CW Drops A Full Length Super Hero Crossover Trailer

The date is finally nearing and The CW has dropped a full length trailer for the Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, and Legends Of Tomorrow crossover.  It shows us a lot more of what the threat is and what we have in store.  How Supergirl makes it onto Earth 1 is still unknown but we’ll get to see what is probably our best bet for the live action Justice League on TV now with the DC movies in full swing.  So feast your eyes below and get ready for November 28th.

Why the World Doesn’t Need Superman (to have his own show)

After Tyler Hoechlin’s pitch perfect turn as the Man of Steel on Supergirl’s premiere episode, the internet lit up with demands that Supes return to the small screen with a show of his own. At first glance, it feels right; Hoechlin, as well as the writing team on Supergirl, did such a great job at bringing some levity back to the big, blue boy scout, that naturally, you want more. He took turns doing the day saving with Supergirl, he thanked random DEO agents for their service, and Rao save us, he actually smiled!

Kevin Smith has proof that a girl can fly.

On his last day of his directing gig on the CW’s Supergirl, Kevin Smith decided to show fans a peek behind the magic veil of television production. In the 9 1/2 minute video that he posted to his Facebook, Smith attempts to keep composure and not geek out (spoiler alert: it doesn’t work out well) as he shows us how it “takes a village” to get a Supergirl in the air.

It’s funny to watch Smith fanboy out at the process. It’s also cool to see everything that goes into getting those moments of action. As Smith says, it really is something that we as viewers take for granted because we only see the end result.

Give it a look below.


Kevin Smith directs the 11th episode of Supergirl entitled “Supergirl Lives” (assuredly more than just a coincidental reference to his attachment to the ill-fated Superman Lives) which airs later this season on Mondays at 8/7 Central on the CW.
