‘Supergirl’: First Look at the Guardian in Costume and More on His Surprising Ally

     October 14, 2016

Now that The CW’s full slate of superhero TV has premiered for this jam-packed fall season, we’re getting a good idea as to how all of these various superheroes will mesh together. The seasons are off to a strong start, especially after having shaken things up in their previous seasons by either moving networks, creating time paradoxes, dismantling a veteran crime-fighting team, or usurping the folks who control all events across time. The CW doesn’t screw around. And as you can see below, the network has very big things in store for this coming season across the board.

Here’s a look at today’s round-up of DC TV superhero series news in brief:

  • Supergirl – Star Mehcad Brooks, who plays James Olsen on the superhero series opposite Melissa Benoist‘s title character and newcomer Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, will get a heroic moniker of his own! He’ll star as Guardian, a DC Comics character created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon who’s been around in one version or another since 1942. Check out Brooks’ look below!
  • Vixen – Not to be left out in the superhero series discussion is this excellent, bite-sized animated series that features Megalyn Echikunwoke voicing the title character. This six-episode second season premiered just last night and will release new episodes each Friday as we follow along with the saga of Mari McCabe as she confronts her past and attempts to embrace her newfound powers. Oh, and there might just be some familiar faces who pop up along the way!
  • The Flash / Arrow / Legends of Tomorrow – While each of these shows is off to a solid start to their own seasons, they’ll crossover with Supergirl this November for an epic event that’s unlike anything The CW–and possibly any other network–has done before. We have some new details about this crossover and how it connects to the DC Comics, which you can read below.
