In one week, there’s a new superhero (and new trailer), a old mean girl, and a new super-villain coming to National City … for CBS’ “Supergirl” for the crossover event in becoming the “World’s Finest” of superheroes – and super-villains. This episode finds the Flash crossing over from the CW and into the network streams of CBS in need of Supergirl’s help to get back home, and the Girl of Steel (Melissa Benoist) happily agrees in exchange for the Scarlet Speedster helping her against Livewire (Brit Morgan) and Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci).
So, who will win this race? Who is the fastest superhero alive?
He may have been fast enough as CW’s “Flash”, but Grant Gustin wasn’t fast enough to be cast in Zach Snyder’s “Justice League” opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
“I just don’t think it was a good fit,” Snyder told The New York Daily News. “I’m very strict with this universe and I just don’t see a version where…that (tone is) not our world. … Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multi-verse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible.”
Ezra Miller was chosen for the role of the Flash in the DC Cinematic Universe. The first part of “Justice League” is scheduled to begin shooting sometime next month with a 2017 release date, as part two is set for a 2019 release date with “The Flash” somewhere in the middle for a March 2018 release. “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” comes out this Friday, followed by the “Supergirl”/”Flash” crossover event next Monday.
