ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. Today, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' teamed up with Empire magazine to bring bloggers the most annoying reveal of all time (plus a Burger King Kids Club-looking Quicksilver), both Marvel and DC beef up their TV spheres, and more!
The CW's 'Arrow' scored major points with DC fans by introducing Jessica de Gouw's Huntress so early into its run, even if her second appearance largely fizzled. De Gouw has been busy with NBC's 'Dracula' of late, but has now officially been set to return in 'Arrow' season 2, heading up an episode that nods to some major DC mythology! Will the third time end up the charm for 'Arrow''s incarnation of Helena Bertinelli?
We still don't know if 'Arrow''s 'The Flash' spinoff will be zooming onto The CW as its own series this fall, but its pilot supporting cast is at least picking up speed. 'The Vampire Diaries' star Rick Cosnett has joined the cast in a regular role speculated to be that of a major 'Flash' villain, along with Danielle Panabaker as someone with ties to the scarlet speedster's mysterious origins, and a villain in her own right!
The CW's 'Arrow' may not be destined for the big screen 'Justice League' any time soon, but that hasn't stopped the acclaimed Green Arrow drama from making plenty of "Tremors" all its own. The next episode will finally team Roy Harper with his green-hooded vigilante mentor, while Michael Jai White's Bronze Tiger bares his claws once more, and we've got the first photos!
‘Arrow’ season 2 lets loose its eleventh episode of the year with “Blind Spot,” as Laurel tasks Oliver's alter-ego with looking into Sebastian Blood for her, while Roy uses his super-strength to fight crime on his own, with disastrous results.
Previous ‘Arrow’ episode “Blast Radius” saw Oliver’s efforts to track down Brother Blood sidetracked by the arrival of DC bomber Shrapnel (‘Firefly‘ star Sean Maher), while Roy attempted to conceal his newfound super-strength, and Laurel investigated Sebastian Blood’s past, so what does the eleventh episode of ‘Arrow’ season 2 bring? Will the real mastermind behind Brother Blood's plan finally stand up?

With 'Man of Steel 2'/'Batman vs. Superman'/'Justice League 1.0' delayed until 2016, we have an additional 12 months to sort through the rumor mill and try to piece together what the heck is going on in this increasingly bizarre production. The latest tidbit should prove interesting to hardcore DC superhero fans and possibly a little baffling to the comic book laymen. It seems that the 'Arrow' TV show may take place in the same universe as 'Man of Steel' since series star Stephen Amell says he's discussed the future 'Justice League' movie with Warner Bros.
A few hours ago brought the latest casting news on 'Arrow''s 'Flash' spinoff, but tomorrow's all-new 'Arrow' installment "Blind Spot" will have another character seeing red. Mirakuru super-strength is alive and well in the first clip from tomorrow's latest episode, and to borrow from another super-franchise, Roy Harper SMASH!
The recent 'Arrow' and DC comics discussions from the TCA press tour didn't give us much insight into progress on the forthcoming 'Flash' spinoff pilot, but at least we know the casting has moved full speed ahead. 'Law & Order' alum, 'Rent' originator and 'Smash' guest star Jesse L. Martin has zoomed into the 'Flash' cast in a leading role, but which comic character might he portray?
This past week's 'Arrow' installment "Blast Radius" ended up a bit of a dud thanks to its one-off villain, but next week's "Blind Spot" thrusts Oliver and his enemies right into the spotlight once again. Laurel looks to be in trouble, as Brother Blood and Slade attack in the full set of photos from 'Arrow''s latest, "Blind Spot!"
‘Arrow’ season 2 lets loose its tenth episode of the year with midseason premiere “Blast Radius,” as Oliver's efforts to track down Brother Blood become sidetracked by the arrival of DC bomber Shrapnel ('Firefly' star Sean Maher), while Roy attempts to conceal his newfound super-strength, and Laurel investigates Sebastian Blood's past.
Previous ‘Arrow’ episode “Three Ghosts” saw a weakened and hallucinating Oliver forced to confront the super-strong Cyrus Gold once more, as a deeper player in Brother Blood’s plan was revealed, and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) returned to Central City and his date with destiny, so what does the tenth episode of ‘Arrow’ season 2 bring? Will Oliver finally become the hooded hero we know from DC comics, or be blown to bits first?
