GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Exclusive: Nicolas Cage plays Superman, Halsey is Wonder Woman in ‘Teen Titans GO!’ (Date: 12 March 2018)
    1. Nicolas Cage is voicing A-list comic-book icon Superman, singer/songwriter Halsey co-stars as Amazon princess Wonder Woman — who travels around in her signature invisible jet — and rapper Lil Yachty plays Green Lantern in the upcoming animated movie (in theaters July 27) that takes the young heroes of the Cartoon Network show Teen Titans GO! to the big screen.

  2. Ava DuVernay to Direct DC’s ‘New Gods’ (Date: 15 March 2018)
    1. A Wrinkle in Time filmmaker Ava DuVernay will finally make her superhero debut…with an adaptation of Jack Kirby’s epic The New Gods, Deadline reports. Set after Ragnarok and the birth of a new generation of gods, The New Gods was part of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World cycle of storytelling, along with Mister Miracle and The Forever People. The story pits the evil gods of Apokolips, led by Darkseid, against the bright and idealistic gods of New Genesis, led by Highfather. Mister Miracle is the son of Highfather, who was raised on Apokolips as a kind of mutually-assured destruction pact with Darkseid, who sent his son Orion to be raised on New Genesis. Miracle is perhaps the most marketable of all of the New Gods characters, along with his wife, Big Barda, and Orion himself.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. ‘Arrow’s Roy Harper Arc Will Take a One Week Break (Date: 22 Feb 2018)
    1. On Thursday, March 15th, The CW will not be airing a new episode of Arrow, and will instead be re-airing the episode “All For Nothing”. This brief programming change is largely due to what’s airing before Arrow, with Supernatural being replaced by a one-hour special titled “Tough Mudder: Tougher Together”. This means that “The Thanatos Guild”, the sixteenth episode of this season, will presumably be airing a week later, on March 22nd. While details on this episode are scarce, we know that it will be part of Roy’s short multi-episode arc, which is expected to have a major effect on one Arrow mainstay. And if that wasn’t enough, the episode will also feature the return appearance of Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law), who was last seen in the season five finale.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Jonah Hex Confirmed for ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 3 Finale (Date: 20 Feb 2018)
    1. Jonah Hex (Johnathon Schaech) will return to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for its season 3 finale, ComicBook.com has confirmed. Warner Bros. Television confirmed the speculation, but had no comment as to what role Hex might play in the episode.
    2. http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/02/20/jonah-hex-confirmed-for-legends-of-tomorrow-season-3-finale/

 

  1. Chris The Flash’s Violett Beane to appear on Legends of Tomorrow (Date: 21 Feb 2018)
    1. The Flash‘s Violett Beane, a.k.a. Jesse Quick, will make an appearance in the 15th episode of Legends of Tomorrow, EW has learned. Details on what brings her to the Waverider are being kept under wraps, but the episode in question is titled “Necromancing the Stone.” Her arrival comes on the heels of Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) joining the Legends — he briefly appeared at the close of Monday’s episode as Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) set out to recruit him. Beane will also return to The Flash in the Tuesday, March 6 episode, teaming up with the Scarlet Speedster and Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) to stop a nuclear bomb from destroying Central City.
    2. http://ew.com/tv/2018/02/21/flash-violett-beane-legends-of-tomorrow/

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow: John Noble will actually appear — but there’s a twist! (Date: 19 Feb 2018)
    1. EW has learned exclusively that the actor, who has been voicing this season’s big bad Mallus, will appear as himself in an upcoming episode of Legends. Yes, as himself. Seriously. As EW previously revealed, the time demon Mallus will be an entirely CG creation, hence Noble appearing in a different capacity.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow boss teases team’s new additions (and subtractions)(Date: 09 Feb 2018)
    1. Entertainment Weekly spoke to executive producer Marc Guggenheim to get the scoop on Legends of Tomorrow. Mallus will be a fully CG character. Wally kind of feels like he doesn’t fit in anywhere, and he is basically brought to the team by Rip Hunter — so you will definitely see him back — and once Wally meets the Legends, he decides this is a really good group to stay with. Snart does leave the team, but he is not dying.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow adds Keiynan Lonsdale as series regular (Date: 19 Jan 2018)
    1. Welcome to the Waverider, Kid Flash! Following the departure of Franz Drameh and Victor Garber, Keiynan Lonsdale has joined the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as a series regular, EW has learned. Executive producer Phil Klemmer said in a statement, “We loved working with Keiynan in our series premiere — the episode in which we learned that in between seasons 2 and 3 he had been fighting crime in Central City with Nick Zano’s Nate Heywood. So when his character stepped away from Flash to go on walkabout, after being dumped and feeling somewhat estranged from his family and team, we knew that Wally West would fit in perfectly on Legends. After all, our show is about a collection of unlikely heroes who all began their journeys questioning who they are and where they belong — only to find those answers while traveling through time and having wacky adventures. So now, Wally West is not only back in the company of old friends from the Arrowverse, he’s fighting alongside a former enemy and career arsonist Mick Rory/Dom Purcell. By the end of this season, Wally will learn that the Legends have a different definition of what it means to be a hero.”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Katrina Law Returns to ‘Arrow’ (EXCLUSIVE) (Date: 25 Jan 2018)
    1. Nyssa Al Ghul is headed back to Star City. Katrina Law is returning to “Arrow” for a single episode later this year. Executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim said. “In an unforgettable episode that will change ‘Arrow’ forever, Katrina Law returns as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa Al Ghul. Nyssa comes to Star City to warn of an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love.”

  2. TV Ratings: ‘Supernatural’ Delivers on Thursday Night, ‘Arrow’ Falls (Date: 26 Jan 2018)
    1. At 9 o’clock  Arrow on The CW struggled once again. With 1.39 million viewers, the show slipped to a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, matching its non-Thanksgiving series low. Part of what caused the struggle for Arrow is the crowded Thursday night block across every network. ABC’s Scandal (5.2 mil/1.3). NBC has its all-star night of comedy. Will & Grace (2.56 mil) and Great News (2.19 mil). [Michelle’s Notes: Project Runway All Stars is at 9PM]

  1. CW Won’t Air More Than 4 Superhero Shows At One Time (Date: 24 Jan 2018)
    1. The CW has taken its own steps in hopes of staving off audience exhaustion: limiting the number of superhero dramas that air at one time to four. The CW has The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and, just this month, Black Lighting. However, the Arrowverse programming block hasn’t been bulletproof in the ratings, which have dipped 7.5 percent this season (although numbers are said to be flat with last season when streaming and DVR audiences are taken into account). That said, however, he doesn’t foresee the current demand for superheroes coming to an end soon. “The audience will tell you when the fatigue has set in,” Pedowitz said. “If you have a quality show or a fun show, the audience will stay with it.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/cw-tv-4-superhero-shows/
  2. ‘Riverdale,’ ‘The Flash,’ and ‘Arrow’ Take a Week Off in Mid-February (Date: 26 Jan 2018)
    1. The same week Supergirl begins a hiatus to make way for the return of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, numerous other comic book shows on The CW are taking a break. The Flash, Riverdale, and Arrow will all be taking a week off starting the week of February 12th, leaving Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning to pick up a fair amount of slack (along with the season finale of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend). There is no official word when the shows will return, although it seems likely that they will return either the next week or following a short hiatus. Breaks of one to three weeks are common for each of the three shows, either to accommodate scheduling on The CW or to get ahead on post-production.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow adds Keiynan Lonsdale as series regular (Date: 19 Jan 2018)
    1. Welcome to the Waverider, Kid Flash! Following the departure of Franz Drameh and Victor Garber, Keiynan Lonsdale has joined the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as a series regular, EW has learned. Executive producer Phil Klemmer said in a statement, “We loved working with Keiynan in our series premiere — the episode in which we learned that in between seasons 2 and 3 he had been fighting crime in Central City with Nick Zano’s Nate Heywood. So when his character stepped away from Flash to go on walkabout, after being dumped and feeling somewhat estranged from his family and team, we knew that Wally West would fit in perfectly on Legends. After all, our show is about a collection of unlikely heroes who all began their journeys questioning who they are and where they belong — only to find those answers while traveling through time and having wacky adventures. So now, Wally West is not only back in the company of old friends from the Arrowverse, he’s fighting alongside a former enemy and career arsonist Mick Rory/Dom Purcell. By the end of this season, Wally will learn that the Legends have a different definition of what it means to be a hero.”

  2. The Flash: Elongated Man’s Super Costume Revealed in New Photo (Date: 17 Jan 2018)
    1. In the photo, Dibney sports a burgundy jacket with white accents. The jacket has a gauge on the left shoulder, not unlike the one worn by Firestorm. He also wears a pair of goggles, with black eye makeup underneath to obscure his face so that he won’t be easily recognizable. The costume is likely of Cisco’s design, since it will have to stretch and conform to Dibney’s metahuman abilities.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Action-Packed Arrow Trailer Leaves Star City Ripe for a Takeover (Date: 17 Jan 2018)
    1. The trailer opens with a major, if not surprising, reveal: James is now in control of the city’s entire infrastructure, which enables him to shut down all forms of communication. In the promo, Dinah Drake, Curtis Holt and Rene Ramirez go on to form their own super team. However, this quickly leads to strife with Oliver’s original team, who stands by his side. In addition to fighting James’ team, Oliver will ultimately come to blows with his former recruits. The teaser also contains a few other surprising reveals, such as Oliver’s daring rescue of his son William and William’s trip to the bunker.

  1. CW boss ‘optimistic’ that Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, and Legends will return (Date: 07 Jan 2018)
    1. Network president Mark Pedowitz is “optimistic” that Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return next season, he told EW at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour Sunday. “At the moment, it’s a little too soon. We’re noted for announcing at winter TCA that we’re picking up shows, we just weren’t ready to do that yet. A couple more weeks [and] we’ll probably get around to it. I’m pretty confident we’ll see them all back.”

  1. Could The Huntress Return?(Date: 19 Jan 2018)
    1. When Oliver asked why Jerry couldn’t just ask his cousin, Helena Bertinelli/Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) for help, Jerry remarked that she’d “gone underground.” “I want to say, ‘Absolutely,'” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said about Huntress’ potential return. “Jessica De Gouw has expressed an absolute willingness to come back. Jessica’s a favorite actor of mine, and the Huntress is a favorite character of mine. I want to make it happen in Season 6. We’ve got some plans for the later half of the year that I think she will fit into really well, so we’ll see.”

  2. The Flash: Elongated Man’s Super Costume Revealed in New Photo (Date: 17 Jan 2018)
    1. In the photo, Dibney sports a burgundy jacket with white accents. The jacket has a gauge on the left shoulder, not unlike the one worn by Firestorm. He also wears a pair of goggles, with black eye makeup underneath to obscure his face so that he won’t be easily recognizable. The costume is likely of Cisco’s design, since it will have to stretch and conform to Dibney’s metahuman abilities.

  2. Arrow’s Echo Kellum Talks The Importance of Black Superheroes (Date: 18 Jan 2018)
    1. “I think for myself and for Curtis, it is something we’re both very proud of,” Kellum told ComicBook.com. “I’m so proud and I feel so fortunate to get to portray a hero like this, an inclusive hero, you know, part of the LGBT community, a person of color who’s a person of, you know, endless optimism and positivity. And it’s a role that I love to play and as far as Curtis, I know he takes a lot of pride in that, too, you know? “I personally, I feel like, you know, what a time to be alive where, you know, I get to see so many people, I can be on TV, I get to portray that,” he said. “I get to help people of color, people of the LGBTQIA community so like they can do it too. And for me, that was so important growing up”
