If ever you thought the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow over the top, just wait until Season 2. Not only will the team face off against a “Legion of Doom” comprised of returning villains like Malcolm Merlyn and the Reverse Flash, so too have new Justice Society of America heroes come aboard, and even a certain Mayor Queen!
Stephen Amell has promised that Arrow Season 5 will return to the series’ grounded roots, fitting given the end of Oliver’s five-year flashback cycle, and it seems the Green Arrow may appropriately deal with a major fallout of his Hood-ed past. Season 5's big bad has been revealed to result from the series’ early tendency for murder, something that now comes back to haunt Oliver.
Vixen fans were saddened to learn that the onetime-animated Arrow and Flash character couldn’t join Legends of Tomorrow outright, but the DC heroes will come to her when Season 2 debuts this summer on CW Seed. Not only will Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin again lend their voices, so too will several Legends and a surprise guest.
San Diego Comic Con is without a doubt the biggest event on the industry’s calendar, and people will be flying from around the world to attend panels, watch trailers, meet creators, and make friends. This year’s event is bigger than ever, with so much going on every single day that it can be difficult to sift through all that information and decide how to spend your time.
Yesterday we gave a rundown on what to expect on Thursday and Friday, but things heat up as the weekend kicks in and the major studios make their presence known. Expect big reveals from Marvel Studios, DC's TV offerings and more, plus great panels featuring your favorite creators in comics.
Even if Arrow Seasons 3 and 4 had a hard time living up to its first years, Season 5 will at least reach a milestone for the DC drama, to complete the cycle of flashbacks and presumably break new ground. That said, Season 5 has plenty of work ahead in past and present, as a shirtless Stephen Amell gets closer to that island look in a new photo.
The same day that saw The CW expanding its superhero ranks also brought them closer together by the upgrade of Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold to a “franchise regular” across all series. Now, Arrow baddie John Barrowman will follow suit, as Malcolm Merlyn becomes the latest DC vet to expand his horizons.
Kevin Smith has made more than a few headlines for himself directing just one episode of The Flash, even if his success won’t carry over to Arrow just yet. Now, we know exactly which Flash Season 3 hour will see the Mallrats director return, as well how Arrow might adapt his enigmatic “Onomatopoeia” villain, should he get the chance to realize it.
Well, The CW deal with Hulu that enabled next-day streaming of the most recent five episodes may have lapsed, but Netflix subscribers are officially in for some good news. The CW has confirmed a new streaming deal that will bring full seasons of CW shows a mere eight days after their finales air on the network.
A few weeks back, Flash star Grant Gustin confirmed a pointed new title for the fall 2016 premiere, though Arrow archer Stephen Amell played things a bit closer to the chest for Season 5. Or so we thought, anyway, as the official October 5 premiere title has been revealed.
