If there’s one universe that’s taking up its lion’s share of the airwaves nowadays, it’s the DC universe. Chances are you’ve been watching at least one superhero television series, possibly more. Maybe even all of them. Whatever your particular case might be, read on for a quick glimpse into what’s coming to an endangered metropolis near you. Hint: it’s interplanetary/interdimensional/time traveling heroes kicking ass.
What you just saw was a teaser for Supergirl season 2’s twelfth episode, “Luthors.” Notice the battle armor in particular. With a title like that, one can expect Lena Luthor to go through some personally challenging times as her desire to cleanse the family name gets tested. One thing’s certain: someone is gonna climb into that suit and use it to try and kill Supergirl. At least at some point.
“Then I dub you Sir Rip Hunter, Knight of the Roundtable!” That’s right folks, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow are packing their bags and headed for yesterday – a very long time ago. Their destination: Camelot, to meet King Arthur in what promises to be one of the most action episodes thus far. I have but one request for this episode: please, oh, please, make a really good Monty Python reference. In fact, make several. The more, the better.
It’s DC’s Flash meets Planet of the Apes! The world’s fastest good guy jumps over to Earth-2 (fantastic name, by the way) and is quickly captured by who else but Grodd. The recurring sorta-villain wastes no time asking Flash to help him foil an invasion of Earth-1 (seriously, give whoever named these places a prize). It’s gonna be a wild ride, assuming you don’t mind some good old animal cruelty… towards humans… never mind.
Is DC material not satisfying your TV cravings? Might I suggest you hop through a portal to The Nerd Stash and find even more good stuff to enjoy? Just don’t get kidnapped by a monkey.
