    Salim Akil interview. Pretty much confirms Tobias Whale is the big bad and seems open to using Static and crossing over with the Arrowverse later on.

    I'm curious to see when they'll explicitly confirm which Earth it takes place on...

    They probably want to wait on audience reaction and fix things here and there. Then like Supergirl, it can be explored. I'm mostly happy about Static. I can imagine him and Cisco together.

    Ah, this reminds me of the trailer for Legends of Tomorrow where virtually none of the footage in it ended up being in the pilot :p.

    I was wondering if we'd see Inspector Henderson on Supergirl but I guess the character allotments ended in Black Lightning's favor...

    Awesome to see Gambi will be in it too, and James Remar to boot :D.

    Predicting this now. CW will hold Legends of Tomorrow back until an opening in the schedule becomes available (Fridays?) during the winter. Remember, they have spring shows (i.e. iZombie) on the bench for that reason. Legends is losing its Tuesday berth, and that could spell the beginning of the end......

    Less than two months until it airs, and we have only gotten small remnants of promotional material...

    Will this show eventually cross over with the CW's other DC shows?
