‘Arrow’ Might Still Use Flashbacks After Season 5, Says Producer

Arrow Season 5 Flashbacks Ending Future
The CW

Among Arrow struggles in recent seasons, the show’s flashback structure has had increasing difficulty connecting to the present, as one Oliver moves toward the killer vigilante of Season 1, and another moves toward the DC hero we know.

That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at America's realest hero of them all, GI Joe! For example, did you know that the "GI" in "GI Joe" doesn't stand for "gastro-intestinal"? It's true. This fact isn't actually in the video, but it is the kind of knowledge you can expect to pick up from this bad boy, which does include a chance meeting at the urinals, a subliminal message for dweebs, and a semi-fictional human who became more fictional when a different fictional human didn't want to be fictional in a different way. It, uh, makes more sense in context, kind of.

James Gunn Explains Why the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Comic-Con Footage Isn’t Online


In recent years, studios have begun putting their special Comic-Con teasers and sizzle reels online in an effort to combat piracy — although the footage is meant to be a Comic-Con exclusive, they’d rather let the fans at home see it the way it was intended instead of watching a blurry, shaky version that someone recorded on a cell phone. Even still, there are some pieces of footage that don’t make their way online, like the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser. If you’re wondering why you haven’t been able to see it, James Gunn has an answer.

Ever since I first saw Pizzazz, Roxy, and Stormer enter this world by literally crashing through a wall on motorcycles shaped like guitars, I knew they were destined for bigger things. Sure, they're a little villainous, and they're definitely antagonistic, but there's no way that they were going to spend all of their times playing second fiddle to Little Miss Pink-Hair and the Singalongs, right?

Now, the time in the spotlight has finally come for everyone's favorite mischief-makers: At San Diego Comic-Con, IDW announced an upcoming Misfits series, spinning out of the events of the ongoing Jem and the Holograms comic, written by Kelly Thompson with covers by M. Victoria Robado, and interiors by an artist to be announced later.
