Greetings, Guys and Ghouls!
Ye Olde Dragon here, with some tidbits about the returning CW DC-TV Universe.
First up, we have the official dates for the Season Premieres of all four CW series.
Tuesday, October 4, 2016 – Flash Season 3
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 – Arrow Season 5
Monday, October 10, 2016 – Supergirl Season 2
Thursday, October 13 – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2
As for news about the shows, the only things we know for sure (so far) are:
Legends: A “new” Vixen and Citizen Steel join the crew, not to mention Hourman and the JSA!!
Arrow: So far, we have two new heroes(?) coming to Star City in Red Dog and The Vigilante (The Adrian Chase version from the 80s, NOT the Cowboy).
Supergirl: The BIG news is that SUPERMAN will be appearing, and NOT blurred out or as a kid in a fever dream.
The biggest news JUST came out from Grant Gustin himself:
Episode 1 of Season 3 is INDEED called Flashpoint. This is something that was suspected by every Flash Fan who’s been reading the comics for years, after Season 2’s season finale ended with Barry SAVING his mother from Reverse Flash, thereby changing history. In the comics, it changed everything DRASTICALLY and gave way to the now defunct New 52 DC Universe. My big questions for now are:
Will this be a season long story arc?
Will this go into the 4 part crossover story in December?
Will this unite the universes, bringing Supergirl into the Arrow/Flash continuity?
Will the “Flashpoint Effect” AFFECT the OTHER shows?
We’ll find out in October. But when there’s more revealed, I’ll let you know!
…End of Line…
