Along with the announcement that Legends of Tomorrow’s encounters with the Justice society of America came the news that Rex ‘Hourman’ Tyler would be joined by Obsidian, Stargirl and Dr. Mid-Nite (the roles are, as yet, uncast).
They will be facing off against a collection of villains from Greg Berlanti’s DCTV Universe: Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Dahrk, Captain cold and Reverse-Flash.
Oh! There was also a first look trailer. Check it out after the break.
Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash) strikes again! The CW Network should just change its name to the CWGB or DCTV and be done with it. How many shows does Greg Berlanti and the gang at DC now have on the CW? They have their super hero tv formula down to a science now and it’s a formula that I love. In their latest spin-off Legends of Tomorrow, a bunch of secondary characters from Arrow and The Flash are brought together by rogue time traveller Rip Hunter (Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill) to form a team of time traveling heroes and villains whose goal is to stop the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).
As a guy who grew up with comics and remembers picking up Supergirl’s first ever comics appearance off of one of those ‘Hey, Kids! Comics!’ racks that used to be in grocery stores across the continent, I have to say that the pilot for Supergirl (Monday, 8:30/7:30C then weekly at 8/9C)) was something I was definitely looking forward to seeing.
Is it great? No, not quite. But it is very, very good.
The Flash: The Complete First Season is a welcome addition to the library of TV and movie superhero adventures. The (not surprisingly) fast-paced series was well received by critics, fanboys/girls and the general audience with equal enthusiasm.
The DVD/Blu-Ray sets provide a lovely package combining the show’s first 22 episodes and over three hours of special features.
