Chris Ferrell is a long time fan of a variety of so called nerdy things. Growing up he was introduced to Star War, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 by his father. That grew into a love of just about all Sci Fi and fantasy. Add in his fanboy nature when it comes to comics and Chris probably has too many things he's interested in.

Nowadays Chris espouses his love for all things good and nerdy in both podcast and blogging forms. Chris is a staff writer at Gonna Geek. In addition to that he is the co-host of a bunch of podcasts. Basically, if you want to hear someone ramble about nerdy things, Chris can do it.

Podcasts: All Things Good and Nerdy, GonnaGeek.com Podcast, The Starling Tribune and WTWD Radio Free Woodbury.

SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Weekend Box Office: ‘The Mummy’ Entombed With $32M U.S. Debut (Date: 10 June 2017)
    The Tom Cruise-led ‘Mummy’ reboot fared far better overseas, opening to nearly $142 million internationally; ‘Wonder Woman’ easily stays No. 1 in North America after falling a scant 45 percent in its second weekend. In the U.S., The Mummy was relegated to second place behind Warner Bros.’ box-office sensation Wonder Woman, which fell a scant 45 percent in its second weekend to $57.2 million from 4,165 theaters. That’s one of the lowest drops ever for a superhero tentpole. Generally speaking, a superhero film can fall 60 percent.

  2. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Orphan Black, Once Upon a Time, Hawaii Five-0 and more (Date: 09 June 2017)
    Will Amaya be in Legends of Tomorrow season 3? — Fear not, despite not being explicitly mentioned in the logline for season 3, Maisie Richardson-Sellers will be back as a series regular next season.
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/06/09/spoiler-room-orphan-black-once-upon-time-hawaii-five-0/   
  3. Legends of Tomorrow Casts Billy Zane As PT Barnum (Date: 14 June 2017)
    EW can exclusively reveal that Billy Zane has been tapped to play P.T. Barnum on the CW super series. The Titanic star will appear in one episode. Executive producer Phil Klemperer has offered up a detailed description of the role that also offers insight on what’s in store for season 3: “Obviously, we couldn’t resist putting Victor Garber and Billy Zane back on screen for the first time since the TITANIC. But I’ve wanted to bring Billy onto LEGENDS every since I saw him in a friend’s comedy pilot. I’m not sure that people know how funny Billy is, although we cast him as P.T. Barnum because we knew that he would be able to find the soul beneath the larger-than-life showman. This season on LEGENDS, we want to meet other famous figures from history, people like Barnum, people we think we know, so that we can find the aspects of them, the parts of their story, that the history books left out — we want to bring history to life by infusing it with heart, humor, and total absurdity (often at the same time).”

  4. Legends of Tomorrow adds Tala Ashe as a visitor from the future (Date: 06 June 2017)
    The Waverider is adding one more member to its superhero squad: American Odyssey and Smash actress Tala Ashe is joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3 in a new series regular role. Ashe will portray Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030. In her future, technological advances have brought about significant change to civilization, but humanity’s fear, prejudice, and mistreatment of the planet have prompted her to become a “grey hat hacktivist.” Tomaz may be a computer nerd, but she doesn’t yet realize she holds hidden powers derived from a mystical source.

  2. The Flash: Kevin Smith compares the digital effects to Arrow’s (Date: 31 May 2017)
    Kevin Smith sits down with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg to discuss how Arrow differs from the other shows in the Berlantiverse, specifically when it comes to the visual effects budget. “The visual effects budget of Arrow is literally a tenth [of Supergirl and The Flash],” explains Kreisberg, adding that the arrows are created digitally. “It’s a lot of stunt-work. It’s all practical by design.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Supergirl Casts Odette Annable as Reign, Season 3’s Big Bad (Date: 31 May 2017)
    Cloverfield and Pure Genius alum Odette Annable has joined the third-season cast of The CW’s Supergirl in the role of Reign. Warner Bros. Television confirms that “Reign will be the big bad of Season 3, as part of an exciting interpretation of the infamous World Killer storyline from the pages of the DC Comics.” Introduced in 2012, Reign is a Worldkiller and her origin is a mystery even to her. All she knows about herself is her name, that she is a Worldkiller, and that Krypton and Earth hold the answers for her questions about her origin.

  2. The Flash Scoop: Season 4 Villain Is Exactly Who You Think It Is — Cast Him! (Date: 01 June 2017)
    The following will come as little surprise to The Flash fans who were paying attention during the last six episodes of Season 3: Barry Allen’s next adversary — once he finds his way out of the Speed Force prison, that is! — will be Clifford DeVoe aka The Thinker, sources tell TVLine.

  3. Legends of Tomorrow Recruits Classic DC Heroine (Date: 06 June 2017)
    The CW has announced that Tala Ashe (American Odyssey) will join the cast as Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a character better known to DC Comics fans — not to mention viewers of 1970s Saturday-morning television — as the superheroine Isis. Ashe’s character is described by the network as a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030 who lives in a world of contradictions: “Technology has brought about incredible change in her future — too bad human nature hasn’t kept pace. Fear, prejudice and a lack of care for the planet have forced Zari to become a “’grey hat hacktivist.’ A computer nerd with a wry, combative attitude. A woman living a double life who doesn’t realize that she has secret, latent powers derived from an ancient, mystical source.”

  2. The Complex Gender Politics of the ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie (Date: 31 May 2017)
    Can Patty Jenkins make the superhero world safe for female directors? Warner Bros. gambles $150 million on its first woman-centered comic book movie with a filmmaker whose only prior big-screen credit was an $8 million indie: “I can’t take on the history of 50 percent of the population just because I’m a woman.” Also mentioned: And if it all goes according to plan, Jenkins is more than ready to return to the character for a contemporary-set Wonder Woman sequel (she and Gadot are contractually committed to a second film).

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. The Arrow Easter Egg That Sealed One Character’s Fate (Date: 24 May 2017)
    Before Oliver (Stephen Amell) had his final showdown with Konstantin Kovar (Dolph Lundgren) in the flashbacks on tonight’s episode of Arrow, the show gave a look ahead at the Bratva boss’s destiny. Earlier in the episode, as Oliver, Slade, and Talia were exploring Lian Yu, the camera panned across the forest floor to reveal a set of skeletal remains wearing a black leather jacket. The body was that of Konstantin Kovar, who wouldn’t die at Oliver’s hand for about another 20 minutes in the episode.

  2. Arrow’s John Barrowman Licks Katrina Law’s Donut (Date: 24 May 2017)
    Katrina Law, who returned to her role as Nyssa al Ghul in tonight’s episode, shared a video taken while on set. In it, Law talks to Nick E. Tarabay (Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang) about her love of donuts, seemingly unaware that John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) is behind her. Barrowman taps Law on the shoulder, sneaks up behind her, and licks her donut. And in traditional Arrow fashion, the video is accompanied by dramatic music and camera movements.

  3. Arrow: John Barrowman Confirms He’s Done With The Arrowverse (Date: 25 May 2017)
    Here’s what Barrowman had to say about his exit: “I am very sad to be leaving the Arrowverse. I love playing Malcolm Merlyn, and you know – that’s it really. As sad as it may be, I understand how shows must change and also characters must change and develop. But that doesn’t mean I’m not very sad and upset about it. I appreciate your support and love you all,” the actor told fans.

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. The CW Boss On Plans For New 4-Series DC Crossover & Peak Superhero TV (Date: 18 May 2017)
    The now-traditional DC superhero crossover on the CW will be back next season with another big four-series event in the fourth quarter, more specifically November. Like the very successful four-night crossover last December, which delivered the CW’s most watched week in six years, the stunt will include the DC series on the fall schedule, Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

  2. Supergirl Season 2 Blu-ray, DVD Information Released (Date: 24 May 2017)
    The CW and Warner Bros home entertainment have announced that Supergirl: The Complete Second Season will release on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 22, 2017. The set contains all 22 episodes of Supergirl’s second season, an exclusive commentary with Andrew Kreisberg and Kevin Smith, the show’s 2016 Comic-Con panel, featurettes, and more extras.
    Link:http://comicbook.com/2017/05/24/supergirl-season-2-blu-ray/  
  3. Supergirl: Cat Grant Won’t Be Series Regular in Season 3 (Date: 25 May 2017)
    While Flockhart was listed as a series regular by The CW in press release for Season Three, the actress won’t be a full-time cast member. Instead, she’s expected to appear as a guest star in a handful of episodes, “if the scheduling can be worked out.” Given the revelation that Cat has known Kara’s biggest secret for some time, fans will undoubtedly hope schedules do work out, as Kara could surely use some sage advice from her mentor as she faces more challenges.

  1. Watch Arrow’s Stephen Amell Target the American Ninja Warrior Course (Date: 17 May 2017)
    Stephen Amell has the Floating Steps in his sights in this exclusive sneak peek from the Arrow star’s run on the American Ninja Warrior course.The first-ever celebrity edition of American Ninja Warrior — airing Thursday, May 25 at 8/7c — kicks off NBC’s third annual night of Red Nose Day programming, which raises money and awareness to help children living in poverty in America and around the world.

  2. Arrow: What is Lord Mesa Bakery? (Date: 17 May 2017)
    The cake ordered by Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) for the birthday party was decorated with art by Lord Mesa, an artist who regularly publishes DCTV-related fanart on Twitter. Lord Mesa gained popularity in Arrow’s early seasons for drawing chibi fanart inspired by noteworthy scenes, many of which were regularly reshared by the show’s cast and crew. In the years since, his work has grown to Arrow’s sister shows: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. While this Easter egg has little bearing on the show as a whole, it’s a nice way to honor someone who has contributed a lot to the Arrow fandom.

  3. Arrow, Riverdale Switch Nights on CW’s Fall Lineup (Date: 18 May 2017)
    The lineup, unveiled this morning ahead of the network’s upfront presentation in New York City, sees Riverdale slide from Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT into Arrow‘s time slot on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT, serving as lead-in to the reimagining of the 1980s primetime soap opera Dynasty. The sixth season of Arrow will unfold Thursdays at 8 p.m., followed at 9 p.m. by the 13th season of Supernatural. The new DC Comics-inspired superhero drama Black Lightning will join returning series iZombie, The 100 and The Originals as part of The CW’s midseason lineup.

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. THE FLASH Star Comes Out As Bisexual In Inspiring And Touching Instagram Post (Date: 15 May 2017)
    Since his introduction as Wally West in season two of The Flash, Keiynan Lonsdale has made a pretty huge impact in The CW series, especially now that he’s suited up as Kid-Flash. Now, while you may initially ask yourself “Why does this matter?” it’s important to note that there are a lot of people all over the world who struggle to come to terms with things like this and look to their favourite LGBT actors and celebs for inspiration when it comes to talking to their friends and families.

  2. Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Home Video Details Revealed (Date: 16 May 2017)
    While you buy the season digitally now on a variety of platforms, the home entertainment release will come with bonus features not currently available on iTunes, Vudu, etc., and the Blu-ray edition will come with an Ultraviolet copy as well. The disc releases will come on August 15, 2017. Per the official release, “Fans can zoom through 17 exhilarating episodes from the second season, plus exciting special features including the show’s 2016 Comic-Con Panel, crossover featurette, gag-reel and deleted scenes.”
    Link:http://comicbook.com/2017/05/16/legends-of-tomorrow-season-2-home-video-details-revealed/  
  3. The CW’s Black Lightning not part of Arrowverse, crossover unlikely (Date: 18 May 2017)
    CW chief Mark Pedowitz revealed to reporters on Thursday morning ahead of the network’s upfront presentation that Black Lightning does not take place in the Arrowverse — the same shared universe that the other four series call home. Couple that with the fact that Black Lightning films in Atlanta, while the rest of the shows film in Vancouver, and it’s basically a logistical nightmare. Black Lightning is also slated to debut in midseason, not in the fall. “We do not aim to do a five-way crossover,” Pedowitz said. “Black Lightning, at this time, is not part of the Arrowverse. It is a separate situation. But there will be a big fourth quarter crossover with all four of the shows that are on in the fall.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. The CW Reveals Season Finale Synopses for Flash, Arrow & Supergirl (Date: 04 May 2017)
    “Arrow” Season 5 finale: The battle between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) culminates in a final epic battle on Lian Yu. After recent events, Oliver decides to recruit a group of unlikely allies – Slade (guest star Manu Bennett), Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law), Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Digger Harkness (guest star Nick. E. Tarabay) – to defeat Chase. However, Chase has his own army – Black Siren (guest star Katie Cassidy), Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin) and Talia al Ghul (guest star Lexa Doig) – and the forces collide in an explosive season finale.                                                               “Supergirl” Season 2 finale: Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) challenges Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) to battle to save National City. Meanwhile, Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) returns and Cat Grant (guest star Calista Flockhart) offers Supergirl some sage advice.      “The Flash” Season 3 finale: With nothing left to lose, Barry (Grant Gustin) takes on Savitar (also Grant Gustin) in an epic conclusion to season three.

  2. Arrow EP Explains Why Prometheus Keeps Getting So Personal (Date: 10 May 2017)
    During an interview last week, Arrow showrunner Wendy Mericle explained why they felt it was time for a villain who challenged Oliver on a personal, human level for the first time since Deathstroke in season 2. “It’s very personal this year, and we wanted to do that for a number of reasons,” Mericle said. “WE’ve done a different villain this year. It’s not that it’s easy, but using violence — which Chase and Oliver still do throughout the season — is sort of the go-to. What’s been interesting to see this year is to see that but the underpinnings of it being so psychological and so manipulative and so built on the underpinnings of what Chase knows about Oliver and who he is. This was the perfect storm — a great way to change up the villain and to get inside of Oliver’s head in a season that we needed to. We needed him to be reflective and talking and looking back at his past, and Chase was the perfect spark to light that fire.”

  3. Arrow Season 6 To Explore the Conflicts Between Being Mayor and Being Green Arrow (Date: 10 May 2017)
    During a recent interview, showrunner Wendy Mericle told ComicBook.com that the man in the hood will still be spending his days at City Hall come 2016. Mericle said, “What’s going to be a central question for season 6 is how can he do both? We’ve played with that in the past in different ways before, but I think that the success of what he’s done in the mayor’s office and his ability to have impact is going to raise those stakes to a different level and hopefully create some great stories.”

  4. Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Arrow, Once, Chicago Fire, Elementary, Blindspot, The Flash, NCIS and More! (Date: 09 May 2017)
    Black Siren is a badass villain. What can we expect? —You can expect… badass villainy. “She comes back as part of Chase’s plan,” says co-showrunner Wendy Mericle. ” Chase knows exactly what he’s doing, and he understands how unsettling seeing somebody that looks like Laurel Lance is going to be for the rest of the team,” her “dad” Quentin included. “And from a writing perspective, it’s just fun storytelling. Katie Cassidy does an amazing job as Black Siren, and seeing her take on Dinah, or her take on Lance, is going to be fun.”                                   This will be the first Arrow season finale that does not take place in Starling City. Can we expect the same kind of intense fights, or will this be more of an emotional showdown? —“Both,” answers Wendy Mericle. “One of the fun parts of having Prometheus and Oliver going toe-to-toe this season has been they’re both really great fighters, but by the same token, Prometheus is a tremendous psychological villain and he’s going to hit Oliver right where it hurts. That’s going to be a double whammy for him in the finale.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Supergirl EP Teases General Zod’s Arrival, Comic-Inspired Appearance (Date: 06 May 2017)
    The “how” and “when” of General Zod’s arrival on Supergirl remains a mystery, but thanks to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, at least we know what the legendary DC Comics villain will be wearing. He says that Supergirl‘s Zod (played by Smallville actor Mark Gibbon) will be sporting “a little bit of that Nazi uniform look you’d see in the comics in the ’60s. Visually, he has a different look from the mechanical armor that Man of Steel did, or the real spacey clothes Richard Donner’s version had.

  2. The Flash boss on how everyone will react to that Savitar reveal (Date: 08 May 2017)
    As revealed during last week’s episode of The Flash, Savitar is actually a future version of the Scarlet Speedster, a heavily scarred Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) hellbent on killing Iris (Candice Patton) for as-yet-unknown reasons. Suffice it to say, Team Flash will certainly be shocked by this turn of events during Tuesday’s episode. “What’s interesting about people’s reactions — we certainly wrote it, but just the way the cast performs it — is it’s one thing to have seen that giant metal suit and hear that there is a version of Barry inside of it,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “It’s quite another thing when you actually come face-to-face with what’s inside.” Plus, watch a trailer for the final episodes of season 3.

  3. Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Arrow, Once, Chicago Fire, Elementary, Blindspot, The Flash, NCIS and More! (Date: 09 May 2017)
    Will we ever see Supergirl‘s Mon-El in a super suit? — T’would be nice to see the boy do his thing not in street clothes, and ideally by the Season 2 finale. When we delivered your Q to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg, he answered, “I can’t say right now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one day you got to see that.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow: Stephen Amell Teases Prometheus’ Savage End Game (Date: 30 April 2017)
    Arrow star Stephen Amell spoke to ComicBook.com reader Michael Leslie at Planet Comicon Kansas City where he revealed that Chase’s violent tendencies are only going to get worse for Team Arrow as it barrels toward its fifth season finale, while praising the performance of actor Josh Segarra. Amell talked about how Prometheus has been a great villain for Green Arrow and his allies, calling Segarra “almost scary good.” When Leslie noted just how savage Chase has been revealed to be, Amell only offered this tease for the remaining episodes:“Just you wait.”

  2. Stephen: Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supernatural, Handmaid’s Tale, OUAT, and more (Date: 28 April 2017)
    Anything on the Arrow finale? — We know Oliver’s going to be heading back to the island — after all, that’s where Slade has been imprisoned, but he definitely won’t be alone. “One of the things that will surprise us is why he goes and the amount of people who will be there,” Stephen Amell says. “This whole year has been built around Oliver returning on a team, but what happens when Oliver’s team isn’t there for him and he still needs a team?”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. The Flash: Get the scoop on Killer Frost showdown (Date: 01 May 2017)
    With Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) on death’s door, Team Flash was recently forced to unleash her villainous alter ego, Killer Frost, thus turning their former ally into an icy foe, hell-bent on making them all pay. “Obviously her meta powers have severely messed with her mind, so it’s not like Barry Allen, who is still Barry Allen even though he got super speed,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explains. “Her brain chemistry has been severely altered.” However, there may also be no quick fix to wait ails Caitlin, meaning this storyline could draw into next season. “For me personally as an actor, it’s been fun to play Killer Frost and I hope that it lasts a little while and we don’t necessarily tie it up in a bow right away,” Panabaker says. “I’m enjoying getting to play her.” “Obviously Danielle Panabaker is not going anywhere,” Kreisberg adds. “How and if she becomes Caitlin Snow again, or she remains Killer Frost or a version of Killer Frost, into season 4, you’re going to have to tune in.”

  2. SUPERGIRL EP TALKS THE RETURN OF SUPERMAN… AND THE COMING OF ZOD (Date: 01 May 2017)
    “Supergirl” EP Andrew Kreisberg recently spoke with CBR about Rhea’s endgame, Supergirl’s moral dilemma, the return of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman to the show, and the arrival of Mark Gibbons as General Zod. “We have amazing guest stars in the finale. We are bringing back people we’ve had all season. We have Calista Flockhart coming back. In the last two episodes, we have Lynda Carter returning as the President, Sharon Leal is coming back as M’gann. Obviously, there’s Tyler as Superman. These are some of the biggest episodes we’ve ever done. We’re so proud of Teri Hatcher, and so amazed she’s on our show and killing it as Rhea. There is a feature film quality finale, with huge guest stars, stunts and visual effects. We will get a glimpse of the Season 3 villain in the finale, which we’re also excited about.”

  3. The Flash: Savitar’s identity revealed! (Date: 02 May 2017)
    Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW, “What’s really cool for anyone who thought that there wasn’t a plan, or we didn’t know, or we were making this up as we go, this was always where we were heading,” Kreisberg says. “The idea that the darkest villain we could come up with was actually a very damaged version of our hero was interesting and fresh to us. We’re not only competing with all the stuff that we’ve done on Flash, but we’re always competing with everything we’ve done on all the other shows. So to have our lead actor be both the hero and the villain isn’t something we’ve done before, so that was exciting for us as storytellers.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. May Sweeps/Finale Preview: Get 130+ Spoilers, Plus Exclusive Photos! (Date: 24 April 2017)
    PRE-FINALE: While Team Arrow, A.R.G.U.S. and the SCPD launch a manhunt for Adrian Chase, Helix offers Felicity a solution to that problem — in trade for something big and illegal. On the heels of that, things get intense when Oliver and Felicity are trapped in the bunker together, while Lyla and Diggle deal with marital issues. Oliver also will deal with the forced release of violent criminals prosecuted by Chase as well as the delivery of a mysterious corpse encased in concrete.
    SEASON FINALE (MAY 24): Chase keeps 10 steps ahead of Team Arrow, forcing Oliver to face his violent past and answer the question once and for all: Is he a killer, or a hero? To answer that, Oliver will be forced to let go of the fate his father burdened him with and aim for a new legacy. And as Oliver’s five years’ worth of flashbacks come to an end,  you will see how he planned his escape from Lian Yu — while in the present, Oliver bids said island a final farewell.

  2. 9 Spoilers From Your Favorite Shows’ Season Finales (Date: 24 April 2017)
    The ultimate showdown between the Emerald Archer and Prometheus will speak to Oliver’s legacy in the Arrow finale, welcoming back a number of familiar faces, including Black Siren (Katie Cassidy), Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), while taking viewers back to where it all started on the island both in flashback and present day. “Chase has been trying to prove to the world and to Oliver that he’s not a hero, he’s a killer, and he’s going to pull out one final, big whamo at the end that’s going to leave Oliver reeling,” EP Wendy Mericle says of the action-packed hour, which she promises will be very explosive. “We might lose some people.”

  3. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Scandal, Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D., and more (Date: xx month year)
    Anything Arrow? — The finale is going to bring the show full circle to what we saw in the pilot — and more! Here’s what EP Wendy Mericle tells me: “We’ve managed to hopefully stick the landing on it in a cool way that allows us to see both some of the moments right before we first met Oliver in the pilot, where he launched that flaming arrow and it lit up that signal fire, and also maybe a little bit after as well, some of the more emotional moments that we never got to see in the pilot.”
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/04/21/spoiler-room-scandal-arrow-agents-shield/  
  4. Is Arrow Planning A The Walking Dead-Style Season Finale Cliffhanger? It Sounds Like It (Date: 24 April 2017)
    During an interview with ComicBook.com earlier today, Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle referred to the upcoming season finale as a cliffhanger, and indicated that fans might not know who lives and who dies until season six. “We’re going to have a big bang of an ending, and we’re not going to know really the outcome until the end of season 6,” Mericle told ComicBook.com. “We don’t often do cliffhangers in the way that we’re doing this season, and we’re excited about this ending.” Mericle said of the flashbacks that have served as a kind of backup story in the show’s first five seasons, “Moving forward into season 6, we’re not calling it a reboot, because really the show is called Arrow and it’s still about Oliver and his team, and that’s not changing, but we don’t have the flashbacks. What that’s going to allow us to do is keep that device when we want it, but we don’t have to keep pushing the five year storyline down the road. It gives us a lot more real estate to play around with, a lot more space to hopefully bring in some cool villains and to tell new character stories, and we have a lot of new characters on the show whose backstories we haven’t really had the chance to experience.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. May Sweeps Preview and Finale Spoilers (Date: 24 April 2017)
    THE FLASH – PRE-FINALE:- Barry travels to 2024 to find out Savitar’s identity, where he encounters future versions of himself as well as his Team Flash friends. Upon returning to the present, Barry & Co. meet a scientist (House‘s Anne Dudek) who may be the key to stopping Savitar, but they must — literally, and with great difficulty — fight to keep Killer Frost from getting to her first. Afterward, Caitlin’s icy alter ego makes an interesting proposal.
    SEASON FINALE (MAY 23): After discovering Savitar’s true identity, Team Flash prepares for a final, epic battle with the God of Speed… while struggling with a major setback. Expect a season-ending cliffhanger that will leave viewers — and the heroes — questioning how they will move forward in Season 4.

  2. May Sweeps Preview and Finale Spoilers (Date: 24 April 2017)
    PRE-FINALE: The final episodes of Season 2 will test Kara’s friendship with Lena, first by introducing Ms. Luthor’s ex-beau — the dangerous and shady Jack Spheer (iZombie‘s Rahul Kohli) — and then by setting up a potential alliance between Lena and Queen Rhea, whose mysterious plan quickly escalates. Meanwhile, Kara and Maggie will grow closer as they team up to rescue Alex from a life-threatening situation, and James will find a new purpose as Guardian becomes National City’s only hope against a string of deadly attacks.
    SEASON FINALE (MAY 22): In addition to meeting the infamous General Zod, viewers should keep an eye out for some returning favorites as the season comes to a climax. “With the return of Superman and Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart first resurfaces on May 15), we are poised for our biggest most exciting episode of the season,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “Big fights, big guest stars, big emotion — it’s going to be amazing.”

  3. Supergirl Casts Man of Steel and Smallville Alum Mark Gibbon as General Zod (Date: 21 April 2017)
    Mark Gibbon, a Canadian character actor who played one of the oil rig workers rescued by Superman in Man of Steel, will next take on the role of General Zod in Supergirl. Gibbon will be a recognizable face to fans of geek entertainment, with roles on TV and in film including Smallville, Arrow, and The X-Files. He also has a voice-acting resume that includes playing the Incredible Hulk, The Thing, and Nick Fury in various Marvel animated projects.

  4. The Flash’s Future Shock: ‘Barry Is in Shambles’ After Losing Iris (Date: 20 April 2017)
    The Barry of the future “is a guy who has lost everything,” Grant Gustin told TVLine while standing adjacent to the Flash’s time tunnel set, which for this episode was made to look dusty, desolate and in disrepair. With a nod to that mess, “Barry looks pretty similar — he is in shambles,” Gustin said. “He does not look good.” Devastated by losing the love of his life, this Barry is “totally alone” until his past self arrives, setting the stage for double the Gustin. “It’s a lot of scenes with Barry and Barry, and they’re pretty emotional scenes from both sides,” says the actor. All told, “They were some of the more challenging scenes I’ve done — if not just this year, in the whole series, because I’m my own scene partner.”

  5. The Flash’s Danielle Panabaker Breaks Down Killer Frost’s Chilling New Look (Date: 26 April 2017)
    In her previous, Earth-Two incarnation, Killer Frost was clad in leather pants and a jacket, “so this is pretty different with the skirts and stuff,” Danielle Panabaker shared during our visit to the CW hit’s set, where the warm actress was almost (almost) jarring to lay eyes on, wearing her full costume (including a tiny extra flourish not spied in either of these exclusive photos).

ARROW CAST & CREW INTERVIEWS

  1. Arrow boss teases trials ahead before ultimate Prometheus showdown (Date: 25 April 2017)
    When Arrow returns after its long hiatus, Felicity will find herself going up against Team Arrow.
    With Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) still on the loose, mysterious hacker organization Helix offers Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) a way to track him down in exchange for her services involving something illegal. Needless to say, Oliver (Stephen Amell) & Co. won’t be happy.
    But Ollie and Felicity will be forced to face their divide head on next week when the duo gets trapped in the bunker together. Will this actually bring them closer together? EW turned to executive producer Wendy Mericle to get the scoop.

  2. Michelle ARROW EP TEASES DEATHSTROKE’S RETURN, AL GHUL SIBLING RIVALRY & MORE (Date: 26 April 2017)
    As “Arrow” hurtles towards its Season 5 finale, Oliver Queen and his team are in more trouble than ever. They may have dealt Prometheus a major blow, but he’s still at large. Meanwhile, Felicity is knee-deep with the mysterious hacker group Helix, which has some dubious intentions. Even as Team Arrow deals with these threats on two fronts, the return of Katie Cassidy’s Black Siren looms in the distance, threatening to kick off with an emotional gut punch. Nevertheless, executive producer Wendy Mericle is looking forward to “Arrow’s” future with a lot of hope. Speaking with CBR, Mericle addressed all of the threats facing Team Arrow. She also explained how Season 1 characters like Deathstroke and Yao Fei will return, delved into Felicity’s relationship with Oliver, teased Malcolm Merlyn and Artemis’ important roles in the Season 5 finale, discussed how the show will fill the gap left by the flashbacks in Season 6 and more.
