When I was a kid, we were lucky to see superheroes in live-action at all. And for every awesome Christopher Reeve as Superman or Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, you seemed to have a half dozen misfires like the Supergirl movie starring Faye Dunaway. And anyone remember The Phantom with Billy Zane? (If you don’t, consider yourself lucky). So the little ten year old DC Comics fanboy in me can’t help but be giddy now that there are four – FOUR! – DC Comics superhero television shows on the air on the CW network. I am, of course, speaking of Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and my two personal favorites, The Flash and Supergirl.
Now the CW has released a special clip, via Entertainment Weekly, of characters from all four of the Greg Berlanti-produced CW DC Comics shows participating in a superhero style fight club, inducting their newest member Supergirl into the mix. All the heroes are inside an X-Men style Danger Room (if I may be so Marvel), and the clip is just loads of fun, and will get you super jazzed for these shows to just start up again already. You can watch the prelude for the Superhero Fight Club clip in the video above. To check out the full scene, you need to download the CW app.
Aside from “new girl” Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, the clip features Arrow’s Stephen Amell (Green Arrow), Emil Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), and David Ramsey (John Diggle). From The Flash we have Grant Gustin (Flash) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon). From Legends we have Caity Lotz (White Canary), Brandon Routh (the Atom), Franz Drameh (Firestorm). And making a small cameo is David Harewood as the Martian Manhunter.
The Flash returns Tuesday October 4, and Arrow returns Wednesday the 5. Supergirlreturns Monday, Oct. 10, and Legends of Tomorrow returns Thursday, Oct. 13, all at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
Are you as stoked as we are for the return of the DC Superhero shows? Let us know your thoughts down below in the comments.
Could the Flash launch a rocket through speed alone?
