It was a big night for Warner Bros. Television and DC Comics in Hall H at Comic-Con tonight, and that certainly applies to Arrow, as evidenced by the above preview, which was screened at the Night of DC Entertainment at SDCC...
Arrow didn't bother waiting for their San Diego Comic-Con panel to start making major Season 3 announcements. In the last few months month, the CW superhero series cast former-Superman Brandon Routh as Ray 'The Atom' Palmer; announced a crossover with Flash; and then released our first look at Roy as Arsenal. But that doesn't mean Arrow spilled all of its third season secrets before taking the stage in Ballroom 20.
Arsenal is sticking with the red hoodie attire that has worked so well for these guys in the past, although this one looks like itís ready for some wear and tear. Itís no Batsuit, of course, but itís a more hero-worthy outfit than the drab winter hoodie he was wearing before.
San Diego Comic-Con officially kicks off a week from today, so the timing is perfect for Warner Bros. to unveil the designs for the collectible bags, which will be handed out to all registered attendees when they arrive to pick up their SDCC badges.
Brandon Routh is headed back to DC territory, though he won't be playing Superman this time around. Routh played Superman in Bryan Singer's 2006 film Superman Returns, but in Arrow, he has been cast to play the role of Ray Palmer -- also known in the DC universe as Atom -- in Season 4 of the CW series.
Warner Bros. Television has announced their plans for Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. That includes the traditional Wednesday pilot screenings for preview night, as well as a bevy of panels for their new and popular TV series during the convention.
There is an impressive amount of comic book content coming to television this year. In addition to returning shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow, the networks will be flooded with programming like Marvel Studiosí Agent Carter and DCís Gotham, The Flash, and Constantine. Really, itís a comic book fans dream, but if you just canít wait and want to get an early look at some of those shows, I have some very good news for you.
Following CBS' Fall TV premiere schedule, the CW has released their own plans for new and returning programming this fall. It looks like they'll be getting things going during early October, starting with The Vampire Diaries, Reign and TVD-spinoff The Originals.
After becoming a dominant force in the world of blockbuster movies, comic books are now ready to take over television. Perhaps the most exciting in-development project of the bunch, however, is the Flash series that is currently in the works over at the CW.
The CW is giving us two new looks at the upcoming Arrow spinoff The Flash. While one video has Barry Allen zipping through the fast lane, the other has him stuck in the friend zone. The above video shows Barry exploring his newly acquired super-speed, which involves a bit of testing, guided by Tom Cavanagh's Dr. Harrison Wells.
John Barrowman's Arrow character dropped in a couple of times throughout the CW series' second season, but it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Malcolm Merlyn in Season 3, as Barrowman has been promoted to series regular. Arrow SPOILER warning if you're not caught up on Season 2 through this week's finale, "Unthinkable"!
To top off a wonderful season full of fantastic fights, memorable characters and, of course, DCU references, Arrow did the ďUnthinkable.Ē The Season 2 finale not only featured two Ďfinalí showdowns between our hero and big bad but also the return of almost everyone who has ever fought over the fate of Starling City.
Of the five major TV networks, the CW is the last to do its upfront presentation. The 2014-2015 was announced this morning, and as we hoped, The Flash is on the line-up, along with new drama Jane the Virgin and returning favorites The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and The 100. Zombie drama iZombie and sci-fi series The Messengers will air in 2015.
Next Wednesday night, the "Unthinkable" will happen... and maybe not just because the Arrow Season 2 finale is titled "Unthinkable." In fact, the title may very well be a major warning that something terrible is going to happen by season's end. Will Slade kill the person Oliver loves most?
In with the new unfortunately means out with the old. Or well, old-ish anyway. CW's Star-Crossed only just got its start this year, and The Tomorrow People debuted last fall, but both dramas have been cancelled by The CW, along with veteran series The Carrie Diaries.
