    Interesting. Looks like they're going for a "Data" type situation where the actor plays both the creator and the android :cool:.

    Considering they were able to pull off Vision's look in live-action, and the Mardon brothers on Flash demonstrate how you can pull off weather-based powers, I hope we get a comic-accurate Red Tornado on the show :D.

    Or how on Young Justice, T.O. Morrow and his androids all had the same voice actor.

    I'm looking forward to see how they handle Red Tornado on the show. Wonder if any of the other robots built by Morrow will appear later on.

    He looks like Apocalypse's skinny brother. :D

    Oh, hey! Red Tornado! Uh...I guess I can appreciate that they at least tried, emphasis on tried, to evoke Red Tornado's look for the show. But the costume materials look pretty cheap, and not at all seamless compared to other Superhero costumes (even the ones on other TV shows) or RT's comic look, and he looks more like bad Vision cosplay then Red Tornado or an actual android :eek:.

    It's especially glaring that he's missing the forehead arrow and the blue cape though at least they can add the later if he turns good later on o_O.

    Hopefully it looks better in action than in that still-shot.

    I kind of like the face and the head. Not digging the overall look. Hopefully, he'll seem more robotic in show.

    The face IS the arrow.
    I'm more shocked given this show is supposed to have a more sizeable budget.

    Still don't get why these types of androids can't just be half-naked guys in metallic spray paint with intense contact lenses. If the Metal Men ever get adapted to live-action, I hope they're not also a mix between AoS's Deathlok and AoU's Vision.

    I think you'd need to go full CG with the Metal Men, especially with how much they can alter their shapes and their different body types :).

    I have to admit, after seeing Vision, and considering this show likely has a higher budget than the CW shows tend to do, I was expecting a Red Tornado who looked ripped from the pages and had a seamless and accurate costume. Can't say that's what we have here :(.

    Especially when his "armor" or "skin" looks like cheap rubber o_O.

    Now I noticed what's wrong with it.

    I was thinking Doug Jones's Silver Surfer when he's "grounded" (even during the T1000 scenes he's fully painted). When they have to change their form, obviously use CG.

    Ironic usage of this meme should be punishable by :mad:.
    Speculating that RT is just a WMD in his first intro, thus the need to look heroic might obviously be out the window. Maybe the Kryptonians are the only characters to have capes on this show.

    RT looking good, it will look even better in action with the special effects.
    :cool:

    It won't feel right if he doesn't get one good explosion scene.

    See Reactron, Hellgrammite, and Maxwell Lord in action:

    So they're actually doing it! Awesome :D.

    We better get a Flash/Supergirl race out of this :cool:.

    It'll also be neat to see how Flash's speed looks on a CBS budget compared to a CW one, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Gustin and Benoist on-screen together ;).

    I wonder if Barry just runs fast enough to that he accidentally winds up in Kara's world or in trying to close the breaches he ends up falling into one and popping up in Kara's Earth o_O?

    You know, I think that's what they have in mind. This would be the 2nd story previously adapted in the DCAU to be adapted on Supergirl, the first being the next episode (adapting Alan Moore's "For the Man Who Has Everything").

    And the shared TV DCU continues to one up the cinematic DCU.

    I'm thinking when the Flash appears, it will be the an older/future Barry instead of the present Barry. I just feel with how the TV DCU is always getting bigger (and especially with alternate dimensions, time travel, the multiple earths, etc). As an older/future Barry, the CW show can just ignore the meeting instead of just adding that to plate. There's just soooooo much going on in the CW DCU, Supergirl just makes soooooo much more going on.

    Didn't think a crossover was going to happen this soon (if at all). Certainly looking forward to it. Most likely more than I am for Dawn Of Justice (which this episode airs the Monday following the opening weekend).

    As excited as I am, I find it weird that there's a crossover between Flash and Supergirl. Supergirl has established that Superman has been around for a few years and they never once mentioned Superman or alien life in the DCTV universe.
