Anyone who followed either Arrow or The Flash last season knows that both shows cross over quite frequently, whether it be Arrow and his team coming to Central City, or The Flash going to Star City. It makes sense that The CW Network would start promoting both shows at the same time, then, with a new trailer that throws some electronic dance music (Edm) into the mix, along with footage and sound bites from your favorite episodes of both shows. The end of this video teases that The Flash even has a new hobby.
At the end of this thumping party mix, the DJ is revealed to be none other than Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in full costume. Perhaps the network is trying some unconventional promotional methods, luring the Edm crowd in to watch both Arrow and The Flash. This isn't the first time The CW has tried to cross-promote both shows in unique ways. »
With production under way on Season 4 of The CW's hit series Arrow, we have already gotten a look at Team Arrow's new high-tech "cave." Earlier today, series star Paul Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance, revealed a photo from the set, which confirms that the name of Oliver Queen's hometown Starling City has been officially changed to Star City. The actor is seen holding up his new Star City Metro Police badge, with co-star David Ramsey (Diggle) in the background.
You may recall that, at Comic-Con last month, Arrow star Stephen Amell took to the stage, showing off his new costume, where he made a point to call Oliver's hometown Star City, not Starling City. During Season 3, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) mentioned changing the Starling City name to Star City as part of a rebranding effort, since the city had been constantly under attack by numerous villains.

We already know that, when Arrow returns for Season 4 this fall, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will have a brand new costume. As it turns out, that isn't the only upgrade fans will get a look at this year, with Entertainment Weekly debuting a new concept art illustration of Arrow's new lair, dubbed "Arrow Bunker" by the show's writing staff. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim wouldn't reveal exactly where in Star City this new facility is located, but he did discuss why a new lair was built in the first place.
"In designing the new lair, we had to think in terms of the much larger group that Oliver has now surrounded himself with and how Team Arrow is a much bigger enterprise. One of the fun things about this lair is that as opposed to one big space, where everyone would congregate, it's now a much larger space divided up into smaller spaces. »

Rutina Wesley recently landed a recurring role in season four of Arrow, and now Entertainment Weekly has revealed that she will play Liza Warner. She's a reletively obscure character from the comics better known as Lady Cop (seriously). She debuted in the 1970s and was basically just a female police offer who solved crimes. However, she'll have a little more than that to do in The CW series as "Arrow’s spin on the character is said to be surprisingly different as she will be a member of the anti-vigilante task force." It sounds like Star City Pd aren't happy about Oliver Queen's return as the Green Arrow!

With production recently starting on Season 4 of The CW's Arrow, a number of new characters have already been announced, such as the season's main villain, Damien Dahrk (Neal McDonough). Naturally, there are still a slew of characters from the comics that haven't been brought in quite yet, including the Weapons Clans, seven separate groups who align themselves with one particular weapon. During Comic-Con a few weeks ago, the web series DC All Access caught up with Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who teased that the Weapons Clans may certainly come into play in the near future.
"We've talked about it. We've absolutely talked about it. It comes up in the writers room all the time, and Katana was introduced. We're just waiting for the right story to tell. We never approach it from the standpoint of, 'We've gotta get that in, we've got to get that character in, we have to name-check that character. »

The character's political ambitions "put her in the crosshairs of a menacing antagonist." It isn't clear if there are plans for the character to return later on in Season 4 or not.
