Despite a few recent clarifications from Arrow and Flash producers, we still have no idea what to expect from the forthcoming Atom-centric team-up spinoff. The latest casting doesn’t tip the scale either way, though Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold will be relieved to have some company, as Prison Break brother Dominic Purcell joins the spinoff in his Heat Wave guise.
We still don’t know what to make of Arrow and The Flash’s untitled teamup spinoff, featuring Brandon Routh’s Atom, a returning Caity Lotz and many more, but producers aren’t shy about teasing new details. Find out our first taste of the major unknown DC villain in store, along with notable absences from the roster and more!
Both Arrow and The Flash had plenty to offer by their recent PaleyFest panels, teasing everything from famous Flash stories to major Starling City reveals, but at last we can see for ourselves. Watch both CW superhero dramas’ spoilery new sizzle reel trailers, as Arrow Season 3 and The Flash build to their season finales!
The CW’s Arrow still has an “Offer” to mull by his March 18 return, but the next week will see “Suicidal Tendencies” out in force as the squad braces for Diggle’s wedding, and Oliver comes face to face with Ray Palmer in his A.T.O.M. guise. Check out the face-off in the full photo set from March 25 Arrow installment, “Suicidal Tendencies!”
Hard as it was to imagine Arrow spawning yet another spinoff for Brandon Routh’s Atom, The CW did fans one better to develop a major team-up series culling players from both Oliver Queen and The Flash’s world. It’s still daunting to think such a major undertaking will come to pass, but the spinoff’s three secret DC heroes may yet have been revealed.
Arrow Season 3 took an unexpected swerve with this past Wednesday’s trip to “Nanda Parbat,” but Oliver has until March 18 to consider “The Offer” from Ra’s al Ghul. While we wait, check out the first photos from Oliver’s (latest) return to Starling City, creepy new big bad and all!
Arrow Season 3 has taken some unexpected swerves with its introduction of Batman baddie Ra’s al Ghul as a major villain, but could Season 4 be headed for an even bigger Bat-connection? A new report claims a mysterious “Damian” will tangle with Oliver Queen in Season 4, one who might just prove familiar to DC Comics fans…
We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!
Arrow Season 3 lets loose its 15th installment of the year with “Nanda Parbat,” as Oliver journeys to the League of Assassins' headquarters to rescue Malcolm Merlyn, while Ray Palmer completes his A.T.O.M. suit and Thea lays a shocking revelation on Laurel.
