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!
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.
The Flash proved a speedy breakout from its CW and Arrow origins, but will Season 2 keep the same pace? We’re on hand with the cast and crew from Comic-Con 2015, bringing out all the Flash Season 2 secrets from the Warner Bros. Superhero Saturday panel, including new villains, castings and more!
Just as yesterday saw Arrow Season 4 making a handsome addition to its cast, so too has The Flash sped out a major new figure in advance of its Comic-Con 2015 presentation. Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears will play the classic Flash role of Jay Garrick, the appearance of which could well create a major Crisis for Barry Allen in Season 2.
As we prepare for the Arrow Season 4 panel at Comic-Con 2015, we’ve already been treated to a delightful surprise: Oliver has a brand new costume for the upcoming fourth season, giving our Starling City hero a fierce and highly-tactical new look as he prepares to re-enter the vigilante fray.
