I haven't really watched any of DC's current television offerings, but to be honest, I'm actually pretty impressed with what I've heard. It seems like they're really going for it in a way that Smallville only ever did in its final season, going right to these big, weird superhero stories right out of the gate. I mean, if you'd asked me a year ago, I would've told you that there was no way we were ever going to see a telepathic talking super-gorilla show up on the CW's version of The Flash, and yet, here we are, living in a world where Gorilla Grodd is starring on a live-action TV show.
With that in mind, I'm guessing that we're only one, maybe two seasons away from TV's Green Arrow meeting up with Xeen Arrow, the hundred foot-tall alien Green Arrow from another dimension, a character who may in fact be Jack Kirby's strangest co-creation.
Arrow met with a bit of resistance in yesterday’s casting of DC’s Baron Blitzkrieg, but for anyone opposed to Season 4’s latest addition, resistance is futile (Yes, I’m paid to do this). Star Trek: Voyager alum and fan-favorite Jeri Ryan will trade Borg implants for arrows in a new Season 4 role, one which might earn a target on her back.
Arrow isn’t usually one to court controversy, though eyebrows understandably raised with yesterday’s Season 4 casting of DC supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg, not only for the character’s notable Nazi affiliation, but in casting actor Jimmy Akingbola for the role. Now, Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim explains how the Nazi elements will be dropped, also teasing Oliver’s new flashback journey.
Arrow Season 4 hasn’t exactly been shy with its casting details, though the fourth year flashbacks have been somewhat shrouded in mystery. Now, British actor Jimmy Akingbola has joined in the flashback role of DC villain Baron Blitzkrieg, but what might it mean for Oliver’s latest expositionary chapter?
The moment DC’s Legends of Tomorrow entered development, Arrow fans scratched their heads at the inclusion of Caity Lotz’s (then-deceased) Sara Lance, before it became official that a Lazarus Pit would give birth to the “White Canary.” Now, we’ve learned that Arrow Season 4 will deal directly with Sara’s return first, building to a crossover event that leads into Legends of Tomorrow.
For as much as Comic-Con 2015 and beyond revealed of Arrow Season 4, we don’t yet have the clearest picture what Oliver will be doing in flashback this year, other than the vague suggestion that the younger Mr. Queen will head to Green Lantern’s hometown of Coast City. The series has alluded to Green Lantern on a number of occasions, but is a Season 4 appearance really in the cards?
It’s been a week for DC castings, between Flash-y new additions and new Gotham love interests, and only hours after Arrow Season 4 added itself a Terrific new hero, so too will a new villain make anarchy reign. Bates Motel star Alexander Calvert will face off against the Green Arrow in Season 4, debuting in Star City as DC villain “Anarky.”
The Flash has stolen the spotlight of late with its DC castings, but Arrow Season 4 has finally caught up with a Terrific new addition. Sean Saves the World alum Echo Kellum will join Team Arrow when Oliver Queen returns to Starling City, suiting up as DC superhero Mr. Terrific.
Particularly after another Comic-Con, the sting of Constantine’s cancellation still smarts, not only for lack of a second season, but also the dream of a DC crossover. That said, Arrow is reportedly still trying to conjure John Constantine an appearance in Season 4, and may yet return the Hellblazer to life after all.
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.
