There’s a plethora of superhero TV shows available to the public, from the horror-driven Constantine to the action-packed Arrow to the sci-fi adventures of The Flash. We’ve gone ahead and ranked each superhero TV show currently airing to give you an idea of what you should be checking out.
After a few weeks in recovery, the Arrow is back! And he certainly looked the part at the end of the "Uprising" when he let the citizens and, more importantly, criminals of his city know the green-hooded hero had returned. Returned, recuperated and not happy that the “Canaries” got in the game while he was on the sidelines.
Ray Palmer will be putting on the A.T.O.M. suit for the first time on Arrow in a couple weeks, but how long until we see him shrink? One of the executive producers has the answer.
For nearly all of Arrow’s run, John Diggle has been a intricate member of Team Arrow, essentially serving as Oliver’s second-in-command and moral compass. However, there have been frequent discussions among the fans about whether John should trade in his leather jacket and put on a costume and mask to fit in close with Oliver, Roy and Laurel. Like, say, the Green Lantern's costume.
After their three week min-arc, Arrow will go back into a more regular pacing, but don’t think that means that things will go back to normal. In fact, we might get our most unusual episode yet with the return of these two characters. One of them just might startle you.
This week, while light on references to the DCU, finally marked the end of the Arrow resurrection mini-arc. Since the superhero series' return, one adversary has been doing a lot of damage in Oliver's absence with Vinnie Jones' villain running the law out of the Glades. It's going to take an old-fashioned “Uprising” to root out this miniboss.
Although he drafted Felicity Smoak to help build it, we haven’t actually seen what it would look like aside from those holograms, and they’ve encountered a few obstacles with its construction in recent episodes. Fortunately, the CW has released the first image of Brandon Routh in the Atom costume, which he will put on for the first time in Episode 15, titled “Nanda Parbat."
Next week Arrow’s unofficial trilogy concludes with “Uprising,” and judging from the CW’s official episode description and the 30 second promo, it’s going to be a wild ride. Here is what you can expect from the February 4 episode.
After the fall at the end of ”The Climb,” Team Arrow was forced to try and save the city last week without the eponymous hero and there were more than a few missteps. Like letting the big-bad get away, for one. Good news though, Oliver Queen isn’t dead. What a shock! Right? Right?!
In Season 2, Arrow introduced Task Force X, nicknamed the Suicide Squad, a group of imprisoned criminals that A.R.G.U.S. sends on dangerous black-ops missions, but that will change in the coming months when the team of supervillain operatives return this season.
The crossovers with Arrow continue later this season on The Flash when these two characters will pop by Central City to help out the Scarlet Speedster and the S.T.A.R. Labs team.
Next week the insanity continues in “Midnight City,” which is the second part of this unofficial Arrow trilogy. What we know so far comes from the official CW description and the 30 second promo the network has released, and there are plenty of clues and hints about what’s coming. We’ve gone ahead and broken down what you can expect from the January 28 episode.
While Oliver Queen is doing a bang-up job fighting evildoers on Arrow, that isn’t stopping some people from wanting to see another famous non-powered vigilante who uses personal tragedy as motivation to stop crime on the series: Batman.
It’s been too long since the last episode of Arrow but I’m pretty sure no one forgot what happened at the end of "The Climb." The superhero series’ mid-season finale ended on quite the cliffhanger with Oliver losing his shirtless showdown with one of the deadliest villains in DCU. And the wait for his return has been excruciating. It’s time to bring our hero back from the dead.
Being stabbed and falling off a cliff won’t keep this archer down. Want to know what happened to Oliver Queen following his duel with Ra’s al Ghul? This week’s return of Arrow has the answer.
