The CW DC shows are rolling out Crisis on Infinite Earths.

This one is going to be more than just the culmination of multiple shows on CW (Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman). They're also pulling in Black Lightning (which was launched independent of the other shows) and previous DC installments, such as Smallville, Birds of Prey, the 1990s Flash TV show and the Christopher Reeve Superman films (from which Superman Returns emerged).

So this is going to be as much a play to fans of DC as it is about building to a major event, like MCU.

They are making the same mistakes the comics did. --- Yohe

Looks like the Black Widow film could be set at some point prior to timeframe of the Infinity War film.

The trailer at least suggests this isn't taking place in a time frame pre-first Iron Man film, as was the case with Captain Marvel and the first Captain America film.


Yeah - it's set between Civil War and Infinity War, when Nat turned on Tony and sided with Steve as a fugitive. That doesn't mean they might not have some flashbacks within it.

Also, if it's a massive hit, they still have the five years between Infinity War and Endgame within which to make another Widow movie. We saw in that stretch Nat taking over the Fury role in that period, and interacting with other Avengers who went out on missions. If this thing makes a billion world wide, which is entirely possible in that Lead Off spot next May, there is going to be huge pressure to make more Widow movies. For all the talk of Florence Pugh (Yelena Belova / Black Widow) taking over the Widow role in the "real time" period of the Next Phase of the MCU... its really Johansson who make/breaks this Widow movie. If $1.1B could make Sony and Disney work out their issues over the next set of Spidey movies, $1B will make Disney beg Johansson to make more Widow movies.

BTW Steve - did you see that Marvel confirmed in the summer that they're going to do a MCU Fantastic Four?

No I didn't . but they have to do something with the FF. It started everything & was there top comic for years. It being the failure must be killing Marvel's ego. And I'm not sure if there is a way to make them major. So much time has passed with the Marvel Universe that their character development would be way behind all the other hero's. In the comics FF was special, the leaders, and all the other hero's came after them. On film, where were they when the world was falling apart? You would have to start them over as a new thing. Make them young & forget the comic history. That's not the FF. I don't know how they do that. My only solution is to not have them be part of the Marvel Universe. Or reboot the whole Universe. And really is the FF worth it to them. They are doing very well without them. Fans could care less. --- Yohe
