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.

FEEDBACK:

Hey guys I love your show as always. There are a few thoughts I have and wanted to get your opinion on it as well.

I think Blackstar is actually Oliver And Felicity’s daughter. It makes sense, as she is super intelligent like Felicity and a great fighter like Oliver.

I wonder who is Emiko’s mother. My obvious thought is Ravager, considering her combat abilities and the history of Ravager and Robert, but I could be wrong. If that is the case, then why was Ravagers daughter never mentioned in season 2?

Thank you for your insight

David

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Stephen Amell Praises Stunt Team for Most Action-Packed ‘Arrow’ Episode Ever (Date: 27 Nov 2018)
    1. “Very proud of tonight’s episode,” Amell wrote. “It was a logistical quagmire because of the amount of stunt work involved. All departments had to be on their games and the producers had to have a ton of faith in us and in particular the stunt department. I hope it showed!”
    2. “[This week], they just turned the stunt department loose,” Amell said. “It was the shortest script that I’ve ever read because it had such little stage direction in it. It was basically Beth going to James Bamford and saying, ‘This is through line of what happens to Oliver from start to finish. Do what you can in the time that you have. Go.’ There’s some specific stuff like Stanley gets Oliver with a needle and Oliver’s tied up or whatever, but all that choreography, that was something that the stunt department I think really excelled in. We’re not going to get nominated for a stunt Emmy, because we don’t get nominated for a stunt Emmy. But we should get nominated for a stunt Emmy.”

  2. DC Releases Extended Arrowverse Elseworlds Trailer (Date: 25 Nov 2018)
    1. The extended clip shows Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen waking up under Barry Allen’s identity as The Flash with Iris West-Allen unaware of the changes to reality. As the hero regroups with Barry, under his identity as the Green Arrow, and Supergirl, they find a threat that endangers of all the DCTV Multiverse.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrowverse Crossover Heads to Chicago For Gotham City Scenes (Date: 2 Nov 2018)
    1. Production has moved to Chicago, where the city will stand-in for Gotham City. The news came courtesy of producer and former Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim, who shared a couple of pictures from the “Elseworlds” set in Chicago. “If you can’t bring Wayne Enterprises to Vancouver, you bring Vancouver to Wayne Enterprises.” This move is noteworthy considering that, so far, all of the Arrowverse shows have been filming in Vancouver. With Chicago playing the role of Gotham City, it’s become clear that the iconic home of Batman will have an identity of its own on television, one that sets it apart from the likes of Star City, Central City and National City.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrowverse-crossover-chicago-gotham-city/
  2. Stephen Amell Got the Perfect Gift From ‘The Flash’ Wardrobe Department After the “Elseworlds” Crossover (Date: 6 Nov 2018)
    1. In a photo shared to Twitter, Amell revealed that he was given a very special t-shirt poking a little bit of fun at the fact that the actor wore the Flash’s speedster suit for some of the crossover. As you can see in the photo, the shirt reads “My name is Stephen Amell and I have survived the tightest suit alive.” The sentiment is a clever play on the opening of each episode of The Flash in which Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen declares himself to be the fastest man alive.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrowverse Crossover Heads to Chicago For Gotham City Scenes (Date: 2 Nov 2018)
    1. Production has moved to Chicago, where the city will stand-in for Gotham City. The news came courtesy of producer and former Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim, who shared a couple of pictures from the “Elseworlds” set in Chicago. “If you can’t bring Wayne Enterprises to Vancouver, you bring Vancouver to Wayne Enterprises.” This move is noteworthy considering that, so far, all of the Arrowverse shows have been filming in Vancouver. With Chicago playing the role of Gotham City, it’s become clear that the iconic home of Batman will have an identity of its own on television, one that sets it apart from the likes of Star City, Central City and National City.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrowverse-crossover-chicago-gotham-city/
  2. Stephen Amell Got the Perfect Gift From ‘The Flash’ Wardrobe Department After the “Elseworlds” Crossover (Date: 6 Nov 2018)
    1. In a photo shared to Twitter, Amell revealed that he was given a very special t-shirt poking a little bit of fun at the fact that the actor wore the Flash’s speedster suit for some of the crossover. As you can see in the photo, the shirt reads “My name is Stephen Amell and I have survived the tightest suit alive.” The sentiment is a clever play on the opening of each episode of The Flash in which Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen declares himself to be the fastest man alive.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. New John Wesley Shipp As The Flash Photo Revealed For Arrowverse Crossover (Date: 22 Oct 2018)
    1. Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim has shared a new, up-close look at John Wesley Shipp in his role as The Flash from the upcoming “Elseworlds” Arrowverse crossover. While the costume may look nearly identical to the one worn by Shipp during his first go-round as The Flash in 1990 and 1991, Guggenheim credited The Flash costume designer Kate Main with “pulling off this miracle,” developing a costume that looked like the original but presumably did not leave Shipp as miserable as that one did.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow Boss Talks Premiere’s Big Twist, Oliver and Felicity’s Shared Fight (Date: 15 Oct 2018)
    1. Monday’s Arrow season premiere went back to the beginning — and to the future! Through a series of flash-forwards, viewers were introduced to Oliver’s now-adult son William (played by Chasing Life‘s Ben Lewis) as he arrived on Lian Yu. “When you’re on a show for so long, the challenges are trying to tell new stories with your characters,” showrunner Beth Schwartz explains. But the new timeline, which picks up 20 years after the present day, has “just opened up a huge world for us, and the creativity just poured in. Now the stories are endless.” While the future glimpses won’t be included in every episode, they will be present “a lot,” and “all season and series,” reveals Schwartz, who is mum on details about the twist.

  2. Elseworlds Poster Flips the Arrowverse On Its Head (Date: 16 Oct 2018)
    1. The new poster for “Elseworlds,” the CW’s three-night superhero crossover, flips the script of the entire Arrowverse with its depiction of Barry Allen as Green Arrow and Oliver Queen as The Flash.

    3. Parody #1: “Elseworlds” Fan Poster Imagines the Flash as Superman (17 Oct 2018)
      1. Artist Boss Logic posted his latest “Elseworlds” creation to Twitter earlier today imagining Gustin suited up as the Man of Steel with Tyler Hoechlin trying out The Flash suit.

    4. Parody #2: “Elseworlds” Fan Poster Imagines Green Arrow as Supergirl (17 Oct 2018)
      1. Of the various strange costume choices we have seen Stephen Amell take on so far as part of the upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover, there is one dark horse candidate for fan favorite that seems to keep coming up: Supergirl. That’s right, fans are eager to see the ultra-masculine, stubble-chinned Green Arrow actor suit up in a skirt and long hair for the crossover. And while it will almost certainly never happen for real, the magic of Photoshop has made it something that fans can enjoy.

    5. Arrowverse: Elseworlds Features An Unexpected Smallville Connection (18 Oct 2018)
      1. The latest Arrowverse crossover event, titled “Elseworlds,” is currently in the midst of shooting, and we’ve recently been literally swarmed with set pictures. From Superman in a black version of his costume to our first official look at Grimm actress Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane. More pictures later surfaced, revealing that Amell and Gustin were both also on the set of Clark Kent’s Kansas homestead, the exact same farmhouse that was featured in the Tom Welling-starring series, Smallville.

    6. Arrowverse: Barry & Oliver’s Elseworlds Biker Duo Gets a Classic DC Name (Date: 17 Oct 2018)
      1. This year’s Arrowverse crossover has gradually been teasing alternate universe versions of the various heroes of The CW’s shared television universe and a multiversal incarnation of Oliver Queen and Barry Allen have just been named referencing a classic DC Comics duo. Set photos have emerged online as the crossover films in Vancouver the biker versions of the DCTV heroes sporting leather jackets with the name “Trigger Twins” emblazoned across the back. Judging by the set photos, which had originally surfaced yesterday, the DCTV incarnation won’t be siblings at all but rather biker versions of Barry Allen and Oliver Queen. Whether this alternate universe duo still fights crime or are criminals themselves have yet to be seen.
      2. https://www.cbr.com/barry-olivers-elseworlds-biker-duo-classic-dc-name/

GENERAL DC NEWS:

  1. Lex Luthor is Coming to ‘Supergirl’ (Date: 18 Oct 2018)
    1. Superman’s greatest nemesis will come to Supergirl sometime after the crossover; he has not yet even been cast, and will not appear in the event.The addition of Luthor and Lois to Supergirl will likely get fans talking even more than they were before about the possibility of creating a Superman series featuring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch. The odds have never seemed particularly high given the necessary budget, but recent reports that Henry Cavill and Warner Bros. have parted ways and the current Superman film franchise is dead in the water may give the idea of bringing the Man of Steel to television more credence.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow Promotes Kirk Acevedo to Series Regular for Season 7 (Date: 11 Oct 2018)
    1. TVLine has confirmed that Kirk Acevedo, who in Season 6 recurred as Oliver Queen’s adversary, has been promoted to series regular for Season 7. Diaz “is going to come back in a different way than we saw last season,” new Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz promised during our Fall Preview Q&A. “He’s going to be more of the Dragon [character from DC Comics]. We’re going to to see a different side of him I think the fans will be excited about.”

  2. Arrowverse: Batwoman’s Costume Revealed in Official First-Look Photo (Date: 09 Oct 2018)
    1. The CW has unveiled the first official look at Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane in her full Batwoman costume. Created by award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, the super suit draws plenty of inspiration from the comics, from the flowing red wig to the mask to the dramatic cape.With her lips curled in a menacing grimace, Batwoman sports an all-black costume with a red bat symbol and red belt to match her wig. Other hints of red, like the piping on her gauntlets and the ombre fade of her cape, complete the look. Wayne Tower, of course, looms in the background.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. SUPERGIRL Squares Off Against Agent Liberty & Mercy Graves In An Action-Packed New Season 4 Trailer (Date: 10 Oct 2018)
    1. Supergirl is going to have her hands full this season with a pair of new human baddies that may arguably be more dangerous than any of the aliens she’s faced in seasons past: Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) and Mercy Graves (Rhona Mitra). The pair will have a very anti-alien agenda throughout the coming year and are looking to use fear to divide the country and turn it against Kara (Melissa Benoist) and the people she’s sworn to protect, human and alien alike.
