We're still a few weeks away from 'Arrow' season 2 premiere "City of Heroes," kicking off an all-new year in Starling City that will introduce the likes of The Flash and Black Canary, but why wait for an early sneak peek? 'Arrow' season 2's first official October 9 premiere photo has arrived, featuring Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev, while a new "City of Heroes" synopsis takes us all around the globe.
The 'Arrow'-verse was certainly abuzz this past weekend with news that 'Glee' star Grant Gustin would soon suit up as The Flash, but the CW superhero series still has a number of season 2 villains standing between here and there. Case in point, The CW has offered up its first look at 'The Dark Knight' star Michael Jai White's DC villain, Bronze Tiger, while a new "Year One" special will get viewers up to speed on the coming season.
Well, okay then! Earlier this week we'd heard that 'Arrow' season 2 was down to three candidates in casting 'The Flash,' to be introduced in the coming episodes as Dr. Barry Allen and speeding toward a potential spinoff next season, and the decision is in. Ex-'Glee' villain Grant Gustin will don the iconic red tights in 'Arrow' season 2, so what do we think of the choice?
Regardless what you feel about 'Arrow' breaking its "no powers" rule to incorporate the Flash into season 2 for a potential spinoff series down the line, casting announcements for the iconic DC speedster will arrive any day before filming gets underway on September 30. While we wait for the news, at least two names have emerged to potentially fill the Flash's yellow boots as Dr. Barry Allen, but from where might we know them?
Crixus and Naevia live! Earlier we'd heard that 'Arrow' season 2 would continue to expand its DC universe with the addition of famed character Amanda Waller, and it seems The CW's casting choice has already been intimately familiar with one of the regulars. 'Spartacus' star Cynthia Addai-Robinson will take the role, but what will Robinson's Amanda Waller mean for the 'Arrow' universe at large?
We're still not certain exactly how 'Arrow' season 2 will adapt famous DC 'Justice League'-r The Flash into its more grounded, realistic take on superheroics, but it seems a name to fill the iconic red costume will soon be upon us. New reports suggest that Dr. Barry Allen will begin filming before the end of the month, meaning our Flash will soon reveal himself!
Hello post-Labor Day rush! 'Arrow' season 2 won't let loose its fall premiere "City of Heroes" until October 9, but that hasn't stopped The CW from taking aim with a brand new trailer for the DC hero's second season! We've got Hood copycats, Bronze Tiger, Black Canary and more in a fresh new sizzle reel for the Starling City vigilante's second shot!
'Arrow' season 2 won't debut on The CW until October 9, nearly a month behind the other network premieres, though in the meantime we've kept up with the superhero drama's latest DC castings. Now, media from 'Arrow' season 2 has finally begun to leak out after Comic-Con 2013, highlighting the cast in an all new poster that doesn't shamelessly flaunt its abs!
Earlier in the week we cleared up a bit of 'Arrow' season 2 news that suggested an upcoming episode title would pay homage to Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul, instead referencing a more general take on DC comic group the "League of Assassins." Now, their leader has a familiar face, as 'Homeland' big bad Navid Negahban has joined the cast in another villainous role.
Earlier this week we caught wind of a rumor floating around that 'Arrow' could potentially introduce iconic Batman villain "Ra's Al Ghul," teasing the character's appearance with upcoming episode title "The Demon's Head." Apart from a few initial confirmations, the Ra's Al Ghul rumor has since been debunked, with one official caveat: Enter the "League of Assassins!"
