OK, so who else is a fan of the DC universe in the television series? I find that I like the tv shows a bit more than the movies, though the Wonder Woman & Justice League movies coming up next year will surely balance the tip more towards the movie side of things. Though I did like Batman vs Superman to be honest, compared to Man Of Steel, it was waaay better. But for me the 4 tv shows – Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl & Legends Of Tomorrow – really are among my favourite shows to watch of all time. Though I feel that The Arrowverse is more what they are referred to as the movies aren’t connected to the series.
Which I think is a shame! Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl in particular are awesome casting with Legends also hitting the top marks in that department (but I shall mentioned a few things later). They have memorable characters and even if the plots and storylines seem more tv friendly they do have their darker moments as well. And this post is in particular as this coming week, starting Monday, we have a storyline that will span 4 days and the 4 shows in which the heroes will come together to fight an invading alien force. The story will start off with the ending moments of a Supergirl episode on Monday, move onto The Flash where the storyline takes off, then continue on the Arrow before concluding on Legends Of Tomorrow.
“Invasion!” sees all of the main cast members for each series appear in at least their own series, with Melissa Benoist appearing as Supergirl across the entire crossover. Multiple actors and characters from previous Arrow seasons also return to reprise their roles in the Arrow episode, as it is the series’ 100th. All three episodes in The Flash, Arrow & Legends will be titled as “Invasion”. Things look very exciting indeed with an alternate timeline also in place in Arrow and something about a shocking secret related to Flashpoint is revealed and suddenly no one is sure who they can trust.
I am tempted to wait till Friday and watch them all back to back after I have downloaded them all. I guess I will wait and see.
