All along, showrunners Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle have been telling us Arrow was seen as a five-year odyssey, intended to be the same amount of time post-Lian Yu, to show how he has grown since being stranded there. Other than that noble notion, the execution has been incredibly uneven season to season.
As the series entered its fifth year, they began the season uncertain if this was going to be its final one so they made certain things got tidied up. The tedious flashbacks had to wrap up the five years before the series’ start and move Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his friends towards a point where, should it be canceled, viewers were left satisfied.
Somewhere during the production of the final nine episodes, they got a sixth season renewal so shifted the planning to bring things to a climax and a cliffhanger. The messy 23 episodes are »

Rick Gonzalez joined the cast of Arrow for season 5, playing new Team Arrow recruit Rene Ramirez, aka Wild Dog. The gun-toting vigilante character grew into a fan favourite over the course of the season, with Rene’s flashback-stuffed origin episode – Spectre Of The Gun – being a vital point in his development.

Rene’s unlikely friendship/workplace banter with Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) proved to be a real treat too, with the pair bonding over their family issues. At the end of the season, Rene failed to appear at a custody hearing, which is bound to have major repercussions in Arrow season 6.
A few weeks ago at the Comic-Con panel for Arrow‘s upcoming sixth season, Marc Guggenheim teased the introduction of DC Comics and Green Arrow villain Richard Dragon. And, as per Deadline, it has now been revealed that Band of Brothers‘ Kirk Acevedo has been cast for a season-long recurring role as Dragon.

A master in hand to hand combat, honed by years of life on the street, Diaz has yet to meet a foe he can’t take down.”

Arrow season 6 may see the return of The Huntress.
Part of the fun of any superhero and comic book related content is wondering which characters might make an appearance and which favourites might return after a long time away.
This is no different for the CWs Arrow, and it seems like the character Huntress might just return for season 6, in what would be her first appearance since 2014.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim, was asked about the possibility of seeing the character return by Cbr, and seemed interested in the idea.
“I want to say, ‘Absolutely.’ Jessica De Gouw [Huntress] has expressed an absolute willingness to come back. Jessica’s a favorite actor of mine, and the Huntress is a favorite character of mine. I want to make it happen in Season 6. We’ve got some plans for the later half of the year that I think she will fit into really well, »

A newly assembled video for EA’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II has been released, providing fans of the storied franchise a peek behind the curtain, if you will, of the shooter’s anticipated single-player mode. If you recall, Battlefront II‘s official unveiling earlier this year coincided with confirmation that the sequel would feature a dedicated campaign mode, with Imperial trooper Iden Versio (Janina Gavankar) revealed as its protagonist.
Well since then, we’ve not heard a great deal about the much-welcome (and needed) addition to the formula, with EA preferring instead to focus squarely on multiplayer gameplay at this year’s E3, but today, that changes quite considerably. No, this isn’t the first extended look at Battlefront II‘s single-player component you were perhaps looking for, but rather, a behind-the-scenes tour of the campaign’s development process and just how dedicated Dice is to making the journey feel authentically like Star Wars, »

The CW’s Og superhero drama came full circle on Wednesday's season finale, returning Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) -- and literally every other person in his life -- back to Lian Yu, the deadly island in the South China Sea where, five years ago, a shipwrecked playboy emerged as the vigilante that would become the Green Arrow.

This season of TV has been a busy on one the CW — especially if you’re into their DC fare. With Supergirl finally joining the network in an official capacity, they had four hours of superhero programming each week. With the addition of Black Lightning, next season will bring us five superhero shows — a huge achievement for any network, really.
This coming fall will, of course, see the return of all four other shows, and with the current seasons finally wrapping up, CW has released synopses for each one of them. While the network has always been really good about keeping big spoilers out of the synopses, at the very least, you can get a glimpse of where the momentum for each show is going.
Have a look at the synopses below!

We haven’t even seen the season finales for the current run of The CW’s DC TV shows yet (well, at least not for 3 of the 4), but the network has already released some synopses for the 2017/2018 season. Though it’s obviously early days and they don’t reveal a whole lot, we can still pick out some interesting new details from what’s been provided.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R.

With just hours to go until this season’s penultimate episode of Arrow graces our television screens, a new featurette has surfaced that provides a deeper look into the final phases of Prometheus’ deadly game.
In it, executive producer Wendy Mericle takes us on a guided tour of this particular installment and, without spoiling too much, lets us know that Adrian Chase has no intention of lying down now that he’s in Argus’s custody. In fact, he has contingencies in place, but would you expect anything less from a guy who always has his eyes on the prize?
As it turns out, his allies are picking off members of Team Arrow one by one, putting Oliver in a desperate situation. Sure, some fisticuffs may ensue, but we’re assuming most of that’ll be saved for next week’s season finale. In the meantime, it looks like Oliver »
