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. http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/arrow-katrina-law-nyssa-al-ghul-1202675995/
  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.”

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.”

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 Cast and Crew Interviews:

 

  1. Arrow’s Echo Kellum Reveals Why the Stakes Are Higher Than Ever Before (Date: 18 Jan 2018)
    1. Speaking to CBR, Mr. Terrific himself Echo Kellum offered some insight into how Team Arrow’s big split will affect his character moving forward. Fortunately for fans, the divide won’t impact Curtis’ happy-go-lucky attitude, though it will bring a lot of conflict into his relationship with his business partner Felicity Smoak. Kellum also teased his favorite scene from the midseason premiere, shared his hopes for Curtis’ love life and explained why Cayden James’ supervillain team will raise the stakes like never before.
    2. https://www.cbr.com/arrow-echo-kellum-divided-interview/
  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”

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Here’s How Much The ‘Arrow’ Costume Costs ToMake (Date: 10 Dec 2017) 
  2. During a recent panel at ACE Comic Con Long Island, Arrowshowrunner Marc Guggenheim was asked just how much it costs to produce Oliver Queen/Green Arrow’s (Stephen Amell) costume. As he revealed, each new version of the suit costs around $5,000. The topic of Arrowverse costumes – and their price tag – have come up quite a bit in recent years. Most notably, Ray Palmer/The Atom’s mech suit seems to be the most expensive, with a 2015 report saying that it costs $189,000. Legends executive producer Phil Klemmer said, “The only challenge is how expensive his costume costs, and the danger that we actually injure him doing stunts, because his costume actually costs not just more than a car — more than, like, your average American home. “So the scariest thing about Atom is I’m thinking, like, ‘When do you use a digital double, and when do you use Brandon?'”

  1. ‘Arrow’ Showrunner Says Both Booster Gold and Blue Beetle Have Been Talked About (Date: 09 Dec 2017)
  2. During the DCTV panel at ACE Comic Con in Long Island this weekend, a fan asked if Blue Bettle and Booster Gold had ever been considered, especially since Kord Industries has been mentioned multiple times and it turns out, they have. “I will say, both those characters [Booster Gold and Blue Beetle] are characters we’ve talked about,” Guggenheim said. “Originally Ray Palmer, who was introduced on Arrow, he was supposed to be Ted Kord and we went another way. So, you know, Booster and Blue Beetle, all the ‘B’ characters really, we’re always talking about but nothing I can announce or speak to at the moment.” Of course, Blue Bettle and Booster Gold aren’t the only characters Guggenheim has considered bringing into the Arrowverse. Guggenheim said earlier in his panel that he would really like to see The Question appear on Arrow.

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow loses another team member (Date: 05 Dec 2017)
  2. It should come as no surprise that just one episode after the death of Stein, Jax has decided to leave the Waverider — and EW can confirm that Franz Drameh has exited DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Though Jax will no longer be a regular face on the Waverider as a Legend, the door is open for the character to pop up again in the future. 
  3. http://ew.com/tv/2017/12/05/legends-of-tomorrow-franz-drameh-exit/

 

  1. Supergirl to Turn Monday Time Slot Over to Legends for 9 Weeks (Date: 08 Dec 2017)
  2. The CW has announced that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will thus resume Season 3 on Monday, Feb. 12 at 8 pm, where it will finish up its season with nine straight episodes (landing its finale on April 9). Supergirl will then swoop back into its Monday home starting April 16, and air new episodes straight through to its own Season 3 finale, which will now air outside of May sweeps (on June 18). All told, that adds up to 23 straight weeks of original Supergirl/Legends/Supergirl episodes airing in The CW’s Mondays-at-8 time slot. 
  3. http://tvline.com/2017/12/08/legends-of-tomorrow-season-3-return-date-supergirl-time-slot-mondays/

 

  1. Exclusive: Current ‘Arrowverse’ Character to Replace Firestorm on ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ (Date: 08 Dec 2017)
  2. According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, “a previously established character from the Arrowverse” will be stepping in to replace Firestorm on Legends. “We do have a plan for how to replace Firestorm on the bridge, and it’s a really cool one. It’s one we’re really excited about.” Guggenheim continued, “There’s really like two empty chairs on the Waverider. So we do have a game plan. We’ve always had a game plan. I just can’t talk about the game plan. The CW publicity will determine when we get to unleash that bit of news.” One strong possibility fans are hoping for is Matt Ryan’s Constantine. Another popular option amongst fans would be Kid Flash himself, Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale).

  • Basic plot
  • Steppenwolf has been able to come back to Earth and wants to find the three mother boxes; once the boxes are united, the world can be conquered and
  • The past
  • Steppenwolf tried to conquer Earth before, but the united armies of Amazons (with help from the Gods), Atlanteans, humans, and Green Lanterns beat him (LotRstyle). They spilt the Mother Boxes, hiding and protecting them. One is in Atlantis, one is on Themyscira, and the humans buried the third.

  • Feels guilty about Superman’s death
  • Uses guy’s fear to lure a creature (find out later it’s a Parademon)

  • Relies heavily on Alfred
  • Buys bank that took the Kent’s farm

  • Chris –
  • Michelle – Yes, but with Batman and Alfred as Watchtower
  • Are you excited about other DC films?
  • SP –

Speaking to CBR and other reporters during a visit to the show’s Vancouver set, Amell explained how he convinced Warner Bros. to let him use Batman’s real name and what it could mean for the Arrowverse at large. “The original version of that script, which came out right before Comic-Con, it was just Oliver referencing a famous name,” he revealed. “I can’t remember what the placeholder was. I think it might have been Justin Bieber. I looked at it, and I thought to myself, ‘This is a cool opportunity.’ I talked with Greg Berlanti about it, and Greg said, ‘You know, I think that it would behoove you to just go directly to Geoff Johns and just simply ask. You’ll probably have better luck than I would.’”

GENERAL DC NEWS

 

  1. Legends of Tomorrow’s Heatwave Teases Dynamic with Citizen Cold (Date: 10 Nov 2017)
  2. Wentworth Miller is returning to the Arrowverse, but not as Captain Cold. Miller will play Citizen Cold, Leonard Snart’s doppelganger from another world — but what does that mean for Captain Cold’s longtime partner Heatwave? Speaking to CBR and other reporters, Legends of Tomorrow star Dominic Purcell teased how Heatwave will react to meeting the “new” Snart. Asked what brings the two characters together, Purcell joked, “Oh, well, the writers brought them together.” On a more serious note, he said, “What I can elaborate on is that the relationship between Heatwave and Captain Cold — or not Captain Cold… Citizen [Cold]. It’s changed. The audience will really see a difference in his character, and also how Rory reacts to this new… you know, Captain Cold, if you will. So it was interesting. We’re dealing with some really topical stuff.”

  1. Laurie Metcalf Joins SupergirlIn Key Role (Date: 09 Nov 2017) 
  2. Laurie Metcalf will join Season 3 of Supergirlas Winn Schott’s (Jeremy Jordan) estranged mothers. Supergirl fans were already introduced to Winn’s father, Winslow Schott Sr. (Henry Czerny), back in Season 1. Winslow proved to be quite the opposite of Winn, as he ended up revealing himself to be the Toymaker, a villain who committed atrocious acts with weapons concealed in toys. There’s no telling if Metcalf’s character will share the same homicidal tendencies as Winslow. Metcalf’s reason for taking the role is actually pretty endearing – she wants to make sure her daughter can meet her idol, Melissa Benoist, the series’ star.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. ‘Arrow’ star Rick Gonzalez: ‘Wild Dog doesn’t love the code name, but he loves the suit’ (Date: 02 Nov 2017)
  2. “I did hear that Terry Beatty, the original creator of Wild Dog in the comic books, wasn’t too happy about [the costume upgrade],” Gonzalez says of Beatty’s Facebook post lamenting the makeover. “And I totally get it. It can feel we’re not keeping the integrity of Wild Dog the same, especially by changing his look.” On a practical level, Gonzalez says working with the new outfit has its challenges: “Oh, it’s definitely harder. I need two other people to help me get it on, strap everything on.”

Unfortunately for them, most of those characters have tried to kill them, but they’ll (hopefully) find a new ally in the form of Matt Ryan’s John Constantine. While we’re still awaiting the first hi-res image of Ryan’s chain-smoking anti-hero, series creator Marc Guggenheim has sharedan early look of the Hellblazer hanging out in the Waverider with Ray Palmer.

But in a recent Instagram post, Miller put up a thank you letter that makes it sound like this will be his last time in the goggles and parka. The note reads, “Currently shooting some of my final episodes as “Captain Cold/Leonard Snart” on the CW’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and THE FLASH…Grateful – now and in advance – to a pair of talented casts and hardworking crews… Thank you…I’ve had a tremendous time playing this character… It’s been an opportunity, an education, and a f-ckingblast…With love and respect. -W.M.

  1. Supergirl: Reign’s Costume Revealed in New Photo (Date: 30Oct 2017) 
  2. Reign has arrived on Supergirl. The CW has just revealed a first look at the Season 3 big bad in her costume, which serves as a dark mirror to the Girl of Steel’s own. Befitting of any villain, Reign’s costume is completely black, though it seems to be made of the same material as Supergirl’s She also has a shield on her chest, but it contains a skull instead of the House of El’s“S” symbol. However, that’s where the similarities end; Reign’s costume is far more armored, with bladed gauntlets, shoulder protection and a pointed metal hair piece.
