Team Flash prepares for the crisis in the latest The Flash season six trailer

Barry Allen’s gift is speed but his true power is his love, so states the latest extended trailer for season six of The CW’s The Flash. That love is powerful & has gotten team Flash through many events, but can it stop a crisis?

That is the question the team will be tasked with, among others, as the countdown to the Crisis on Infinite Earths looms over the series (and numerous other of the Arrowverse shows) ahead of the December and January running crossover event. This trailer focuses more on Barry and his team’s battle to try and stop the outcome of the Crisis that sees Barry vanish forever, a fate they’ve known about since season one.

Included are numerous returning familiar faces, as well as some new threats that will rise to cause chaos in the Flash’s world.

Team Flash spent the last year dealing with not one but two Cicadas, the return of Eobard Thawne (a.k.a. Reverse Flash), and the surprise arrival from the future of Barry and Iris’s daughter Nora West-Allen, (a.k.a. XS). The stakes were higher than ever during the season 5 finale, which culminated in Barry and Iris losing their daughter after only just getting to know her. How will they deal with saying goodbye to their speedster daughter, and what does Thawne’s escape mean for Team Flash?

The Flash returns to The CW on October 08. Crises on Infinite Earth’s stretches across Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with three of the five episodes ariing in mid-December and the last two held off till shows return in mid-January.

The WB’s Birds of Prey star Ashley Scott brings Huntress to the Crisis on Infinite Earths event

When it comes to their Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, The CW seems to be pulling out all the stops in regards to actors from previous DC related works that they are bringing into the fold to either reprise their roles or play a new role.

While Tom Welling and Erica Durance from Smallville or the already in the Arroverse John Wesley Shipp or even Burt Ward from the 60s Batman seemed like either givens or likely candidates for coming back, the latest recruit is one that many might not have expected or remembered in some cases.

According to TVLine, Ashley Scott is set to reprise her role of Helena Kyle/Huntress from the short-lived 2002 WB series Birds of Prey during the event. Long before Arrow kicked off the Arrowverse in 2012 and shortly after Smallville began it’s journey, The WB tried an all female led superhero series with Birds of Prey. Scott starred as Huntress while Dina Meyer played Barbara Gordon who was the former Batgirl turned Oracle and Rachel Skarsten played the young Dinah Redmond/Lance also known as the heroic Black Canary.

Funny enough, Skarsten will already have joined the Arrowverse before Scott because the former Black Canary is playing the antagonist Alice for the fall premiering Batwoman series. Whether Alice will appear during Batwoman’s portion of the crossover is unclear, so the actresses crossing paths again is quite possible.

A version of Huntress has appeared on Arrow in the past, played by Jessica De Gouw and a version is hitting the big screen next year in Birds of Prey played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in February.

Crises on Infinite Earth’s stretches across Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with three of the five episodes ariing in mid-December and the last two held off till shows return in mid-January.

Team Flash seeks to save Barry Allen from Crises in The Flash season six trailer

Crisis on Infinite Earths is looming large over all the characters that call the Arrowverse, and it’s multitude of realities, home, no more so than Barry Allen/The Flash. All the way back in season one it was revealed that one day a Crisis would happen that would cause Barry to vanish.

Because of lots of time shakeups over the years, that Crisis is coming sooner than expected and in the new season six trailer for The Flash shows that Team Flash is not ready to let their friend become lost to the crises.

The season synopsis states:

Team Flash spent the last year dealing with not one but two Cicadas, the return of Eobard Thawne (a.k.a. Reverse Flash), and the surprise arrival from the future of Barry and Iris’s daughter Nora West-Allen, (a.k.a. XS). The stakes were higher than ever during the season 5 finale, which culminated in Barry and Iris losing their daughter after only just getting to know her. How will they deal with saying goodbye to their speedster daughter, and what does Thawne’s escape mean for Team Flash?

The Flash returns to The CW on October 08. Crises on Infinite Earth’s stretches across Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with three of the five episodes ariing in mid-December and the last two held off till shows return in mid-January.

The CW adds Osric Chau as Ryan Choi/Atom for Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover

As Brandon Routh’s time in the Arrowverse moves closer to completion (alongside his wife Courtney Ford), the actor’s heroic role of Ray Palmer/Atom very well could have a replacement in the future. While Routh plays double duty as Atom and the Kingdom Come version of Superman in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, The CW is bringing another holder of the Atom title into play during the event.

As reported by TVInsider, former Supernatural actor Osric Chau will be taking on the role of Ryan Choi, a character that at times replaced and took on the Atom legacy from Palmer in the comics. While the article only mentions Chau as playing Choi and not Atom, it seems likely that the character will end up suiting up at some point.

Choi is described as ” “physics professor at Ivy Town University” and “a normal guy who learns that he has a pivotal role to play in the coming crisis on infinite earths.” 

As metnioned above, Routh is set to leave DC’s Legends of Tomorrow at some point in the upcoming fifth season and it would make a lot of sense for the powers that be to use the event as a way to bring in a replacement character that can keep the Atom legacy going on the series while also bringing more representation and a fresh outlook to the series/Arrowverse.

Ryan Choi debuted in 2006, created by Grant Morrison and Gail Simone, and took over the Atom mantle as Ray Palmer was missing at the time. Choi featured in his own ongoing series for a few years before meeting an untimely fate a few years later.

When the DC Universe was rebooted in 2011, into the New 52, Ryan didn’t show up but eventually when the universe was sort of relaunched and changed up to bring back aspects of the comics line from before the reboot with DC Rebirth, Ryan returned wearing a suit like Routh’s from The CW shows as part of the new Justice League of America in 2017.

Crises on Infinite Earth’s stretches across Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with three of the five episodes ariing in mid-December and the last two held off till shows return in mid-January.

The end returns to the beginning in the new Arrow season 8 trailer

Next month marks the beginning of the end for Oliver Queen/Green Arrow as The CW’s Arrow marks it’s 8th and final season. In order to reach the end though, sometimes you have to return to where you’ve been before.

That’s the case in the new extended trailer for the final season, which follows Oliver, who left at the end of season seven with the Monitor in order to prepare for this year’s big crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths where Oliver seemingly is meant to die, on his journey through some old sets and potentially moments in his life or even alternate realities.

The Queen Mansion (which hasn’t been used as a set in years), the Verdant night club, Oliver’s haunts in Hong Kong, and more featured in the trailer. As do returnig characters including Tommy Merlyn ( Colin Donnell), Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson), Thea Queen (Willa Holland) and Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana (Rila Fukushima).

Arrow returns for its final ten episodes beginning on October 15.

The Pierce family is ready to strike in the new Black Lightning season three poster

Lightning strikes for a third time as The CW’s Black Lightning prepares to enter it’s upcoming third season in around a month’s time. While those behind the series are keeping pretty quiet about what folks might expect in the new season, a brand new poster has been unveiled.

Shared on Twitter, the poster showcases Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning with images of his surrogate father Peter Gambi, daughters Anissa Pierce/Thunder & Jennifer Pierce/Lightning as well as ex-wife Lynn Stewart within him. The family looks prepared to defend Freeland once more from all that will befall their hometown.

Alongside any huge changes set to come with his new season, this year will see the Cress Williams played Jefferson/Black Lightning finally join the Arrowverse at large.

Since debut the show has been its own thing within the multiverse but come December/January at least Jefferson will find his way into the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover that will bring all the current show casts as well as various actors from other former DC related projects including John Wesley Shipp, Burt Ward and Tom Welling among others.

Black Lightning returns on October 7.
