DC On The CW; Some Updates Announced

Every year The CW shares news about their shows before they go into a new season, they of course announce many things like casting, story details, the works. Today they shared a bevy of updates for the likes of The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and of course Legends of Tomorrow. So here's a breakdown of those updates!

For The Flash, executive producers Todd and Aaron Helbing revealed that the new speedster villain will be Savitar. As revealed at Comic-Con, the other villain is Doctor Alchemy.

On DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Lance Henriksen will play Justice League of Society member Obsidian who will appear in the fifth episode of the show's second season, joining the recently cast Matthew MacCaull as Commander Steel and Sarah Grey as Stargirl

“One of the characters [on the four series] is going to be coming out,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed. EP Greg Berlanti added that it will be a “significant character.”

Supergirl adds Chris Wood, who will be playing Mon-El, who is in the Season 1 finale’s pod, as a series regular. The show has also added Sharon Leal as Miss Martian.

“This is the last year of flashbacks” on Arrow, which will move to Russia, EP Marc Guggenheim confirmed. “It’s going to involve Oliver’s introduction into the Bratva. He’s basically recruited into this criminal organization. In the present day, he has recruits of his own. He’s a trainee in the past and a trainer in the present.”

Arrow has added Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren as the big bad for its season 5, who will have links to the more Russian side of the show. “In our flashbacks in Russia, we are going to be bringing in Dolph Lundgren as one of our big bads,” Wendy Mericle, producer of the show, said. Guggenheim announced that the seventh episode of the show's season five would introduce Marv Wolfman’s Vigilante.

Speaking about whether actors from the other DC shows, i.e. Legends or Arrow, will appear in The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover, Berlanti acknowledged it was a possibility.

“There’s a lot of time travel shows this year,” he said. “There’s only one time travel show where Victor Garber will be singing ‘Edelweiss’ to a bunch of Nazis. That is happening.”

Kevin Smith will direct an episode of Supergirl and another Flash instalment. Rachel Talalay is directing a Supergirl episode too.

On the note of the four show crossover, it has been noted that it will start with Supergirl then crescendo to the likes of Legends of Tomorrow with the other shows being a part too.
