Arrow Season 4 didn’t fail fans of Comic-Con 2015, debuting a new costume, villain and DC details by its Superhero Saturday panel, but Oliver Queen has officially taken one more step toward his comic namesake. We now know the title of October’s Arrow Season 4 premiere, and it look like Malcolm’s Season 1 naming suggestion has finally stuck.

The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has Arrow and Flash fans up in arms over what to expect from the epic time-traveling DC crossover, but the Legends themselves are here to take the stage at Comic-Con 2015 to preview the new teamup series. Get a taste of DC TV’s past, present and future with our full Superhero Saturday coverage of Legends of Tomorrow!
As we prepare for the Arrow Season 4 panel at Comic-Con 2015, we’ve already been treated to a delightful surprise: Oliver has a brand new costume for the upcoming fourth season, giving our Starling City hero a fierce and highly-tactical new look as he prepares to re-enter the vigilante fray.
The CW’s big Comic-Con panel doesn’t get started until tomorrow evening, but they’ve already gone ahead and released a super-sized trailer that manages to tease Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. While the film side of DC comics seemingly stumbles around in the dark, this trailer is so full of confidence that it feels ready to burst at any moment. Who would have thought three TV shows starring B-level superheroes could look this epic and engender so much love from geeks and norms alike?
We’ve been eagerly awaiting news of Arrow’s Season 4 casting, particularly with regards to a certain Darhk-sided baddie. With CW hitting Comic-Con this week, it was only a matter of time before the beans were spilled, and it looks like they’re some good ones. Arrow has secured Neal McDonough to play the role of Starling City villain Damien Darhk in Season 4.
DC Collectibles kicked off San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with a preview event highlighting many of the bigger figures and series we'll be seeing over the course of the next 12 months. From continued support for the Icons and TV series lines to new Designer Series figures and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice pieces, there's a little bit of something for everyone in DC Collectibles' plans.
As cool as it was to see many of the new items on hand, the stars of the show were the characters getting the Darwyn Cooke touch as part of his Designer wave. Cooke's long been a favorite of mine, and his New Frontier figures from way back when are still some of the most stylish in my collection. Now that he's adding new takes on Batman, Supergirl, Adam Strange and Harley Quinn, I couldn't be happier. Combined with the expansion of the Batman: The Animated Series line to more obscure characters, 2015 and 2016 are shaping up to be a good time for clean, simple designs.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow pulled quite a bit of focus from Arrow and The Flash’s shared universe, so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the animated Vixen series on CW Seed. Now, the network has announced who will voice the iconic animal-wielding hero, as well as what Arrow and Flash stars will drop in on Vixen for some shared continuity.
Mondays will be for Supergirl come this October, while The Flash and Agents of SHIELD return to Tuesdays and Arrow is back on Wednesdays. With the CW confirming all of its fall premiere dates, we have a full calendar for the new and returning Marvel and DC super-shows on The CW, CBS and ABC this fall.
Last week brought news that both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash would speed onto DVD and Blu-ray in advance of their fall premieres, but even those attending the massive Superhero Saturday at Comic-Con 2015 needn’t wait for new material. Check out the full gag reel from Arrow Season 3's Blu-ray release, while you can!
