Arrow crafted enough upheaval by its Season 3 finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” to leave Season 4 something of a blank slate, but it seems the League of Assassins will remain in play. Not only has John Barrowman confirmed that Malcolm Merlyn will return this fall, but so too will the “Canary sisters” have a part to play in setting up certain Legends.

Arrow’s third season finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” left quite a few fans scratching their heads as to how Oliver Queen might return to the vigilante lifestyle of his DC namesake, but fans needn’t wait until Comic-Con 2015 for a glimpse into Season 4. Stephen Amell has offered a few cryptic teases of the fall premiere, including some trouble for Thea Queen, as well as a minor time jump.
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!
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.
Arrow Season 4 has a bit of work ahead in recovering from a mixed year, but is creatively off to a promising start. Punisher: War Zone and fan-favorite director Lexi Alexander has been tapped to helm an Arrow Season 4 episode shooting this summer, so might Starling City come under all-out war? Er … again?
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.
Over three seasons Arrow has been no stranger to the Suicide Squad (though perhaps less now with a movie in the works), but few could forget the excitement of the CW drama first teasing Harley Quinn with a brief cameo. That said, it seems Arrow may have had larger plans for Dr. Harleen Quinzel, ones that DC smashed with a giant sledgehammer.
The Flash has officially crossed the finish line of his first season with last night’s “Fast Enough,” but Barry Allen’s race is far from over. Following last night’s time-splitting crisis, producers have opened up on the (several!) shocking deaths, where and when Season 2 might pick up, and what DC surprises lie in store.
Regardless of network, any and all DC TV series spur talk of crossover potential from fans. The Flash arrived with its Arrow connection built in, but despite Supergirl’s CBS proximity to The CW, executive producer Greg Berlanti confirms that the universes will remain separate (for now, anyway).
The Flash had enough timey-wimey troubles before The CW confirmed Barry’s Legends of Tomorrow involvement, but the whole DC TV universe may be in a “Flashpoint” crisis after next week’s finale. Find out if Barry is “Fast Enough” in a new trailer and photos, and see if a major Legends of Tomorrow easter egg holds a clue!
