Just as last night’s Flash brought us a look at King Shark’s return, so too did tonight’s Arrow bring our first footage of a live-action Vixen! Megalyn Echikunwoke reprises her role as the DC superheroine in the first “Taken” trailer, bringing the might of the animal kingdom along with her.

‘Arrow’ finally brought Malcolm to heel for “Sins of the Father,” but who had the upper hand, Merlyn or Nyssa’? What about Felicity’s big reunion with her own evil daddy? Find out in our full review!
The CW knew what it was doing, to schedule three DC dramas in one week between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, and February 23 will kick off the most comic-bonkers run yet. Check out new synopses for King Shark’s Flash return, Vixen’s live-action Arrow debut, and a future Oliver’s arrival on Legends of Tomorrow!
Not that the series itself has lacked for red-hooded archers, Arrow fans are eagerly awaiting Colton Haynes’ return as Roy for this week’s “Unchained,” the character hopefully keeping out of that grave we’ve seen teased all season. Our first clip has arrived, and it seems more than Roy’s life is at stake: There’s also Oliver’s identity, and the internet itself.
Colton Haynes hasn’t been seen in the Arrow-verse for some time, and Roy Harper’s costumed alter-ego won’t be the only familiar figure suiting up for this week’s “Unchained.” See Arsenal return, while Felicity faces a new foe in the first photos from this week’s outing!
Legends of Tomorrow has already confirmed we’d visit a future Star City with Green Arrow successor Connor Hawke, as well that a unique version of Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen would show up, and the combined truth will delight fans. Not only will a future Oliver appear in Legends’ sixth episode, but Amell will sport both the famous comic goatee, and a major nod to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
‘Arrow’ sends Diggle and Andy “A.W.O.L.” this week against the mysterious Shadowspire, but did Felicity lose her flippin’ mind? Plus, which ‘Suicide Squad’ member bit the dust, and who’s the new ‘Oracle’? Find out in our full review!
Midway through its fourth season, Arrow has admittedly lost a step here and there, never quite regaining the heights of its second season battle against Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson. Stephen Amell surprisingly concurs, admitting at a recent convention that he hopes the character might return, as Arrow has been “missing something” since Season 2.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow will take their first official flight with tonight’s premiere, just a scant trip or two to 1975, but the DC drama will get much weirder with its comic canon in upcoming episodes. To wit, we now know for sure an upcoming will introduce Green Arrow legacy character Connor Hawke, and very likely the episode to do it.
It took a village to raise Legends of Tomorrow out of Arrow and The Flash, but after taking off in its January 21 premiere, don’t expect our DC Guardians to return anytime soon. Producers confirm that neither Arrow nor Flash will crossover with the Legends again this season, as well the likelihood of an expanded second season.
