In last night's second episode of Gotham, it's made pretty clear that The Dollmaker is the villain behind the kidnapping of various homeless children in the city. Although the character doesn't actually appear, it's surely only a matter of time before he makes his presence felt in future episodes. Fans of the CW's Arrow will be aware that the Dollmaker also showed up on that show in a second season episode, and was played by Michael Eklund. Could they be the same character? Well, though DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are behind both of these shows, they are on different networks and are (presumably) set in different timelines, since Bruce Wayne is just a child and Oliver Queen is well into his crime-fighting career. That being said, it’s not unheard of for networks to cross two shows over, and we know that Arrow's Dollmaker terrorized the city long »
Fairly early on in it’s second season, Arrow made a significant jump in quality, propelling it from the fun and eminently enjoyable show of season one to a rip-roaring adventure show that seemed to please die-hard fans and critics in equal measure.This leap in quality was felt in all aspects of the show: the actors all improved notably, becoming more and more comfortable in their roles; the budget had obviously been increased, lending extremely high production value. The action choreography, which was already one of the highlights of season one, ratcheted up a notch; the show crafted a superb and compelling villain in Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke; and the season long story arc was a triumph, culminating in a blockbuster season finale that left fans clamouring for more.
One of the best things about Arrow during season two was the inclusion of many »

Later on this year, geeks around the globe have four DC Comics television shows to look forward to in the form of Arrow, The Flash, Gotham and Constantine (and that’s not even including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Agent Carter). However, following the news that DC Entertainment are looking to add a live action Teen Titans to their line-up, the previously-rumoured Supergirl show has now received a full series order!
The Kryptonian cousin of everyone’s favourite boyscout will be headed over to CBS this time next year, which will round out television screens as the only American broadcast network without a superhero series on the air. Supergirl will be written and produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Green Lantern) and Ali Adler (Chuck, Glee), who will develop the series alongside DC Entertainment chief Geoff Johns. This is certainly promising news for audiences and »

Fans of The Flash know that the character’s powers aren’t limited to just running really, really fast. The Scarlet Speedster can run so fast, in fact, that he can also travel through time. And while the upcoming TV series on The CW exists in the more realistic and “grounded” world constructed by its sister show Arrow, a new synopsis for The Flash gives a pretty big hint about Barry Allen exploring both the past and the future with his newfound abilities.
Here’s the extended synopsis, courtesy of SpoilerTV:
Standing still emotionally since the day his mother was murdered (and his father unjustly jailed for the crime), Barry was taken in as a child by the investigating Detective West and raised in a cop’s home alongside West’s supersmart daughter (and Barry’s dream girl) Iris. But when an unexpected and devastating accident at the S.T. »

As Arrow gears up for its third season, executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg have been doing the promotional rounds to discuss the upcoming return of the hit DC show, promising that the new season will see a shift back towards the realistic and grounded tone of the first, as well as touching up the introduction of the new villain, Ra’s al Ghul.
“We’re not really planning on revisiting superpowers or enhanced abilities during season three,” Guggenheim tells Kfi Am 640 (via Cbr). “We are really returning to the show’s roots of a very grounded world where it’s very realistic. We may take occasional artistic license with things, but for the most part, everything is pretty well and truly grounded in real-life things and real-life science.” Guggenheim continued, “I think what people will find when they watch season three is that the operatic scope of season »

According to VancouverFilm.Net, the upcoming 'Arrow', 'Flash', TV series cross-over episode starts shooting September 29 in Vancouver, titled "The Brave and The Bold", in homage to several DC Comics' titles of the same name:
"The Brave and the Bold" is the title shared by many comic book series published by DC Comics, the first published from 1955 to 1983. It was followed by a mini-series in 1991 and 1999, then revived as an ongoing title in 2007.

The Flash races onto the small screen in just over a week from now as The CW’s Arrow spin-off show gets underway, and a detailed new synopsis for the pilot episode ‘City of Heroes’ has arrived online, which we have for you here…
From the Arrow creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter, The Flash is a fast-paced super hero drama that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. Written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows Central City Police scientist Barry Allen, an everyday guy with the heart of a hero and the genuine desire to help others.

Great comic book heroes tend to be shaped by great villains, and Arrow is no exception. With Season 2 of the series the show’s writers swung for the fences, pitting Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) up against one of the deadliest men in the DC Comics universe: Deathstroke a.k.a. Slade Wilson. With that supervillain now stepping aside for Ra’s al Ghul himself, actor Manu Bennett hints that fans haven’t seen the last of Deathstroke – not if the showrunners get their way, that is.
Anyone who followed along with Oliver Queen’s battle against Wilson’s forces knows that the superhuman killer got what was coming to him. But even if Wilson ended up return to ‘the island,’ dwelling alone ...

Bennett's character served as the central antagonist of the show's second season. Appearing at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con (via ComicBook.com), Bennett was asked when we might see his return to The CW series:
"Realistically, when we talk about storyline, they threw me into a really interesting place, Purgatory. And you know, I'm left at the end, shaking the bars, going, 'I keep my promises, kid.' And I think I meant it. So I don't think that they are just going to let that voice subside into the vast abyss.
But at this stage, I don't know. They said at the end of the season last year, they said, 'Look, we want you back. We want you back. »

Manu Bennett has arguably been one of The best parts of Arrow since he first appeared as Slade Wilson in the first season, with his take on the costumed Deathstroke during the second taking the character to a level which has seen many fans demand that he play the villain on the big screen. During a recent appearance at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con (via ComicBook.com), the actor was asked when we might see him return to The CW series. "Realistically, when we talk about storyline, they threw me into a really interesting place, Purgatory. And you know, I’m left at the end, shaking the bars, going, ‘I keep my promises, kid.’ And I think I meant it. So I don’t think that they are just going to let that voice subside into the vast abyss." So, quite a vague answer there, but Bennett would go »
While Arrow season 1 was generally well-received, most fans would consider season 2 – which expanded the grounded and gritty universe by delving into superpowers, superteams, and more – to be the superior of the two. Not only did we get a Mirakuru-infused Deathstroke, we also met Barry Allen (and witnessed the accident that turned him into The Flash), the Suicide Squad, and the League of Assassins.Now, in advance of the series’ return, showrunner Marc Guggenheim is making the rounds to talk about what we can expect in season 3. If you guessed “less superpowers,” you were right!

You can expect Matt Nable's upcoming interpretation of Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul in the upcoming third season of The CW's "Arrow" to bear more of a resemblance to the comic book version of the character than Liam Neeson's turn in "Batman Begins".
Entertainment Weekly spoke with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg about the League of Assassins leader:
"Now that the Arrow/Flash universe contains people with powers and contains the Mirakuru serum, it gives us a bit more license to be a little more 'comic book-y' than certainly even Christopher Nolan set out to do.
A lot of the themes for Oliver's journey that we were discussing this season are wrapped up in identity. Can he be both Oliver Queen and the Arrow? A lot of that turned out to get tied up with what we thought of Ra's al Ghul and who he was and where he »

Liam Neeson said he would be willing to reprise the role of Ra's al Ghul in Arrow, but we now know that Riddick's Matt Nable will actually offer a different interpretation of the iconic Batman villain in The CW series. Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, and he had this to say about their take on the leader of the League of Assassins. "Now that the Arrow/Flash universe contains people with powers and contains the Mirakuru serum, it gives us a bit more license to be a little more ‘comic book-y’ than certainly even Christopher Nolan set out to do," he teased. It's going to be interesting to see what he means by that, though the first look we got at Ra's in an extended trailer certainly indicated that this version would be a fair bit different! So, what brings him to Starling? "A »
While it's more than likely just a way of paying homage to the numerous comic books which have held the title of "The Brave and the Bold" over the years (specifically the work by Mike Grell and Mark Waid (see below)), the title of Arrow's half of the crossover with The Flash is still worth getting excited/speculating over! There have been a number of Green Lantern references - specifically Ferris Air - in both shows, so could this be a hint that we're about to meet Hal Jordan or someone else connected to his world? I'm going to go with no unfortunately! Even so, titles like this are why Arrow is so well loved by fans and undoubtedly why The Flash will be too.

There are several reasons for my conflicted feelings. When I was a girl, Kara Zor-El was my ideal. Not only was she blonde and cute (two adjectives not customarily applied to me), but she had powers, she was unsure of herself, and she was always trying to prove herself, not only to her cousin Superman, but to prospective parents who shopped at her orphanage. I wanted to have a robot double in a tree. I wanted to have a flying horse and a super-powered cat. Sometimes I wanted different parents.
I don’t think there is anything innately “feminine” about wanting super-powers, robots or flying pets. »
