Earlier in the week came a report suggesting two exciting possibilities for the onscreen DC TV universe that both "Arrow" and "The Flash" are a part of.
The first is that characters from "The Flash" would pop up in CBS' "Supergirl" series towards the end of that show's first season. The second is that Matt Ryan's appearance as John Constantine would potentially continue in a second season of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow".
Now, Bleeding Cool has added to that report with some additional details. The first is that should CBS order the 'back nine' episodes for "Supergirl," the crossover will be "deemed as a requirement" as it's part of a storyline arc from the comics about New Krypton.
Said comic saw 100,000 Kryptonians come to Earth after Brainiac freed them from the Bottle City of Kandor, with a new planet being built for them. How much of said storyline could »

Take another look @ Mad Magazine's classic 1954 "Archie" parody "Starchie", by Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder, on the news that producer Greg Berlanti of "Arrow" fame, is developing the series "Riverdale", using "Archie Comics" characters , with "...a twisted 'Twin Peaks' influence...", plus take a look @ the original "Riverdale" TV pilot :
"...Twin Peaks had some very funny black humor stuff to it.
"Obviously it was very serious as well. So that kind of balance is what we’re going to try to strike with the show..."
"Starchie" featured characters 'Starchie Standrews', 'Bottleneck', 'Mr. Weathernot', 'Salonica', 'Biddy' and 'Wedgie Van Smelt'.
"...'Bottleneck' frames 'Starchie' so that Starchie goes to prison and Bottleneck can take over the girls and rackets at the 'Riverdale' high school..."

After the misery of Season 3, Arrow has made some considerable strides in its efforts to be lighter this year. Granted, there’s still death, violence, threats, and chaos, but at least now the heroes will crack the occasional smile, and maybe even a joke. It’s not at the levels of The Flash, but nor should it be. Arrow, after all, is something else.
Aside from the tone, this season has done a lot of other things really well. It’s established Thea as a proper member of Team Arrow, gave us some Og action, brought Diggle back to the fore, and thankfully has restored Felicity to being the awesome character of Season 1 and 2, instead of simply being the love interest of last year. As she pointed out, she always was badass.
Best of all, though, has been the addition of Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk. Charming and menacing in equal measure, »

The CW's Arrow and The Flash are getting ready for their big crossover event next week, which airs over two nights on December 1 and 2. Earlier this month, Arrow already gave fans a much different crossover, when they brought in Matt Ryan to reprise his role as John Constantine from NBC's canceled series Constantine in the November 4 episode entitled Haunted. A new report from Bleeding Cool reveals that The CW is considering bringing Constantine back for DC's Legends of Tomorrow, if the network orders a second season.
The unconfirmed report reveals that The CW is considering radically altering the cast for each season of http://movieweb.com/dc-legends-tomorrow-negative-woman-stephanie-corneliussen/DC's Legends of Tomorrow. This model has been compared to the animated series entitled Justice League Unlimited. The network's plan is to reportedly bring on Matt Ryan as Constantine as a series regular, and the report also claims that The Vampire Diaries »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Doctor Who, The Good Wife and Chicago Fire!
1 | Has Jessica Jones given young women the easiest (and a modest!) superhero costume to pull off? (That said, doesn’t it kind of look like Shiri Appleby’s UnREAL wardrobe?) And after so many start-and-stops, has Rachael Taylor (Charlie’s Angels, 666 Park, Crisis…) finally found herself a winner?

The first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has plucked a number of heroes and villains from the worlds of Arrow and The Flash for season one, but most exciting of all is that it will add Hawkman and Hawkgirl, two characters set to first appear in next week’s crossover between the two CW shows. That, of course, begs the question of which other new additions future seasons of the show could add.
Well, according to a new report, the plan is for each season of Legends of Tomorrow to completely change the cast and missions as it goes along. That’s both a good and bad thing, especially as Arrow and The Flash have now introduced almost countless supporting characters who could very easily hold their own in a show like this.

If you’ve been itching to see Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl team up with Grant Gustin’s Flash, and / or you’re desperate to see more of Matt Ryan’s Constantine, then Bleeding Cool may have some good news for you.
According to the site, if CBS commissions the “back nine” episodes of Supergirl’s first season, plans are afoot for a crossover with The CW’s hit superhero show The Flash. CBS has previously played down any talk of crossovers, but is apparently keen for a ratings boost in an attempt to counter dwindling viewing figures.
Meanwhile, there are also claims that following his guest appearance in Arrow this season, Matt Ryan could be returning to the role of John Constantine once again to join the cast of the upcoming spinoff DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for its second season in 2017.

The on screen DC TV universe that began over on The CW may be getting a lot more complicated with rumors juicier than a hot turkey hitting today.
Bleeding Cool reports that plans are in place for CBS to introduce the main cast of the CW's "The Flash" to Supergirl for a crossover episode that would be scheduled for next May during sweeps week.
Talk of such a possibility has been around for some time as the shows are handled by the same producers and production company, but being on different networks meant the decision was up to CBS who initially has wanted "Supergirl" to fly alone.
However, with the show's strong premiere ratings now falling, it's time to start finding ways to generate new interest. All this would depend upon CBS picking up the option for the 'back nine' and bringing the "Supergirl" season up to 22 episodes - something »

DC is getting ever-closer to its dream of having a shared cinematic universe and a superhero team of its own to rival Marvel’s Avengers at the box office. The ongoing war between the two venerable companies may have started at the newsstands, but the real battle is now being fought in the cinemas and getting the Justice League onscreen is now DC’s main priority. A lot of the groundwork is being done in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but there are still some important roles that remain unfilled (officially at least).
DC is already making some of these characters more popular with the general public through TV shows such as Arrow, The Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow but unusually they aren’t looking to bring the pr-established versions and their actors onto the screen. Instead Warner and DC are casting separate cinematic counterparts and reintroducing »

This might not come as a huge surprise, but we thought you’d like to know that Sky 1 has picked up the rights to the UK broadcast of Legends Of Tomorrow, the latest DC Comics show from American network The CW.
The show unites characters from Arrow and The Flash – including Caity Lotz’ White Canary, Brandon Routh’s Atom and Victor Garber’s Firestorm – for a unique time-travelling mission led by mysterious newcomer Rip Hunter, played by Doctor Who and Broadchurch alum Arthur Darvill.
Here’s what Sky 1’s head honcho Adam MacDonald had to say on the matter…
“Hot on the heels of the amazing success of Supergirl, I’m really pleased to announce that another exciting comic-book drama is coming to the channel. From the »
23 years ago today, Disney continued its renaissance with the release of “Aladdin,” and Abu, Aladdin, Jasmine, the magic carpet, and the Genie quickly found their way into Disney fans’ hearts. Part of an era for the House of Mouse that’s known as the Disney Renaissance, the movie that showed us a whole new world was released between 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” and 1994’s “The Lion King.” It was the film that started the trend that continues to this day: Celebrities dominating voice acting in animated films. Before the late Robin Williams lent his winning energy to the Genie, voice acting was almost exclusively in the realm of people specifically trained to provide voices for animated characters. Though our favorite street rat-turned-prince got his name in the title, the Genie is the character audiences really responded to, and that continues today: He’s the most memorable part of the »

One of the biggest differences between Marvel and DC's approach to television has been that of how the properties are linked. Marvel has opted to include all its film and TV properties as part of the same cinematic universe, whereas DC is not only keeping its film and TV worlds separate but allowing the TV properties to go off into either their individual or combined universes.
The biggest difference is this allows multiple versions of the same DC character to appear at any one time - from both Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller playing the small and big screen versions of The Flash respectively, to a show like "Gotham" having essentially free reign to develop whatever villains they want. If Marvel's "Daredevil" wants to use Thor, they'll need Chris Hemsworth to cameo in the role.
