What You Missed on Day 3 of #SDCC – #TheCW Edition and More…

Soooooo much happened yesterday…

Legacies:

Yes, this is the spin-off of The Originals, which is the spin-off of the The Vampire Diaries and Alaric is in it. But do not let that sway you from going on to the next chapter of the TVD-Universe.

Think of it more like Hogwarts…

Legacies follows Hope Mikaelson, the daughter of Niklaus the Vampire and Hayley the Werewolf and she is also the related to a very powerful witch. She is called a tribird because of her lineage.

She ends up at the The Salvatore School of for the Young and Gifted. Yes…think of the X-Men, because in a way it is very similar. However, instead of mutants…we are dealing with magic.

These kids are kids and they suffer the same trials and tribulations of being a teenager, which is refreshing. Since almost all the vampires in the first two chapters of this  franchise….looked my age.

Hope is not alone, as we will see Alaric’s twin daughters in the school and we will also see Matt Donovan…and we will see Mystic Falls. It is up in the air if we will see anyone else from the past pop-up. Here’s hoping.

The Flash:

Parenthood came earlier than expected for our favorite crime-fighting couple. As Barry and Iris meet their daughter, Nora, from the future! We will also see The Flash Ring, along with some familiar and new faces…and Darth Vader?!?!?

Kidding aside, our new bad guy is called Ciada, Chris Klein and like all villains…he is a challenge to our hero.

But, the story of the little family proves to be interesting. Why? Well, Nora is super attached to her Dad and not to her Mom. That means something must have happened in the future for Nora to not want to me as chummy with her Mom.

Harry is back in a way, he will be called Sherlock Wells. That should be entertaining.

Barry is back at CSI, Iris is a journalist, Ralph will be a detective, Ralph and Cisco bond. Nora will use the jacket that Iris used. We’ll find out what drives Killer Frost to be Killer Frost.

The 100th episode will be aired this season and it will be directed by Tom Cavanaugh and it will also be the mid-season finale…so prepare yourselves.

Casting wise…there will be an LGBT character on the show and a younger version of the Rogues.

Arrow:

Inmate 4587 has been in jail for five months and he seems to be deadlier than ever, but he is trying to reel it in like Kung-Fu, the TV show. His city is being overrun by vigilantes…trying to fill the void of the Arrow. Everyone is in danger, but desperate times calls for desperate measures.

As the show has always been dark, it is even more darker this season. Felicity no longer wants to be a victim or have someone watching her back. Diggle is working at A.R.G.U.S. Dinah is fighting crime the legal way, as she is a cop. Curtis is just, “Chillin.” But, Rene feels that he has to pick up where Oliver left off, but then there is Roy who may be the Vigilante. Black Siren looks like the Mayor and she has outlawed vigilantism, you know that does not fly in this city.

We will see the Longbow Hunters aka Red Dart, Kodiak, and the Silencer…who will be played by Holly Elissa, Michael Jonsson, and Miranda Edwards. Red Dart is described as a ruthless and precise killer, Kodiak is a man who is a beast and uses brute force, and Silencer is a master of stealth.

William, Oliver’s son has the most interesting story arc this season.

Supergirl:

The trailer reminded me of the head space where Batman was at the beginning of Batman v. Superman. Where there wan an anti-alien agenda a foot.

Manchester Black, played by David Ajala, is the villain of the season. He is a telekinetic and the leader of the Elite.

Other new cast, we will see a trans superhero, played by Nicole Maines. They also have April Parker Jones as Colonel Haley.

There has been a lot of talk about Batwoman and there was a tease about Alex meeting Kate Kane, Batwoman, during the crossover.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow:

As this team evolves every year, we start the season at Woodstock in the summer of love, as this lovable crew are now considered fugitives.

In the new season, we get two new characters, that will join Matt Ryan (Constantine), Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe), and Courtney Ford (Nora Darhk)as series regulars:

Ramona Young joined the cast to play Alaska Yu and Tom Wilson is playing Nate’s Dad, Hank Heywood.

Black Lightning:

The characters we’ve come to know over the course of one season is trying to stay together as a family, as everything around them is threatening to pull them apart.

Jordan Calloway, Khalil Payne, his now a series regular for Season 2.

Tobias Whale ass a new level of power and he gets tested.

Robert Townsend and Bill Duke are playing new characters on the show.

And here is the trailer for Roswell, NM:

The Gifted:

There is a time jump and a new location in season 2 of the Fox Marvel show. We may see Reed display some powers this season as the show confronts discrimination.

Polaris is still severely pregnant and the repercussions of that on her powers, and then there is the Baby Daddy (Eclipse) who is distraught at the loss of his love and baby. Thunderbird and Blink are still going strong. As to be expected, there will conflict…internal and external…as we meet new mutants. One thing was clarified…no crossover with Legion, which makes sense.

Casting News:

Midnight, TX added to their roster of magical misfits.

Nestor Carbonell is portraying Kai, an energetic, holistic healer. Jaime Ray Newman is playing Patience, Kai’s wife and they have opened a new age healing center in Midnight. People in town think that they are con men, but Patience has her eye on Manfred.

Walker (Josh Kelly) is an openly gay demon hunter and bonds with Joe.

And one of the shows I am really looking forward to Deadly Class Trailer:

The other show I am dying to see is the Umbrella Academy and we got a teaser image a few days ago.:

Umbrella

The Umbrella Academy revolves around The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin and they work together to figure out their father’s mysterious death. As it is in any family, personality clashes threaten their ability to work together. This show will air on Netflix.

The cast includes:

  • Ellen Page as The White Violin
  • Tom Hopper as Spaceboy
  • Robert Sheehan as The Séance
  • Emmy Raver-Lampman as The Rumor
  • David Castañeda as The Kraken
  • Aidan Gallagher as Number Five
  • Mary J. Blige as Cha-Cha
  • Cameron Britton as Hazel
  • Colm Feore as The Monocle
  • Adam Godley as Pogo
  • John Magaro as Leonard Peabody
  • Ashley Madekwe as Detective Patch
  • Kate Walsh as The Handler

This show will air on Netflix.

Also, it is hard to cover such a big event after playing D&D for seven hours and only getting four hours of sleep.

But, we are on the fourth and final day…Hazzah!
