So Supergirl is changing networks next season from CBS to CW, and they are moving production from L.A. to Vancouver where the other Arrowverse shows are filmed. Hopefully this means more crossovers.

@Tasuki
Was that announced as official? I know it's been rumored since there had been no announcement of SG getting a renewal for next season. Either way, should be cool. I rather enjoyed SG, at least to the extent that i watched it here and there (and the Flash crossover episode was particularly good). It's a solid show — not amazing, but generally good. It's certainly better than Arrow IMO, but Flash is definitely leading the pack of the DC shows, in no small part because most of the main cast is excellent.

Also, for those keeping up with The Flash's storyline this season, i'm totally calling that the man in the iron mask on Eath-2 is the real Jay Garrick/Earth-2 Flash, who will be played by John Wesley Shipp, aka Barry's Dad on the show and the Flash from the 1990s series. Which would be awesome to have him playing Golden Age/Earth-2 Flash.

@the_shpydar Yeah its official. Several places have been reporting it the past few days. I am really excited about it.

As for your prediction on The Flash, I had a similar one, though I am going with the guy in the mask is Wally West on that Earth and he's the Flash.

Let's see who's right.

@the_shpydar @tasuki Wow I haven't seen you guys in this forum in a while! The Flash seems to just keep getting better and better. Unfortunately the same can not be said about Arrow. I was curious, what are your guys' takes on not using Grant Gustin for the DCEU movies?

@the_shpydar Well so you were right, no fair not telling use you're a writer. ;P

I finally finished all the Arrowverse shows and I will say my favorite this season was Legends, followed by The Flash, Supergirl and last Arrow. My main problem with Arrow was how anticlimactic the battle with Darhk was but then again I thought Darhk was a meh character he just didn't grab me like Melcolm, Slade or even Ra did. Of course getting that actor to play him probably didn't help.

@HawkeyeWii Yeah its been awhile mainly I wasnt around in this thread because I was so far behind the Arrowverse shows and didn't want to accidentally see some spoilers and I could honestly care less about the DC Movieverse right now. So that should answer your question. But to go into detail I can understand why they don't want to use Grant in the movie due to wanting to keep the movies and TV shows seperate which I think is dumb IMO. I think they should do something like what Marvel is doing with Agents and just have it all in one Cinematic universe whether it's TV or Movies. It really boggles my mind on how DC did Superman and the 89 Batman or even for that matter the Dark Knight Trilogy so well but just can't do these movies any justice (no pun intended).

Also one last thing on the DC TV Universe appearently they will introduce Superman in season 2 of Supergirl

@Tasuki I agree. I think it is a terrible idea to not use both Amell and Gustin as their respective characters in the movies. And as for your comment on the original Superman and Batman movies. That is all they seem to be able to do well, is Batman and Superman movies, but obviously not together lol. Although I'm a hypocrite, because I'm going to buy the "Deluxe" edition of BvS the day it comes out.
I also heard that rumor about Supergirl. Can it please be the actor from Smallville. Please!!!!

@HawkeyeWii They said that the guy who's cast as Superman was in the tv show Teen Wolf.

And yes the whole movie/tv universe with DC is an odd arramgement. On one hand I can see the point as DC has alot of heroes and barring certain ones for tv and shows means we don't get alot of the same stuff regurgitated, I mean how many times do we need to see a Batman or Superman origin story, and it let's them focus on other less known heroes and villains. But then again with some many charcters that crossover with each other it just messes everything up when they have to change things to accommodate the deal. Such as Suicide Squad being dropped from the Arrowverse.

@Tasuki SHHHH! Don't let Berlanti know i spilled the beans or he'll squash my chances of hooking up with Killer Frost!

@HawkeyeWii I too haven't cared about the DC movie universe. I've watched bits of Man of Steel and found it near unwatchable, and while i plan to eventually get through Bats vs Supes, my first attempt had me rolling my eyes non-stop for a half-hour before i fell asleep (which i didn't really care about since i was watching it via less than legitimate methods ). But from what i've seen so far, Affleck at least is good in the flick.

I agree that they'd be smarter to build a universe tying together the films and TV shows, but in a way i'm glad they're not, since DC TV is leaps and bounds better than Snyder's horrible grimdark movie-universe (though Suicide Squad looks like it might be pretty good).

It is a shame that Gustin isn't playing Flash in the films, since the kid really nails the role. Meanwhile, i'm curious to see what they do next season with Supergirl now on CW; i wonder if they'll use the Flashpoint-esque ending of Flash's season finale to fold Supergirl into the Earth-1 Berlanti-verse, or if they'll keep SG off in Earth-S (or however they're designating it) for now.

So, some interesting news concerning Justice League. First off according to Snyder it won't be as dark as Batman V Superman and this won't be a first part it will just be a stand alone. Also the main villain is Steppenwolf? Who is that.

Sounds to me like they are just making this movie now to fulfill the deal with Snyder and then once he's done then do a proper JL movie. What a joke this has become.

Darkseid's uncle from what I can gather (had to look that up). I thought Ra's al Ghul was a risky villain to use in Batman Begins, not as well known to non comic readers as the usual rogues, but this choice is worse.

I don't know, I think it's a good idea to use Steppenwolf. It'd be a good way to introduce and set up Darkseid, the New Gods and Apokalips, without actually using them in the movie.

So the reviews just came in for Suicide Squad and it's not looking good right now. Man it just seems like the DCEU can't catch any slack right now.

I shall be seeing Suicide Squad as part of this new 4DX experience at my nearest towns cinema on Friday however, the reviews are just as underwhelming as Batman v Superman were.

Why do DC Comics have such a difficult time creating a decent film? Marvel make it look so, so easy in comparison!

Granted, Wonder Woman looks curiously enjoyable upon watching the Comic Con trailer. It has a Captain America feel about it, especially with the film being set during the World War.

If the behind the scene story is true, then I can confidently say that WB is the problem with the current batch of DC movies. They're rushing to catch up with the MCU and are way too involved in the decision making process.

Watched the Killing Joke a while ago and it was meh. The extra 30 minute prologue was so weak.

So, Netflix is getting Arrow Season 4 & Flash Season 2 the first week of October, and Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 the second week of October.

Should I wait until LoT is released to watch all 3 in tandem, or would it be okay to hold off on LoT until I finish Arrow & Flash (I know they like their crossovers, and was wondering if they'd be too spoilery if I didn't watch in tandem?).

@Tasuki
Agreed on the evil speedster thing, but at least this time he's not the "big bad" (that'd be Dr. Alchemy, and speculation that Mirror Master may show up this season as well). That being said, they are being somewhat true to the comics (at least to my limited knowledge of the DC universe), since there are quite a plethora of speedsters (evil and otherwise) in the comics.

Meanwhile, next week Jessie Quick/Jessie Wells is coming back with powers, and given the set-up for the season is that Dr. Alchemy is returning powers to those who had them in the Flashpoint universe, it's just a matter of time before Wally becomes Kid Flash (again).

Speedsters everywhere!
