, ” Worlds will live, Worlds will Die and the universe will never be the same.”
Are you excited for the potential culmination of all of the breaches, crossovers and maybe in the inclusion of ALL of the DC television heroes that may include both Black Lightning and Titans possibly even Doom Patrol?
