The DC Television Universe continues to expand and connect with apparent ease while their film universe often leaves fans of the stuff very nervous about what could come. The CW is home to a number of awesome heroes like Green Arrow (who’s show ends with this current season), The Flash, Supergirl and the Legends Of Tomorrow and now Stargirl will be joining into the mix. Let’s take a look at the first trailer for the upcoming series.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I liked the look of this series from the quick clip and from the casting lined out very early on, I am impressed with the inclusion of the Justice Society of America in the show. Since there is a second listing of characters with these names I am going to guess that we are going to find the All-Star Squadron appearing as well. I liked both teams and was a regular reader of the comic book series that ran in the eighties and nineties. I will hope that this series crosses into the Arrowverse so let’s see what happens. Did you readers enjoy the trailer clip? Chime in down below and don’t forget that once the brand-new year gets underway, there is another installment in the struggling DC Extended Universe with “Birds Of Prey and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn”.
