This interview contains spoilers for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, episode 7, the final installment of the “Invasion” crossover.

Now that the dust has settled from The CW’s ambitious four-show crossover between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, our heroes have not only saved the Earth from an alien attack (all in a day’s work!), they’ve grown closer in the process — even Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) are back to being besties.

“Their friendship has been renewed through the course of these episodes,” noted Andrew Kreisberg, who serves as showrunner on The Flash and Supergirl. “So when we come back in Episode 9 [of The Flash], Team Flash is in a really good place and strong again, which they need to be, because they’re going to confront Savitar in Episode 9.” Read more…

This post contains spoilers for Arrow Season 5, episode 8, titled “Invasion!”

In the Arrow installment of this week’s CW superhero crossover, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), found himself abducted by the Dominators, along with his allies Thea (Willa Holland), Diggle (David Ramsey), Ray (Brandon Routh) and Sara (Caity Lotz).

In the current era of Peak TV, shows are considered lucky if they can score a full season pickup, let alone multiple season renewals. But Arrow, The CW’s first Greg Berlanti-produced superhero series, defied all the odds.    

Five seasons after it first premiered on the network, Arrow is not only reaching a milestone of 100 episodes this week during the big DC TV crossover with The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, but it is also responsible for spawning all three of those other DC Comics series. 

Without Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) saving the city in his green hood, there would never have been Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) zipping through the streets of Central City or Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) piloting the Waverider throughout time or even Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) soaring through the sky in National City.     Read more…

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: 10 superheroes walk into a warehouse… To find out what happens next, you’ll have to tune in to The CW’s epic crossover event, which brings together heroes from Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow to face off with an alien race known as the Dominators. 

In last night’s midseason finale of Supergirl, The Flash‘s Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) popped over to an alternate Earth to retrieve the Girl of Steel (Melissa Benoist) for a team-up that would put Batman and Superman to shame, and in the Nov. 29 episode of The Flash, we’ll see exactly what our heroes are up against. (Hint: They’re way less cuddly than E.T.) Read more…
