Arrowverse Four-Night Crossover Gets a New Teaser Plus New Posters

The CW is about to make history with its epic four-night mega crossover event titled “Heroes Vs Aliens”. The crossover will see the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow all come together to take on the evil alien invaders, The Dominators. The Dominators are an Alien race interested in harnessing the metagene (the gene that gives metahumans their powers) to enhance members of their own species.

Ahead of the crossover event, The CW has released a new found footage teaser that suggests this isn’t the first time the evil aliens have made their way to Earth. Could the time traveling heroes of Legends be taking the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl back in time to prevent the alien threat from invading in the future??

Four new posters have also hit the web. The posters are rather serviceable as they feel a bit rushed in design and don’t feature the best photoshop, most notably the poster for Arrow.

The four-night crossover event begins at the end of Supergirl on Monday, November 28th, and will then carry over to The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday, and conclude on Legends of Tomorrow that Thursday night.

The crossover episode of Arrow also happens to be the series’ 100th episode and will see the return of many cast members including Katie CassidyJohn BarrowmanNeal Mcdonough, and Susanna Thompson.

David Ramsey On Diggle’s Reaction To Flashpoint Consequences

When Barry Allen returned from the alternate timeline of Flashpoint, he discovered things weren’t quite as he left them on Earth One. Iris (Candice Patton) and her father (Joe West) were estranged from one another after Iris had discovered her mother was still alive. In the original Earth One timeline the two had patched things up rather quickly but the new timeline had Iris still struggling with her loss of trust towards her father.

Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) also lost his brother Dante (Nicholas Gonzalez) in a drunk driving accident. But the consequences of Flashpoint weren’t limited to just the characters on The Flash. As Barry struggled to come to terms with the changes to Earth One, he ran over to Star City to get some advice from Felicity where he discovered John Diggle’s (David Ramsey) daughter Sara was no longer. Instead, Diggle had a son, John Diggle Jr., who we saw later took the name of Connor Hawke when he took up the mantle of Green Arrow in the future timeline on Legends of Tomorrow.

This past weekend Ramsey was in attendance at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest when he was asked what Diggle’s reaction would be when learning about the changes to the Earth One timeline:

“He’s going to be a lot more passionate than you think. Clearly, Diggle can’t miss something he’s never had so from his perspective there’s only been John Jr. — Sara never existed for him. I get a lot of questions like is he going to be angry? He’s not going to be angry, he’s going to be much more concerned about Barry’s misuse of his power. Which is a good story point. It’s a good place for Diggle and Barry to find some common ground in Barry’s own soul searching.”

You can look forward to seeing Diggle’s reaction to the consequences during the upcoming four-night crossover event.

The 4-night crossover event will begin at the end of Supergirl on Monday, November 28th, and will then carry over to The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday, and conclude on Legends of Tomorrow that Thursday night.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Arrowairs Wednesdays at 8 p.m., and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Willa Holland Teases The Return of Speedy on ‘Arrow’

Season four of Arrow was an abysmal year for The CW superhero series. But Willa Holland’s performance was a bright spot as her character, Thea, took up the mantle of Speedy and donned Arsenal’s red hood. Speedy hit the streets and fought alongside her brother, Green Arrow as his sidekick. She managed to take her role as a crimefighter seriously while still having fun and geeking out like any superhero fan would if they found themselves kicking butt in the Arrowverse. Something none of the newest member of Team Arrow have been able to do.

Unfortunately, after the team defeated Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Thea opted to hang up the hood and retire from her her life as a crimefighter. So far we have only seen Thea sport the red hood once this year when she felt she had no choice but to rescue her brother after he was kidnapped by Tobias Church’s lackeys in the first episode. Although her efforts were ultimately unnecessary, it was still great to see Willa back in costume. Since the first episode of season five, Thea has been busy serving as Oliver’s chief of staff and providing support to Quentin Lance while he grieves over the loss of his daughter, Laurel.

Thanks to the promotional photos for the upcoming four-night crossover event, Heroes Vs. Aliens, we know Thea will be suiting back up as Speedy to help the heroes of the Arrowverse take on the alien invaders, The Dominators. Holland was present this weekend at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest where she was asked whether or not she would be suiting back up as Speedy anytime soon and the actress teased the crossover might not be the last time we see her under the hood this year:

“The crossover photos have leaked out…You see that I put my costume back on after 8 episodes of not wearing it. I have a feeling she’s going to be periodically putting it back on whenever it’s necessary.”

With the looming threat of Prometheus and a (spoiler) traitor in the midst of the Arrow Cave, it seems like only a matter of time before Speedy dons the hood again.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

‘Arrow’: “Vigilante” Spoiler Review

Another serial killer is on the loose in Star City this week but this time it’s a more righteous one as the series gives way to the rising of Adrian Chase in his new superhero persona, “Vigilante”. The introduction of the episode which features Vigilante taking out several low-level criminals who are part of a human trafficking ring was serviceable, to say the least. More and more the series is starting to feel a lot like Supernatural as we witness opening scenes that feature the death of no name characters to serve as a plot device.

Team Arrow 2.0 is starting to improve, most notably Wild Dog and Ragman although I still can’t understand a word Ragman says when his mask is on. Wild Dog still has to work on his attitude but he’s come a long way since his beginning as a reckless punk. Curtis needs to start taking things seriously. While I still find him to be somewhat funny, his comedy is slowly beginning to teeter into Felicity territory. Considering the end of the episode, I’ll save Artemis for later.

Dolph Lundgren makes his second appearance in the flashbacks as the big bad, Konstanin Kovar. The flashbacks were a bit better thanks to his inclusion along with the reveal that Taiana’s mother is actually working for Kovar. The twist that Kovar has made a truce with the Bratva seemed to fatten things up a bit as well. We don’t usually get this much to chew on in the consistently half-baked flashbacks but this episode went against that grain. The end duel was a treat to see Oliver Queen basically taking on Ivan Drago but Oliver is still an extremely sloppy fighter. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense considering it’s now less than a year before he makes his grand return to Star(ling) City and rises up as The Hood against the criminal element plaguing his hometown. He’s going to have to undergo some serious training if the writers are planning not to completely botch the flashbacks altogether.

Thea and Lance shared a few touching scenes this episode that showed how close the two have grown since working together at City Hall. Thea was able to give Lance the support and the push he needs to stop drinking and get clean. Last week the series tried to trick us into believing that Prometheus is actually Lance but this episode seemed to point away from that. I don’t buy for a second that Lance is getting black out drunk and taking down squads of police and crime lords in a theatrical fashion.

Oliver is beginning to move forward in his personal life. While this plot is the least interesting of the episode it wasn’t bad at all. It’s good to see Oliver putting Felicity behind him even though I don’t think the relationship is going anywhere nor are he and Felicity finished with each other. The show is making it a point to capitalize on the awkward tension between Oliver and Felicity since they began seeing other people and it’s most definitely intentional. Even though Felicity distracts herself with Billy, she can’t hide the way she still looks at him in the Arrow cave.

After a group of serial bank robbers hit several banks, almost being wiped out by Vigilante, the team comes up with a clever plan to stage another robbery in order to draw Vigilante out. What threw me off was that the moment Diggle takes down the security guard both he and Felicity pulled their masks off. I’m assuming Felicity shut down the surveillance system off screen but it was still distracting. Regardless, Mr. Terrific’s blood is most certainly on the bank’s floor after Vigilante beat him bloody and took him hostage before Vigilante took on the Green Arrow in a duel. The fight itself was pretty good but a bit overshadowed by Green Arrow when he bested him before by pulling a cable arrow to zip line kick combo in the alley. Josh Segarra’s performance as Vigilante wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great either. The problem is the voice he put on to disguise his normal voice. It was like an awful impersonation of Christian Bale’s guttural voice as Batman.

Overall the episode was a step up compared to some of the episodes this season but that isn’t saying much. The show is going a bit back and forth between Prometheus’ true identity as Lance. After the seemingly major reveal last week, this episode attempted to shut that down only for Lance to go off to rehab, leaving his location in question shortly before Prometheus appeared at the closing of the episode which then delivered a big twist as Evelyn Sharp was revealed to be ally of Prometheus, working Team Arrow from the inside. The twist itself comes completely out of nowhere. Based on Evelyn’s past, it seems for likely that her motivations would pit her against a Prometheus type. Regardless, I’m just glad the twist wasn’t revealed through the show’s marketing campaign which loves to use spoilers as a desperate ploy to generate more interest in the show in order to boost ratings.

7.5 – OKAY
