A review of tonight's "The Flash" coming up just as soon as I have a feeling you want to hyphenate... When Barry reset the timeline with his trip into the past, the show struggled in the next episode, and I worried that the show had taken the easy way out on all the big events that happened right before Barry's adventure in time. The episodes since haven't really changed my opinion of "Rogue Time," but they have shown that the creative team didn't intend to just wimp out and stuff all the various genies back in their respective bottles. Cisco remembered his murder in the other timeline, and it all built up to the events of "The Trap," which redid a lot of what originally happened in "Out of Time," and was emotionally satisfying in both those ways and the areas where the story continued to deviate. I certainly don't want Cisco dead, »

The CW has added another new addition to its DC universe, with Franz Drameh (Attack the Block, Edge of Tomorrow) set to play the character of Jay Jackson in the upcoming Arrow/Flash spinoff, which is rumoured to be titled Legends of Tomorrow.
The original character is described as “a former high school athlete, whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meets as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew.”
Sounds a lot like Victor Stone, no?
The spinoff is being eyed as a midseason show, and is set to star Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Caity Lotz (who may or may not be Lance/Black Canary), Ciara Renee (Law & Order: Svu) as Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, and Arthur Darvill »

The CW’s Arrow/Flash spinoff project has added a bit of Drameh, with the filling of its third and final new role.

If you were hoping for Tommy Merlyn, or other dead Arrow characters, to return to the show via the Lazarus Pit, think again…
Here’s an intriguing one – while many Arrow fans might have expected the healing powers of the Lazarus Pit to be a path to umpteen ‘look who’s back!’ storylines, now that it has been established in the show, that isn’t actually the plan at all.
Although the pit popped up in a recent episode (we won’t spoil it here), we’ve been told not to expect long-dead fan favourites to take a dip in there as a route to reenergising the show. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained his thoughts to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Now that we've got [the pit] in our world, and we have a lot of dead characters in our world, we will be addressing how it works and the circumstances and things of that nature. »
It seems we may finally have a title for The CW’s untitled spinoff from Arrow and The Flash, with Variety referring to the project as Legends of Tomorrow during an article on the upcoming pilot season. The title is unconfirmed at present, although The Flash star John Wesley Shipp was quoted as referring to the spinoff as “Legends” during a convention appearance over the weekend.
Legends of Tomorrow (or whatever it turns out to be called) is set to feature Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave) and Caity Lotz, who may or may not be reprising the role of Sara Lance/Black Canary. Also set to join the cast are Ciara Renee (Law & Order: Svu) as Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, and Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) signing on as Rip Hunter.

In perhaps the strangest promo to date for The CW's DC Universe shows, the network has released a three-minute short for the final episodes of the current seasons of both "Arrow" and "The Flash".
This isn't footage from the episodes though. Rather it's a one-off, specially made clip with the theme of a 'superhero fight club'. Essentially we see the key hero and villain characters from both shows duking out cage match style. It seems to be aware that it's dumb and campy and so just runs with it, having lots of fun along the way.
The surprise is also the number of characters involved in the short including Arrow, The Flash, Arsenal, Black Canary, The Atom, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Firestorm, Malcom Merlyn, Ra's al Ghul, Reverse Flash and even Dr. Martin Stein. Check it out below:

The first rule of superhero fight club? Geek the eff out over superhero fight club. The CW's latest Arrow/Flash promo features the Arrow (Stephen Amell) bringing the Flash (Grant Gustin) down to the basement of what is formerly known as Queen Consolidated to participate in –what else?—a superhero fight club. In the no-rules arena, Canary (Katie Cassidy) fights Arsenal (Colton Haynes), Flash has a showdown with Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanaugh), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) has a series fanboy moment over Firestorm (Robbie Amell), and it's basically a bunch of superheroes geeking out over each other in the only way they know how: with violence. Super cool, well-choreographed violence, »
Both of The CW's hit superhero shows Arrow and The Flash are winding down with their third and first seasons, respectfully. There have already been crossover episodes between both shows, and The CW is even developing yet another spinoff, which will bring in select heroes and villains from each show. Today, The CW has revealed a fun new trailer, which doesn't offer any new footage from either show, but reveals how they all let off steam, by forming a "superhero fight club." The trailer begins with Oliver (Stephen Amell) introducing Barry (Grant Gustin) to a secret area of what appears to be the Palmer Industries building, where these characters all engage in hand-to-hand combat within a massive steel cage.
The trailer shows characters such as Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and Arsenal (Colton Haynes) squaring off against the Dark Archer (John Barrowman), while Arrow squares off against Ra's al Ghul (Matthew Nable »
While both Arrow and The Flash are closing out their respective seasons on The CW, the network is developing an Arrow / Flash Spinoff, which will feature characters from both hit shows. Today we have word from Spoiler TV that the series hs been given the "tentative title" of The Atom, named after Brandon Routh's character who has already been confirmed as a part of the show. However, the site reveals that the title is not final, and it may change before production.
When the project was first announced back in February, Atom was one of four characters to be confirmed, along with Caity Lotz, who played Black Canary on Arrow before she was killed in the Season 3 premiere, and The Flash stars Victor Garber (Firestorm) and Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold). Since then, the series has added Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl, Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter. »

Question: Anything new and scoopy on The Good Wife? —Brandon
Ausiello: This is new, scoopy and curious: I hear CBS has quietly extended the contracts of the primary cast — that includes Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski and Matt Czuchry — for two more seasons beyond the current sixth. That’s interesting coming off of Good Wife cocreator Robert King’s comments in last week’s Ask Ausiello, in which he hinted that even though he always envisioned the show ending after seven seasons, »
Here’s more news from the still-unnamed The Flash-Arrow spin-off, which will feature a gaggle of super heroes that somehow (Somehow!) have not yet been involved in the already over-stuffed DC universe. Deadline reports that Arthur Darvill, the young British actor who many may know from his recent work on Doctor Who, is set to portray time-traveling lumberjack-type Rip Hunter in the series, which will be helmed by Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim. Of course, its unclear if the Hunter of this narrative will be the bearded juggernaut that appears in the DC pages, or if his costume will be anything like the gloriously ridiculous red-and-green suit that the time explorer dons in the comics. [caption id="attachment_364528" align="alignright" width="348"] Image via The CW[/caption] The announcement of Darvill’s inclusion in the show comes on the heels of Ciara Renée being cast as Hawkgirl. Both of these characters »

Deadline reports that Ciara Renee will play Hawkgirl -- whose real name is Kendra Saunders -- in the still-untitled series, which will bring together the casts of the above superhero series as well as some new characters. Per the trade:
In the new series, Saunders is a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker Hawkgirl.
... Renée joins Brandon Routh (Arrow's Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (The Flash's Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (The Flash's Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein) and Caity Lotz whose role is still Tbd.
Renee, a relative newcomer, is currently best-known for her work on Broadway, »

If Arthur Darvill was one of your favourite things about the Ponds-in-the-tardis tenure of Doctor Who, you’re in luck – the former Rory Williams actor has signed up for a hefty role in another geeky TV show, the crossover/spin-off show from The CW’s Arrow and The Flash.
The actor – who you might also know from Broadchurch, or his stint in the West End version of Once - picked up one of those rumoured roles we reported on earlier this month. Specifically, he’s landed the role that we then knew as ‘the traveller’ (“a Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission”).
Now, though, we know that his character is officially Rip Hunter, »
The CW has added two familiar DC Comics characters to the cast of the upcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off, with Ciara Renee (Law & Order: Svu) set to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl, and Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) signing on as Rip Hunter.
The character description for Kendra Saunders describes her as “a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker…Hawkgirl.”
Meanwhile, Rip Hunter is described as “a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.”
The as-yet-untitled spin-off is being eyed for a midseason premiere, and also features Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell »

The CW Network has added yet another actor to its Arrow / Flash Spinoff cast, bringing aboard Doctor Who star Arthur Darvill to play DC Comics character Rip Hunter. We reported earlier this month that the spinoff will feature three characters from the DC Comics who have never been featured on a TV show before, with Rip Hunter being the second of these mystery roles to be cast. Here's the description of his character, previously known as "The Traveler," from this month's earlier report.
"Described as a "Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances."
The news comes just hours after »

As TVLine correctly predicted (hey, we’re 1-for-2!), Darvill’s character is Rip Hunter, a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.
