In the aftermath of capturing (Evil) Rip Hunter, The Legends struggle in two different “Lands of the Lost” on this week’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Ever since Rip Hunter has come back to the show, he hasn’t been “our” Rip. He had his memory fractured by the energy of the Wave Rider and then after receiving a lobotomy and brain restructuring by the Legion of Doom, he was remade into an evil version of himself. It was almost a “Mirror Universe” of himself as he joined the Legion of Doom and the Dark Side of Rip proved to be one of The Legends worst enemies. He knew not only all their weaknesses, but he also was one step ahead of them. Lucky for them, they managed to finally stop him last week in ancient Arthurian times and made him their prisoner. We should have known by the end of the last episode that he would once again gain the upper hand.


Last week on Legends of Tomorrow, we had such a tongue-in-cheek episode where the Legends needed to save George Lucas, as Star Wars was responsible for the creation of at least two of the Legends and their heroics (and probably countless others throughout history). This week, however, the show the show went back to its more serious, more dark roots. Not only did we get torture, but family drama, and all sort of other big issues.


Just before the mid-season finale of Legends of Tomorrow, we finally caught a sight of Rip Hunter. Rip, who has pretty much non-existent this season (sans a “farewell” hologram he sent to the Legends), so it was a little bit of a surprise that in last December’s episode “The Chicago Way”, he’s alive and well and living in the late 1960, and he no longer had his British accent.

This week gives us not only an explanation for what happened to Rip and how it plays to current events with the Legends ad the Legion of Doom, but we get a whole bunch of awesome Star Wars Easter Eggs and tongue-in-cheek references. Rest assured, spoilers for this week’s episode “Raiders of the Lost Art.”



This week, the DC CW Universe unleashed their 4 (really 3) night crossover titled Invasion! Each night was a ratings high for each of the shows as each night Supergirl (not really), The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow had to work together to save the world from The Dominators. Each episode was jam-packed. You can see our reviews for The Flash (here) and Supergirl (here) for our thoughts on the individual episodes.



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.



DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is amping up for it’s second season this autumn, and more information is trickling out to let fans know about what they can expect to see. The show, which was created as a spinoff to both Arrow and The Flash, gives spotlight to superheroes (and, well, supervillains turned super-anti-heroes) who were not the center stage of the previous two shows, including The ATOM (Brandon Routh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Firestorm (Franz DramehVictor Garber), and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée). They are brought together as a team by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), as they travel through time fighting evil that threatens the fabric of reality. The concept will be expanded upon in season two, and a few faces familiar to comic fans will be appearing. (more…)

Black Lightening

Super producer Greg Berlanti has been on a roll in the superhero world. The man has made it so that we have a DC Comics show on almost every day of the week on the CW network. We already have Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and now have Supergirl coming over from CBS this fall. With all the “Arrowverse” shows under one roof, we’re also getting crossover shows for each of those characters working together as well. Needless to say, Berlanti is now the king of network superheroes… and he’s not done yet.


Stephen Amell Teases Arrow Season 5 on Twitter

Arrow s4 promo

Production on the fifth season of CW’s Arrow has begun, as confirmed by the show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who teased fans with a shot of the script from the season’s first episode on July 5th. The episode titled ‘Legacy’ may imply some rather heavy themes not only in the sense of the story, but also the show’s production itself. During a Q&A session on June 26th at the Heroes & Villains FanFest in Secaucus, N.J., Amell was quoted as saying, “The first two episodes [of Season 5] refocuses us on what the core mission of the show should be, and that to me is very exciting,” this is in reference to the series straying from it’s ‘street hero’ roots during the last two seasons, which had some fans complaining. Now it seems season 5 will grant them their wish, and Stephen has given us our first sneak peek.



Spoilers ahead from last night’s Legends of Tomorrow episode “Destiny.”

Ever since he showed up on The Flash actor Wentworth Miller has been a breath of fresh air for CW’s superhero shows. At first, his character Leonard Snart, aka “Captain Cold” joined the show as a career criminal who gained access to one of STAR Lab’s weapons, the Cold Gun. Since then, he has towed the line between criminal and anti-hero. There were some times where he would help The Flash, but other times where he would eventually betray everyone to serve his own selfish interests. The former Prison Break actor also played the character with a unique level of depth that surely made him a fan favorite.
