The news that the CW was planning on adding another DC Comics-based showed to its growing pantheon of superhero series hardly came as a surprise, but what was surprising was the scope of this next project. Taking characters from both The Flash and Arrow, as well as DC characters never before portrayed in live-action, and putting them all under one roof, that was true ambition. We’ve been chasing rumors about this show since January, but now there’s confirmation that Legends of Tomorrow will be joining its mates on the CW this coming TV season. And on top of that, one of said Legends will be appearing in season finale of The Flash. (more…)

In the current TV climate, a spin-off combining characters from The Flash and Arrow in a new show is about as close to a sure thing as you can get. It was a few months ago that the CW first floated the possibility of another show to take place in this small screen DC Comics-universe, which if Supergirl also has tendrils to Arrow et al would make four series part of the same superhero universe on the air.

It’s official: I have absolutely no idea what this new entry into the shared Flash and Arrow DC TV universe is supposed to be. Last month it was announced that the CW was producing a spin-off of the superhero series’ combining characters from both shows: Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) from The Flash, and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and a character TBA (Caity Lotz) from Arrow. It wasn’t too long before Captain Cold’s cohort Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) was added to the cast with the promise of three more characters to come who have never before been portrayed on TV before, and now we know two: Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter.

Sometimes the winners of the People’s Choice Awards are programs that don’t exactly appeal to people with – what’s the word I’m looking for – “taste.” But sometimes taste makers and the omnivores of the TV universe agree on something, and this year, that something is the awesomeness of the CW series The Flash. At last night’s ceremony for the People’s Choice Awards (you may have already seen the clip of Captain America Chris Evans helping Betty White to the stage, re-certifying his volunteer merit badge in the process), The Flash beat out some strong competition to win the Favorite New TV Drama award. So the Fastest Man Alive is starting off the year right! Good thing, because as revealed by a new trailer, it’s a villain-palooza for 2015 in Central City. (more…)
