The early timing of Comic-Con 2015 prevented The Flash or Arrow from debuting any new footage of the fall, despite a myriad set photo teases since, but it seems Barry Allen has won the race. Watch The Flash face off against Atom Smasher, and check out Barry’s Bat-Signal in our first official Season 2 teaser footage!

FOX’s Gotham has been reticent to use more notable Batman villains in recurring roles (instead making near everyone a series regular), but the FOX DC drama will burn one off for its its take on Firefly. The flaming Bat-baddie will blaze through Gotham for a short Season 2 arc, but is it another setup for decades down the line?
It seems NBC’s unusual attempt to get back into the comic business after Constantine was just the tip of the iceberg, and the latest will literally have you seeing red. Calling all retired geriatric super-spies: Red is officially coming to TV with a new hourlong drama from the star-studded films’ creators.
The CW’s Arrow has a world of work ahead of it in Season 4, already returning Oliver to the vigilante lifestyle with some slick new duds and a new name, and it seems the ex-billionaire vigilante will have a shiny new lair to go with it all. Sneak a peek at the “Arrow Bunker” in new concept art from the fourth CW season!
Five different DC dramas will air on the major networks by early 2016, another even resurrected for a surprise crossover, and now the comic company has its eye on a new angle. NBC has put into development Powerless, a — and we’re in no way joking here — workplace comedy set amid the backdrop of DC superheroes and their destructive battles.
We’ve known for some time that The Flash would introduce a second (now third) speedster in Wally West, revealed last week in casting Keiynan Lonsdale, though the character’s familial relationship was left somewhat unclear.

We’ve known since The Flash’s first season finale that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would put in an appearance alongside Barry Allen, cemented at Comic-Con 2015 with the casting of Teddy Sears, and now the CW drama pays homage to its DC roots in a major way. Check out our first look at Flash Season 2's Jay Garrick, recreating a classic comic cover!
The untimely (and repeated) cancellation of NBC’s Constantine didn’t stop the rumor mill from suggesting that Arrow Season 4 might pickup the DC demon-fighting detective for a crossover event, though rights issues seemingly tangled things up. Whatever magic spell Constantine seems to have cast has worked, as Matt Ryan will officially reprise the role in Arrow Season 4!
Tom Hardy digs DC Comics. He was Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, and he was supposed to star in Suicide Squad until scheduling conflicts with The Revenant forced him out of the project (Hardy said he was “gutted” to lose the gig). In May, we got word that Hardy was also developing another DC project, though he wouldn’t say just what it was. Here’s how he described it at the time:
