It looks like The Legends will be meeting a lot of new faces from the DC Universe, especially now with the mention of the Justice Society of America.
Season 2 premieres October 13th on The CW.
The Flash season 3 trailer:
Last season Barry went back in time and saved his mother, altering the world he once knew. In this alternate universe Barry no longer knows Joe or Iris and Cisco is now the richest man in America. In this trailer The Reverse Flash is back and informs Barry everything he is witnessing is a mirage. We also get a clip where Alchemy is written on the wall. For those not familiar with the DC Universe, Dr. Alchemy aka Mr. Element aka Albert Desmond is a notorious chemist with a personality disorder who uses talents as a chemist to create elemental weapons. According to Deadline, as Desmond, he works in the forsenics lab of Central City’s Police Department. Doctor Alchemy also possesses the Philosopher’s Stone which once belonged to Merlin. By pressing the stone it allows Doctor Alchemy to transmute any element into any other element (ie: Steel into rubber or healthy oxygen into deadly carbon monoxide). He also possesses the power to transform the human body, having once turned The Flash into a being of water vapor.
Kid Flash also makes an appearance in the trailer. Will we see Kid Flash and Barry team up to defeat Mr. Element and restore everything back to the way it was?
Season 4 premieres Tuesday October 4th on The CW.
Game of Thrones season 7 teaser:
This teaser gives a unique insight on the production of Game of Thrones. We get a glimpse of the craftsmanship that goes into creating this spectacular television series. A treat we don’t normally get to see.
Season 7’s release date has not yet been announced but we do know that this season will not start in April like it normally does. Due to weather delays and a need for snow, it looks like we may not see it air until May or June.
Arrow season 5 trailer:
In the aftermath of defeating the Ghosts and Damien Darhk, Oliver assembles a new team of heroes to help protect Star City. These members were inspired by Oliver’s relentlessness in spite of adversity and his ability to defeat Darhk.

We also see clips of Oliver in Russia and the rise of a new villain.
Season 5 premieres Wednesday October 5th, 8/7c on The CW.
Wonder Woman trailer:
Bada** woman alert! Warner Bros and DC Films are definitely doing Wonder Woman justice in this film. Gal Gadot perfectly embodies the bada**ery that is Diana Prince. The slow-mo shots of Gadot in action in this trailer are incredible. This trailer is giving us high hopes about the film in its entirety.
Wonder Woman hits the silver screen June 2nd, 2017.
Justice League trailer:
This trailer alone has turned me into SUPER GEEK! Aquaman, The Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg all coming at you while The White Stripes’s Iggy Thump plays in the background. Barry Allen is quirky and hilarious in this trailer. Aquaman is quite frightening and Cyborg is well your typical Cyborg. The IMDB cast listing for this movie is also swoon worthy. There are rumors of Iris West and The Joker making a cameo in this film. I may be reading too much into this but if an Arkham Guard has been cast in this film it must mean we are heading to Arkham Asylum at some point, which happens to be the last place we saw The Joker. Coincidence, maybe? Or maybe not?
Justice League hits theaters November 17th, 2017.
The Walking Dead season 7 trailer:
Season 7 premieres October 23rd on AMC.

As per IMDB, Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
This visually spectacular film hits theaters November 4th.
