The CW Superheroes Wear Face Masks in Promotional Posters: ‘Real Heroes Wear Masks’

The CW Unveils Promotional Posters for Superhero Shows Wearing Face Masks

Cape? Check! Face mask…. check!

The superheroes of The CW are suiting up to battle their biggest enemy yet — COVID-19. 

The CW released posters for its 2021 superhero shows and Black Lightning, The Flash, Black Canary and even BeeBo from Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Superman from the upcoming Superman & Lois, and Stargirl are all donning their face masks. 

It’s not only a sign of the times, but it’s a gentle reminder that it’s important to do your part and wear a mask in public to curb the spread of the virus. 

I guess the idea is if a superhero can fight off the bad guys in one, you can wear it when you go to the store. Each photo features the tagline: “real heroes wear masks.”

Both Supergirl and The Flash wrapped up their seasons ahead of scheduled due to the pandemic that shut down all TV and film productions in mid-March. 

Black LightningStargirl and Legends of Tomorrow were all successfully able to wrap up their seasons. 

Meanwhile, the Superman & Lois series, which piggybacks off of the couple’s appearance in Supergirl and the Arroweverse crossover, scored a straight-to-series order but was unable to film a pilot. 

Of course, the pandemic didn’t just affect past seasons, it also affects upcoming seasons as only a limited number of show’s have been able to resume production with a number of safety protocols in place. 

The production delays forced The CW to delay most of its scripted dramas that usually premiere in the fall to a 2021 release date as part of the spring lineup. This includes Batwoman (with its new lead Javicia Leslie), Charmed, All American, Black Lightning, The Flash, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and Legacies. New show Walker is also being held till midseason as the network hopes the shows can get back on track. 

The network is filling the schedule with completed series’ and streaming shows like Swamp Thing and Tell Me a Story, acquired from DC Universe and CBS All Access, respectively, to fill in the gaps. International shows Dead Pixels and Coroner will also fill out the schedule. 

The only staple series airing new episodes will be the final season of Supernatural, which wrapped up production prior to COVID-19.

Joseph Morgan Reveals If He’d Ever Reprise His Character Klaus Mikealson for ‘Legacies’

Published

on


If you’ve been waiting for the day where Klaus Mikealson strolls back into Mystic Falls to pay his daughter, Hope Mikealson, and the Salvatore School — which he helped fund — a visit, well, don’t get your hopes up. 

The first two seasons of Legacies have given us some grade-A guest stars from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals including Aunt Freya (Riley Voekel), Kai Parker (Chris Wood), and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).  We even briefly saw Lizzie and Josie Saltzman’s birth mother Josette (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe). 

But as for baddie Klaus Mikealson, the man who brought him to life, Joseph Morgan, doesn’t think he’ll ever reprise his role again.

And turns out, he has a really good reason!

TV Guide caught up with the actor to talk about his Peacock show, Brave New World, and when asked about guest starring on The CW teen drama, he bluntly and rapidly shut down the possibility.

“No never, never. You’re never going to see it.” Morgan said. “You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2. So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

As much as we’d like to see Klaus in the flesh again, you have to admit that’s a satisfactory answer. It shows that Morgan cares enough about the character not to reprise him without a purpose or taint his legacy. 

Klaus Mikealson’s story came to a fitting end in the series finale of The Originals when he redeemed himself for the greater good and sacrificed himself alongside his brother Elijah to save his daughter. Since then, Hope has carried on his legacy; his memory lives on as she mentions him pretty often and channels what he taught her to protect her friends and fight off a plethora of demons and monsters. 

Morgan added that he felt like series creator Julie Plec understood where he was coming from. 

“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Morgan continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.” 

Morgan may get a pass, but Candace Accola surely doesn’t.  We’d love to see her reprise her role of Caroline Forbes considering she’s raising two daughters with Alaric but has yet to pay them a visit or help out with the school! Don’t let us down, Caroline! 

The fact that she is still alive in the supernatural world and has such close ties to Mystic Falls but yet never comes to visit doesn’t paint her in a great light!

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the television landscape more than we’d like to admit.

Since mid-March, most TV show productions have been shuttered due to the outbreak, and with things so uncertain, it’s unclear when shows will begin filming again. 

Naturally, this affects the upcoming season. 

Many networks have been improvising with FOX revealing a 2020-2021 lineup that revolves heavily around NFL (pending the season returns on time) and animated shows. 

Now, The CW has made a bold move and unveiled their fall 2020-2021 schedule, which reveals that most of its scripted dramas will be pushed back until the spring 2021 TV season. 

The network is filling the schedule with completed series’ and streaming shows like Swamp Thing and Tell Me a Story, acquired from DC Universe and CBS All Access, respectively, to fill in the gaps. International shows Dead Pixels and Coroner will also fill out the schedule. 

The only new series airing will be the final episodes, which were finalized prior to COVID-19, of Supernatural.

All scripted dramas including RiverdaleNancy DrewBatwomanLegacies, and more will be held until January 2021. This include new series orders for Superman and Louis and Jared Padelecki’s Walker, Texas Ranger spinoff.
