SDCC 2017: WATCH: Trailer for Arrowverse animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray

July 23rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

A new animated online series from The CW, the guys behind the Arrow-verse, has debuted its trailer at SDCC.

The series, is set in a parallel universe wherein The Nazis won the war and now it’s up to a group of Freedom Fighters led by The Ray to save the world.

With Legends of Tomorrow setting up the idea that tinkering with time events can lead to serious consequences, the timing of this series is pretty significant.


In the trailer you’ll see The Ray, Red Tornado and Phantom Lady taking on – gasp! – Arrow, Flash and Supergirl.

It’s kind of cool that while the DC universe has the movies and the TV shows in a multiverse, The CW is setting uo its own multiverse within the multiverse.

How meta is that?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
