As Comic Con winds down, we can’t forget our favourite TV superhero universe. We’ve already covered what you can expect from Supergirl season 3, but what about the rest of your Arrow-verse? Well, here’s the scoop on all of them as revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic Con.
Let’s start with the more recent of the three series. Legends of Tomorrow, which ended season two with dinosaurs in L.A. So where do you go after that? The circus, of course. In the Legends’ third year, Deadline announced that Damien Dahrk himself, Neal McDonough, will be appearing as a full-time member of the cast, and that Arthur Darvill and Wentworth Miller will be returning to the show on a part-time basis as Rip Hunter and Captain Cold, respectively.
Legends of Tomorrow returns Tuesday October 10.
In the season three finale of The Flash, Barry had to depart to join the speed force for his myriad of speedster-based sins, but when he returns this fall, there will be a bunch of new faces in Central City according to Deadline. Neil Sandilands will play the season’s big bad, Clifford Devoe, AKA: the Thinker, as the Fastest Man Alive will be pitted against the Fast Brain Alive. Brain over brawn? You will have to watch Flash season four to find out who wins.
Sandilands will be joined by Kim Engelbrecht as the Mechanic, who will be the Thinker’s right hand woman, an engineer that creates the tech used in many of his capers. The immortal Danny Trejo, meanwhile, will appear as Breacher, a bounty hunter from Earth-19 coming to Earth Prime to stop any further breaches of the multiverse with extreme severity.
The Flash premieres on Tuesday October 10 at 8 pm.
Lastly, the one that started it all, Arrow. When we last left the adventures of the Emerald Archer, he and all his pals were back on Lian Yu for the final showdown against Prometheus when the whole damn island blew up. Now obviously some people will survive, and there’s a spoiler-y reveal in the trailer below, but indeed Arrow, and Oliver Queen, will carry on in season six, and there will be some new faces…
First up, nerd icon Michael Emerson (Ben Linus from Lost and Mr. Finch from Person of Interest) will have a recurring role next season, although it was not revealed to Deadline what that role might be. Emerson will be joined by David Nykl, who will return at some point as Oliver’s Russian mob frenemie Anatoly Knyazev. As previously revealed, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Martinez/Wild Dog, and Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/the new Black Canary have been upgraded to full-time status next year, and Katie Cassidy will be with the show again full-time as Laurel’s Earth 2 doppelgänger, the Black Siren.
Arrow can be seen in its new home on Thursdays at 9 pm starting Ocobter 12.
