We’re talking CW’s Arrowverse MeGa-Crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, Tom Welling & Erica Durance from Smallville & our unseen Ashley Scott interview! Yup! Huntress Helena Kyle from Birds of Prey! This is a major HuMoNGoID geeked-out DC Comics episode and we’re getting into everything we know about the guests in Crisis on Infinite Earths to date!
We’ll start off with Brandon Routh! Piper was five years old when we took her to see Brandon in Superman Returns at a movie theater in Miami! We would have never thought that after all these years as Ray Palmer / ATOM from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon would “return” to his roots as Superman in an Arrowverse crossover! Seriously!? That’s really going all-out!
Next, Smallville! OK - Adam here. This one is my all-time favorite show. There were a few of quirks episodes over the ten year run, but overall, the writing, cinematography, and acting were just awesome (especially those discussions between Lex and Lionel Luthor! (We still joke about when Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) was known as “Sexy Lexy” in the early Smallville days). The Berlanti team has said more than once that without Smallville, there wouldn’t have been an Arrowverse. They’ve payed homage here and there in the past, but now…they’re bringing Tom Welling and Erica Durance, Lois and Clark, back together! We’re going to revisit the Kent Farm and see what they’re up to 10 years later! I’m super-excited about this one. If you like Superman lore and haven’t seen Smallville, you’re seriously missing out! Definitely get a hold of it and start watching!
We’re not finished yet! Next, we’re jumping over to an exclusive, unseen interview we did with Ashley Scott, aka The Huntress, Helena Kyle, about her role on Birds of Prey. (YES! She went by “Kyle” in the cult classic series instead of Helen Wayne.) Helena is the daughter of Batman and Batwoman…Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle! She’s from the bronze storyline (for those comic geeks out there). The new Birds of Prey movie with Margot Robbie involves a different iteration of the Huntress, Helena Bertinelli. Birds of Prey was a cult classic that only got one season! We highly recommend picking up the DVD! It’s got a cartoon mini-serious featuring some of the villainous women of the DC universe!
So, there’s a LOT of info in this episode and a super-special and rare interview with a younger Piper! Let us know whatchya think of this retro-style Piper’s Picks intro and what’s happening in the CW DC Arrowverse!
Thank you so much for watching, guyz!
