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

15 hours ago | 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 might 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 »

New TV Spot ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

22 July 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Comic-book movies have mostly focused on the superhero world as of late, but in the early 2000s Hollywood was taking bigger chances on darker and more independent comics such as Road To Perdition, Ghost World and arguably the biggest of the bunch, Frank Miller’s Sin City. As a twisted anthology of noir tales set in the fictional Basin City, it gave us a cruel and violent world which brought the comic to life via the use of excessive green screen, allowing director’s Miller and Robert Rodriguez to stunningly recreate the graphic novels.

This latest TV spot seems to try and convince us of a more heroic feel with the line “When outlaws become heroes.” The big stars of the original’s impressive cast return with  few changes, the late Michael Clarke Duncan and the pregnant Devon Aoki are absent while Michael Madsen and Clive Owen have been replaced »

Arrow season 3 synopsis revealed

10 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With cameras starting to roll on the third season of Arrow yesterday, The CW has wasted little time in giving us a taste of what’s to come, releasing an official synopsis for season three of the hit superhero show, which does contain some minor spoilers:

“In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen – not as long as the city needs The Arrow.”

The third season of Arrow is set to get underway on Wednesday, October 8th, »

Brandon Routh Joins TV's Arrow

8 July 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Once he was Superman. Now he's The Atom. Brandon Routh, who took the lead in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns in 2006, is joining The CW TV series Arrow for its third season, in the recurring role of one Ray Palmer. He joins the also recently arrived Peter Stormare (playing Count Vertigo) and Devon Aoki (playing Katana).In the original DC comics, Palmer was a professor of physics who developed a shrinking apparatus using matter from a white dwarf star. Naturally he ended up using it on himself (to escape a spelunking tragedy - damn that spelunking!) and was left with the permanent ability to reduce his size to a subatomic level. Accepting his new-found power, he decided to use it for superheroic good guy antics.His role in Arrow has been described as "an unrivalled scientist and inventor who will play an unexpected role in [Green Arrow] Oliver Queen's life".

Brandon Routh Joins Season 3 of Arrow

7 July 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The CW’s Arrow just picked up Peter Stormare and Devon Aoki, but apparently there’s still room on the season three roster for more because now Brandon Routh is in the mix, too.  Clearly Routh knows a thing or two about donning tights and rocking superhuman powers having starred in Bryan Singer’s 2006 release, Superman Returns, but for those of you who’d rather avoid show spoilers, we’ll save the specifics of his Arrow role for after the jump.  If you’d rather not wait until Arrow returns on Wednesday, October 8th at 8pm Et/Pt for the big reveal, continue on to find out who Routh is bringing to Starling City. As reported by TV Line, Routh will add another DC superhero to his resume courtesy of his new gig on Arrow because his recurring role will be Ray Palmer, the physicist also known as The Atom. »

Brandon Routh Joins "Arrow" As The Atom

7 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Former Superman himself Brandon Routh looks likely to play another superhero from DC Comics mythology - The Atom. The actor is set to play the main recurring guest star in the upcoming third season of The CW's "Arrow".

Routh will play Ray Palmer, a scientist, inventor and the new owner of Queen Consolidated. The deal spans fourteen episodes, with the character also serving as a love interest for fan favorite Felicity Smoak.

In the comics, Palmer becomes The Atom, a character that can shrink down to subatomic size. Whether the show will follow through with that we'll have to wait and see. It's likely though as the character matches a leaked casting description the other week of one of the new key characters.

Routh joins other announced newcomers this season including Karl Yune, Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and returning champ John Barrowman who has been upped to a series regular. »

Former Superman Brandon Routh to Play Another Superhero on 'Arrow'

7 July 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Years before "Man of Steel" launched the debate of how many city blocks Superman could successfully destroy while still being classifiable as a "superhero," there was "Superman Returns." A venture launched by "X-Men" mastermind Bryan Singer and piggybacking, weirdly enough, on Richard Donner's original "Superman" movie, it was unsuccessful, and anchored by a young actor who seemed destined for super-stardom... Until he wasn't. Well, that actor, Brandon Routh, will make a return to his comic book origins, with a supporting role on the CW's wildly popular "Arrow."

According to TV Line, Routh, who also popped up in the comic book-derived masterpiece "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (not to mention the less successful "Dylan Dog," based on the beloved Italian horror comic), will play Ray Palmer in the third season of "Arrow." For those of you with successful romantic partnerships, Ray Palmer's alter-ego is The Atom, who can shrink down to microscopic sizes, »

Arrow's Stephen Amell Shoots Down Batman V Superman Movie Speculation

TV’s own Green Arrow will not pop up in the highly anticipated Batman V Superman movie, the CW series’ star made clear on Thursday.

Stephen Amell used his Facebook page to snuff the speculation, which started when word spread that other DC Comics heroes would first make cameos in the Dark Knight/Man of Steel mash-up (starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill and swooping into theaters May 2016) before populating a Justice League movie (targeted for May ’17).

The Arrow “crossover” theory then amplified when Amell himself teased “big things” to be revealed at »

Peter Stormare and Devon Aoki Join Season Three of Arrow as Key Comic Book Characters

3 July 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, season three of Arrow is just a few months away now, and the cast looks set to expand considerably with the addition of three new cast members. They will each be playing a well-known character from the comic books, and we have all the spoiler-free details on each of them for you right here!

22 Jump Street star Peter Stormare will play Count Vertigo, and if that name sounds familiar, it ‘s because the character was played by Seth Gabel in a number of season one and season two episodes. Stormare however will play Werner Zytle, a character who is an actual Count and the ruler of Vlatava.

Hopefully this version will actually have the same powers as his comic book counterpart who uses his “Vertigo Effect” to disrupt his enemies’ balance, something which is problematic for Green Arrow!
