According to Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) there are no rules in Superhero Fight Club. The CW superhero lineup that includes Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow are about to hit television screens everywhere next week with a four punch lineup that would make any network proud. Superhero Fight Club helps tie all those series together in a fun way and the video is simply delightful. Each series might have its ups and downs, but when those series merge together, it is magical. (more…)


It was kind of bombshell yesterday when the CW announced at the Television Critics Association Press Tour that they were considering a two-part musical crossover between Supergirl and The Flash. Why not? The stars of both series have musical experience, so why not exploit that? The Flash already has if you’ll recall season one’s one-off trip to the karaoke bar. So we’ve got superheroes, we’ve got singing, the whole thing needs now a director, someone with previous experience himself combining the two art forms… Can you think of a better person to pull this off than Joss Whedon? Apparently, neither can the powers that be at the CW.  (more…)

The Flash Adds Another Rogue to Season 3

While the Flash’s Rogue Gallery (or villain lineup) in comics has never been as famous as Superman’s or Batman’s, Flash does have his own villain team in The Rogues; assembled and led by Captain Cold, it consisting of Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster, Pied Piper, the Top, Captain Boomerang, and Mirror Master. If you’ve been watching The Flash television series, you know that many of these characters have popped up already (Captain Boomerang even getting involved in a minor crossover with Arrow), and now it looks like another ‘rogue’ is entering the fray for the show’s third season.  (more…)


When Echo Kellum signed up to play Curtis Holt in the fourth season of the CW’s Arrow, comic book fans were excited because of Curtis’ superhero alterego, Mr. Terrific. Now it would be wrong to say that if the last season of Arrow fell apart it was because Kellum never got to suit of as Terrific, but it was kind of disappointing that it never happened. Prepare to make amends! As inferred in the Comic Con sizzle reel for Arrow season five, Curtis will be one of a number of new heroes being trained by Oliver Queen, and the actor promises, “The mask is happening this year. […] You can definitely expect it in the first nine.” (more…)

Stephen Amell Teases Arrow Season 5 on Twitter

Production on the fifth season of CW’s Arrow has begun, as confirmed by the show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who teased fans with a shot of the script from the season’s first episode on July 5th. The episode titled ‘Legacy’ may imply some rather heavy themes not only in the sense of the story, but also the show’s production itself. During a Q&A session on June 26th at the Heroes & Villains FanFest in Secaucus, N.J., Amell was quoted as saying, “The first two episodes [of Season 5] refocuses us on what the core mission of the show should be, and that to me is very exciting,” this is in reference to the series straying from it’s ‘street hero’ roots during the last two seasons, which had some fans complaining. Now it seems season 5 will grant them their wish, and Stephen has given us our first sneak peek.



Here’s a good news/bad news situation, though the powers that be would likely want you to focus on the good news. Fans of the CW‘s very popular line-up of shows were disappointed, angered and upset earlier this year when the network’s deal with Hulu expired, and it looked like a new one would not be reached. Given that a lot of people watch their favorite CW series in the days following its network airdate on Hulu, it seemed like people were going to have to either pirate those programs or, God forbid, get a cable account. So the good news is that all the shows presently on the CW’s schedule will now be coming to Netflix. The bad news? They won’t be coming as soon as you’d like. (more…)

Familiar Face Gets a New Superhero Identity on ‘Arrow’


Last season of Arrow got mixed reviews from fans; some people didn’t like how far it strayed with the gritty realism of the first two seasons, and others hated the emphasis on the romance between two of the main characters (you know the ones we mean). So what has the show got up its sleeve for season five? It seems like it’s masks and more masks if these casting announcements are to be believed, and why shouldn’t they be? Now in the mix is a character we’ve already met, but who will come back to Arrow this season with a new secret identity.  (more…)


DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘ looks to be adding to their ensemble with the news that the character Vixen would appear on the series. Mari McCabe, portrayed by actress Megalyn Echikunwoke (above), was introduced last season on ‘Arrow.’ The Detroit vigilante imbued with the animalistic powers of a sacred totem was well-received on the show and with The CW‘s Berlanti-verse, where all their superhero shows (The Flash, Supergirl, and the previously two mentioned), it is easy for the character to transition to this different series. Unfortunately, due to scheduling and potential upcoming film projects, the actress seen previously won’t be the one used in the time-traveling show. (more…)

Willa feature

Shared universes. In comic books, it helps maintain continuity and allow for superheroes to be aware of one another and become involved, if need be. It’s the cornerstone of having a universe-wide event that spans across many, or all, of the titles the publisher produces. But the concept of multiple universes, or multiverses, may be too much for a non-comic book reader to grasp. The CW’s ‘The Flash’ has done a great job at explaining different universes existing, such as Earth 2, where it shows similarities to the world you know, a universe running parallel if you will, but with some deviations that define it as a different world. A shared universe would be better received by ALL fans, regardless of comic book knowledge, and would make for compelling scenarios both of the small screen and the big. But a number of actors have expressed their frustrations at their not being included in the film properties’ plans. The latest to speak up? ‘Arrow’s Willa Holland. (more…)


It’s tough being the CW, they already have so many successful programs that they only picked up three for the fall, and only two of them will debut in October. The odd man out is Archie. Well, make that Riverdale, the new CW series based on the long-running comic book character and his friends from super-producer Greg Berlanti (whose superhero series make up 40 per cent of the CW’s fall programming). You’ve heard for a while that this is not going to be your mother’s Archies, as Berlanti and Co. were going for something “modern”, “dark”, and “subversive”. Prepare to click all three boxes as you sink into the sorted and scandalous world of Riverdale. (more…)
