With The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event wrapped up, the network has released the trailers for the remainder of the seasons of their various DC Comics series.
The ‘Crisis’ event ended with some Earths combined into one to form Earth-Prime, while the multiverse was also reformed in its entirety with the odd change. As a result, the status quo on some shows has been given a makeover with some tweaks to their worlds.
The most notable clip is the new full trailer for the fifth season of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” which kicks off its full season from Tuesday January 21st. The clip includes a few scenes with Zari’s brother Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian) having joined the team, while Matt Ryan’s John Constantine makes a welcome return.
The next is the full season trailer for the new “Stargirl” series which launches this Spring. Brec Bassinger plays high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore who discovers a powerful cosmic staff and, after learning that her step-father used to be a hero sidekick, becomes the inspiration for a new generation of superheroes.
“Supergirl” seems to be the show having to deal with the biggest changes as Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) is not only alive again but is a ‘good guy’ and is now in charge of the DEO – however Kara and Lena both remember the old Lex and are understandably dubious. New episodes kick off Monday.
“The Flash” is now in post-Crisis mode. Barry no longer has the weight of his potential absence or death hanging over him, but that doesn’t mean all those around him aren’t dealing with it in different ways.
“Arrow” has only two episodes left with the immediate next episode “Green Arrow & The Canaries” serving as something of a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series under consideration that would follow Oliver Queen’s adult children. New episodes begin Wednesday.
Both “Batwoman” and “Black Lightning” get back to regular business with little to no impact. In the former’s case, Kate has to deal with Alice along with other villains making trouble for Gotham City including a vampiric villainess names Nocturna. In the latter, Jefferson navigates his new reality and Lynn’s determination to save the meta kids.
