Any Arrow fan well-knows that Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke has served as the series’ peak villain, though convoluted movie plans have largely kept the character offscreen since. Now, it appears as if the series’ 100th episode will at last feature Deathstroke’s return, but is Manu Bennett behind the mask?
Normally, no one would bat an eye at Arrow indulging in a little celebratory trip down memory lane for its 100th episode, but the hour’s placement in a four-way CW crossover changes the game just a bit. As such, a new photo from the centennial’s table read reveals a surprising guest star from the series’ past, whose presence opens up a whole new quiver of questions.
Arrow will celebrate a number of milestones in Season 5, not only the completion of its five-year flashback cycle, but also its 100th episode early on. Said centennial will serendipitously fall during the big four-way crossover, and the hour’s choice of director suggests we’ll see the most action-heavy Arrow yet.
Team Arrow will be getting a major overhaul in Season 5, and we don’t just mean the personnel. Where previously we learned that Wild Dog, Artemis, Mr. Terrific and more would be training alongside Oliver, see the fully-costumed team revealed in the latest trailer!
More and more, TV and film actors of the DC universe have been able to appreciate one another’s shared roles. We’ve seen one Flash digging another’s costume, and now Arrow star Manu Bennett weighs in on Joe Manganiello taking the role of Deathstroke to the big screen for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie.
Hard as it is to believe that October is nearly upon us, a return to The Flash and Arrow more than smooths over the changes. And speaking of changes, see for yourself what Flash has to offer in a new synopsis for Season 3 premiere “Flashpoint,” and ditto for the kickoff of Arrow Season 5's “Legacy”!
It doesn’t appear as if Constantine will be returning to The CW just yet (though Matt Ryan has his own Justice League to attend to), so where best to get your fix of the chain-smoking demon-detective? NBC’s Constantine will officially hit Blu-ray in October, after time spent on CW Seed.
The CW already has in mind a fall 2016 schedule with four DC dramas during the week, so why not make it five? CW Seed’s animated Vixen re-enters the fray with a Season 2 premiere the very same week as Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
The third year of CW crossovers was already big enough between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, before Supergirl unexpectedly flew into the fray. And while most details of the four-way teamup remain under wraps, producers suggest that Supergirl itself will play a limited role in the upcoming crossover.
The moment DC TV power-player Greg Berlanti had in mind to develop Black Lightning as its own series, we knew it’d move fast. So it is, that FOX has nabbed the new DC drama, with a pilot production commitment for the future.
