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.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  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. Returning Arrowverse series Supergirl, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will remain in their current nights and times.

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.”
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/05/01/flash-killer-frost-spoilers/  
  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.”
    Link:http://www.cbr.com/interview-supergirl-andrew-kreisberg-superman-general-zod/   
  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.”

  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).

    Mark Gibbon has been spotted on set in action as General Zod. Behold, even set video of him being a jerk and heat visioning some people! Also spotted on set was Tyler Hoechlin, returning to action as the Man of Steel.

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.
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/04/25/arrow-season-5-finale-spoilers/  
  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.

  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Arrow, Blacklist, Scandal, and more (Date: 07 April 2017)
    Is there anything you can share on the Arrow finale? —
    Oliver will have to use everything (and everyone) in his arsenal in order to take down Prometheus. “The alliances are going to be very surprising,” EP Wendy Mericle says of the finale. “You’re not going to believe who Oliver is working with to defeat Prometheus. It’s going to be really emotional. It’s going to be all about Oliver’s family, but not the family we’re thinking of right now. It’s going to end in a giant explosion, but not where we think it’s going to end, and the emotional punch is going to be bigger than the actual physical part of the bombs going off.”

  2. ARROW: MANU BENNETT’S DEATHSTROKE WILL RETURN, CONFIRMS STEPHEN AMELL (Date: 10 April 2017)

  3. Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke Will Return To Arrow, Despite Actor’s Denials (Date: 12 April 2017)
    Bennett had tweeted that on Monday that he wasn’t returning to Arrow, and then followed it up yesterday with a tweet that read, “Enough b.s about d.s!!! FACT: Deathstroke Arrow are currently filming in Vancouver IS NOT ME. I am in Auckland filming The Shannara Chronicles.” While Bennett was not currently filming Arrow, it seems that he is or will be at some point this week. The “other” Deathstroke was likely a stunt performer, there to shoot some scenes for which Bennett wouldn’t have removed the character’s trademark helmet.

Meanwhile, in a Tom Cavanagh-directed episode of The Flash, Barry will make his long-awaited trip to 2024 where he’ll attempt to discover Savitar’s identity, but he runs into something unexpected when he meets the future versions of his S.T.A.R.

ARROW CAST AND CREW INTERVIEWS

  1. Arrow’s Juliana Harkavy Talks ‘Iconic’ Canary Gig, Possible Black Siren Brawl (Date: 12 April 2017)
    Now among Team Arrow’s hodgepodge of assets is Dinah Drake, who slowly but surely has assumed the role of Black Canary (about a year, in real time, after Laurel Lance’s tragic death). TVLine spoke with newcomer Juliana Harkavy about whipping herself into crimefighting shape, the secret to the Canary Cry, Dinah’s dynamic with her teammates and the prospect of a showdown with her predecessor’s devious doppelganger.

GREEN ARROW COMICS AND TOY NEWS

  1. Kotobukiya Debuts Stunning Wonder Woman Movie Statue (Date: 07 April 2017)
    Wonder Woman is part of Kotobukiya’s ArtFX line of statues, which are all in 1/6 scale. The statue features Diana in an action-ready pose, bracing for combat with her sword and shield in hand. The base suggests it will interlock with other statues, though on its own is rather boring. Still, the lush reds and rich golds and blues are stunning, and Kotobukiya always excels at sculpting hair. The statue also holds a well-crafted resemblance to Gal Gadot, who has her trademark golden lasso at her side. Wonder Woman will retail for 13,800 Yen, which translates to about $124 USD. She is shipping sometime in July of 2017.

  2. Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp To Leave Wonder Woman After June’s #25 (Date: 12 April 2017)
    Both writer Greg Rucka and artist Liam Sharp announced today on social media that they will leave DC’s twice-monthly Wonder Woman title after the oversized Wonder Woman #25 ships on June 28. Rucka took to his Tumblr to tell fans that he would be leaving the title due to the strain of the twice-monthly schedule. Identifying it as his last issue on the title “for the time being,” Rucka advised fans against assuming the worst and wrote, “I just can’t maintain the pace on the title while also fulfilling my commitments to my other collaborators. It is, genuinely, as simple as that.” Shortly thereafter, Sharp took to Facebook to confirm that he, too, would be leaving the title — but cryptically teasing that he wouldn’t be going too far.

  3. ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ Writer to Take on ‘Wonder Woman’ Comic This Summer (Exclusive) (Date: 13 April 2017)
    Shea Fontana will take over the title in July, following a critically acclaimed run by writer Greg Rucka. Fontana has signed on to write five issues of the twice-monthly series for the heroine, beginning with July’s No. 26, with a storyline that will introduce a new villain into the DC Universe. The move comes fresh off the success of her DC Super Hero Girls work. The artist for Fontana’s first two issues will be Mirka Andolfo, whose work has previously appeared in the DC Comics: Bombshells series. Fontana and Andolfo’s first issue of Wonder Woman, No. 26, will be released in comic stores and digitally July 12, with No. 27 to be released July 26.

ARROW NEWS

  1. Arrow Boss: Oliver/Felicity-Centric Episode Will Offer ‘Full-On Exploration’ of Why Season 4 Breakup Happened (Date: 03 April 2017)
    Amell first teased the “Olicity”-centric episode last month, tweeting that he was filming the “first episode EVER where the same actor shares every single one of my scenes with me. Going to be great.” He added, “And by my scenes I mean our scenes. By definition. Super cool episode.” Amell was referring to Season 5, Episode 20, which is titled “Underneath,” airs during May sweeps and will revisit, in depth, Felicity’s termination of their wedding engagement after learning that Oliver 1) had a son, 2) didn’t tell her, and 3) then didn’t include his bride-to-be in the decision to send young William and his mother away, to safety.

  3. Arrow: Dangerous Liaisons Synopsis Released (Date: 06 April 2017)

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Legends of Tomorrow EP Klemmer Compares Season 3 To Game of Thrones (Date: 03 April 2017)
    Executive producer Phil Klemmer suggested that fans should get used to losses and that they’re committed to going the full Game of Thrones in season 3 so that fans never have the comfort of assuming that anyone is safe. “It’s always been a rule since the Hawkman death [in the pilot], Greg [Berlanti] said it before the show was even a show about how his mission was to make this not like network TV, that no one would be bulletproof, that it was more like the Ned Stark idea of anybody could lose their head at any time. As we’ve been roughly breaking out next season, we’re more committed to that than ever. Again, that’s a really bittersweet thing because we think the dynamic of the characters have is so special and wonderful, and at the same time, you don’t want the audience to become too comfortable on the show. It is supposed to be a wild ride. You need that real consequences and real bloodshed to counterbalance the fluffiness and the silliness of the show. Otherwise it would just float off into space.”

  2. How The Supergirl Effects Team Brought Parasite To Life (Date: 04 April 2017)
    The CW has released this video showing the visual effects for the Parasite episode of Supergirl from earlier this season. The episode was called Changing, the sixth of the season, and featured scientist Rudy Jones becoming the classic DC villain. It also showed us both Mon-El and Guardian in action after Supergirl and J’onn J’onzz were drained by Parasite. There’s no dialogue in the video, but you can see from the different effects shots how many different layers are needed for some of what look like simple scenes and how much of the shots are practical compared to computer generated.

  3. TVLine Items: Legends Star’s Status, People’s Choice Moves to E! and More (Date: 06 April 2017)
    At least one of Legends of Tomorrow‘s season-ending mysteries has been solved.
    As the CW drama’s sophomore run came to a close this week, Rip Hunter (played by original cast member Arthur Darvill) quietly packed a bag and bid the Waverider and its new captain, Sara, adieu. That, however, does not mean viewers have seen the last of the Brit.
    “We’ve got plans for Rip for next year,” Legends showrunner Marc Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly Radio on Thursday. “It’s just in a different capacity than him being a member of the team.” As for another burning Q — whether sister series such as Arrow and The Flash will reflect the weird reality on hand when the Legends crash-landed in 2017 Los Angeles — Guggenheim in a word said no. “We never want television to feel like a homework assignment,” where viewers of one #DCTV show must track all of them. “That said… there will be an explanation in Season 3 as to why you’re not seeing dinosaurs run through Central City.”

  4. The Once And Future Flash Synopsis Released Online (Date: 06 April 2017)
    Barry (Grant Gustin) travels to the future to find out Savitar’s still unknown identity in the hopes of saving Iris (Candice Patton).  Upon his arrival in 2024, Barry encounters future versions of his Team Flash friends, who, following the death of Iris, have become very different people, profoundly impacted by their showdown with Savitar.  It will be up to Barry to infuse a sense of hope back into the team, as he proves to be hero his future friends have been waiting for. Meanwhile, back in 2017, the hunt for Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) continues.  Tom Cavanagh directed the episode written by Carina Adly MacKenzie.

  5. iZombie’s Rahul Kohli Comes to Supergirl in “Ace Reporter” Synopsis (Date: 06 April 2017)
    Lena’s (guest star Katie McGarth) ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer (guest star Rahul Kohli), comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper (guest Star Ian Gomez) in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Paula Yoo & Caitlin Parrish.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supergirl, Grey’s Anatomy, Blindspot, and more (Date: 24 March 2017)
    Arrow finale scoop! — As the season heads toward the ultimate showdown between Oliver and Chase, we’re going to be seeing a very different season finale this year. “We’re not going to destroy the city,” EP Marc Guggenheim teases. “We’re not even going to threaten the city. In fact, I can also tell you the finale doesn’t even take place in the city. Finally, the citizens of Star City can breathe easily in May.” Wherever the finale takes place, Guggenheim adds, “You can expect a good number of returning characters, characters you haven’t seen in a while, back in the episode.”
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/24/spoiler-room-supergirl-greys-anatomy-blindspot/  
  2. ARROW: CAPTAIN BOOMERANG ACTOR TEASES RETURN (Date: 25 March 2017)
    The classic DC Comics rogue, better known as Captain Boomerang, was introduced on the third season of “Arrow,” in the two-part crossover with “The Flash,” but hasn’t been shown since. However, actor Nick Tarabay suggests that could change soon. “Who really misses this guy?” the actor wrote in a tweet containing a photo of Boomerang. “Cause as you know….What goes around ALWAYS comes back around.” When Boomerang was last seen, he was incarcerated in the secret A.R.G.U.S. supermax prison on Lian Yu. How or when Boomerang might escape will have to remain mystery as of now.
    Link:http://www.cbr.com/arrow-captain-boomerang-return/  
  3. Marc Guggenheim says ‘Arrow’s’ Vigilante is someone we already know (Date: 26 March 2017)
    Vigilante has made a bad habit of getting in Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) way — and the Green Arrow’s way for that matter — all year, but no matter how often he shows up, we’re no closer to unmasking him. According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, that’s a mystery for Season 6. We know who it is, but we were kind of intrigued by the idea of having a mystery that led into the next season,” Guggenheim told us at Paleyfest 2017. “We were excited at the prospect of just letting this play out for a little while longer, and it gives us something cool to do in Season 6. “As a general rule, I’m not a fan of mystery characters who when you take off the mask the audience goes, ‘What a minute, I’ve never seen that person before in my life,’” Guggenheim jokes. “I’m probably not spoiling anything by saying whoever’s underneath the Vigilante mask, you’ve seen that person before.”
    Link:http://screenertv.com/television/arrow-marc-guggenheim-vigilantes-identity-someone-we-know/  
  4. ARROW: KATIE CASSIDY WILL RETURN AS SERIES REGULAR FOR SEASON 6 (Date: 27 March 2017)
    Laurel Lance is back! Sort of. Though her character died in Season 4, longtime “Arrow” star Katie Cassidy will return, but with a twist: she will play Black Siren, Earth-2’s evil version of Laurel, as a series regular in Season 6. Additionally, Black Siren will feature in the last two episodes of Season 5. “One of the things that most excites us about ‘Arrow’ is that we go where the story takes us. Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren,” explained executive producer Marc Guggenheim in a statement. “We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to ‘Arrow’ as Black Siren, though as her appearances on ‘Arrow’ and ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ this season show, she never really left the family.”
    Link:http://www.cbr.com/arrow-katie-cassidy-series-regular-season-6-black-siren/  
  5. Arrow: What’s really going on with Helix? (Date: 28 March 2017)
    “We are going to see somebody [else],” Mericle teases. “What’s interesting about it is he’s not actually at Helix right now, so there’s going to be a big episode where we find out who this person is, and Felicity is involved in helping him. It’s really messed up.” But Felicity’s dealings with Helix will also help her to better understand what Team Arrow — Oliver (Stephen Amell) in particular — have been facing over the last five seasons. “Felicity’s use of Pandora is very similar to Oliver and Diggle’s [David Ramsey] use of violence,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “It’s the hacker equivalent. You’re using violence for a good means, but violence is not necessarily a good thing. So what’s the cost to Felicity in doing that? We don’t want to turn Felicity into a killer, but we wanted to explore how Felicity has been spending basically five years with Team Arrow now, and she’s been spending five years with people who solve problems by not just resorting to violence, but by resorting to means that are morally questionable. Felicity is going to start discovering what happens when you fight fire with fire — do you get burned?”
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/28/arrow-felicity-helix-spoilers/  
  6. Legends of Tomorrow boss, cast on that shocking Felicity twist (Date: 28 March 2017)
    Marc Guggenheim told EW, “It’s always nice when you can pull in a character from one of the other shows. We talked about a lot of different ideas, and I said, ‘Since this is an alternate reality and we’ll probably never have the opportunity to do so again, I think it would be fun if we did Felicity as a superhero,’ because I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I have zero intention of ever putting Felicity in a mask and costume on Arrow. There’s two lines in the sand that I’ve drawn for Arrow for myself,” Guggenheim says. “I can’t speak for Greg [Berlanti] or for Wendy [Mericle], but for as long as I’m involved with the show, the two things I never want to do is kill off Thea [Willa Holland] and put Felicity in a mask and a costume. Those, to me, are two lines that I just think are a bridge too far. Thea, because we’ve taken so many family members away from Oliver, and Felicity because when you put a character like that in a costume, I think it diminishes who that character is and it makes the idea of superheroics seem silly.”
    Link:http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/28/legends-tomorrow-felicity-superhero-death/  
  7. Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Once, Lucifer, Scorpion, Arrow, Grimm, Suits, Mr. Robot, Chicago Med and More (Date: 30 March 2017)
    Any hint as to when Arrow’s Thea will return? — Willa Holland will be on hand for the final three of this season’s five remaining episodes. “Thea is the daughter of sociopaths, which is one of the biggest challenges any human being can really face,” notes co-showrunner Wendy Mericle, “so she’s going to grappling with that and trying to understand: What is this in her that makes her so kind of Moira-esque, and how is she going to manage it? Ultimately, she and Oliver are going to come to the same conclusion about how to do that, by the finale.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

  1. Lynda Carter Confirms That She Is Playing A Durlan on Supergirl (Date: 28 March 2017)
    The episode of Supergirl, titled “Distant Sun,” provided the audience with a much clearer look at the “true form” of President Olivia Marsdin, who had been revealed early this season as a shape-shifting alien. In the privacy of her own office Marsdin was able to transform completely into a quasi-reptilian alien form.

  2. Will The Thinker Be The Flash’s Season 4 Big Bad? (Date: 28 March 2017)
    When Abra Kadabra was talking to The Flash about his most dangerous foes, he rattled off a number of familiar names, including Zoom and Eobard Thawne…and one less-familiar one (at least to the TV audience): “DeVoe.” Longtime comic book readers would recognize that name: Clifford DeVoe is a longtime Flash and Titans villain better known as The Thinker. Created in 1943, The Thinker is one of The Flash’s earliest villains. Originally a foe to Jay Garrick, DeVoe battled three generations of Flashes before his death in The Flash #134 in 1998. After his death, though, his brain patterns were used to create an AI that went on to become an antihero.

  3. LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: EXPECT NEW CHARACTERS IN SEASON 3 (Date: 28 March 2017)
    According to “Legends of Tomorrow” executive producer and showrunner Phil Klemmer, adding new characters is “for sure” again the plan for season three of the DC Comics-based series, which has already been ordered by The CW — although exactly which new faces will join the show may not yet be totally cemented. “We haven’t fully pitched it, but we’ve got great ideas, and hopefully the studio and network agree,” Klemmer told CBR. “But so much of the show is working well this year. You just want to play to your strengths, and keep having fun.”

  4. LEGENDS OF TOMORROW PLAN TO RESTORE REALITY IN SEASON FINALE PROMO (Date: 29 March 2017)
    The finale, “Aruba,”  will not air at its regular time, but will debut Tuesday, April 4th at 8:00 EST.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Once Upon a Time, Arrow, Riverdale, and more (Date: 17 March 2017)
    Can you provide any Felicity scoop for Arrow? — Aligning with Helix, and therefore using even more unconventional methods than she does with Team Arrow, is certainly going to take Felicity to an interesting place — in particular, one in which she may come to understand her ex a bit better. “We’re starting to put her in Oliver’s footsteps a little bit,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “She’s going to get a chance to experience things a little bit more from Oliver’s perspective. I think the reason they broke up was her difficulty to see things from Oliver’s perspective. They broke up fundamentally because she didn’t trust Oliver, and the reason she didn’t trust Oliver is she couldn’t understand why he made the decisions he made.”

  2. Did Arrow’s Stephen Amell Tease The Return Of Deathstroke & The Island? (Date: 20 March 2017)
    Stephen Amell took to social media to hint the return of the Island. The actor posted a familiar photo with the caption, “Hello old friend.” The picture itself shows Slade Wilson’s Deathstroke mask placed upon a stake. The monument is one that was left on the island, and an arrow is shown sticking through the mask’s left eye slit.

  3. The Bruce Springsteen Songs of Arrow — Including Season 5’s Penultimate Episode (Date: 22 March 2017)
    Revealed early to ComicBook.com, the title of the twenty-second episode of Arrow’s fifth season, which should begin shooting in the next couple of days, will be “Missing.”

  4. Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Grey’s, Bones, Arrow, Grimm, Once, Bates Motel, Hawaii Five-0, Walking Dead and More (Date: 22 March 2017)
    Question: Have any scoop on Arrow‘s Olicity to tease? — Though Oliver has bigger fish to fry for the foreseeable future, Stephen Amell had this to say about Oliver’s take on Felicity’s recent secret-keeping: “Look, he does trust her, but that doesn’t mean he has to agree with her.” That distinction will be put to the test in Episode 19, which is officially titled “Dangerous Liaisons” but “you could almost call it ‘Team Arrow vs. Team Felicity,’” Amell shared. Felicity and her Helix hackers and Oliver’s associates “are both after the same objective, but after it in different ways. And that pushes us into a real exploration of why Oliver and Felicity have been behaving the way that they’ve been behaving this year.”

    Meanwhile, at the Hall of Doom, “Legends of Tomorrow’s” Legion of Doom has used the Spear of Destiny to create their own reality — and that reality includes a big nod to the 1973 “Super Friends” cartoon from Hanna Barbera. On his Twitter, executive producer Marc Guggenheim unveiled the establishing shot for “Doomworld,” the penultimate episode of Season 2. The photo shows a structure not unlike STAR Labs; however, the building has a rounder shape with concave windows, making it look almost like a helmet… much like the Hall of Doom from “Super Friends.”

FEEDBACK

 

From FaceBook:

Starling Tribune shared Entertainment Weekly’s post.March 18 at 7:18pm ·
            No speed villain for Flash next season? Yes, please!

Steven Carl Wait what? Why would they choose a villain without super speed?
            Starling Tribune Because they’ve done that each season. Remember, not every   viewer is a comic fan, so they have to mix things up to keep viewers.
            Steven Carl I was being silly. You can’t have effectively the same bad guy each season. New metas for the BBG .

Haley Malle What madness is this?!

  2. Spoiler Room: Scoop on This Is Us, Legends of Tomorrow, Vampire Diaries, more (Date: 10 March 2017)
    Is Talia going to appear in present-day Star City on Arrow? —
    Yes, and soon! “We will see her in the present day,” EP Marc Guggenheim teases. “What she wants from Oliver in the past is very different from what she wants from him in the present.” And yes, Guggenheim did confirm that Oliver has very purposefully never heard her last name. “Oliver couldn’t have heard it, because if he had, when Ra’s talked about his daughter he’d be like, ‘Yeah, the other daughter, I met her back in Russia,’” the EP says. “We were very cognizant not to retcon anything. So yes, she is Talia al Ghul, but Oliver obviously doesn’t know that.”

  1. Who Can Save Iris on ‘The Flash’? Candice Patton Has the BEST Answer (Date: 15 March 2017)
    Ever since Barry (Grant Gustin) slipped through time and saw god of speed Savitar slaughtering his true love, Iris (Candice Patton), The Flash has been all about changing the future to save her life. Honestly, it’s starting to look a little bleak…especially since the producers haven’t even clued Patton into what lies ahead for her character! “No, they didn’t tell me,” she confesses with a laugh. “I have no idea and it’s a little alarming. I think I know, but you never really know. I am just in the dark as the audience so it will be really interesting to see if Team Flash can pull it off. I’m hoping they can, because I need a job.”

  1. First Look At Captain Cold’s Return To Legends Of Tomorrow Is Kind Of Heartwrenching (Date: 15 March 2017)
    Wentworth Miller’s Leonard Snart has become one of the Arrow-verse’s most unexpectedly popular characters since his initial introduction on The Flash. He’s popped up here and there over the course of the last season in hallucinations or flashbacks, but next week’s episode will see him finally return in earnest. As the latest trailer indicates, it is a suitably tragic moment for his former comrades, because he bemusedly looks ready for a deadly fight.

  2. Chris INTERVIEW: ARROW’S PROMETHEUS ON HIS VENDETTA AGAINST OLIVER QUEEN (Date: 15 March 2017)
    “Arrow” recently revealed the identity of this season’s major villain, Prometheus, to be none other than Adrian Chase, aka Star City’s district attorney. Throughout the season, Prometheus/Chase’s attacks kept intensifying and becoming more and more personal. In his determination to destroy Oliver, Prometheus went so far as to kidnap Green Arrow’s girlfriend, Susan, determined to make Oliver suffer as much as he has. Ahead of the next stage of Prometheus’ master plan, CBR spoke with actor Josh Segarra about what he feels makes his bad guy tick, and his plans for Oliver Queen and Team Arrow.

  3. Is Arrow’s Talia Al Ghul Good Or Evil? Here’s What The Actress Says (Date: 14 March 2017)
    Arrow got a whole lot more badass in the flashbacks in Season 5 thanks to the introduction of none other than Talia al Ghul, who is best known as the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul in DC Comics. Arrow’s version of Talia stands on her own, however, and she doesn’t seem beholden to her father in the slightest. Lexa Doig plays Talia in the flashbacks, and she has brought layers of ambiguity to the character that has led many viewers to wonder if Talia is good or evil deep down. Doig recently spoke to CinemaBlend about her role on Arrow.

    In the wake of this stunning reveal, executive producer Wendy Mericle spoke to CBR and other reporters about what’s in store for Team Arrow now that Prometheus’ identity is out in the open. She addressed why she and the other showrunners made Chase Prometheus instead of Vigilante, why those chose now to make this reveal, what drives Chase to torture Oliver Queen and more. Why make Chase Prometheus instead of Vigilante? “I think one of the reasons we did that was because everyone would be thinking, “Of course he’s Vigilante!” Adrian Chase is Vigilante in the comic books, as you pointed out, and we thought it would be a really fun sort of twist to do what we’ve always done on the show, which is to take the comic book mythology and turn it on its head and see what kind of story we could mine from a surprise like that. It was also just something different for this season. We wanted to change up how we introduced the big bad and change up when we did it and how we did it. Hopefully, we succeeded in that this year.” She also said that Prometheus is going to mess with Lance as well.

CWrecap? @CWrecap   Adrian Chase and Crowley are twins right now as they are both 10 steps ahead #Supernatural #Arrow

The Starling Tribune? @CWrecap Also Savitar #TheFlash

CWrecap? @CWrecap @StarlingTribune True Triplets!

 

David Taylor? @DT2ComicsChat  John Diggle. Helmet. That will never not be funny.
The Starling Tribune? @DT2ComicsChat It’s a helmet with lights. So we can see his face. Because that makes sense.

David Taylor?
@DT2ComicsChat @StarlingTribune So much sense, I’d sure want THAT fashion accessory.

 

Consultant BlackAdam? @Starsaber_222 The ascent stage of the LEM had separate fuel tanks. Unless they were damaged, they shouldn’t have any problems making orbit.

The Starling Tribune? @Starsaber_222 Yeah. The writers played loose with the science

 

Consultant BlackAdam? @Starsaber_222 @StarlingTribune Over/under on how long @StargatePioneer will spend nitpicking the #rocketScience in this week’s #LegendsofTomorrow? My guess is 10 minutes when you do the episode about it.

The Starling Tribune?
@Starsaber_222 @StargatePioneer I’m guessing 5 minutes. He’ll want to get right to it
