On a spearhead trajectory to their midseason finales “Arrow” and “The Flash” prepare to raise the stakes and introduce some “Legends”.
It’s becoming apparently clear that The CW network will someday eventually relaunch as DC Comics TV! It wouldn’t be the first time that the network execs have had to repel the notion that (yes) right now they bolster the major muscle when it comes to action figures coming alive in primetime. This season alone The Flash has easily overtaken its competition by continuously keeping step (or even outmatching) with its counterparts on ABC (those agents who are battling “inhumans).
While Tuesday’s undoubtedly belong to the Scarlet Speedster, the Emerald Archer Arrow easily helps audiences get over the hump into the weekend. Now audiences are getting primed for what is shaping up as the “earth-shattering” event of the season when the two heroes pair off for another crossover event — this one will be promising to be the stuff of legends!
For the epic confrontation with new series villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) the “Heroes Join Forces” in a 2-part event that will redefine the way that genre fans have been digesting their superhero shows. Till this point we haven’t had a television series in primetime that is easily poised to position for the first time not 1 or 2 but several members of the Justice League — in the flesh!
Fans of Arrow have had four seasons to watch Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) pull his team of urban street fighters together into one of the most cohesive forces to take on crime in the newly christened Star City. That group now is faced with combating the dangerously elusive H.I.V.E. a notoriously paramilitary organization that is set on corruption at the core.
Over at S.T.A.R. Labs Barry Allen (Grunt Gustin) has been nurtured on his path to heroism by the able Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and the equally crafty Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) but both of these science sidekicks spend most of their time manning the consoles at the HQ, and only until recently has Cisco revealed his metahuman ability to “vibe”. Which came in handy when he met Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée).
The mild-mannered counter girl who works part-time at Jitters, Central City’s most popular coffee shop, is about to learn she has a greater destiny to face — spreading her wings to become none other than Hawkgirl. In Part 1 of the upcoming crossover event entitled “Legends of Today” a person from Kendra’s past returns and he holds the secret to who this mystery woman really is.
Although the immortal madman Vandal Savage has something of an investment in Kendra and will do whatever it takes to stop her or her new super friends (sorry — had to be said). The long-lead trailer for the upcoming event is super and will be eagerly anticipated especially as it prepares to introduce the next DC TV Universe spin-off DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Don’t miss the two-part event beginning on Dec. 1 on The Flash followed by Arrow on Dec. 2. Take a look at the extended trailer here:
