Have you seen the CW Seed animated series – Freedom Fighters: The Ray? It is only 6 episodes of 6-8 min shorts, but it is so good! I may be biased being that it stars a gay superhero voiced by gay actor (and super hot) Russell Tovey, but it is a great series nonetheless. Check out my thoughts on this prequel series to the Crisis on Earth X CW Arrowverse TV crossover in the video attached.

Have you watched the Freedom Fighters: The Ray animated series on the CW Seed? It is only the first season of 6 shorts and each of the mini episodes are 6-8 mins long. Since I’m a huge Ray fan, I have been excited for this series to air ever since I heard it was being made. For clarity, I would have enjoyed it even if the main character of Raymond Terrill wasn’t being voiced by Russell Tovey.

It is a prequel series taking place before the Crisis on Earth X crossover series. I will do a video review on the series soon, but I just figured I would inform everyone in case anyone was not aware that it was out.

Check out the series for free over at the CW Seed at: www.CWSeed.com
There is also a message from the Trevor Project included that is presented by the Ray. I personally thought that in itself was great.

The first footage of CW’s gay superhero, the Ray has been released from San Diego Comic Con. The CW’s streaming service has released another animated series which starred Vixen in the past. This current series is titled Freedom Fighters: The Ray. In this we have our protagonist taking on evil versions of Arrow, Supergirl and the Flash in a parallel world where the Nazis won World War II.

Also appearing in this small clip is Black Condor, Phantom Lady, and Red Tornado of the Freedom Fighters. It should be known that the Ray is a gay superhero in the current DC Comic book continuity. The description of the character: Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.

Many new promos have come out for CW’s new Riverdale series. It’s been described as Twin Peaks meets teen drama. Archie himself is being played by KJ Apa. Most people have said that the show sounds edgy and dark and are excited. Others are saying it sounds interesting but want a balance between fun and mystery. Still even others want a much more light and funny series similar to the comic book.

We will have Josie and the Pussycats in the series, which is awesome! Maybe a spin off series could take place for a couple of the characters that have gotten their own comic book series. The cast seems great and of course they all very much a CW teen show. Which means all the teen actors are in the 20s and 30s and are very sexual. Sex sells, so it makes sense.

Also, Casey Cott has been cast as the gay character Kevin Keller. The actor is very excited about the show himself from his Tweets. Follow him at: Twitter.com/CaseyCott. I am excited to see how his story unfolds. Hopefully Kevin will not be ignored and will be a big part of the story. Honestly, I think Casey Cott is hotter than the actor playing Archie.

What do you think so far? You liking it or is this going to be ignored on your radar? I’m going it a shot myself and I hope it’ll play out great!
