The first official promo and photos from The CW’s upcoming DC four series crossover episodes have arrived and the shots are just full of joy and enthusiasm as this combination of essentially all the key characters comes together for the first time.
Green Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Citizen Steel, Heat Wave and Vixen are all here along with key supporting characters ranging from Diggle to somehow Laurel Lance. Check out the photo gallery and teaser trailer at the bottom.
Before that, it’s now looking like the troubled fourth season of “Arrow” may be getting some ‘Days of Future Past’ style retooling. The most recent episode of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” saw a 1980s Damien Darhk learn of his fate and joining Reverse-Flash with the intention to change things. We’ve already seen Flashpoint in “The Flash” lead to one small change in “Arrow,” could more be coming?
Amell himself has spoken about the disappointing fourth season with EW, saying going into this year’s fifth season the show was at a crossroads:
“There’s a lull in any relationship, where you have a come-to-Jesus moment, and that happened to me in Season 4. We are a street-level crime-fighting show. We’re at our best when we’re focused on those things… We’re either going to do what we do and do it well, or it’s the last year. If we find the magic formula — which is not magic, it’s just hard work and playing to your strengths — then the show could go on for a really long time. I do really believe that this season is sort of a throw-down-the-gauntlet year for us, where we’re either going to do what we do and do it well or it’s the last year.”
Fans so far have responded quite favourably to the fifth season and ratings, though starting low for the season, have held steady and even improved compared to the premiere.
