The CW has established itself as the home of hour-long shows based on comic book characters, and it looks to continue to expand that roster. But instead of adding to the “Arrowverse,” based on the DC Comics characters, we may get a new show with ties to RIVERDALE.
It’s once again time to take a look at some of the trailers that catch my as we look to the future to see what will entertain us in the coming months.
In two of the bigger releases this week – in my opinion, anyway – the Riverdale gang deals with the repercussions of last month’s cliffhanger in Archie, while Bruce starts to tell Selena a story over in Batman.
Sometimes, you get a couple of kids who just don’t like each other but manage to work together for the greater good, like in Super Sons. Other times, it leads to a drag race between Archie and Reggie.
The CW’s RIVERDALE, a dark adaptation of the classic Archie Comics characters, finished its first season last week. Taking the usually clean-cut characters in a direction David Lynch would have enjoyed, the show had a lot of controversial takes on the kids.
The CW is going pretty full-on with adaptations. Last night it debuted it’s latest series, a classic series with a modern twist and it’s somewhat blown my mind.
When Archie Comics announced almost two years ago that it was going to update its main characters for a new comic book line, there was a lot of hesitation over whether a modern Archie could work. That’s going to pale in comparison to what’s coming next month.
