Arrowverse: 10 Changes To DC It Gets Completely Wrong (And 10 That Are Perfect)

Since its inception with the advent of Arrow, The CW’s Arrowverse has explored several facets of the DC Universe. In some ways, the franchise’s exploration feels incredibly faithful to the source material from which it is derived. In other ways, however, the Arrowverse has evidently taken several liberties with regard to DC mythos. Often, the liberties taken culminate in something refreshing, fascinating even. Characters that were previously of little significance have become far more interesting and risen in popularity courtesy of the Arrowverse's giving them a moment to shine. Thus far, this has been true of heroes, villains, and everything in between. In addition to changing the status quo with certain aspects of DC lore, The CW’s shared universe of superhero shows has also introduced a number of original characters, a few of whom have made their way into the comics.

While much of the above warrants extensive praise,

The CW’s ‘Batwoman’ Pilot Switches Directors, Adds Dougray Scott

  • Variety
The CW has added veteran Scottish actor Dougray Scott to its “Batwoman” pilot as well as swapped in Marcos Siega for previous director David Nutter, Variety has learned.

The pilot, which stars Ruby Rose as the eponymous caped heroine, is being helmed by DC TV head Greg Berlanti, and was penned by “Vampire Diaries” alum Caroline Dries. Nutter has had to step aside for personal reasons, but will remain as an Ep on the pilot. The character made her debut in a December DC crossover episode which melded heroes from three CW shows: “Supergirl,” “Flash” and “Arrow.”

Scott is boarding in the role of Jacob Kane, a former military colonel who harbors a grudge against Batman and has made it his mission to one-up the Dark Knight in protecting Gotham. However, his disdain for vigilantes soon puts him at odds with the city’s newest caped crusader, who also happens to be his own daughter.

The CW’s Batwoman Show Just Cast Its Male Lead

It’s looking increasingly likely that Kate Kane, Gotham’s newfound protector, will be sticking around for the long haul on The CW.

At least, that’s according to network chief Mark Pedowitz, who recently teased that the upcoming Batwoman TV show will soon be of equal importance to the other five DC series on The CW – namely Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning.

If you’ve been keeping pace with the project’s development lately, you’ll know that Ruby Rose, star of John Wick: Chapter Two and Orange is the New Black, found herself chosen for the coveted role late last year, with Caroline Dries and Arrowverse architect Greg Berlant set to call the shots from behind the scenes. And now, with production heating up, the rest of the cast is starting to fill out.

Batwoman has a new arch nemesis: Her own father!

Dougray Scott (Snatch, Hemlock Grove) has joined the cast of the CW drama pilot as Kate Kane’s dad Jacob Kane, TVLine has learned.

Jacob is a former military colonel who commands Gotham’s private security firm The Crows. He “has made it his mission to protect his city better than the Dark Knight ever could,” per the official character description. “But it’s only a matter of time before his unwavering disdain for vigilantes puts him at odds with Gotham’s new caped crusader…who also happens to be his

Arrow May Have Spoiled An Upcoming Episode Of The Flash

We’re used to the Arrowverse colliding in the annual big crossover, but it’s always a nice surprise for fans when the shows blend together in smaller ways during regular episodes. For instance, Arrow 7×13, titled “Star City Slayer,” recently saw a cameo from The Flash‘s Captain Singh. As the Central City cop isn’t a major character, we didn’t expect his role to convey any notable spoilers, but actually he might have spoiled the ending of an upcoming installment of Arrow‘s sister show.

While speaking on the phone to Dinah Drake – teasing a Batman villain in the process – Singh mentioned an incident that had left many of his best officers in the hospital. Apparently, the attack on the Ccpd was committed by a “new metahuman freak” that was subsequently taken care of by Team Flash. And that’s all the information we were given. You might assume,

Oliver And Emiko Unite In New Arrow Photos

It really wasn’t that long ago when we were all speculating the identity of the new Emerald Archer in Star City. Fortunately, she was unmasked before Arrow took its winter hiatus. Then, when the show returned with its midseason premiere, we learned that her name is, in fact, Emiko Queen.

Since the big reveal, Oliver has done all he can to get to know his estranged sister. Still, it’s been a struggle, because she was forever hurt by their father running out on her. But to the delight of Ollie, she’s slowly gaining the ability to let him in.

From the look of it, the aptly titled “Brothers & Sisters” may see some sort of occurrence force the two to accelerate their timetable by working together on a case. If that ends up being true, I wouldn’t want to be the criminal forced to contend with two Green Arrows.

Are Arrow Season 7’s Real Villains in The Present And Future?

Speculation is one of the best sources of entertainment when it comes to superhero media. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that interested individuals have come up with a theory that the current season of Arrow will feature the Ninth Circle as the main villains for both the present and the future storylines, which is based on some pretty solid reasoning. However, before laying out that reasoning, it is necessary to mention something about the source material. What Is the Ninth Circle? On the whole, the Ninth Circle is a relatively recent addition to the

Arrow Season 7 Episode 13 Review: “Star City Slayer”

After the frustrations I felt during Arrow‘s 150th episode last week, I needed an hour like “Star City Slayer” to remind why I love this show, even when it’s at its most maddening. Unlike Diggle’s proclamation that everyone had each other’s backs, this week’s emotional payoffs actually feel earned. The action sequences aren’t about tracking down a vigilante-obsessed wacko whose motivations seem convoluted at best; instead, they’re tied to a villain whose creation we saw earlier this season during the Slabside arc, or they’re used to reveal the identities of some major characters in the flash-forwards. And while the “twist” at

Go Weird or Go Home: Why ‘Doom Patrol’ Beats ‘Umbrella Academy’ at the Superhero Game

Go Weird or Go Home: Why ‘Doom Patrol’ Beats ‘Umbrella Academy’ at the Superhero Game
It was when half the Doom Patrol traveled through a flatulent donkey to another dimension that I realized a line had been crossed. Probably in a good way.

We’re nearly seven years into the modern TV superhero-drama boom, which began with the CW’s Arrow. In those early days, when Oliver Queen was running around without a mask and only being called “the vigilante,” there was a sense that the people adapting comic books for the small screen felt they had to hold viewers’ hands through the whole concept.

Triple Threat Trailer Shows Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais Fighting (Exclusive)

David Crow Feb 14, 2019

Watch an exclusive trailer for Triple Threat, a new martial arts movie that puts Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Scott Adkins onscreen together.

Forget The Expendables. The team you want to be on is the one in which Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins, and more are throwing high-flying fisticuffs. That is certainly the very amusing appeal of Triple Threat, a new VOD and limited release cinematic event that brings some of 21st century cinema’s best martial artists together for an action movie spectacle.

The film, which is directed by Jesse V. Johnson (a former stuntman on films like Thor and The Amazing Spider-Man) is about a group of mercenaries going head to head with a group of assassins. May the best roundhouse kick win. The synopsis is below:

“A down-and-out team of mercenaries must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before

Arrow May’ve Just Teased A Batman Villain For The Batwoman Series

The CW’s Batwoman TV series is now raring to go, following Ruby Rose’s introduction as Kate Kane in last fall’s “Elseworlds” crossover. We know that the show will be set in a Gotham City without its Dark Knight savior, leaving Batwoman to pick up the slack, but we still don’t know what villains we can expect to see in the next Arrowverse show. A stray reference on this week’s episode of Arrow, however, may have opened the door for one major Bat-mythos foe to appear.

Episode 7×13 “Star City Slayer” saw Dinah Drake catching up with her old Ccpd boss, Captain Singh. Feeling down about her vigilante activities as Black Canary coming out in the open, Singh gives her a pick-me-up by reminding her how she infiltrated the crime gang of a mob boss named Blockbuster and ultimately prevented a gang war in Bludhaven.

Arrow Reveals Why Black Canary Is Scarred In The Future

To say that Arrow season 7’s flash forwards have raised many questions is a massive understatements. For starters, we’re still wondering what happened to Felicity Smoak (and why she seemingly had a child without Oliver), not to mention what’s up with the newly (re)introduced Connor Hawke.

Right now, let’s talk about one particular mystery that was presented early on this past fall when a rather sizable scar across the neck of Dinah Drake was revealed in a future sequence. On the one hand, it was cool to be given an assurance of her taking up the Black Canary mantle once again, but on the other, we were left asking how she sustained such an injury. Additionally, it should be noted how she’s never made use of her Canary Cry in the Star City of 2040.

Well, this past Monday’s episode, “Star City Slayer,” saw Team

Competition: Win Aussie crime thriller ‘Outlaws’ on DVD

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Outlaws, available on DVD 18th February 2019, we have a copy of the DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Altitude Entertainment. A violent power struggle threatens to tear a motorcycle gang apart, in a gritty crime thriller featuring the stars of Wolf Creek 2 and The Neon Demon, from the makers of Black Mass and Ill Manors.

Sons of Anarchy meets Macbeth in Stephen McCallum’s directorial debut, about leadership tussles in an outlaw motorcycle club down under. Following the bleak, unforgiving path of recent Australian crime classics Animal Kingdom and Snowtown and Chopper, Outlaws (previously known as 1%) is a brash and brutal crime thriller about loyalty and revenge. Ryan Corr, who was put through hell in Wolf Creek 2, is plunged into another maelstrom here as would-be biker king Paddo. A bulked-up Matt Nable (Ra’s al Ghul from the TV series Arrow), who also co-wrote the film,

Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 13 Review – ‘The Book of Secrets: Chapter Three: Pillar of Fire’

Red Stewart reviews the thirteenth episode of Black Lightning season 2…

It’s admittedly started to amaze me as to what the thought process behind the writing team for Black Lightning is. I recall commenting in a previous review that it seemed like they were doing what the Supergirl showrunners did in the first two series, which was to throw a bunch of ideas at the wall and see what stuck. With the amount of sideplots tossed into their already overburdened narrative, it begs a simple question- do they expect to be cancelled early-on at some point and are simply trying to get as much material adapted as possible?

Because we are currently living in the Golden Age of Superhero Television, we don’t exactly have a model to look back on in terms of what the average length of a serial should be. Smallville ran for 10 seasons, but we all
