The CW’s DC Universe keeps growing. After the annual crossover event, this year called “Elseworlds,” it has been confirmed that Batwoman, who was a major guest star during the event, will be at the very least getting her own pilot.
Supergirl wraps up the annual crossover with “Elseworlds, Part 3.” Picking up pretty much where the last part left off, Barry and Oliver, now being seen as the outlaw Trigger Twins, face off against a black-suited Superman, who proves to be Dr. Deegan, the man causing all the problems for our heroes. The introductory voice over is even done by Deegan, although the phrasing sounds like it’s borrowed from Arrow’s usual lead in.
Essentially, most of the cast handle things badly in “The Book of Rebellion: Chapter Two: The Gift of the Magi.” The title doesn’t even really work, as it references a very specific short story and none of the circumstances of the show really fit it.
The mid-season finale wave keeps rolling, this time hitting the Legends of Tomorrow, or, in this case, the “Legends of To-Meow-Meow.”
The big CW Elseworlds crossover continues over on Arrow. The episodes debuts the new voiceover for the series, but it’s being done by Barry because of the body swap, which is a really nice little detail that they probably spent more than they needed to on.
Luke Cage continues a good second season with a great episode. “The Main Ingredient” could just as easily have been called “Heroes for Hire” as it brings back a classic Marvel pairing that has a lot of fans.
I’m a superhero geek, and I really enjoy it when someone does something particularly good in the genre. The last several years, the CW/DC Comics shows have done an annual crossover, and I think they’ve been getting better and better.
There are a few different ways you could interpret this week’s episode title for The Gifted, but I’d agree, it’s a “gaMe changer.”
