    Arrow Season 7 thread
    The Flash Season 5 thread
    Supergirl Season 4 thread

    DCTV-Crossover_2018_Winter_001.

    The fifth annual "Arrowverse" crossover event will span "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Supergirl" and take us to Gotham City for the first time, where we'll meet Kate Kane, secretly the masked vigilante known as Batwoman.

    Ruby Rose ("Orange is the New Black", xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2, The Meg) will play Kane.

    The crossover event will be written by Caroline Dries ("Smallville", "The Vampire Diaries"), who would serve as showrunner should The CW decide to move foward with a "Batwoman" TV series.

    No word yet on whether the character will reside on Earth-1 (home to the Green Arrow and The Flash) or Earth-38 (home to Supergirl, the Martian Manhunter, and Superman).

    Unlike "Supergirl", where Superman is mentioned frequently and appears occasionally, the crossover event will not acknowledge the existence of Batman.

    "Legends of Tomorrow" will not be one of the participating shows in this year's crossover event.

    I wonder if the Legends will make some reference to what is going on during the crossover in the episode the airs during crossover week. Since their show will air in the middle of the crossover, it would be odd if there is no reference. Perhaps since the crossover is the 9th instead of 8th episodes this year, Legends will have started their midwinter break and not air that week. That probably would be best.

    From what I understand, the crossover this year is going to be more intimate stakes than the last couple, where the fate of Earth-1 was on the line, so it might be that the Legends aren't even aware of it.

    Not everybody crosses over to other shows during the crossover. Many are featured only on their home show during the crossover. What I like alot last season was that the crossover seemed like one two hour movie and you couldn't tell which show you were watching , Barry, Iris, Ollie, and Felicity were married on the Legends episode with none of the Legends there. I hope that continues on the shorter crossover this year. I guess iI wonder if the shorter crossover and reduced episode count for all the shows is a sign of budget constraints rather than storytelling concerns and will there be other signs of this during the upcoming season.

    Per TVLine:

    The crossover will air Sunday, December 9th through Tuesday, December 11th. Due to the ordering of the story across the episodes, "The Flash" and "Supergirl" will swap timeslots, with "The Flash" airing on Sunday and "Supergirl" airing on Tuesday. The episodes comprising the crossover will be 5x09 of "The Flash", 7x09 of "Arrow", and 4x09 of "Supergirl".

    If The CW does decide to move forward with a standalone "Batwoman" series, it would be for the 2019-20 TV season.

    DC has announced that Tyler Hoechlin will be returning as Superman for the crossover event, and they're currently in the process of casting Lois Lane, who will also appear.

    I'm very happy with this news, because in my opinion Hoechlin's Superman is the best since Christopher Reeve.

    I have dropped all of the shows from my weekly regimen, but I will watch this crossover event all because of Tyler's return.

    This is the first thing that has got me excited about this year's crossover. They can go anywhere with this. Will this be related to the the headline we have seen since season 1 of the Flash, "The Flash vanishes in a Crisis".
    Characters can die if they are other versions of the characters. Supergirl can die and they can recreate the famous Superman holding Supergirl's dead body . Superman can be in the trunks. They can all be from the same earth so you don't have to spend time explaining why Supergirl, Superman, and Lois lane are there. You also don't have to explain where all the actors who are not in the crossover are. You don't need to explain why the characters suddenly can leave what they are doing on their own shows to participate in the action of the crossover and then never mentioning what happened in the crossover once it is over.

    Three superheroes go to the dark side, literally:
    DCTV-Crossover_2018_Winter_003.

    In other news, Tyler Hoechlin is confirmed to appear in all three episodes of the crossover event.

    Oh Man. Checkout this poster. It will be an alternate reality apparently.

    This year’s Arrowverse crossover event will air Sunday, Dec. 9 through Tuesday, Dec. 11, comprised of the ninth episodes of The Flash (airing on a special night), Arrow and Supergirl (airing on a special night). Guest stars include Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black) as Batwoman/Kate Kane, Tyler Hoechlin (reprising his role as Supergirl‘s Superman/Clark Kent), Elizabeth Tulloch (Grimm) as Lois Lane, Jeremy Davies (Lost) as Arkham Asylum doc John Deegan), LaMonica Garrett(Designated Survivor) as Mar Novu aka The Monitor and Cassandra Jean Amell as Mr. Freeze’s wife, Nora.

    Sister series Legends of Tomorrow, meanwhile, is serving up a “crossover” episode of its own that week, not one to be left out of the fun.

    The problem I'm having is that the Flash mid-season finale always set up a potential cliff-hanger for the show's return. With Flash kicking off the event this time around, I hope that the CW will plan the 10th episode before the Winter break. I don't how it is with Legends and Arrow, but I would assume something similar.

    This latest set photo is a reveal that I wish had been kept secret until the crossover aired, it's so good. I'm putting it in spoiler tags so nobody gets inadvertently spoiled the way I did:
    John Wesley Shipp in his Flash costume from the 1990 TV series!
    DCTV-Crossover_2018_Winter_004.
    The eighth episode of the season is the series's 100th episode, and will serve as the midseason finale. The crossover episode the following week is like a bonus episode.

    Sounds like this crossover might be one of the best they've done yet!
