The CW's Arrow really seems to be expanding its version of the DC Universe in its upcoming second season, and the newest DC character reportedly joining the fold could really blow the lid off things in terms of making the show's TV world a lot like the one in comics: Amanda Waller, who has been in charge of the Suicide Squad and Checkmate in her illustrious career as a sometimes-evil, sometimes-not government powerhouse.
Although no one has been cast for the role just yet, reports indicate that Waller will appear in this season's sixth episode as the head of A.R.G.U.S., the government investigative agency introduced near the end of the first season by way of Diggle's friend Lyla Michaels, a.k.a. Harbinger.
Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim posted the image above to his Twitter account yesterday, along with the vague message, "Coming to Arrow season 2." What did he mean exactly? The actual character Rex Mason, also known as The Element Man? A company named for him? A talking van? He didn't specify, so we'll just have to wait and see.
As I have said many times, The CW's Arrow is a pretty dark show to be as silly as it is sometimes. One might suspect that the network's new series featuring Barry Allen as The Flash would take a similar tack, but the writers developing the series, which will spin off from Arrow, are indicating Barry's show will be brighter and more superheroic than Ollie's.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Barry Allen will appear in three episodes of Arrow next season. He'll be in episodes 8 and 9, and then episode 20 will serve as a backdoor pilot for the new Flash series. All three will be written by the team of Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns.
The CW must be pleased as punch with Arrow creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with director David Nutter, because the network has asked the team to develop a new series based on The Flash.
On top of selling its slate of San Diego Comic-Con exclusives at the Graphitti Designs booth #2315 during the convention, DC Collectibles will also be debuting more than a dozen brand new upcoming action figure, statues and miniatures at booth #1915.
