'The Flash' & 'Arrow' Debut Revealing First Trailers for New Seasons -- Plus, Watch a Sweet B-Day Surprise!

22 July 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Flash and Arrow teams had a lot to explain when they took the stage at Comic-Con on Saturday afternoon, with both shows having ended their most recent seasons on massive cliffhangers.

Though the casts and producers on the DC superhero dramas didn’t provide any tangible answers for what will happen to Team Flash following Barry Allen’s disappearance into the Speed Force or the island explosion that seemingly left everyone -- except Oliver Queen and his son, William -- dead, they did release sneak peeks for the new seasons that offered some big hints.

For The Flash, Barry’s decision to leave fiancée Iris West and enter the Speed Force means the team will have a de facto new leader, who just so happens to be Iris herself. In the first look at the fourth season, Iris takes the control board in Flash headquarters and becomes an even more assertive presence.

‘Arrow’ Shoots and Scores With Season 6 Trailer, Teases Return of Katie Cassidy

22 July 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the close of Season 5 of “Arrow,” there was a huge explosion on the island that left the status of Team Arrow in question. When the gang hit the Comic-Con stage two months later on Saturday, fans got to see an early sneak peek at what our heroes will be up to in the new season.

The panel included stars Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsay, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzales, Juliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy, as well as executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle.

Mericle opened the panel by talking about the explosion, “The explosion felt like the right way to wrap up Oliver’s story.” Guggenheim added, “Season 5 would end as the end to the last ten years of Oliver’s life. We’re not rebooting the show, we’ll double down on things that resonated with people in Season 5. We will see a different kind of Oliver Queen. We »

The Arrow team gathered at San Diego’s Comic Con and dropped a new trailer for the forthcoming sixth season, which picks up following the Lian Yu island explosion.

Michael Emerson seems poised to do a real number on the Green Arrow.

The Person of Interest and Lost alum is joining the CW series for Season 6 in the recurring role of… an unnamed mystery character that has yet to be announced. Hmm.

‘Spawn’ Movie in Development From Todd McFarlane and Blumhouse

21 July 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Todd McFarlane is bringing “Spawn” back to the big screen.

The comic book creator announced that a new movie based on his creation is in the works, courtesy of Blumhouse Productions.

“We just signed [Jason Blum] yesterday,” McFarlane said in a video announcement on Friday during San Diego Comic-Con. “No more theoretical … It’s coming. Get ready for it. We’re going into production.”

The character of Spawn first appeared in print in 1992, and gained popularity in the comics community almost instantly. In 1997 New Line adapted the character into a feature film starring Michael Jai White. The movie was a modest financial success, but did not earn critical approval. McFarlane said in Friday’s announcement that the new movie will be rated R, as opposed to the first go-around, which was PG-13. HBO also took a crack at the antihero in an animated series that lasted for three seasons, each with six episodes, and »

Arrow Season 6’s Premiere Won’t Waste Time Letting Us Know Who Survived The Blast

19 July 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Arrow season 5 left us on one of the series’ greatest cliffhangers to date, which we’ve never hesitated referring to as a literally “explosive finale,” the question on our minds and those of millions of other viewers is just who survived the blast Prometheus had been responsible for.

Well, we do know that Juliana Harkavy will return as Dinah Drake, not only because she’s been promoted to being a series regular, but also because the first official image of her donning the Black Canary costume was released last week. Likewise, Katie Cassidy and Rick Gonzalez will be counted among the principal cast, as they reprise their roles as Black Siren and Wild Dog, respectively.

So, aside from other reports implying that Felicity Smoak and Quentin Lance are also still among the living, we’re guessing that pretty much everybody made it out alive, except for maybe Oliver Queen’s baby mama. »

Arrow season 6 production art features the Black Canary memorial display

We’ll presumably get our first look at the upcoming sixth season of Arrow during San Diego Comic-Con International next month with the traditional release of the first trailer, but to tide us over executive producer Andrew Guggenheim has taken to Twitter to share a piece of season six production art featuring a new memorial display to Laurel Lance’s Black Canary…

As yet, we know very little about the sixth season of Arrow, although Katie Cassidy is confirmed to make her return as a series regular, and Stephen Amell has said the theme of the season will be “family”.

Arrow Ep Discusses Black Siren’s Allegiance

23 June 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although many of us were ready to break something after Laurel Lance Aka The Black Canary was killed off in Arrow season 4, we were pleased to at least see Katie Cassidy remain in the fold, albeit as Black Siren, an evil doppelgänger from Earth-2. Originally having been introduced over on The Flash, this counterpart eventually found her way to Star City, which obviously seemed like a more natural home for her.

In the time since, she’s effectively toyed with the emotions of Oliver Queen before later playing a vital part in Adrian Chase’s endgame in the explosive season finale that has since left DC TV devotees reeling. As it turns out, the decision as to which side she would choose came down to the wire, something executive producer and co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly’s Superhero Insider show on Sirius Xm:

“Black Siren went back and forth. We had discussions about whether or not she should be allied with Chase at the end, or allied with Oliver at the end, albeit begrudgingly. We went back and forth and debated the pros and cons of it, and we really felt that true to Evil Laurel’s character, she wouldn’t help Oliver out in this circumstance. It would make more sense that she would be aligned with Chase, who she actually has to thank for her freedom for getting out of the pipeline where she was being held captive on Flash. It also gave us more interesting places to go with her character in Season 6.”

Ultimately, it was best that she remained on the side of evil, at least for now. After all, you wouldn’t have wanted the final two episodes of one of Arrow’s finest showings to become bloated with too many subplots, now would you? Besides, they could still play around with the idea of her going down the road of redemption next season given that Cassidy is once again a series regular.

In addition to that, Guggeheim reflected on the fan favorite actress venturing to the opposite end of the spectrum:

For us, it was really simple. When Katie came back to be Black Siren in 510, we watched the cut of 510 and we were so excited about this iteration of Laurel. Katie just crushed it. I think it shows how much fun Katie is having playing this version of Laurel. We did what we always do, which is if something’s really working on the screen, we find a way to write towards it.”

Expect To See More Of Helix In Arrow Season 6, Ep Accidentally Reveals Returning Character

9 June 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’re current on Arrow, then you’re well aware of how season 5 – the best one the show’s seen in years – quite literally went out with a bang. We say that because Prometheus/Adrian Chase shot himself in the head, thereby triggering a dead man’s switch connected to a myriad of bombs scattered around Lian Yu that were rigged to blow. Thus, we’ll be left in suspense until this fall as to which characters survived aside from Oliver Queen and his son, William.

We can say with confidence though that there are at least three people coming back for certain because each have been confirmed as being series regulars for the coming season: Julian Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez and Katie Cassidy, who play Dinah Drake (the new Black Canary), Wild Dog and Black Siren, respectively.

Thanks to recent comments made by executive producer Wendy Mericle, it looks »
