As we prepare for the Arrow Season 4 panel at Comic-Con 2015, we’ve already been treated to a delightful surprise: Oliver has a brand new costume for the upcoming fourth season, giving our Starling City hero a fierce and highly-tactical new look as he prepares to re-enter the vigilante fray.

The CW’s big Comic-Con panel doesn’t get started until tomorrow evening, but they’ve already gone ahead and released a super-sized trailer that manages to tease Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. While the film side of DC comics seemingly stumbles around in the dark, this trailer is so full of confidence that it feels ready to burst at any moment. Who would have thought three TV shows starring B-level superheroes could look this epic and engender so much love from geeks and norms alike?
We’ve been eagerly awaiting news of Arrow’s Season 4 casting, particularly with regards to a certain Darhk-sided baddie. With CW hitting Comic-Con this week, it was only a matter of time before the beans were spilled, and it looks like they’re some good ones. Arrow has secured Neal McDonough to play the role of Starling City villain Damien Darhk in Season 4.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow pulled quite a bit of focus from Arrow and The Flash’s shared universe, so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the animated Vixen series on CW Seed. Now, the network has announced who will voice the iconic animal-wielding hero, as well as what Arrow and Flash stars will drop in on Vixen for some shared continuity.
Arrow and Flash fans have quite a bit to look forward to in the coming weeks and Comic-Con, hopefully enough to tide a bit of bad news. Both CW superheroes have set their returns for Seasons 2 and 4 this October, along with other network series the likes of Supernatural, Jane the Virgin and more.
Last week brought news that both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash would speed onto DVD and Blu-ray in advance of their fall premieres, but even those attending the massive Superhero Saturday at Comic-Con 2015 needn’t wait for new material. Check out the full gag reel from Arrow Season 3's Blu-ray release, while you can!
Emboldened by their superhero success, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow order made a surprising addition to both Arrow and The Flash, and the mad scientists of the network may push their experiment even further. Could Hawkgirl soon soar into her own series as well, after the Legends of Tomorrow arrive in 2016?
Arrow crafted enough upheaval by its Season 3 finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” to leave Season 4 something of a blank slate, but it seems the League of Assassins will remain in play. Not only has John Barrowman confirmed that Malcolm Merlyn will return this fall, but so too will the “Canary sisters” have a part to play in setting up certain Legends.
Arrow’s third season finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” left quite a few fans scratching their heads as to how Oliver Queen might return to the vigilante lifestyle of his DC namesake, but fans needn’t wait until Comic-Con 2015 for a glimpse into Season 4. Stephen Amell has offered a few cryptic teases of the fall premiere, including some trouble for Thea Queen, as well as a minor time jump.
Both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash set up quite a few Legends to live up to this fall, but even with Comic-Con 2015 ahead to give us a sense of the DC dramas’ future, hungry fans await an opportunity to catch up with Oliver Queen and the Scarlet Speedster’s most recent CW capers. Enter the full description and artwork of the September Blu-ray / DVD releases for both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash’s first run!
