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. 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.

  3. Arrow Season 7 Trailer Introduces the Longbow Hunters (Date: 9 Oct 2018)
    1. Now, thanks to a new trailer for the Season 7 premiere of the series, we know that trouble will come for Oliver and his friends from all sides.  Not only will the former vigilante fight to survive every single day of his stay in prison, but the threat of Ricardo “The Dragon” Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) is still looming over Star City — and he won’t be coming alone.

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.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. ‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Has Shaved His Beard (Date: 28 Sept 2018)
    1. Amell just shared a side-by-side image of himself from an Arrow behind-the-scenes still and another one that was apparently taken today and presumably off-set. With the caption “Wednesday/Thursday,” the biggest difference between the two is that Amell’s beard is gone in the Thursday image. During a recent interview, Amell told ComicBook.com that when the beard was no longer absolutely essential for the show’s storytelling, he would shave down to a goatee and see how it looked — but that he would not keep it if it would not look good on camera. It appears as though either he decided it did not look good on camera, or maybe the story called for him to more fully shave than he had anticipated.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

  1. ‘Constantine: The Legend Continues’ Animated Movie to Air in October (Date: 27 Sept 2018)
    1. The CW has revealed the Constantine: The Legend Continues, the animated series created for CW Seed and starring DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Matt Ryan in his role as John Constantine, will air on the network in October. Following the movie’s broadcast debut, cast and producers from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will discuss the upcoming season and give fans a sneak peek at season four, which will debut the following week. Constantine: The Legend Continues will air on Monday, October 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

  2. DC TV Watch: ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Showrunner Breaks Down All the Season 4 Changes (Date: 29 Sept 2018)
    • . Hollywood Reporter interviewed executive producer Phil Klemmer about Legends season 4.
  1. Larger theme: In the cases-of-the-week, the Legends (and audience) will discover that everything they think they know about magical creatures and monsters is wrong. “We are far more interested in finding a nuance in these monsters and turning myths and legends on their heads,” Klemmer adds. “We are finding out what fairytales got wrong about various magical creatures and monsters. Some of the ones that are supposed to be magical are murderous and vice versa.”
  2. The crossover: “I don’t know how that will work. There’s already a loose shape for it even though this year’s crossover isn’t done by a long shot. I was happy to have sit this year out just because we only have 16 and our run of episodes was so tight and integrated. It’s always a blast but it is a departure. I’m glad we got to do a straight run this year.”
  3. The future: “We virtually change genres over the course of four seasons but the one-hour comedy is something I have always loved doing and the fact that this show organically turned into one really surprised me. Maybe we’ll go back to being a hard-core, super serious, straight CBS procedural by the time we get to season six. Nobody is making demands of us, nobody is saying no to us, studio or network, so we’re willfully wacky, odd and out-of-step with everything else on TV.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow Season 7 Trailer Reveals There Aren’t Any Heroes in Prison (Date: 19 Sept 2018)
    1. After outing himself as the Green Arrow at the end of last season, Oliver Queen is behind bars, surrounded by enemies he has put away in the past and inmates who want to earn a name by beating him down. Someone has been running around in a Green Arrow costume, attacking people. The members of Team Arrow are powerless to stop him if they want to maintain their secret identities. And, of course, Ricardo Diaz is coming back to town with an eye on payback and making sure Oliver pays for defeating him last season.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrow-season-7-trailer-heroes-in-prison/
  2. Arrow Season 7: Shadowhunters’ Katherine McNamara Joins Cast (Date: 21 Sept 2018)
    1. TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress is joining Arrow in a pivotal recurring role. According to sources, McNamara will appear during the first half of Season 7 as Maya, a scrappy street fighter and thief from Star City. The initial — and unofficial — casting notice for the character likened the character to “Buffy the Superhero Slayer.”
    2. https://tvline.com/2018/09/21/katherine-mcnamara-arrow-season-7-cast-maya/
  3. Arrowverse Finds Its Lois Lane in Grimm Star (Date: 14 Sept 2018)
    1. The CW has cast Grimm star Elizabeth Tulloch to play the Daily Planet ace reporter in this December’s three-show crossover between Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow. Previously, Tulloch played Juliette Silverton/Eve across all six seasons of Grimm. Her past credits also include Portlandia, The West Wing, The Artist, Parkland, Concussion and more.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrowverse-lois-lane-elizabeth-tulloch/
  4. Arrowverse Casting Confirms Gotham City as Crossover Location (Date: 20 Sept 2018)
    1. Lost and Justified veteran Jeremy Davies will play Dr. John Deegan, a doctor at the notorious Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane, whose machinations draw Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl to Gotham. Although Gotham, the traditional stomping grounds of Batman, has been referenced on Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, this will be the first time it’s actually shown on the Arrowverse dramas. Fans are still left to wonder whether this is the Gotham on Earth One, home of Green Arrow and The Flash, or Earth-38, inhabited by Supergirl. While the introduction in the crossover of Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose, led to speculation that Gotham might finally make its debut — the city is even referenced in the character description — this is the first confirmation.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrowverse-crossover-gotham-city/
  5. Arrowverse Crossover Adds Cassandra Jean Amell as Nora Fries (Date: 14 Sept 2018)
    1. The CW has just cast Cassandra Jean Amell (yes, the wife of Arrow star Stephen) in the role of Nora Fries. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Nora is the wife of Victor Fries, also known as the Batman villain Mister Freeze. No details were provided as to whether Amell’s version of the character will be alive and well or in cryostasis at the time of her introduction. The customary character description was not provided, either, leaving the nature of her role (and presumably her husband’s) a mystery.

  6. Arrowverse Crossover Casts The Monitor, Hints Elseworlds Will Be a Crisis (Date: 26 Sept 2018)
    1. The CW announced Designated Survivor star LaMonica Garrett has been cast as Mar Novu, “an extraterrestrial being of infinite power known as the Monitor,” in the Arrowverse’s upcoming Elseworlds crossover. In the comics, the Monitor was essential to Crisis on Infinite Earths. Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez in 1982’s The New Teen Titans #21, the character was established to set up the events of Crisis. He is billions of years old, born as the living embodiment of the universe’s positive matter; as such, he is the natural enemy of the Anti-Monitor, a being of anti-matter. The highly-anticipated crossover will air over three nights, starting on Sunday, Dec. 9 through Tuesday, Dec. 11.

  7. Stephen Amell’s First Arrowverse Crossover BTS Photo Teases New Costume (Date: 14 Sept 2018)
    1. The big Arrowverse crossover can’t get here soon enough, and a new behind the scenes photo from Stephen Amell reveals he might be getting a new costume for it. The new photo shows Amell in the makeup chair, but he is sporting some bright green gel on his chest, neck, and face. It seems he is getting fitted for a mold, so now the question is what the new mask and suit will look like. He posted it with the caption “Officially started work on the crossover today.”

    1. The trailer starts off with John Constantine (Matt Ryan) telling White Canary (Caity Lotz) to get ready for a new fight because “the darkness… it’s rising,” which transitions into shots of what appear to be the Salem witch trials. The trailer then reveals that the team’s composition will be changing. There’s also fan-favorite Time Bureau Agent Gary Green (Adam Tsekhman) naked and claiming he’s an “intern Legend,” a fairy godmother and a unicorn shooting a rainbow mist from its horn.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/legends-of-tomorrow-more-misfits-trailer/
  2. Dominic Purcell Defends ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ as Not Being the Joke of the Arrowverse (Date: 22 Sept 2018)
    1. Purcell, who plays Mick Rory/Heatwave on the series which will debut its fourth season next month, took to Instagram on Saturday, sharing why he’s proud to be part of Legends as well as why he’s no longer accepting the show being treated like a “joke”.
    2. “First season of @cw_legendsoftomorrow sucked,” Purcell wrote. “We had to change it drastically. The writers, the creative team changed its course with a genius master stroke. Let’s have fun with it!!!! ….Now we have a show that embraces the absurdity of the farce and the brilliant nature of its theme.”
    3. “No longer will I accept this [slight] utterance that Legends is the in house joke that we are the ugly step sister in the @dccomics @warnerbrostv #arrowverse tv sh*t,” Purcell wrote. “I know for a fact we are not seen as that within the corporate structure. So shut the f*ck up. We good. We handling our sh*t, we good. We family. We delivering.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow: Felicity Sports a Drastic New Look in Season 7 Photos (Date: 11 Sept 2018)
    1. The photos show her visiting Oliver in prison. In them, she sports a new look: pink hair, a lip ring, a nose ring and no glasses. On top of that, it seems Felicity will be facing a few trials of her own. Most of the images see her with a visible injury on her head. With the world knowing that her husband is the Green Arrow, it’s possible she could be the target of more than a few supervillains.

  2. Arrow Season 7 Promo Teases Prison Shower Fight Scene (Date: 13 Sept 2018)
    1. Judging by the latest promo for the seventh season of Arrow, Oliver Queen isn’t even going to be able to shower in peace. In a short, looped clip from the upcoming season of The CW’s inaugural DCTV series, Ollie is attacked by several assailants in shower to the maximum security prison where he’s being held, dispatching his opponents with hard-hitting intensity.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

  1. ‘Walking Dead’ Baddie Xander Berkeley Brings Daddy Issues to ‘Supergirl’ Season 4 (Date: 13 Sept 2018)
    1. We already know that the anti-alien sentiment heading to Supergirl this season will be led by Sam Witwer’s Ben Lockwood, aka Agent Liberty. But who formed the mind of this humans-first hate-monger? Looks like the apple may not have fallen too far from bigo-tree (get it?). TV Insider has learned exclusively that Xander Berkeley, who currently stars as Hilltop jerk Gregory on The Walking Dead, has been tapped to play Ben’s father, Peter Lockwood. Peter is said to be “a middle-class factory owner struggling to make ends meet in a world that’s rapidly changing due to the rise of aliens from outer space living amongst us,” per the casting news. The release goes on to explain that he’s “proud and single-minded, a family man who’s dedicated his life providing for people. The seeds of his discontent sows the beginning of an anti-alien wave.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Fall TV Spoilers 2018: Scoop on 40 Returning Favorites (Date: 6 Sept 2018)
    1. What excites new showrunner Beth Schwartz most about having Oliver behind bars, shoulder-to-shoulder with many of the baddies he bested in the past, is “they’re all on the same playing field.” But wanting to be a model inmate and not make waves, Oliver will need to “make different moral choices because of the position he’s in.” Of course, since Oliver is the one who brokered the deal that traded his freedom for the feds’ help against Diaz — keeping wife Felicity in the dark — “He’s going to learn that might not have been the best idea!” says Schwartz. On the villain front, Diaz will resurface as “more of the Dragon” comic book character he’s based on, while the Longbow Hunters — an almost mythical band of assassins — will prove they are “in fact quite real.” As for Colton Haynes’ return as a series regular, Schwartz will only affirm that he is “definitely” playing the Earth-One Roy Harper that we know and Thea loves (loved?). BONUS SPOILER!: Know how we previously reported that Felicity is coping the worst in the wake of Oliver’s imprisonment? Well, guess who is faring the best? “I would say Laurel,” Schwartz shares, confirming that the team’s Earth-Two frenemy is now Star City’s DA.

  1. Fall TV Spoilers 2018: Scoop on 40 Returning Favorites (Date: 06 Sept 2018)
    1. DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Yep, in vanquishing Mallus, the Legends did what they do best — “created a new problem,” says EP Keto Shimizu — by opening our world to hobgoblins from “a broad spectrum” of “myth, legend and fairy tale,” and now the mission is to “hunt ’em down and bag ’em up!” Alas, this new wrinkle arrives just as Sara is “finally starting to have a life” (with girlfriend Ava included), Caity Lotz notes, “and all of that gets jeopardized pretty quickly.” And though Amaya bid the team adieu in the finale, Maisie Richardson-Sellers is back as “a mythical fugitive” who will keep the Legends guessing as to whether she is friend or fiend. Similarly, now that Courtney Ford is a series regular, Nora Dahrk is poised to segue into a “complicated ally.” Lastly, with Nate parked in 2018 to tend to a “very real story” involving his dad (Back to the Future’s Tom Wilson), that frees up a bunk for Constantine. And free he will be! “He doesn’t like to wear a lot of clothing going to and from the shower…,” EP Phil Klemmer previews. BONUS SPOILER!: A former Legend will be returning in an unexpected form to try and kill the team.

  2. Fall TV Spoilers 2018: Scoop on 40 Returning Favorites (Date: 06 Sept 2018)
    1. THE FLASH New Big Bad Cicada (American Pie‘s Chris Klein) isn’t too concerned with the Scarlet Speedster – “His endgame isn’t about The Flash. It’s more of a bigger-scale issue,” executive producer Todd Helbing notes – but he will impact Barry & Co. “A big part of the story of this season [is about] the metas, where they got their powers from, and it’s tied into everybody’s journey this year,” the EP shares. “Cicada’s powers are different than DeVoe’s [and] any of the speedsters in the way they affect our team.” Elsewhere, Nora’s presence “starts to have a little strain” on her parents’ relationship. “Iris and Barry become second to Mom and Dad,” Helbing explains. Meanwhile, Cisco is having a difficult time getting over his break-up with Gypsy, Caitlin searches for her Killer Frost origins and Ralph struggles to earn the respect of the city as a superhero. BONUS SPOILER!: The newest Wells, Sherloque, is “a master detective from a different earth,” Helbing describes, “and he’s come to help [the team] track down Cicada. He’s pretty awesome at his job, and Ralph doesn’t take too kindly to somebody that has skills that may or may not be better than his.” Plus, Sherloque will get a lady love!

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Fall TV Spoilers 2018: Scoop on 40 Returning Favorites (Date: 6 Sept 2018)
    1. What excites new showrunner Beth Schwartz most about having Oliver behind bars, shoulder-to-shoulder with many of the baddies he bested in the past, is “they’re all on the same playing field.” But wanting to be a model inmate and not make waves, Oliver will need to “make different moral choices because of the position he’s in.” Of course, since Oliver is the one who brokered the deal that traded his freedom for the feds’ help against Diaz — keeping wife Felicity in the dark — “He’s going to learn that might not have been the best idea!” says Schwartz. On the villain front, Diaz will resurface as “more of the Dragon” comic book character he’s based on, while the Longbow Hunters — an almost mythical band of assassins — will prove they are “in fact quite real.” As for Colton Haynes’ return as a series regular, Schwartz will only affirm that he is “definitely” playing the Earth-One Roy Harper that we know and Thea loves (loved?). BONUS SPOILER!: Know how we previously reported that Felicity is coping the worst in the wake of Oliver’s imprisonment? Well, guess who is faring the best? “I would say Laurel,” Schwartz shares, confirming that the team’s Earth-Two frenemy is now Star City’s DA.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow’s New Showrunner Says Season 7 Has A Very Specific Theme (Date: 29 Aug 2018)
    1. According to Beth Schwartz, The CW series’ new showrunner, the former Star City Mayor will need to redeem himself in the eyes of the city he spent seven years defending as the Green Arrow. “The theme for Season 7 is redemption. As you’ll see, since last season when Oliver outed his identity, the city is a little bit mixed about how they feel about the Green Arrow,” she revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego. “So his whole season is about redemption, and all the characters will touch on that as well.”

  2. ARROWVERSE Crossover Character Breakdown Reveals Details On The Latest Incarnation Of Lois Lane (Date: 28 Aug 2018)
    1. It sounds like The CW will be sticking fairly close to the classic interpretations of Superman’s iconic love-interest. “The show is looking to cast a Caucasian woman in her early 30s as Lois Lane. Described as the daughter of US General Sam Lane, Lois is a tenacious, righteous and stubborn reporter who will go to any length to get the story and almost never fails. The breakdown reveals that she will appear in The Flash and Supergirl episodes of the crossover event, meaning that the Arrow portion won’t feature her.”

James said he and the newly-promoted showrunner Beth Schwartz have intense plans for this fall that led them to having a meeting with the networko’s censors. “Beth and I had a phone call with BNSP, which is our censors… a very lengthy phone call about a particular scene that we never had before. So we are really trying to push the limits on the show in the gritty factor,” Bamford revealed. “We are trying to go as far as you can go within the confines of our network and what is expected of us and what we can and can’t do. We are not on Netflix so we will never be able to X, Y, and Z, but we are damn sure going to try.”

Despite its intelligence, the Wolf Creature tends to look at things through black and white while also lacking social skills. His/her relationship with the Legends will be quite an uneasy one. The Wolf Creature tends to be loyal to those that they consider their tribe. They can also be impulsive and act quite selfishly from time to time, but that’s because of their natural animal instincts. They transform into this Wolf Creature when they are angry or experiencing emotional pain or turmoil.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. The Flash Season 5 Trailer Adds a New Speedster to the Team (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. The trailer begins by recapping the events from the Season 4 finale, where Nora helped Barry stop a satellite from crashing into Central City to her surprise identity reveal. Next, we learn Nora’s superhero name is XS, which is a nickname Barry gave her as a kid. Somehow, Nora has gotten herself stuck in the present-day, and Barry is concerned she could “Marty Mcfly herself out of existence.”

  2. The Flash Casts Chris Klein As Season 5’s Big Villain (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Chris Klein, known for his roles in Election and American Pie, will play the primary antagonist in the upcoming fifth season of The Flash. The actor will portray Central City’s newest menace, the DC supervillain Cicada. Introduced in 2001 by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins in The Flash #170, the Cicada of the comics is David Hersch who was filled with regret after murdering his wife when he was struck by lightning. As a result, he gained the ability to absorb the life-force of others, allowing him to dramatically extend his life. Believing he was somehow linked to The Flash by the similar accidents in which they gained their powers, Hersch founded a cult whose members were dedicated to murdering everyone the Scarlet Speedster ever saved, using lightning bolt-shaped daggers. As the result of a vision, Hersch believed that the energy from all the people The Flash saved, and from the hero himself, would allow him to resurrect his dead wife.

The CW’s Supergirl has cast transgender activist Nicole Maines as television’s first trans superhero, in a role that appears to introduce another member of DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes to the drama.

    1. The CW’s Supergirl will borrow again from the Man of Steel’s sprawling supporting cast to introduce DC antihero/villain Manchester Black in Season 4. David Ajala (Doctor Who, The Dark Knight) has been cast in a recurring role as “the type of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight and still walks away the winner. With a dark past, he easily deflects the brutality of his mission with his charm and sense of humor.”

    1. Brent Spiner, beloved for his roles on Star Trek: The Next Generation and in Independence Day, has joined the upcoming fourth season of The CW’s Supergirl in a recurring role. He’ll play the “adept and politically minded” Vice President Baker, described as an unlikely leader who “steps up in a big way when his country needs him most.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/supergirl-brent-spiner-season-4/
  7. Supergirl Adds Superman Mythos’ Otis, Villain Mercy Graves for S4 (Date: 28 July 2018)
    1. The CW’s Supergirl is set to welcome some new villainous players to National City. The DC villain Mercy Graves is coming on-board the series… and she won’t be coming alone: she’ll be bringing her brother Otis along with her. Rohna Mitra has been cast in the recurring role of Mercy Graves. On Supergirl, Mercy will be “stepping out of the Luthor shadow and running her own show,” according to the character description. “With her biting wit and lethal brawn, Mercy steadily becomes a key figure in National City’s growing ‘human-first’ movement.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/supergirl-season-4-mercy-graves-otis/
  8. Kevin Smith to Direct ‘Supergirl’ Season 4 Episode (Date: 29 July 2018)

A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow’s SDCC Trailer Give Us the Prison Shower Fight We Never Knew We Wanted (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Now referred to as Prisoner 4587, Oliver is counting down the days by leaving marks on his prison wall, while also keeping his body in fighting shape. One quick scene also shows Oliver with The Count of Monte Cristo, along with a photo of Felicity and his son, William. Thanks to Diggle, we find out Oliver has been locked up for five months with the likes of Derek Sampson (independent wrestler Cody Rhodes). Being among criminals looking for revenge leads to an epic beatdown delivered by Oliver –right in the middle of the shower stalls. From there, we learn Star City has implemented a zero tolerance policy on all vigilantism.

  2. SDCC: Arrow Cast & Crew Declassify Season 7 (Date: 21 July 2018)
  3. Highlights from the SDCC panel
  4. “The good thing is Roy is coming back,” Haynes shared. “He’s not the same person. It’s going to be very, very interesting. That’s all I can say. Beth did — she’s a genius, so she wrote me a version of the character that just was so special. It’s going to be hard for me to do, but I’m going to be happy to do it. I’m so excited to come back.”
  5. As to the crossover, Schwartz said, “We’re still working on the first half of the season, so we haven’t gotten to the crossover.”
  6. Amell: “The coolest thing about the premiere for me is… there’s nothing about him that’s heroic at all. If you’re a fan of the character and you root for the character, I really hope the premiere pisses you off,” he added. “I really enjoy it. There’s one scene in particular in the premiere where what Oliver does is reprehensible.”
  7. A young fan asked if Oliver and Felicity would ever have a child of their own. “No babies this year!” Schwartz said, ending the panel.

  10. Arrow Casts a New Age of DC Heroes Character for Season 7 (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. The CW announced at Comic-Con International that Silencer will be joining the cast of Arrow as a member of the previously teased team of Longbow Hunters, a trio of villains described as “more lethal than any the team has faced.” Silencer, along with Red Dart and Kodiak, will gather at the behest of Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) in an attempt by Season 6’s big villain to take out Oliver Queen and his team once and for all. Played by Miranda Edwards (The Magicians, Orphan Black) Silencer is described as “a master of stealth,” which, depending on how close the character hews to her comic book incarnation, may be a massive understatement.

  2. ‘Legends of Tomorrow’: Maisie Richardson-Sellers’ Role in Season 4 Revealed (Date: 21 July 2018)

Charlie is British, and described as a “rebel without a cause” with ties to the mysterious portal of magic that the Legends opened. Apparently, the Legends stumble upon her and are unsure if she’s a friend or foe. Either way, she will definitely shake up the ship again.

  3. Rip Hunter Won’t Return in ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 (Date: 23 July 2018)
    1. Arrowverse executive producer Marc Guggenheim has already left the door open, stating that Rip could indeed return… someday: “We love Arthur, we love having Arthur on the show, and I think Arthur enjoys being on the show. Because it’s a time travel show, and because we never saw a body, anything is possible. I think Arthur is totally willing to come back and play with us if we have a cool idea.”

  1. Why Legends of Tomorrow Isn’t Part of This Year’s Arrowverse Crossover (Date: 23 July 2018)
    1. Executive producer Keto Shimizu explained, “Tonally, we are so different from those other shows at this point, it’s hard to jump back into that world with the other Arrowverse shows. And we did it last year and it was of course this gargantuan production and pre-production. For four shows to do that again and to try and make it bigger than last time, I just don’t think it’s possible. I think the crossovers are going to be a lot different in general than what we’ve seen.”

  2. Legends of Tomorrow Welcomes an All-Star Squadron Member in Season 4 (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Alaska You is the first to join the show.
