In anticipation of their returning shows, the CW has dropped a couple of trailers giving fans a taste of what they can expect in the back halves of each series. Take a look. Set your DVR’s to record folks, cause DCTV week has arrived! With The Flash airing tonight, followed by Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow on Wednesday and Thursday, fans of comic book television are getting everything they can handle.
Starting off with Arrow, the lighter tone adopted for the majority of the past two seasons seems to have disappeared (for the most part). Picking up from the tragic events of the midseason finale, Oliver begins to question his decision to become a vigilante if he can’t even keep his loved ones protected. With a dying Felicity in the hospital, those are some valid questions.
We also get a look at the return of Katana and Roy Harper as well as a number of villains set to make a comeback. The action looks to be ramped up and the drama is sure to be at an all time high. If Damien Dahrk continues to be a badass, Arrow should be a lot of fun going forward.
Moving onto The Flash, it’s all about speed! The back half of the season promises a heavy focus on Zoom, but we will also get the return of the Reverse-Flash (not the Earth 2 version, the same one that vanished in season 1)! Jay Garrick can be seen donning his Flash suit once again and we still don’t know much about Wally West’s contribution to the show. In any case, there is a ton to be stoked for.
There is also a large emphasis on doppelgängers in the trailer. Killer Frost is seen with her evil hubby Deathstorm (Danielle Panabaker and Robbie Amell). They aren’t the most menacing looking villains in the world but it should be fun to see these actors we’ve come to love over the course of the series take on a new challenge.
Still no hints to who Zoom might be though (it’s totally Eddy!)
