The CW has announced the dates for its annual crossover of its various DC Comics shows, this time the event will take place over a shortened three episode run with “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” sitting out events this year.
The action kicks off with “The Flash” on Sunday, December 9th while “Arrow” will continue the story on Monday, December 10th and “Supergirl” ends it on Tuesday, December 11th. It’s expected ‘Legends’ characters will appear even though there’s no direct ‘Legends’ episode.
This story will mark Ruby Rose’s debut as Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, and Gotham City is also expected to appear in the episodes – but there won’t be a Batman appearance even though he exists in this world.
The episode will also likely introduce some of the supporting cast and villains from the “Batwoman” pilot and potential series. This will mark the fifth annual Fall crossover event and eighth major crossover overall in the series canon (not including numerous single episode cameos).
In related news, EW reports that actor Kyle Secor has signed on to join the fifth season of “The Flash” for a recurring role as Caitlin Snow’s father, genetic scientist Dr. Thomas Snow, who has been absent for decades and has a big secret.
