The news is moving fast today and yesterday! Superman and Lois have added two new cast members which really rounds out their entire cast and the return dates for all the Arrowverse shows is up and unfortunately it's going to be a bit of a wait until we get new episodes. That said, the CW did give us at least a little bit of a gift. Today we are seeing a new post of the Arrowverse's newest power couple, Clark Kent aka Superman and Lois Lane! The poster centers on Superman and Lois but a third "character" does hide in the background. We talking about the iconic, Daily Planet! Move over Catco! Check out the poster for yourself below!

The Arrowverse just took another "Crisis On Infinite Earths" type hit today but it wasn't through the fictional narrative. This hit comes from the Covid-19 outbreak! The shows all should be back filming now doing their season openers and making content for San Diego Comic Con but with the convention cancelled and quarantine still in effect, no new production can begin. To cover the gap in fall scheduling, The CW purchased four existing shows to air coming this fall. Notably, Swamp Thing was acquired from the DC Universe streaming platform to air this year. Looking at the dates for the return of our favorite shows, it is seriously implied that we won't get new episodes until 2021. The new schedule is as follows:
- 8/7c: Batwoman
- 9/8c: Black Lightning
- 8/7c: The Flash
- 9/8c: Superman & Lois
Legends of Tomorrow has traditionally been a mid-season starter so no surprises there, but a big gap that is glaring is that Supergirl is not listed on the schedule. This is likely due to series star Melissa Benoist's pregnancy and maternity leave. Additionally, the big annual crossover event has been downsized quite a bit. Current coversations are that a Superman & Lois will do a two hour crossover with Batwoman. Could this be Batman related? DCTV.news has reached out to The CW for more information. We'll add that here as soon as we learn more.

The Legends aren't resting! While we wait for next week's episode, we have the synopsis for the one airing on May 26th. And it looks like they'll be travelling through various TV shows. After seeing their brief foray through Mr. Parker's Cul de Sac, we're certain this will be another fantastic trip for the Legends, and from what we can tell, they will be causing quite a stir within TV genres. Check out the Synopsis below:
BREAKING FREE – After Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) does the one thing that goes against her nature when it comes to her sisters, she tries to protect the Legends by scattering them in different television shows. Of course, in true Legends style some can’t just be blissfully ignorant and happy but figure out a way to end up messing with the system. Caity Lotz, Jes Macallan, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Olivia Swann and Matt Ryan also star. Marc Guggenheim directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree & James Eagan (#514). Original airdate 5/26/2020.

When it rains, it poors! More casting information has been revealed about Superman and Lois! According to Deadline.com, Inde Navarrette has been cast to play Sarah Cushing. Sarah is the daughter of Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez). This is a very intresting development for the show. Sarah will be friends with both of the Kent boys which will tie Lois and Clark to the Cushings a bit more. Additionally, if the Kent boys start to develop abilities, Sarah will be an interesting character to either hide those abilities from, or trust her to know their secret! Sarah Cushing is described as:
Navarrette’s Sarah Cushing, the daughter of Kyle (Valdez) and Lana (Chriqui), is a whip smart, super cool wild child with some demons in her past who becomes friends with the Kent boys, Jonathan and Jordan.

As they say in show business, the show must go on! Despite all television production being halted due to the coronavirus, Superman and Lois has beeing given a straight to series order by the CW and that means you have to keep the show moving. We've seen many casting choices for the show recently including a recast for the role of Sam Lane. We say recast because Sam Lane has already appeared on Supergirl played by Glenn Moshower in season 1. Today, despite the quarantine, according to deadline.com, showrunners have found their big bad for the first season! The part of "The Stranger" has gone to Wolé Parks. Parks has had a few roles but we remember him from season 2 of NBC's "Superstore". The Stranger is described as:
The Stranger is a mysterious visitor hellbent on proving to the world that it no longer needs Superman.
This premise of the world no longer needing Superman sounds pretty facsinating to us! Is he another Kryptonian? Alien from a race we haven't seen yet in the Arrowverse? Let us know your thoughts below and in our forum! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter for breaking news!!

The Legends keep knocking it out of the park with their wild adventures, and this time, they're landing in the middle of a zombie apocalypse! Add that to the fact that the Legends are now immortal for 24 hours, and as Ava so succinctly puts it, they won't die, it'll just hurt a lot. Which is the perfect position to be in when fighting an army of undead. From what we've seen in the trailer, it'll be more typical Legends hijinks and plenty of shenanigans. Check out the trailer below:

Doom Patrol is back! On June 25th, the lovable gang of unlikely heroes will be returning for Season 2 on both DC Universe and HBO Max. From the looks of it, the new season will have them coming together to take on a new threat, joined by their newest member, Nile's daughter, Dorothy Spinner. Considering they will have to deal with the emotional fallout of Niles' betrayal at the end of Season 1, they'll have to come together to defeat this newest threat. Check out the release with the season's synopsis below:
DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
Doom Patrol is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess serving as executive producers.
