According to, Ross will appear in a November episode, though it’s unclear if she will appear in the current timeline or via flashbacks.

As revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, the fifth episode of Season 3, titled “Oracle,” will shed light on Felicity’s unexplored past, including her time at MIT. With Arrow returning Oct. 8, that places the flashback episode at the start of November sweeps. »

Ra's Al Ghul Coming To "Arrow," DC Show Promos

27 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Saturday night was Warners and DC Comics' big night of TV series debuts at Comic Con with a special screening of the full pilots of "The Flash" and "Gotham" along with footage from the new season of "Arrow" and the new series "Constantine". Cast and producers from all four shows appeared on stage together, 33 panelists in total, making it the largest in Comic-Con’s multi-decade history.

"Arrow" showcased the 2.5 minute trailer I posted the other day... but with a little extra at the end. The last 45-seconds is a single scene confirming iconic Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul will appear this season, the clip showcasing the costume (but not the face) of 'The Head of the Demon' who will serve as the year's primary antagonist.

The version of Ra's Al Ghul in "Arrow" is expected to be more like the comics than the Chris Nolan film version. Casting is »

9 July 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

On hiatus since last year, Arrow's digital comic book series will return this September with executive producer Marc Guggenheim tapped to set the stage for what's to come in season three. He will be joined by fellow writer Keto Shimizu and artist Joe Bennett. The events of the comic takes place between seasons two and three, and will be made up of two arcs. "We've tried to put in all the elements that people like about the show, so there will be Oliver and Felicity banter," Guggenheim said in an interview with TV Guide. "We're going to see what's happened to Detective Lance after he collapsed in the season finale. A good chunk of the burning questions left over will get answered in the tie-in comic." He also promises that we will be introduced to many of the new characters who will be introduced in season three. The Flash »

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim Talks Arrow Season 2 Finale, Their Plans for Season 3, Crossovers with The Flash, the Shared Universe, and More

14 May 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Season 2 finale of The CW drama series Arrow is sure to be surprising, gasp-inducing and action-packed.  Finally bringing things to a head between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), the events in the episode, entitled “Unthinkable,” will push Oliver to the edge and force him to decide, once and for all, if he’s a killer or a hero. During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, executive producer Marc Guggenheim talked about wanting to surpass the bar they set with the Season 1 finale, collectively deciding that this is the last time that they can destroy the city, that the Season 2 finale will have a moment that definitely answers where Laurel (Katie Cassidy) will fit in next season, and whether they ever considered the possibility of Slade Wilson finding redemption.  He also talked about how the consequences of the finale will be felt in the third season premiere, »

Arrow Writer Marc Guggenheim Hopes To See Green Lantern In Justice League

3 May 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marc Guggenheim served as one of the writers on Green Lantern, but now serves as showrunner on Arrow. Despite at one point being attached to a big screen adaptation of The Flash, his role in the realm of live-action DC adaptations seems to be confined to television. Regardless, when IGN caught up with him recently, they quizzed him about his interest in seeing Hal Jordan part of Zack Snyder's recently announced Justice League movie. "I would love it," Guggenheim said. "At the end of the day, I just want to see a great Justice League movie. I think they’re putting a lot of really cool pieces into play with the first two Superman movies and I’m basically a sucker for a great comic book movie. As long as they’re doing something awesome, I’ll be the first one in line." While he obviously doesn't know anything »

On Season 2 of the hit CW series Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) has rededicated himself to his mission of being more than just another vigilante, and is attempting to become a beacon of hope for the city’s most vulnerable, as The Arrow.  With everything changing in both the present-day and the past, there are sure to be big reveals, lots of action, romance and new secrets, in the remaining episodes of this season.

'Arrow' and 'The Flash': Crossovers are 'always on the table'

7 March 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

With production beginning on the "Arrow" spinoff, "The Flash," it's time to jump the gun and start wondering about how the two shows will relate when both are on the air. Will characters travel between Starling City and Central City? Will main characters Oliver Queen and Barry Allen visit some more?

A recent interview with "Arrow" showrunner Marc Guggenheim made it clear that the writers of both shows are keeping the possibilities of crossovers in mind.

That said, it's not likely that the two shows would meet much to begin with. "Everything is always on the table," Guggenheim tells Collider. "But we also all collectively feel like 'The Flash' needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it's gotten its launch from 'Arrow.'"

If crossovers aren't likely right away, when might they come? "We trust our instincts to know when is the right time, »

'The Flash': Spinoff more sci-fi than 'Arrow'

10 February 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Flash" may be a spinoff of "Arrow," but the potential CW series will have more of a science-fiction feel to it than the earlier DC Comics-based show.

Greg Berlanti, executive producer of "Arrow" and the "Flash" pilot, explains the differences between the two shows in an interview with Digital Spy. With the sci-fi feel, "The Flash" has the option of bringing in more characters with super powers -- whereas "Arrow" mostly keeps to a heightened reality.

A lot of this has to do with the differences between the main characters in "Arrow" and "The Flash," played by Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin, respectively.

"Barry [in 'The Flash'] is different from Oliver," Berlanti explains. "He's a man of science and has more of a sci-fi bent, whereas 'Arrow' has a bit more of a crime bent."

The differences in themes will also reflect the worldviews of Oliver and Barry. "Barry »
