    A show about superhero TV shows, movies, and…comic books?! This week, in preparation for the upcoming WandaVision series, we take a look at the 2015-2016 run of The Vision, written by Tom King with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta, colors by Jordie Bellaire. Hot topics include the importance of family, a superhero story with no villains, and what it means to be human. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we discuss casting rumors for Marvel’s Moon Knight series, the return of the CW’s superhero shows, and what—if anything—we’re excited about.

Plus, we sneak in a little Star Trek talk. Of course.

We kick off by discussing the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, then discuss the divergence of DC and Marvel’s approaches to telling stories in their cinematic universes. Then, it’s a brief foray into the upcoming Stargirl show, and the end of the the Marvel Television universe. Finally, a thought-provoking letter about real-life superheroes.

    26 Crisis on Infinite Earths, Episodes 1-3

    The event more than a year in making has arrived. Will the Flash vanish? Will Oliver Queen bite the dust? What conspiracies can we find in this drawer? Our three paragons take on DC’s ultimate crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and discuss the best fan service, how sometimes plots make no sense, and what might be the ultimate impact on the world formerly known as the Arrowverse.

    25 Arrow S8E7: “Purgatory”

    And so it ends back where it begins. On this week’s episode of Arrow we’re going back to an island, but not for five years. We discuss Ollie channeling his whiny younger self, why you should always keep DNA samples of your cast, and what the heck is up with these ghosts? Then in our Superhero Sweep segment we try to figure out what the fallout from Crisis on Infinite Earths might be and discuss the newly released Black Widow trailer. Finally, our Letters Page addresses some lingering Arrow questions.

    24 Arrow S8E6: “Reset”

    This week’s episode of Arrow throws us for a loop—a time loop. We talk about the lessons Ollie needs to learn before Crisis, the return of another much-missed face, and a fitting goodbye for both the characters and for us. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we discuss the “problem” with Superman and talk very generally about the trailer for Birds of Prey and Watchmen. Finally, our Letters Page takes us into the realm of sports, and somehow nobody ever mentions Sportsmaster. What’s up with that?

    What would the final season of Arrow be without a trip to Russia, that magical land where Oliver Queen did some Very Bad Things. And this time, bring the kids! We discuss a fitting cap for our favorite ex-gangster, possible motivations for Lyla’s mission for the Monitor, and why branding matters with your weapons. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we talk briefly about Batwoman before we continue gearing up for Crisis on Infinite Earths, and in the Letters Page we’ve got lightning round, superhero shows for Apple TV+, and supervillain identities—oh my!

    22 Arrow S8E4: “Present Tense”

    We’re going BACK…to the present this week, as Arrow smushes together some disparate plotlines and this season finally starts to get in gear. We discuss standout scenes, conspiracy theories about the Monitor, and how you get cell phone reception in the past. Plus, have none of these people ever seen a time travel movie? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, it’s hurray for some sequels and speculation about the future of the MCU. Finally, in our Letters Page, we field an offspring-related query.

    21 Arrow S8E3: “Leap of Faith”

    Our team of assassins turned heroes returns this week with episode 3 of Arrow’s swan song season. We talk about when an Indiana Jones homage doesn’t quite land, the characters that we wish were around this week, confusing motives from an inscrutable being, and a…surprisingly promising ending? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we speculate about the announcement of a Superman & Lois show in development and whether the Arrowverse can support yet another super-show, plus rumors of a Green Lantern show over on HBO Max Awesome Supreme. Finally, in the Letters Page, we speculate about one thing that could improve a show. And Guy and John take new jobs in a surprising location.

    The Greatest Hits of Arrow continue as we return to the scene of Season 3: Hong Kong. We discuss the callbacks that we appreciated, emotional conversations with some weight, and letting a spinoff stand on its own two feet. Plus, the twist that we sort of saw coming? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we continue our discussion of Batwoman, and mull over Jeph Loeb’s departure as Marvel TV czar. Finally, in our Letters Page, we choose the superpowers that we’ve always wanted.

    It’s only appropriate that the former Speedy Arrowcast crew returns to a funhouse-mirror Star City for the premiere of Arrow’s final season. We discuss familiar faces with a twist, the zingers that we stood up and applauded, and threading the needle of a final season and a massive crossover. In our Superhero Sweep segment, we discuss the season premiere of The Flash and the much improved second episode of Batwoman, then take a jaunt over to our Letters Page for some feedback about the Arrow premiere and where our thinking is on Joker.

    It’s off to Gotham City this week, as we take a look at the latest show in the CW superhero stable, Batwoman. Discussion points include surprisingly deep side characters (and the lack thereof), not dragging out twists, and why you should always have twice as many security personnel as attendees at your “movies at the park” night. Plus, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we talk about Martin Scorsese not caring for superhero movies, and why it shouldn’t matter, and what an oddball Nicolas Cage is. On our Letters Page, we field questions about the recently cancelled Ghost Rider project and how to pitch superhero shows to your loved ones.
