ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow: Ghostbusters’ Ernie Hudson Signs On for Guest Role (Date: 06 March 2019)
    1. Ernie Hudson will make a guest appearance in “Spartan,” the upcoming 19 episode of Arrow’s seventh season. The episode will see Hudson play a Four-Star General with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) who joins Team Arrow for a special mission. The kicker is that Hudson’s character apparently has a history with David Ramsey’s John Diggle. In turn, unresolved tension from their past is likely to surface when they are once again forced to work together.

  1. Arrow to End With Shortened Season 8 (Date: 6 March 2019)
    1. Oliver Queen is hanging up his bow and arrow: The CW’s flagship DCTV series Arrow will end its run with an abbreviated Season 8. Star Stephen Amell made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever.” The actor went on to reveal that the show will “return for a final run of 10 episodes this fall,” before concluding, “There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.”
    2. “This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind,” executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz said in a statement. “We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

I think it was very gentlemanly for Steve to put the arms back on & set the shield in place after he stripped “himself”. I’ve worked retail w/ mannequins and if a customer needed something off one, it’s not unusual for them to do it themself and leave the mannequin armless.

Apocalypse was terrible but Logan was incredible. I’m in for one last FOX ride before Disney takes over. the big screen mutants. I’ll decide if I like it or not after I see it. It’s too bad Logan couldn’t have been their swan song but I wouldn’t want Apocalypse to be the last team-up film. It’s also too bad Hugh Jackman couldn’t have done this one too. But it is what it is. Within a month will have a definitive change up movie in Endgame AND Dark Phoenix. The real question is what’s next Disney?

Odin, the marvel version, is a bad dad??? He benevolently rules over a peaceful kingdom & offers every convenience of wealth & luxury to his boys. Of which one is the son of his enemy & he still raises him as one of his own. So why exactly is he a bad dad? Is it because he won’t allow his spoiled brat son Thor take over the kingdom? Or maybe because he doesn’t his children to spent their entire lives discounting his warnings about their sister? Which the way the movies portray these characters they would. Ragnarok is a prophecy everyone in the kingdom is aware of. Everyone (if they believe) knows it will come to pass. No one behaves as if they thinks it will happen during their life time. So, Odin is doing them all a favor, not knowing when he will die, to create an environment in which the unnecessary burden of contemplating the end of Asgard, is replaced with enjoying it while it is. Sounds like a pretty good guy to me.

With a random noun generator at our fingertips, and just the right amount of competitive motivation to spur the creative mind, we attempt a game that takes seemingly innocuous objects, and bestows them with supreme Time Lord powers…of some sort. The usefulness of that power is entirely subjective.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Rumored to Be Ending After “Crisis on Infinite Earths” (Date: 23 Feb 2019)
    1. Both shows have already been renewed for their eighth and fifth seasons respectively, but the new rumor suggests they will end after those seasons. If this is the case, it will likely tie into The CW’s plans for their next crossover event with “Crisis on Infinite Earths” refreshing the landscape of the network’s superhero shows.
    2. Amell teased what he saw as the end of his role on the series last year, explaining on Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast that there’s only one box left to check on Oliver Queen’s “to do” list. “The only thing that is left for him to do – and he doesn’t need to die to do this – is he needs to leave a legacy.” Amell said last year. “Because we have all these other shows that exist. So whether Arrow continued on in the absence of Oliver Queen, or someone else took up the mantle of the Green Arrow… I think leaving a legacy is the last box left to tick for the character.”

GENERAL DC NEWS:

  1. ‘Batwoman’: Elizabeth Anweis Cast In the CW’s DC Pilot (Date: 22 Feb 2019)
    1. Elizabeth Anweis (9-1-1) has been cast opposite Ruby Rose in Batwoman. Anweis will play Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Kate Kane’s step-mother. Catherine made her fortune as a savvy, bullheaded defense contractor, and all those billions position her as one of Gotham’s most powerful residents. For Catherine, it’s a matter of the bottom line: Batwoman is bad for business.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. ‘Arrow’: Two Major Characters Leave the Show (Date: 11 Feb 2019)
    1. By the end of the episode, both Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and the younger version of William Clayton (Jack Moore) left the city and, as far as we can tell, the series.
    2. Kellum posted to Twitter: I’m so thankful to have been a part of this amazing show for the last four years. It has truly been a pleasure to get to work with such wonderful human beings on a daily basis and to interact with all the fans who make the show possible….This has been the most exhilarating experience I’ve ever had and I will definitely pop in here and there (you haven’t seen the last of Curtis Holt) in the future….Most importantly, thank you to all the fans who accepted me on this fantastic journey. I’ll always get to say I was Mr. Terrific! That’s so damn cool! Excelsior!

  2. Why the Arrowverse Shows and Friends Will Likely Leave Netflix (Date: 12 Feb 2019)
    1. Like practically every other Hollywood studio or network, WarnerMedia is set to launch its own streaming service which will seek to compete against the likes of Netflix and Hulu, as well as Disney’s forthcoming launch of Disney+. And while the service is set to include plenty of new content — including some new DC content — like its competitor Disney, Warner Bros. is reportedly planning to pull some of its content from Netflix ahead of the launch of WarnerMedia.
    2. With Reilly telling the press that “sharing destination assets is not a good model,” and the belief that said assets should be “exclusive to the service,” it would seem the Arrowverse shows are likely to follow suit. Currently, The CW and Netflix have a deal which sees the channel’s shows debut on the streaming service just weeks after a season wraps up. That deal, however, is set to expire this Spring, and it’s not expected that it’ll be renewed. As Reilly explained, Warner Bros. is very interested in putting those titles “on our platform,” which means Warner Bros. would likely retain exclusive streaming rights to shows such as Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and the non-Arrowverse Black Lightning.
    3. It remains to be seen whether or not WarnerMedia will absorb the previously launched DC Universe, which is home to shows such as Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders, and the forthcoming Doom Patrol. Warner Bros. has yet to unveil an official launch date for its latest streaming service, but it is expected to arrive, at least in beta form, by year’s end. As for the price point, the streaming service is expected to offer three different membership tiers, though how those will break down remains unknown at this time.

FEEDBACK

From our last video on YouTube: Pfruit0916 First, we got a documentary and now a horror episode. It’s nice that after 7yrs they are still doing new things to keep the episodes exciting and Brendan Fletcher did a great job as Stanley, he was very creepy. The one complaint I had was the amount of time spent on trying to save Dinah, it wasn’t really suspenseful because we know that she survives in the flash-forwards. I’m okay with Curtis leaving, the writers seemed to be struggling to incorporate him in the story for a while now, but maybe he will show up again for the next crossover since they will probably need every hero they can get. Also, his exit gives Felicity full control of Helix, so Smoak Tech can finally rise. William going to live with his grandparents makes sense. I’m glad it wasn’t Oliver sending him away for his safety but instead giving him a choice in what happens to him. I am incredibly curious about why William feel like they “abandoned” him, when we see that it was his decision to leave and olicity said they would call, visit, etc.(I appreciate the detail of having Felicity show him the trick on the Rubik’s cube, since it was in the flash-forwards at the beginning of the season. But that still leaves me wonder how william knew where her office was in Smoak Tech if he left before the company was built.) Mia is the olicity baby, so I guess the transitions in 7×08 were actually clues. It makes sense, they have a son who is tech oriented like Felicity and a daughter who is a fighter like Oliver. Plus, they get to parallel Emiko/Oliver’s relationship in the present with Mia/William’s in the future. I remember Oliver randomly mentioning “The scroll & Key” in 7×08, I’m wondering if that’s going to play into the flash-forwards because Mia has a giant key tattoo. We know from Oliver’s history that all of his tattoos had significance. I’m thinking William is the scroll & Mia is the Key in this equation and that’s why are being brought together after all these years. Lastly, I’ve noticed that many aspects of this season are like season 1. Random things happened like Walter buy Unidac industries only for them to later reveal that it was a major plot point because that company built the earthquake machine. I think they are doing that again with the fires in the Glades. We found out Emiko’s mom was shot & it was covered up with a building fire. Earlier this season she helped stop a group of men who were setting a theatre on fire in the Glades.They said someone was buying up the burnt properties for cheap. I think thats Dante/The Ninth Circle and it plays a part in how the Glades rise.
