‘The Flash’: “Invasion” Clip; Producers Preview

The four-night crossover event officially began at the end of Supergirl last night Well, sort of… The crossover will feature the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow coming together to take on the evil alien invaders, The Dominators. The Dominators are an Alien race interested in harnessing the gene that gives metahumans their powers to enhance members of their own species.

Ahead of tonight’s episode of The Flash — which is technically part two of the crossover but really the beginning — The CW has released a clip which has all of the heroes trying to decide just who exactly is in charge as the heroes take on their greatest challenge yet. It’s going to be interesting see the three major teams from their respective shows learn how to work together in effort to save the world.

Executive producer Todd Helbing takes us inside the episode to give us a preview of the formation of the super-team, teasing The Dominators as the creepiest thing you’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t quite describe them as the creepiest things ever but they are sure are ugly.

The Flash airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Part three of the four-night crossover will continue tomorrow night on Arrow before concluding Thursday night on Legends of Tomorrow.

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.

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

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.

Kevin Feige on The Defenders Appearing in the MCU

At the recent press junket for Doctor Strange, Collider’s Steve Weintraub A.K.A. Frosty spoke with Kevin Feige about what it would take for one Marvel’s Netflix heroes to appear alongside the heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

At the recent press junket for Doctor Strange, Collider’s Steve Weintraub A.K.A. Frosty spoke with Kevin Feige about what it would take for one Marvel’s Netflix heroes to appear alongside the heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

KEVIN FEIGE: I think it’s extremely impressive what Netflix has done and it will be the same answer I always give, which is, “It all depends on timing.” It all depends on how to do it because I don’t think what anybody wants to do is have such important characters show up for one second. Black Panther and Spider-Man to me are the high bar in Civil War of how you can bring in new characters into something. Vision and Ultron, Wanda and Pietro in Ultron. And it takes a lot of screentime, and it takes a lot of work. Infinity War has a lot of people in it already. So it just depends on how we could figure it out.

While I would love to see any of The Defenders — or one of the villains for that matter —   in a Marvel movie (cough cough, Kingpin), my concern is that there would be a tonal clash. It’s not that I don’t think they could work in a movie, it’s that the Netflix corner of the MCU would obviously earn itself an R-rating — or in this case a TV-MA rating if it were to air on Network television. For it to work Marvel would need to strike a balance between the dark, moody, and violent tone of the Netflix shows with the shiny coke and popcorn flavor of the MCU. I also think it would work better if The Defenders were to crossover with a solo Captain America, or Spider-Man film — not with The Avengers. It would end up being exactly what Feige is saying he doesn’t want to be. The Defenders would need to play a key role and serve a crucial purpose for it to feel organic.

If it were to happen — and for it to work, Marvel would need the right director, or possibly directors. But I think they already have the right guys in the mix. If anyone could do it, it would be The Russo Brothers. I think it’s evident in the tone of the scene when (spoiler alert) Winter Solider kills Tony Stark’s parents. It had the same dark mood that is consistent with all of Marvel’s Netflix series.

What do you guys think? If you could hand pick a director to cross The Defenders over with the MCU, who would it be and why?

‘Arrow’ EP Marc Guggenheim Gives New Details on CW Crossover Event

Two weeks ago executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that this year’s D.C. crossover event will see ArrowThe FlashSupergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow team up against The Dominators. In the comics the alien race was interested in harnessing the metagene (the gene that gives metahumans their abilities) to enhance members of their own race.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marc dished on the upcoming crossover which he said will be the most ambitious filmmaking in the history of network television.

This year, we’re doing by far the most ambitious crossover we’ve ever done. It’s basically a huge three-part story that also brings in Supergirl, so it’s crossing over all four shows. It’s telling one big epic movie of a story. It’s not setting up any other spin-offs, it’s just big, bombastic, huge action. There’s also some really poignant character moments. There’s a lot of plot lines, particularly I would say in Flash and Legends, that come to fruition in the crossover. It’s by far the most ambitious thing we’ve ever attempted. I want to say it’s by far one of the most ambitious things anyone in network television has ever attempted. It’s completely insane.

Whether or not they will succeed in what they’re attempting is yet to be seen. Sometimes these shows try to do too much at once and end up collapsing on themselves. But the crossover this year will no doubt be better than previous years due to its tighter focus. It won’t be concerned with introducing a slew of new characters to launch another series, and rather than having a different plot for each episode of the crossover — the three hour event will see characters from all four shows come together to face The Dominators. I’m most excited to see how Supergirl engages with the heroes of Earth One, and more so how the heroes react to her abilities. Especially Diggle — who was already seen dropping his burger as Martian Manhunter transformed from human to alien form right before his eyes in the Superhero Fight Club 2.0 video.

The crossover is set to begin in November.

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