Crisis On Earth-x Arrowverse Crossover Description Released

Before the month is out, we’ll be treated to the latest four-part Arrowverse crossover. Last year’s team-up between the heroes of Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow was one of the biggest highlights of the shared universe so far, and brought in some huge ratings for The CW.

Story-wise, it featured an alien race called the Dominators invading the Earth. How will this year go bigger, then? Well, instead of aliens, the Arrowverse heroes will face their own evil Nazi doppelgangers from another world.

The synopses for the four episodes that make up the crossover, titled “Crisis on Earth-x,” have now been revealed. In an effort to keep spoilers for how the plot progresses under wraps, the text remains basically the same for all four synopses, but it still does give us a full list of the characters who’ll be involved in each episode.

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ EPs Dish on ‘E.T.’-Inspired Halloween Episode & the Return of Rip Hunter!
Ray Palmer befriending a younger version of himself? Stranger things have happened on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!

On Tuesday’s Halloween episode, the Legends head back to 1980s Ivy Town when they see a headline announcing that elementary-aged Ray has been found dead after going missing on Halloween. Problem is, present-day Ray (Brandon Routh) is alive and well on the Waverider. Anachronism alert!

“We’re basically doing an episode that’s a send-up of the Amblin films of the ‘80s,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased to reporters last week. “It’s very Stranger Things. It’s a story where Ray Palmer, as a young boy, befriends an alien -- kind of like Elliott in E.T. -- the twist being that the alien he befriends is a baby Dominator.”

Donald Trump ‘Dishonored’ with Plaque Marking the Spot Where He Boasted About Grabbing Women
For many, the sound of President Donald Trump bragging on a 2005 hot-mic tape about grabbing women “by the p—sy” has been seared into their brains for a lifetime.

For others who don’t remember the moment as clearly, there’s now a plaque.

The showrunners of the CW superhero drama Legends of Tomorrow installed a plaque last week marking the spot where Trump made his infamous comments about groping women without their consent to Billy Bush on the Access Hollywood bus.

“On this spot in September 2005, Donald J. Trump bragged about committing sexual assault,” read the plaque that was

There’s a new Legend in town!

On Tuesday’s all-new DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the Legends add another to their ranks when they travel to a dystopian 2042 and meet Zari Tomaz, a fugitive hacker on the run.

“Since the beginning of the show, we’ve long recognized that there was not a lot of estrogen on the bridge of the Waverider, so it was sort of on our bucket list of to-do items,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained to reporters earlier this week. “We really, really wanted to bring on another female character.”

“We always knew it was going to be a show where people would come and go,” Ep Phil Klemmer added, noting that the addition of two members of DC’s Justice Society of America -- Nate Heywood/Steel (Nick Zano) and Amaya Jiwe/Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) -- at the beginning of last season “changed the dynamic [of the group] in such an interesting way.”

Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 Review

This review is based on the first episode.

I’m not sure I can pinpoint the exact moment that Legends of Tomorrow (or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, to be technical) became one of the best shows on The CW lineup. After all, as our very own Robert Yaniz Jr. pointed out in his review of season 2 last year, the show had not yet found its footing.

Perhaps it was when Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) became the new captain of the Waverider then, or maybe during the bantering sessions between the well-realized Legion of Doom. At some point, a new vibe started to ripple through the show’s DNA, transforming it into the pulpy celebration of DC comics that fans had wanted from the very start.

Of course, this didn’t happen at the expense of the stakes. In fact, season 2 ends after some of the most chaotic storytelling I

Constantine Confirmed For Multiple Appearances In Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3

Fans of the Hellblazer have been waiting to see more of John Constantine in the Arrowverse for ages – and at last, this season will be their lucky year. On top of the demon hunter’s animated webseries arriving in 2018, we recently learned that Matt Ryan would be donning the character’s trench coat again in the flesh for an episode of Legends of Tomorrow.

Well, turns out we were only half right, as Constantine is on board for not just one, but multiple episodes of The CW’s time travelling superhero show. As revealed by exec producer Phil Klemmer, his first appearance on the series will be episode 10 of the upcoming season, which will air in early 2018.

Klemmer spoke with ComicBook.com recently about how Constantine’s return came about, what role he’ll play and why he’s such a great fit for the show:

Expect The Final Battle Scene In This Fall’s DC TV Crossover To Be Huge

With this being the fourth consecutive year that The CW will be going ahead with a DC TV crossover, it’s only expected that they go for the “bigger and better” approach. After all, it’s not just Arrow and The Flash participating in this monumental mashup, as we also have Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl in the mix.

Truth be told, such a thing is to be expected since the producers were bold enough to title this baby “Crisis on Earth-x.” Long story short, the heroes we know and love from Earth-1 will be forced to do battle with their doppelgangers from Earth-x, a world where the Nazis won World War II, thus creating a much different landscape.

But whereas past instances saw each parts of a given crossover retain their identity as individual shows, Arrow‘s Stephen Amell has stated that won’t be the case this time around.

Constantine Confirmed To Appear In Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3, Animated Series Trailer Debuts

When Matt Ryan debuted on NBC’s live action Constantine series a few years back, most fans were in agreement that the producers had found the best live action Hellblazer possible. Unfortunately, the network didn’t think ratings were up to snuff and cancelled the show after only 13 episodes. On the plus side, Ryan has since continued playing the character in various other projects, those being Arrow, Justice League Dark and an animated web series slated for release via the CW Seed online streaming service (see the above trailer).

Naturally, one would think a show such as Legends of Tomorrow would provide a decent way for John Constantine to rejoin the Arrowverse due to its ability to pluck DC heroes and villains from wherever they may exist on the timestream. In fact, executive producer and showrunner Phil Klemmer expressed interest in doing so in an interview a couple months ago.

Matt Ryan to reprise Constantine role for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3

In addition to the newly-announced CW Seed animated series, it has been announced that Matt Ryan will be returning to the Arrowverse in live-action, reprising the role of supernatural detective John Constantine for an upcoming guest role in season three of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Asked by Rotten Tomatoes what season three holds, executive producer Phil Klemmer said: ““We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar (Simon Merrells) on the beach in Aruba in the premiere. We meet [new team member] Zari (Tala Ashe) in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the 80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism. We do a Freaky Friday episode.

Synopses For Legends Of Tomorrow And Arrow Season Premieres Arrive

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow.

First, let’s talk about Legends of Tomorrow because it’ll be the first of these two shows to air. In “Aruba-Con,” we’ll see the Waverider crew bereft of the ship they call home and, apparently, carrying on with life in this broken timeline. Seriously, with dinosaurs running amok in the streets and Julius Caesar being a beach bully, I’m not sure if I’d be able to even sleep, so how do they manage?

Two Thrilling New Legends Of Tomorrow Promos Hit The Web

By now, you’ve probably seen countless memes lampooning Barry Allen for his constant messing with the timeline over on The Flash, but if anyone is supremely guilty of doing such a thing, it’s most definitely the Waverider crew on Legends of Tomorrow. I mean, for a group tasked with fixing “time aberrations,” you’d think they wouldn’t kill people in the past all the freaking time. Thus, it surprises none of us that they “broke time” in the season 2 finale.

Continuing on that note, the first of two promos devoted specifically to this show (a general DC TV trailer can be found here) to have debuted last night during the broadcast premiere of Vixen hints the team will continue their meddling this fall. Dubbed “Remake History,” it could either be a whimsical title the network gave it, or it could be teasing Damien Darhk’s diabolical plans.

Captain Cold Will be Different in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3

DC Legends is going to be coming back this October and one of the characters is going to be undergoing a rather radical change. Captain Cold will be turning villain again, and not so long after he’d been seen as the antihero and then the hero. This sudden shift in focus is going to be devastating for his team, especially Heat Wave. Executive producer Phil Klemmer had this to say: “It will be about as polar opposite as the Snart that he’s played on our show. We’ve got a cool pitch to justify that version of him, which I don’t

Legends Of Tomorrow Boss Teases Captain Cold’s Return

As is the case with any TV series, you have your standout characters that steal the show whenever they appear on screen. Perhaps you’ll agree with me in this case, because, in my opinion, Captain Cold and Heat Wave have risen above the rest of the pack when it comes to Legends of Tomorrow. Played by Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, respectively, these two thieves-turned-heroes went from being relatively unknown to the mainstream to being household names thanks to some fine performances.

Unfortunately, Miller’s Leonard Snart met his end in season 1’s finale, but with this being a time traveling show, he returned in season 2 – albeit in a different capacity. You see, the Legion of Doom plucked him from earlier in the timeline, right before he signed up with Rip Hunter and the others. Thus, we met a more ruthless version of him, much to the chagrin of the ever-evolving Mick Rory.

Legends Of Tomorrow Ep Has A Jonah Hex Return And A Constantine Crossover On His Wishlist

One thing that has thus far allowed Legends of Tomorrow to excel is that of its utilization of DC characters who may not necessarily exist in the present day. Admittedly, this is something the producers need to do much more often (I spoke at length about this in my Blu-ray review of season 2), but it really boils down to which heroes and villains the folks at DC Comics will grant them access to. Well, that and actors’ availability.

A couple fine examples have been Jonah Hex and Connor Hawke, the former having met the Waverider crew when they ventured back to the Wild West on separate occasions. The latter, however, serves as the Green Arrow in the future glimpsed in “Star City 2046,” one of my personal favorite episodes.

Recently, DC Legends TV caught up with executive producer Phil Klemmer and asked if we’ll be seeing either of those guys in season 3. Unfortunately,

Legends Of Tomorrow Showrunners Want Matt Ryan To Play Constantine In Season 3

  • LRM Online
DC's greatest live-action television series has been canceled since 2015, yet the character at its center continues to live on. I am, of course, referring to Constantine, the NBC series that ran for only one season ending with a cliffhanger never-the-less. Constantine was great because certain episodes, including "A Feast of Friends", were incredibly true to specific storylines from the Hellblazer comic, with the show never shying away from the horror elements of John Constantine's world. The show's greatest strength, however, was the casting of Matt Ryan as Constantine, which remains among the most accurate casting for a superhero adaptation in any medium.

Ryan was so good that he's been brought back to conquer the role several times. First, Ryan donned the ratty jacket and tie again in the episode of Arrow titled Haunted, before voicing the character in DC's best animated feature, 2017's Justice League Dark. Ryan will also
