More than a month after the Seventh Season finale, the CW Entertainment Network has cancelled DC’s “Legends Of Tomorrow” series. Below you’ll find the tweet sent out by showrunner Keto Shimizu. I’ll add more later on.
Thank you to our fans; your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider. ❤️
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.
It was interesting to find The CW Network making us wait so long for all of the superhero shows but now that there are something like six of them, it makes sense to parse them out to not overwhelm the viewers. If you’ve not been paying attention, we’ve already touched upon the premieres of “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “Black Lightning” and “The Flash” in posts of their own and ALL of these shows exist in the same universe of characters with the only exception being Black Lightning. Let’s take a glance at the cool season poster, the last season recap and some old and new casting.
Season 3 Recap: In season three, the team discover that they created anachronisms throughout time, and Rip has formed the Time Bureau to help fix them. Rip tells the team of the demon Mallus, whose follower Nora Darhk has resurrected her father Damien and Amaya’s granddaughter Kuasa, also recruiting Gorilla Grodd so that they can release Mallus from his prison by perverting history. The team loses both members of Firestorm, but is joined by Zari Tomaz, a hacktivist from 2042 whose air-controlling amulet is connected to Amaya’s totem, and Wally West / Kid Flash, a speedster formerly under the tutelage of the Flash.

Fans of DC Comics’ own “Hellblazer” and the relatively new “Constantine” title will be excited to learn that the NBC series “Constantine” will debut this evening. I snagged the logo and show poster for you to dig into and then we can discuss this in a little more detail.
Synopsis: The series will focus on John Constantine, a dark magician who is struggling with his past sins as he tries to protect humanity from a gathering supernatural threat. c/o Wikipedia.
Wow that was probably the briefest premise for a television show that I have ever shared with you readers. So yeah, Constantine is a dark mage and pretty much a bit of a knob with the occasional feeling bad about his actions as readers of the titles he has appeared in can attest to. I’ve been reading his often wayward adventures since he first appeared in “Swamp Thing” so many years ago and while “Hellblazer” was often a bit edgy of a read. That title ended with #300 and he resurfaced in both “Justice League Dark” and his own titled “Constantine” book. Fans of the mythos also saw Keanu Reeves portray a non-British, black haired “Constantine” in a feature film which was pretty not good. Let’s see how this new show pans out. I admit he does look more like the character in the poster below. Continue reading Airing Tonight: “Constantine” (10/24/2014)→
The other day Fox announced that “Gotham” was green lit to go to series and this show will feature the pre-history time of the city, its villains and a young, recently orphaned Bruce Wayne. It really looks interesting and earlier today it was reported that the CW Network has given the go ahead to the “Arrow” spinoff of “The Flash” along with a Vertigo Comics tale “iZombie”. I’ve little background on iZombie personally but know that Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen made an appearance on “Arrow” about a month ago during a two-part episode that left you with a cliffhanger that will surely be the perfect setup for a pilot episode. Check out the proposed costume that Grant is sporting below. I like it actually.
