ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow’s Stephen Amell Has Socks With Pictures of Himself and Grant Gustin (Date: 21 Oct 2019)
    1. On Monday Amell, who has been hard at work filming the final episodes of Arrow as well as episodes of the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event, took to Twitter to share that he had finished up work early for the day and that he was “getting comfy” at home. The Tweet included a photo of his idea of “getting comfy” and, well, these may be the best socks ever. Check it out below. No, you do not need to adjust your computer settings or your mobile device’s brightness. Those are, in fact, socks featuring both Amell and Gustin looking kind of cozy with bright red hearts around them.
    2. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/10/21/arrow-stephen-amell-grant-gustin-socks-/
  2. Arrow Showrunner Announces Last Day of Writers Room (Date: 22 Oct 2019)
    1. On Tuesday, series showrunner Beth Schwartz took to Twitter to reveal that the show’s writers room is in its last official day. She accompanied the tweet with the rather-appropriate hashtag “#EndOfAnEra”. Seeing as certain key sets for the series are already being taken down, and Amell recently revealed that he only as one episode of the series left to film, the fact that the writers room is coming to a close both is and isn’t a surprise. Still, it’s yet another heartbreaking indication of the series’ impending end.

  1. Arrow: Amell Shares BTS Video of His Last Scene Ever with Gustin’s Flash (Date: 23 Oct 2019)
    1. As principal photography on the epic Arrowverse crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” comes to a close, Stephen Amell has shared a behind-the-scenes look at his last scene with longtime costar Grant Gustin.
    2. The actor is seen accidentally dozing off on the set in full costume before being awakened by Gustin’s arrival. Amell noted that he learned much from his costar over their many years working together, both as an actor and through his character.

  1. Crisis on Infinite Earths: Stephen Lobo Cast as Jim Corrigan, AKA The Spectre (Date: 16 Oct 2019)
    1. Another DC Comics icon will make their Arrowverse debut during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. IGN can exclusively reveal that Detective Jim Corrigan, human host of the powerful cosmic entity known as the Spectre, will appear in the crossover.
    2. The CW has cast Stephen Lobo (Continuum, Supernatural) as Jim Corrigan. The network isn’t confirming whether The Spectre himself will appear, though given the character’s role in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths comic, that seems a distinct possibility.
    3. In the comics, Corrigan is a mortal human bonded to the Spectre, a powerful supernatural avenger. That bond is intended to give the so-called “Spirit of Vengeance” a conscience and a better perspective on mortal affairs. The two are among many heroes who do battle with the Anti-Monitor during Crisis.

FEEDBACK

DISCORD:

RandyWalker

I totally forgot that Earth-2 Laurel went back to Earth-2. NGL I totally didn’t pay attention to the ending few episodes of season 7. The FTA sucked then and it’s still bad.

Adrian Chase’s hair was sexy

yakk0dotorg

very satisfying premiere of Arrow last night. I enjoyed it a lot.

StephenJondrew

Totally agree – right from start to finish.

I loved the ending seconds. It was so good. Also, the Diggle-car scene was a fantastic moment. I enjoyed how that whole Diggle debut played out.

From David:

First off I wanted to start off by saying I am going to miss your podcast. I look forward to your arrow recap every week. A couple of thoughts. Am I the only one who notices that the Queen mansion looked different. The foyer didnt look the same as it did in season 1 and 2. Also, do you guys have any speculation as to what happened to Robert Queen on Earth 2?  The last thing I remember was that he was the hood. I also know people hate the Flash Forwards but I actually think they are building to a place where Oliver will end up in the future recruiting Mia and her team, since the Monitor told Felicity in the finale of season 7 “Believe me, the world will need her as well”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow: How & When Stephen Amell Decided to Leave the Show (Date: 02 Oct 2019)
    1. The actor said he decided to depart during a break in filming for Season 6, and while he suggested he would leave the show following Season 7, but Greg Berlanti convinced him to try a different strategy for his exit.
    2. “I decided midway through Season 6 — basically over the Christmas break — that it was time to be done, and I broached that subject with [Arrowverse overlord] Greg [Berlanti],” he said. “He and and I talked for about a month before he formally notified [CW president] Mark [Pedowitz] and [WBTV president] Peter Roth, because he was like, ‘Think about this a lot, let’s talk about it, because once I kick it up the chain, once the ball starts rolling….’ So I thought about it then. I assumed that [the series] was going to end at the end of 7, but Greg’s smarter than me, and he had a really good idea about a limited run in Season 8.”

  2. Colton Haynes is returning to Arrow for the final season (Date: 3 Oct 2019)
    1. EW has exclusively learned that Colton Haynes is indeed returning to Arrow and will recur in the final season. The news arrives two months after the star’s demotion from series regular status sparked some fear that he might not appear in the CW superhero drama’s farewell song. Thankfully, those worries were all for naught.
    2. “We couldn’t have ended the show without having him back,” showrunner Beth Schwartz tells EW.

GERNEAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. ‘Supernatural’s Osric Chau Joins ‘Crisis’ Crossover — Is This the New Atom? (Date: 26 Sept 2019)
    1. TV Insider has learned exclusively that Osric Chau has been cast the recurring role of Ryan Choi for this winter’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. So does this explain why Brandon Routh, who currently plays Ray Palmer on Legends, is actually appearing as the “Kingdom Come” version of Superman in the Crisis event? Are they setting us up for a new Atom to replace Routh when he exits Legends this season (along with wife Courtney Ford, who plays Nora Dahrk)?
    2. https://www.tvinsider.com/817540/osric-chau-cast-crisis-of-infinite-earths-ryan-choi-atom/
  2. Batwoman’s Ruby Rose Discusses Stunt Injury: ‘I Broke My Neck’ (Date: 01 Oct 2019)
    1. Ruby Rose has stepped up her involvement in doing her own stunts for Batwoman and, in a new interview, she elaborated on how she discovered she had broken her neck while filming the upcoming Arrowverse series.
    2. While promoting the CW series on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Rose noted she had herniated two discs in her spine while filming the series pilot. Although she initially believed the pain and discomfort to be a broken rib, the sensation persisted for months while she was filming a movie in Romania where she similarly performed her own stunts. After receiving an MRI, Rose learned the true extent of her injury, with only a tiny portion of her spine not severed.
    3. Running the risk of becoming paraplegic should she strain and move her back in even the slightest sensitive position, Rose underwent surgery to repair her spine, taking time off to recuperate before jumping back into filming the rest of the series.
