Forums - Movies Discussion - DC TV's Arrowverse Official Thread

This thread is to discuss about all things Arrowverse, from new show announcements, crossover episodes, Individual shows etc. I've also created this thread because there isn't an official topic for many of these shows and while they can be created at anytime, so far nobody has created them, this thread provides a place to discuss these shows, It also provides extra activity on the back of some of the larger shows while some of the smaller shows wouldn't get much activity on their own.

This thread may also be a good judge of how big certain fan bases are for individual shows and if someone were to want to create an official topic for a specific show I will be willing to discuss it and approve it if you're willing to put the effort in.

Warning: This thread will have discussion about the most recent episodes of many Arrowverse shows.

It would be helpful, though not a rule, If you state at the top of your post which show, season and episode you're talking about.

1. Synopsis for future episodes should be spoiler tagged along with any discussion regarding them, this rule also applies to articles and interviews which discuss future episodes.

2. Once an episode has officially started to air then spoiler tagging is no longer necessary.

Joe adopted Barry fourteen years ago after Barry’s mother was murdered and Barry’s father falsely received a life sentence for the crime. Then the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive. But Barry wasn’t the only person who was given abilities that night. The dark matter also created meta-humans, many of whom have wreaked havoc with their powers on the city.

About: Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe's (voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke) parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals -- anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from the threats like those that claimed her family.

About: Based on the popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray, and he'll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line‎, Constantine will use his skills to travel the country, find the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back where they belong.

About: All his life, Ray Terrill (Russell Tovey) has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him - because it is! The dying Ray of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero - The Ray. However, Ray quickly learns being a superhero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!

Tagging, to think it all started with arrow and now it has expanded to a big amount of shows, even animated ones

Around the Network

 Nice thread. Am in. 

Pretty much watch them all except Super Girl but after seeing those crossover episodes and some certain pictures on the net I think I'll give her a shot......the show that is.

I'm surprised that this thread hadn't been created before.

How are those shows these days? Arrow literally fell off a cliff halfway through season 3, and got progressively worse from there....last season I watched there was a blonde Darth Vader running around. Awful. Flash had a promising first season, but then for some reason they decided why put work into season 2 when you can just basically rehash the plot of the first season, but just add a lot more terrible CGI and cliche side plots to it....Watched up until a few episodes from the finale, hoping it would eventually turn the corner but...just couldn't bring myself to go on till the end.

Only ever watched like 2 episodes of Legends of Tomorrow. Didn't hook me. Never seen an episode of Supergirl, trailers made it look like a show pretty much exclusively for chicks.

Yeah I remember hearing about Flash coming into the universe and wasn't too sure about it

Constantine really should have been picked up for a live action series, definitely would have watched that too.

Cancel Supergirl to make room

I watch all the live-action shows except Supergirl, I watched the crossover with Flash and didn't like it but I will say she makes a great Supergirl and damn her chemistry with Barry is great.

Would be awkward if it was I searched around and couldn't find anything.

Tbh I'm surprised that we don't have OT's for a lot of TV Shows even the big ones, there seems to be a nice sized following for a few of them on VGC but no threads, in general the TV Section is pretty dead.
