Sporting a brand-new comic-friendly suit in Arrow Season 4, as well finally assuming the moniker of Green Arrow, Stephen Amell will take the CW character ever-closer to his DC roots by the fall return. That said, Amell hilariously refuted a suggestion that we’ll ever see The CW’s Oliver Queen sporting the comic character’s famous facial hair.
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.
Arrow Season 4 stole a bit of spotlight from Comic-Con 2015 in introducing Oliver’s flashy new threads, but The Flash Season 2 better lives up to that description with an upgrade of his own. Barry Allen is rocking some classic white lightning for his Season 2 costume, but what might it mean for the speedy CW series?
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.
Vancouver production of The Flash Season 2 earlier afforded our first look at Barry Allen back in action battling a new villain, though the "Flash Day" setting and masked foe raised a number of questions. At least one of those questions now has an answer (albeit with a dozen more questions), as former WWE superstar Adam "Edge" Copeland will play masked DC figure Atom-Smasher.
The Flash has always followed its predecessor in casting with a nod to DC history, and Season 2 will see the mother of all DC baddies becoming the father of another. Darkseid himself, Michael Ironside will menace The Flash Season 2, not Barry Allen necessarily, but instead his own son, Captain Cold.
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.
The Flash sped out miles’ worth of Season 2 intel this past weekend at Comic-Con 2015, but fans of the CW speedster have leagues of unanswered questions from Season 1 finale “Fast Enough.” New set photos from The Flash Season 2 may not necessarily answer those questions, but certainly raise a host of new ones!
