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.

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.

  3. ‘Arrow’ Spinoff Starring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy & Juliana Harkavy Set As CW Backdoor Pilot (Date: 24 Sept 2019)
    1. The CW is moving forward with another Arrow spinoff headlined by Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy reprising their Arrow roles.
    2. The new superhero squad is a next-generation version of Team Arrow with the costumed offspring of the original membership.

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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow’s Jonah Hex will return in the Arrowverse’s ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ crossover (Date: 6 September 2019)
    1. EW has learned that Johnathon Schaech (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Now Apocalypse) is returning as Jonah Hex for the Arrowverse’s forthcoming crossover. At this point, there aren’t any details on how his DC Comics gunslinger will fit into the epic five-hour event, which includes Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman.
    2. https://ew.com/tv/2019/09/06/jonah-hex-arrowverses-crisis-on-infinite-earths-crossover/
  2. Crisis on Infinite Earths Recruits The Flash’s John Wesley Shipp (Date: 10 September 2019)
    1. Shipp has a role to play in this year’s five-show Arrowverse crossover. However, there’s no word yet on which role he will reprise for the event. Throughout his Arrowverse tenure, Shipp has played three separate characters: Henry Allen, Jay Garrick and the Barry Allen of Earth-90. Henry died in Season 2, so it likely won’t be this character. In Season 4, Jay announced his plan to train a new Flash for Earth-3, after which he would retire from the superhero life. As such, it’s possible for Jay to return with his new trainee in tow.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/crisis-on-infinite-earths-john-wesley-shipp/
  3. Arrow Favorite Willa Holland to Return and Recur During Final Season (Date: 18 September 2019)
    1. The character that Arrow fans most hoped would put in an appearance during the final season — Oliver’s sister, played by former series regular Willa Holland — will indeed be seen again, TVLine has learned. But wait, there’s more: Holland is confirmed to not just guest-star but recur during the CW series’ 10-episode farewell run.
    2. https://tvline.com/2019/09/18/arrow-willa-holland-returns-final-season-thea/?fbclid=IwAR2QJpp7uXz2vRsOUdHF_N5taCD1RgObN1ruQNVfYV92BPKnP-ZzIbPunr8
  4. Tom Welling To Reprise ‘Smallville’ Clark Kent Role In Arrowverse Crossover On the CW (Date: 19 Sept 2019)
    1. And then there were three. Tom Welling is set to reprise his Smallville role as Clark Kent in the CW’s upcoming DC Arrowverse crossover, joining two other actors who have played the Man of Steel, Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh that are already set to portray the character in the crossover.

Starling Tribune – Season 7.5 Edition – “Egg MacGuffin” Review (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast) ST248

The Starling Tribune Reporters Chris and Michelle review the Legends Of Tomorrow season 4 thirteenth episode “Egg MacGuffin.” The Reporters discuss what the real MacGuffin was, they struggle and ultimately FAIL to remember the name of the Entrapment film, a question if Nate can actually be knocked out, a possible Hallmark Romanti-Con, if Gary’s turn was believable, if Nate’s decision to save Ray was the right decision and if Nora will be able to handle her love Ray.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be bidding farewell to two series regulars during the superhero team-up drama’s upcoming fifth season: Brandon Routh, who plays Ray Palmer/Atom, and Courtney Ford, who portrays Nora Darhk. Routh and Ford’s exits stem from a creative decision to wrap up their storyline. Because of the nature of the time-traveling Legends of Tomorrow, there has been a natural character turnover, with series regulars leaving as their stories come to an end and new ones coming on board. Of the large regular ensemble cast that started in Season 1, only a couple will still be on the show by the end of this coming season.

    2. Long article
    3. About the show ending, Stephen Amell said, “I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time. I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow’s Katherine McNamara Promoted to Series Regular for Final Season (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. TVLine has learned that Katherine McNamara, who debuted and recurred during Season 7 as the 2040 street fighter-turned-rebel leader, has been promoted to series regular status for the CW drama’s 10-episode farewell run.
    2. The news comes as little surprise seeing as Joseph David-Jones, who plays Future Connor Hawke — Ben Turner aka Bronze Tiger’s son, who is ultimately adopted by Diggle and Lyla — was himself promoted to series regular last month. Plus, as first reported by TVLine, the role of Diggle and Lyla’s grown-up biological son, John Jr., is being cast for the flash-forward storyline, in which he thus far has only been referenced or encountered off-screen.
    3. Arrow kicks off its 10-episode final season on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9;8c, with the premiere titled “Starling City.”

GENERAL DC News

  1. Legends of Tomorrow: Constantine to Return for Season 5 (Date: 10 July 2019)
    1. Ryan is returning as a series regular for the show’s fifth season which will debut at midseason. This will surely be good news for Constantine fans as well as will be very helpful for the Legends themselves considering how the Season 4 finale teased at a major new threat coming for not just the team, but the world.
    2. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/07/10/legends-of-tomorrow-matt-ryan-constantine-series-regular-season-/
  2. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ups Astra actress to series regular for season 5 (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. Astra Logue will continue to cause trouble for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in season 5. EW can exclusively reveal that Olivia Swann, who portrays Astra, a.k.a. Constantine’s Achilles heel, has been promoted to series regular for season 5. It’s fair to say this doesn’t mean anything good for the Legends seeing as how last season ended with Astra releasing the souls of Genghis Khan, Charles Manson, and many other historical bad guys back into the world of the living.
    2. “A lot of what Constantine is going to be dealing with this is season is his very complicated relationship with her and a desire to save her despite all the pain and trouble she’s putting us through,” producer Keto Shimizu says.

GENERAL DC News

  1. DC Comics Just Killed Its Vertigo Imprint (Date: 21 June 2019)
    1. DC Entertainment has confirmed that as of January 2020, Vertigo—renamed in part for last year’s shakeup as DC Vertigo—will wrap up operations, as will the DC Zoom and DC Ink YA brands.
    2. Replacing Vertigo, Zoom, and Ink will be three new age-banded labels for all of DC Comics’ content: DC Kids, for readers aged 8-12; DC, for readers 13 and above; and finally DC Black Label, for readers 17 and above.
    3. In a statement acknowledging the closure, DC Editor in Chief Dan DiDio stated: We’re returning to a singular presentation of the DC brand that was present throughout most of our history until 1993 when we launched Vertigo to provide an outlet for edgier material. That kind of material is now mainstream across all genres, so we thought it was the right time to bring greater clarity to the DC brand and reinforce our commitment to storytelling for all of our fans in every age group. This new system will replace the age ratings we currently use on our material.
