There was a lot happening at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con… the Hulk speaks, Steppenwolf revealed, young Harry Mudd, new X-Men, and Will Smith in Bright… and here’s a round-up of some of the more exciting trailers and teasers released this weekend, starting with the most anticipated of all, Stranger Things 2, right after the jump…
After what happened on last week’s episode of The Flash was pretty much a waste of time, as the plan neither worked nor advanced the plot much at all, one hopes this episode is different. The Flash recruits archenemy Captain Cold in his war against Savitar and they run afoul of King Shark – if nothing else, this will be exciting. Meet me after the super speed jump for my review of “Infantino Street.”
This week we’re introduced to Tracy Brand, the scientist who will eventually build the trap that keeps Savitar in the Speed Force. More than that, we finally learn the identity of The Flash‘s greatest enemy, Savitar. Big secrets in this episode, meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “I Know Who You Are.”
Back from the dead, and back from Hell in the last episode, Ghost Rider and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready for the real enemy, the matter manipulating Elias Morrow. All agents are on board, including the big guns – Quake, Yo-Yo, and even Aida. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics.”

As their mothership approaches the Earth for their final assault, can the united heroes of our world save us? Find out after the jump in my review of the concluding chapter of “Invasion!”
The television crossover event of the season, Heroes v Aliens, continues here in this week’s episode of Arrow. To catch up on the Dominators’ attack on the Earth, you can click here for the first night with Supergirl, and here for the second night with The Flash. We’re under attack by aliens, and as the heroes regroup to fight back – five of them are kidnapped and subjected to mental probing. Meet me after the jump to find out what happens to Green Arrow, Speedy, Spartan, White Canary, and the Atom, in “Invasion!”
On Supergirl this week, we saw Barry and Cisco journey to her universe to ask for help, and now in this episode of The Flash, we find out what for. As the Flash, Green Arrow, Supergirl, the Legends of Tomorrow, and more join forces against alien attack, meet me after the super speed, extra-dimensional, and interstellar jump for my thoughts on “Invasion!”
Television crossovers rarely happened in the past, and when they did, it was more in the way of a backdoor pilot or a guest-star role. Things like Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley spring to mind, but there were full-blown crossovers in the past – doctors from St. Elsewhere visited the bar Cheers, and Charlie’s Angels solved a mystery on The Love Boat – but in an age where we have huge extended continuities like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it happens a lot more often. Meet me after the jump and we’ll discuss one of the most ambitious crossovers in recent television history – Heroes v Aliens, Invasion in the Arrowverse!
We’ve been given a gift as far as superhero television goes in The Flash. Not only have we’ve gotten a terrific, accessible, and entertaining TV series about superheroes, they have also gone above and beyond when it comes to presenting hardcore comic book mythos on the small screen. After all, who would have ever thought we’d ever get the DC Multiverse on prime time TV? We have the Invasion, Gorilla City, and more crossovers and team-ups coming, but what else could we get? Meet me after the super speed jump and I’ll give you my top ten things I want to see on The Flash!
