CW

SDCC 2018: TV Trailers Overflow at Comic Con

Comic Con is often remembered for the big panels in Hall H, the massive studio presence by companies like Marvel, and the fans.  When Marvel announced they would not have the usual massive presence many worried that the behemoth that is SDCC might be slowing down in its old age (next year the con turns 50).  Nothing could have been further from the truth.

Along with news of tentpole films like Aquaman, WonderWoman84, and Godzilla King of Monsters there were also a lot of great new trailers for shows like Doctor Who, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Walking Dead franchise.

Sometimes those big reveals overshadow some other shows worthy of attention.

Here are a just a few of the TV trailers that premiered over the weekend.

POW! The Arrow-verse To Meet Batwoman in Gotham

In Detective Comics #233 (July 1956) a new character joined the pantheon of characters.  DC introduced a female counterpart to Batman, Batwoman.  Originally created to be a love interest for Batman who had a utility purse instead of the belt Batman wore.  She had weapons disguised as feminine products such as lipstick, compacts, charm bracelets and hairnets.  The character was removed from the series when Batgirl/Barbara Gordon was created.  But Kathy Kane would return to the comics, and now it looks like she’ll be coming to TV screens too.

One thing that was noticeably missing from season two of Supergirl was her mentor at CatCo, Cat Grant. It’s mostly due to the reason that production was from CBS’ cozy Los Angeles location in season one, to the CW’s Vancouver production location, and actress Calista Flockhart either did not want to move, or didn’t want to have one hell of a commute to work, so her character Cat Grant was written to take a “leave of absence” from the show. She did return toward the end of the second season as the Daximite invasion was going on, and she also clearly knew Kara was Supergirl (why doesn’t everybody, it’s just glasses), so there’s a lot more for Cat Grant to do. So, would she be on the show for the third season?

The CW Has Found Its Black Lightning!

One of the earliest African American superheroes in DC comics, Black Lightning‘s first story was published in 1977. Forty years later, The CW has finally offered the hero the pilot for his own television series, after it was passed up by Fox. With Salim Akil directing the pilot, Mara Brock Akil and Greg Berlanti on board to develop the character and Sarah Schecter also involved in executive production, the show is now well under way in terms of production and it’s now only a matter of time before we finally get to see Black Lightning on screen.

legends_of_tomorrow

One of the coolest things about the “Arrowverse” is that almost every day this week, you get to see a DC TV show on the CW. On Mondays, you get a new episode of Supergirl. One Tuesdays, you get a new episode of The Flash. On Wednesdays, you get a new episode of Arrow. Finally, on Thursday, you get a new episode of Legends of Tomorrow. It’s great because no matter what, you’ll be able to experience a DC adventure almost every day of the week. However, when shows return after their mid-season break, there will be some shifting around.

When season two of The Flash ended, Barry did the unthinkable and reset time. By preventing the killing of his mother by the Reverse Flash, he knew he would be changing fate. No longer will his father be accused of her murder and he will no longer be raised by Joe West. Everything is about to change. It’s already been confirmed that the third season of the show will be loosely adapting the “Flashpoint Paradox” storyline from the comic book. In the comic book, Barry resets time only to discover that he’s in an alternate timeline where he had no powers, there was no Justice League, and Bruce Wayne was killed as a child and Batman ended up as his father.  If the show follows the comic book, everything’s going to change.
