J.R. Ramirez cast as Wildcat in Arrow

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the big Warner Bros. / DC Television panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Ted Grant – a.k.a. Wildcat – is set to appear in the upcoming third season of Arrow, and now Deadline has revealed that J.R. Ramirez (Power) has signed on to portray the character in The CW show.

Arrow’s incarnation of Grant is described as “a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youth. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance’s arc this season”, so expect him to train Laurel on her path to becoming the Black Canary.

The third season of Arrow is set to get underway on Wednesday, October 8th, with Brandon Routh (The Atom), Devon Aoki (Katana), Karl Yune (Maseo Yamashiro) and Peter Stormare (Count Vertigo) set to the returning Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), David Ramsey (John Diggle), Emily Bett Rickards »

The CW Adds Ra’s al Ghul Footage to New Arrow Season 3 Trailer

18 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The CW released the first Arrow season 3 trailer on Friday.  On Saturday, Stephen Amell announced that Ra's al Ghul will be the big bad in season 3, so The CW has released a new extended trailer that adds about 30 seconds of Ra's al Ghul footage at the end of the clip.  Ra's al Ghul was referenced several times in season 2, so fans guessed this was coming.  His presence in this footage is represented by camera pans across a faceless costume and ominous voice-over, so it will be interesting to see who the Arrow team casts as the immortal villain. Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Wolland and Caity Lotz along with new cast members Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh, Arrow season 3 returns October 8.  Check out the first look at Ra's al Ghul after the jump.  Some background on Ra's al Ghul from the comics: Ra's al Ghul »

The villain of Arrow season 3 is Ra’s al Ghul, new promo released

27 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After much fan speculation about Arrow‘s “Big Bad” for season three, it’s finally been made official: the Demon’s Head himself, Ra’s al Ghul, is making his way to Starling City.

The news was announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros./DC TV panel in Hall H late Saturday night. The announcement was followed by some comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who stated that the seeds for Ra’s’ arrival had been planted very early on:

“It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that’s because that’s because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. »

Wildcat to appear in Arrow season 3

27 July 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that DC comics character Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, would be heading to Starling City for an appearance in Arrow‘s third season.

For those unfamiliar, Ted Grant is a championship boxer in DC Comics, who became entangled in the criminal underworld and developed the costumed identity Wildcat to clear his name. Created by Batman creator Bill Finger and artist Irwin Hasen in 1942, Wildcat is a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and trained several members of the Justice League including Black Canary and Batman.

Nothing is known about his part in Arrow, such as when it will take place, how long he’ll be on the show, or who could play him, but executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated that he’ll have “some interaction with Laurel,” meaning he’s probably tasked with training her »

Wildcat And Ra’s Al Ghul Are Heading To Arrow

27 July 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.

The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

'Blacklist': Don't expect a Red-Liz reveal, do expect Mary-Louise Parker

26 July 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

“Who is Red Reddington?” asked several giant-sized posters spread around last year’s Comic-Con. That was before the debut of NBC’s The Blacklist, everyone’s new favorite James Spader Delivery System, which became a shining freshman star in a rough TV season. But even though the show was a success, in some ways, it never quite answered that central question. Or anyhow, it never provided final clarity on one key mystery: Is Red actually the long-thought-dead father of FBI agent Elizabeth Keen?

Don’t expect a for-sure answer to that question anytime soon. At the Blacklist’s 2014 Comic-Con panel, »

Arrow Season 3 Gets An Action-Packed New Trailer

25 July 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In anticipation for the Arrow panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the CW has released the first trailer for the upcoming third season, which is packed to the gills with new footage.

After a heart-pounding second season, Arrow is really going to need to hit the ground running. Judging by this new trailer, it looks like the series’ impressive momentum is still intact, and things are off to an intense start. We’ve see Roy suited up as Arsenal and fighting alongside Oliver, and Sara Lance returning to Starling as the Canary. On top of that, we’ve got Fargo alum Peter Stormare looking mighty intimidating as the new Count Vertigo, and our first glimpse at former Superman Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom.

Things look to be shaking up on the personal side too, as it looks like Oliver and Diggle have a falling out, while »

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases season 3′s new villain

22 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen has tussled with Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) across the past two seasons of Arrow, and so far the producers of the DC superhero show have been keeping the new villain for the upcoming third season under wraps. However, that may not be the case for much longer, with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg telling EW that the new bad guy will be cast “soon”, as well as teasing their motivation.

“Slade had a very specific agenda—he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What’s interesting about the villain in season three is that he doesn’t necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn’t have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some ways has a very similar worldview. [But] the Arrow is thinking too small. In some ways, as Oliver is struggling with »

Nicolas Cage Revenge Film Rage Heading To DVD/Bluray This August!

21 July 2014 11:47 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nicolas Cage has done a great job choosing roles lately, with great turns in films like David Gordon Green’s Joe and the Paco Cabezas revenge film, Rage (formerly titled Tokarev). The latter, an exceptionally written and directed take on how one’s past can and most likely Will catch up with them is set to hit DVD/Bluray this August 12th, via Image Entertainment. Having seen the film earlier this year, on its VOD run (here), we can definitely vouch for this one, as it’s a pretty intense and emotional, tough as nails thriller. If Cage keeps putting out films like these, then the internet meme persona he’s unfortunately acquired in recent years can finally fade away, making people realize that he’s an exceptional actor (you’re lying if you say that you’re not a fan of Raising Arizona, and his Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas »

"Arrow" - The Return Of A Super-Villain

20 July 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to VancouverFilm.Net, actor Peter Stormare will kick-off Season 3 of The CW series "Arrow", debuting October 8, 2014, as a familiar comic book villain:

Stormare takes over from Seth Gabel who played 'The Count' in Season One and Season Two of "Arrow". Stormare will now be known as 'Vertigo', aka 'Werner Zytle'. The character debuted in DC's "World's Finest Comics" #251 (July 1978).

The character was the last descendant of the royal family that ruled the small eastern European country of 'Vlatava' that was taken over by the Soviets and later became devastated by the 'Spectre'.

"...'Count Vertigo' first appeared in 'Star City', where he attempted to steal back the jewels his parents had sold when they escaped to England after the war. The victim of a hereditary inner ear defect that affected his balance, Vertigo had a small electronic device implanted in his right temple that compensated this problem.

"Tinkering with the device, »
