Stephen Amell Downplays ‘Flash’ Twist Affecting ‘Arrow’ Season 5

Arrow Season 5 Flash Flashpoint Stephen Amell
The CW

The fourth season finale of Arrow ended on a fairly low-key “Schism,” disappointing a throng of fans who tuned into see if a time-turning Flash twist one-night earlier would ripple out across The CW’s DC dramas. The Arrow finale went by with nary a mention of Central City, but star Stephen Amell thinks the emerald archer will be back to basics in Season 5, rather than dealing with time-travel twists from another series.

Mr. DC Comics: How Carmine Infantino Saved Superheroes

infantino-feat

It's not an exaggeration to say that Carmine Infantino is one of the most significant and influential figures in the history of comics. On the surface, it's easy to point out his role in the creation of Barry Allen, Wally West, Barbara Gordon, Black Canary, Deadman, Elongated Man, the Human Target, Detective Chimp, and many more as a sign of his influence. But on a macro scale, his streamlined, mid-century modern style determined the aesthetic of what would prove to be the renaissance of the superhero genre in the Silver Age, and his bold editorial direction would usher in comics' next great era, the Bronze Age. Indeed, without Carmine Infantino, comics as we know them would not exist.

Funko’s Latest Legion of Collectors Box Brings All Your CW Heroes Together

Funko DC Legion of Collectors

Funko's second Legion of Collectors subscription box brings all your favorite characters from DC's television universes together mostly in time for their season finales. Though Supergirl ended in April, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are all nearing wrap dates on their respective seasons. Thus far, Funko's DC efforts have all been tied to the cinema or television worlds, and that trend will continue into the next box, which is themed around Suicide Squad. You would think eventually Funko will get around to linking these boxes to the comic universe (as they have with Marvel a few times), but perhaps it's for the best to focus on the one consistent constant in DC's stable right now and hit up the Rebirth Universe later.

For now, all we actually have is the DC TV box, and it's pretty good.

The Flash Season 3 Zack Stentz Producer
The CW

The Flash Season 2 has filled something of a mixed bag from episode to episode, though few would argue Kevin Smith’s Zack Stentz-written “Runaway Dinosaur” as one of the major highlights. Now, it seems reports of writing a Booster Gold movie haven’t taken Stentz too far out of DC’s TV orbit, as the writer joins Flash Season 3 in a consulting role.
