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.

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.

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!
The Flash finished out its first season as one of the stronger debuts in recent memory, setting a high bar for whatever pointed Flash crises we can expect in Season 2. The speedy CW drama has quite a future ahead, one that may include a new love interest for Barry Allen, as well as a certain “classical,” “square-jawed hero.” Okay, not THAT one.
Marvel may be sitting out Comic-Con 2015 (at least on the movies side) but good grief if DC isn’t pumping everything they have into San Diego this year, big screen and small. Warner Bros. TV has set a whopping 18 shows to have a presence at Comic-Con, including another “Superhero Saturday Night” for the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and more.
CBS’ Supergirl series suffered something of a mishap in leaking its pilot just days after being picked up to series, and now Superman’s cousin at last has a proper arrival ahead.

NBC’s Constantine has traversed a rocky road, suffering in ratings, enduring an accidental early cancellation, then an official one, and at long last John Constantine may have finally met his match. No amount of the supernatural can conjure salvation from Constantine’s latest fate, as showrunner Daniel Cerone says the show is officially over.
Arrow Season 4 has a bit of work ahead in recovering from a mixed year, but is creatively off to a promising start. Punisher: War Zone and fan-favorite director Lexi Alexander has been tapped to helm an Arrow Season 4 episode shooting this summer, so might Starling City come under all-out war? Er … again?
It’s early yet for a sense of how The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow will shake out between Arrow and The Flash, but the newest crew of TV superheroes may be around longer than we’d thought.
