Comic Con Trailers for Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Gotham, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow New Seasons

While Marvel kicks DC’s tail in the movie theater, it’s pretty much even with the quality of the TV shows the publishers put out (much to the benefit of fans).  DC doesn’t have a mature show line like Marvel does on Netflix, but their usurpation of The CW with Arrow still fantastic into its fifth year, Flash just as good into its third, Supergirl moving over from CBS for season two, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow taking on The Legion of Doom in season 2, and Gotham getting ready for The Court of Owls in season three, that’s a pretty solid line-up for fans to look forward to this fall.  Comic Con had trailers for all five series for you to check out below.

My Favorite Scene: The Flash Season One (2014) “Ollie Schools Barry”

One of the great things about having The Flash spin-off from Arrow is that there is a pre-existing relationship between the two heroes that’s grown into a friendship not unlike the one that Batman/Superman share (only they try to kill each other less often).  With Oliver a seasoned veteran by this point and Barry relying more on his powers than his brain, Ollie decides to give Barry a training session that would make Batman weep with joy.Flash, Arrow, Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell

Trailer Time: Arrow Season 4 Trailer #1 (The CW – 2015) SPOILER WARNING (KILLING TIME’s 2500th POST!)

Arrow has continued to be one of the strongest shows on TV during its run, which now enters the fourth season. If you’re not up-to-date, both the synopsis for season four and the trailer are going to ruin a lot of the wealth of changes that season three wrought for Team Arrow. I haven’t heard anything official, but I assume next season will be the last for the show. It’s format has been to intertwine a year in the life of the evolving Hood, Arrow, Green Arrow with that of one of the five years Oliver Queen spent away before returning home. Extrapolating that out, next season will be the loop closing, covering the last year he was away and leading us back to the series premiere. As much as I would love to see it go on, it seems that’s where the writers have been heading since the beginning. We still have miles to go, though, and this trailer promises another awesome run when Arrow returns next month

After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen (a.k.a. The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe?

Trailer Time: DC’s Heroes of Tomorrow Trailer #1 (2015 – The CW) *Plus Series Synopsis*

The CW has been the standard bearer for quality comic book TV shows, first launching Arrow, then this season upping the ante with The Flash.  Next year, they’re spinning a third show out of both previous installments with DC’s Heroes of Tomorrow.  It started with Brandon Routh’s The Atom and the buzz around his run this season on Arrow, but soon we were hearing other heroes and villains in the mix: Hawkgirl, Heatwave, Capt. Cold, and the time-travelling Rip Hunter.  The CW has today released the first trailer and the synopsis for the series, and I’m a little skeptical, but they’ve yet to be anything but stellar.  If DC’s films were run like their TV series, I’d be a whole lot more optimistic about their properties headed to the big screen.  DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere this fall on The CW.

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? 

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”), Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” Superman Returns), Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”), Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”), and Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow), with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”) and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).

Based on the characters from DC Comics, the new series hails from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli StonePercy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan).

17 New Arrow Season 3 Pictures and a New Villain Cast

My favorite show on network TV, Arrow, returns October 8th at 8 p.m. on The CW.  The second season is out on Blu Ray, so there’s no excuse not to be ready to go for the best live-action thing DC has ever done aside from The Dark Knight Trilogy.

The big bad for season three has already been Ras ‘al Ghul, something the show has been building to slowly for two years, but today Nick Taraby was cast as Digger Harkness.  That would be Captain Boomerang, who is a FLASH villain.  My guess is either it’s part of a crossover event between Arrow and Flash or Ollie & Co will be dealing with Digger during one of his stints on Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad.  Drink in the Starling City goodness.  TV IS RETURNING TO SAVE US FROM THE MOVIES!!!
