In honor of the return of new Arrow-verse shows next week and The CW’s Winter TCA this past Sunday where they clarified their scheduling plans, today The Daily Download is focusing on latest trailers for all of your favorite DC shows.
As for scheduling, in case you haven’t heard: Because Black Lightning will be airing in the Legends‘ normal 9pm, Tuesday night slot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow won’t be back for a few weeks. On February 12, it’ll take over Supergirl‘s 8pm, Monday night slot spot for 9 weeks (which is the rest of its season run). And then, on April 16, Supergirl returns for the remainder of its season (ending on June 18). As The CW announced, it’ll be 23 consecutive weeks of new Supergirl/Legends episodes, which is pretty cool.
Today, we’re bringing you some of musical theater nerd love with an all too brief stinger for Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert; a trailer for the new David Letterman project on Netflix; and most importantly, the trailers for The CW’s Black Lightning which, while not new, are relevant as the series premiere is next week!
Today, First Look is focused on Syfy’s new show Krypton (set to premiere March 21). We got the first look at pics yesterday which in turn, we are bringing to you. Because, that’s how we roll. Gotta say, love the idea of the pre-Superman origin story.
Here is the official info on Krypton, “What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos).
“Krypton” is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe, Sipos and Ritson, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”), Elliot Cowan (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”), Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”), Wallis Day (“Will”), Aaron Pierre (“Tennison”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
I don’t like combining news into the daily “What To Watch” but it happens over the course of a day, something gets published or released that I want you to experience with me. I am going to try to gather those items into a separate daily post which I am calling, for right now, “The Daily Download.”
Today’s offerings include 3 minutes worth of The Brave, which returns next Monday, and a trippy trailer for The Magicians (ahead of Season 3’s premiere next Wednesday).
