We’ve known for some time the likelihood that Arrow would end its flashback cycle altogether with Season 5, but however much flack the format gets, they’re going out with bang. Ivan Drago himself, Dolph Lundgren must break the Arrow, guesting as a major new big bad for the season.
Come on, sooner or later, someone had to use those pipes. With the addition of Supergirl to the Arrow-verse, musical fans practically had bingo of amazing singers sharing the screen, and The CW will finally reward us for it.

It’d take a pretty big crisis to gather the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl (from another universe), leaving The CW to assemble a pretty major threat.

The moment “Luthor Corp” signs started popping up around the Supergirl Season 2 set, it looks like at least someone tied to Superman’s nemesis was inbound. And so it is, that Katie McGrath has landed the role of Lex Luthor’s sister Lena, but what surprising twist does Lena’s emergence mean for Lex?
Slowly, but surely, Legends of Tomorrow is starting to assemble its Justice Society of America. After a snazzy new logo and a few early ties, Season 2 has added iZombie star Matthew MacCaull in a Steel-y new role for the series, one with familial ties to one of our new series regulars.
