Emboldened by their superhero success, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow order made a surprising addition to both Arrow and The Flash, and the mad scientists of the network may push their experiment even further. Could Hawkgirl soon soar into her own series as well, after the Legends of Tomorrow arrive in 2016?
Both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash set up quite a few Legends to live up to this fall, but even with Comic-Con 2015 ahead to give us a sense of the DC dramas’ future, hungry fans await an opportunity to catch up with Oliver Queen and the Scarlet Speedster’s most recent CW capers. Enter the full description and artwork of the September Blu-ray / DVD releases for both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash’s first run!
June 18 marks the birthday of Robert Kanigher, the man who wrote the book on how to make money writing comics. And I mean that literally.
Among his many accomplishments in a career that spanned four decades was the publication of How To Make Money Writing in 1943. At the time, Kanigher was already ten years into writing professionally, and in addition to sections on writing for radio shows, films and the stage, the book featured tips for aspiring creators who were looking to break into this brand-new medium called comics. Looking back, that book's a footnote, but I have to imagine that there were some good tips in there, considering that Kanigher would go on to co-create some of DC's greatest characters, including Poison Ivy, Sgt. Rock, and, in 1958, Barry Allen, the character who would launch the Silver Age of Comics as the Flash.
It’s no secret that Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman is the big stepping stone that will take audiences into the larger DC superhero movie universe. After all, that title promises a fight between the two most popular superhero movies of all time and a dawn of justice. This is going to be the movie that introduces the Justice League and cameo appearances by Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s Flash have been poorly kept secrets for months now. However, the details of how the two heroes figure into the plot have been revealed and it is probably not what you think.
On this day in 1927, Rossolav Andruskevitch was born in Cleveland, Ohio. He showed an aptitude for art from an early age, and after attending the High School Of Music & Art in New York City, serving a stint in the Army, enrolling at the Cartoonists And Illustrators School (now known as SVA), and shortening his professional name to Ross Andru, he launched himself into a career in comics that would span six decades, and establish him as one of the industry's finest craftsmen.
The Flash finished out its first season as one of the stronger debuts in recent memory, setting a high bar for whatever pointed Flash crises we can expect in Season 2. The speedy CW drama has quite a future ahead, one that may include a new love interest for Barry Allen, as well as a certain “classical,” “square-jawed hero.” Okay, not THAT one.
Marvel may be sitting out Comic-Con 2015 (at least on the movies side) but good grief if DC isn’t pumping everything they have into San Diego this year, big screen and small. Warner Bros. TV has set a whopping 18 shows to have a presence at Comic-Con, including another “Superhero Saturday Night” for the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and more.
It’s early yet for a sense of how The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow will shake out between Arrow and The Flash, but the newest crew of TV superheroes may be around longer than we’d thought. Series star Victor Garber has revealed the full episode order, as well as what to expect from future Flash appearances, Robbie Amell included.
