The DC Fandome is pulling out all the stops or as many as they can fit into this virutal convention and now they have revealed a run of posters for the upcoming DC Comics superhero shows that air on The CW Network in advance of the happening itself. These shows were commonly referred to as “The Arrowverse” but with the death of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen in the finale of his series I guess they will be changing that. I’ve offered up some personal opinion on the assorted series and how they are or are not keeping my attention at this point in time.
The Flash: For me The Flash is starting to run on empty. The storylines are too drawn out for me, and as opposed to lengthy goes with one master villain, I’d love for more assorted characters. Full seasons of Thinker and Cicada were too much for me and DC Comics often had other heroes villains facing them. Marvel does this all the time so take a queue. I still like it though.

As a fan of the series of DC Comics superhero shows that air each and every week on The CW Entertainment network, one of the highlights is the crossover that brings these characters together for a unified cause. Some of the highlight crossovers for me was the “Crisis On Earth X” one and of course last year’s “Elseworlds” and now its time for the seeds that were planted in them to manifest in “Crisis On Infinite Earths”. The extended trailer was just revealed and the adventures begin this coming Sunday, December 8th. Take a look.
About The Crossover: “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is the upcoming sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event, featuring episodes of the live-action television series Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow on The CW. The Supergirl, Batwoman, and The Flash episodes will air in December 2019, while the Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow episodes will air in January 2020. Additionally, events in the Black Lightning episode “The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Earth Crisis”, airing between Batwoman and The Flash, will also tie-in to the crossover. A two-issue comic will also tie into the crossover, featuring characters and concepts not able to appear in the live-action episodes.
Fans of the “Black Lightning” series on The CW Network will be excited about the news of the shows return and tonight immediately following the season premiere of “The Flash” we can get right into its second season. I’ve embedded the cool poster, some premise and overall casting to refresh your memory and perhaps entice new viewers in. Check it out.
As the fourth and final day of the 2018 Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC) draws to its close, I am continuing to showcase the trailers that hit yesterday from The CW Television Network. You’ve probably already noticed that there have been quite a few trailer posts going live over the last couple of days and if you haven’t, then you should click HERE for the rundown of these narratives. This one gives us the preview of the DC Comics character Black Lighting. Let’s look.
The Premise: Jefferson Pierce, who retired from his superhero persona Black Lightning nine years ago after seeing the effects it had on his family, is forced to become a hero again when the rise of the local gang The One Hundred leads to increased crime and corruption in his community.

Premise: When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that the DC Universe animated movies are miles ahead of anything that they have released on the big screen that feature some of our favorite superheroes. Of course as a faithful comics fan to canon, I get a little rant going when too many liberties are taken. This trailer looks great but I did have one qualm as a reader of the original issues as they played out. When Doomsday fought the Justice League, he did so while half secured in the suit you see him in. He only had one arm free and he pretty much wiped out the League. It was a testament to the creatures unbridled power that he could and did beat the Justice League as a whole with one arm tied behind his back. Anyway, that’s just me bitching and moaning. The plot of this one is pretty self-explanatory because in the comics Superman did die. It will be interesting to see this scene played out in an animated film. What do you think of this trailer? Chime in down below.
